Galleys and Other Ships on Ancient Coins


Gordian III, 29 July 238 - 25 February 244 A.D., Gadara, Peraea Judaea

Click for a larger photo To end their strong ties and increase dependence on Rome, when Roma annexed Arabia, the ten cities of the Decapolis were distributed among the adjacent Roman provinces. Adraa, Gerasa and Philadelphia went to the province of Arabia; Gadara, Pella and Capitolias seem to have been assigned to Judaea and the northerly cities went to the province of Syria. Still the prestige and honor of being a Decapolis city continued long after it had lost any real meaning.GB73437.
