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.

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

Pontius Pilate served under Emperor Tiberius, and is best known from the biblical account of the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. He was the fifth prefect of the Roman province of Judaea from 26 - 36 A.D. He is known from the New Testament; his coins, brief mention by Tacitus; Philo of Alexandria; Josephus; the Gospel of Nicodemus; the Gospel of Marcion; other apocryphal works; and a stone in the Israel Museum inscribed with his name and "PRAEFECTUS IVDAEAE."

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.

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.

Laodikeia ad Lycum, Phrygia, Time of Augustus, c. 13 - 37 A.D.

Luna, the Greek moon-goddess, was female, which seems natural because the female menstrual cycle follows the lunar month. But Mn was a male moon-god, probably originally of the indigenous non-Greek Karian people. By Roman times Mn was worshiped across Anatolia and in Attica. He was associated with fertility, healing, and punishment. Mn is usually depicted with a crescent moon behind his shoulders, wearing a Phrygian cap, and holding a lance or sword in one hand and a pine-cone or patera in the other. His other attributes include the bucranium and chicken. A temple of Mn has been excavated at Antioch, Pisidia.

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.
