Herod Antipas, Tetrarch of Galilee and Perea, 4 B.C. - 40 A.D.

When King Herod the Great died, his will designated Antipas to succeed him. The rule of Judaea was, however, at the whim of Augustus, emperor of Rome. Antipas and his brothers Archelaus and Philip, all three raised in Rome, were each given a part of the kingdom. Antipas was given the title Tetrarch and rule of Galilee, Peraea, and Jewish Trans-Jordan.

Herod Antipas ordered the execution of John the Baptist. Pontius Pilate sent Jesus to Herod for judgment: "As soon as he know that he belonged unto Herod's Jurisdiction he sent him to Herod who himself was also in Jerusalem at the time. Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing...And mocking him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate." (Luke 23:7-15)

All the coins of Antipas are rare and very rare in better than poor condition. They were minted with an inferior alloy that was particularly susceptible to corrosion and wear. The coins were minted in Tiberias, a capitol city founded by Antipas c. 19 A.D. and named for Tiberius.
