Tiberius, 19 August 14 - 16 March 37 A.D.

Tiberius became Augustus' stepson when the emperor married Livia in 38 B.C. Augustus forced Tiberius to divorce the wife he loved and to marry his daughter Julia. Tiberius hated his new wife and escaped her by going into voluntary exile at Rhodes in 6 B.C. After the deaths of the other possible successors, he was recalled in 2 A.D. and groomed to succeed Augustus, which he did on 19 August 14. The empire thrived under Tiberius; however, his reign was marred by a conspiracy to rule by his Praetorian Praefect Sejanus and by his descent into paranoia near the end of his reign. Tiberius moved to Capri in 26, and ruled from there until his natural death on 16 March 37.

Tiberius, 19 August 14 - 16 March 37 A.D., Tribute Penny of Matthew 22:20-21
Click for a larger photo Jesus, referring to a "penny" asked, "Whose is this image and superscription?" When told it was Caesar, He said, ''Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's and unto God the things that are God's" (Matthew 22:20-21). Since Tiberius was Caesar at the time, this denarius type is attributed by scholars as the "penny" referred to in the Bible.

Judaea, Pontius Pilate, Roman Prefect under Tiberius, 26 - 36 A.D.
Click for a larger photo Pontius Pilate is chiefly known for the part he played in the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. Scholars disagree on the date of this type. If the "S" is actually a retrograde (backwards) "Z," the date is year 17 or 30 A.D. If the "S" is actually the Greek letter stigma, the date is year 16 or 29 A.D.
JD69881. Bronze prutah, Hendin 1342a, SGICV 5623, F, nice highlighting desert patina, uneven strike, weight 1.990 g, maximum diameter 15.9 mm, die axis 180o, Caesarea mint, 29 or 30 A.D.; obverse TIBEPIOY KAICAPOC, lituus (pagan religious implement); reverse LIς (year 16) or LIZ (Z retrograde year 17) within wreath; $160.00 (139.20)

Judaea, Pontius Pilate, Roman Prefect under Tiberius, 26 - 36 A.D.
Click for a larger photo Pontius Pilate is chiefly known for the part he played in the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. Scholars disagree on the date of this type. If the "S" is actually a retrograde (backwards) "Z," the date is year 17 or 30 A.D. If the "S" is actually the Greek letter stigma, the date is year 16 or 29 A.D. On this coin the last letter of the date looks much more like the Greek "ς" than a retrograde Z.
JD69880. Bronze prutah, Hendin 1342a, SGICV 5623, aF, weight 2.448 g, maximum diameter 16.7 mm, die axis 0o, Caesarea mint, 29 A.D.; obverse TIBEPIOY KAICAPOC, lituus (pagan religious implement); reverse LIς (year 16) within wreath; $150.00 (130.50)

Judaea, Pontius Pilate, Roman Prefect under Tiberius, 26 - 36 A.D.
Click for a larger photo Pontius Pilate is chiefly known for the part he played in the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. To give notice of the legal charge against Jesus, Pilate ordered a sign posted on the cross stating "Jesus of Nazareth, The King of the Jews." The chief priests protested that it should read that Jesus "claimed" to be King of the Jews. Pilate refused to change the sign, perhaps to emphasize Rome's supremacy in crucifying a Jewish king. More likely, Pilate was just annoyed by the Jewish leaders using him to sentence Jesus to death contrary to his own will.
JD72757. Bronze prutah, Hendin 1341, Meshorer TJC 331, RPC I 4967, SGICV 5622, F, green patina, weight 2.534 g, maximum diameter 16.2 mm, die axis 180o, Caesarea mint, 29 A.D.; obverse IOYLIA KAICAPOC, three bound heads of barley, the outer two heads drooping; reverse TIBEPIOY KAICAPOC (of Tiberius Caesar) and date LIς (year 16) surrounding simpulum (libation ladle); $150.00 (130.50)

Judaea, Pontius Pilate, Roman Prefect under Tiberius, 26 - 36 A.D.
Click for a larger photo Philo writes that Pilate had "vindictiveness and furious temper." Josephus recounts that after Pilate spent money from the Temple to build an aqueduct, he addressed a crowd of Jews. His soldiers were hidden in the crowd and when Jews began to protest, he gave the signal for his soldiers to randomly attack, beat and kill. Pilate was ordered back to Rome after harshly suppressing a Samaritan uprising. He arrived in Rome just after the death of Tiberius.
JD69885. Bronze prutah, Hendin 1342, Meshorer TJC 333, RPC I 4968, SGICV 5623, VF, both sides off center, clear date, weight 1.305 g, maximum diameter 15.1 mm, die axis 0o, Caesarea mint, 30 A.D.; obverse TIBEPIOY KAICAPOC, lituus (pagan religious implement); reverse LIZ (year 17) within wreath; $130.00 (113.10)
