Herod Agrippa I, 37 - 44 A.D.

Herod Agrippa I was the son of Aristobulus and Bernice, and grandson of Herod the Great. Agrippa spent much of his boyhood at the imperial court in Rome. His friend the emperor Caligula bestowed the former territories of his uncle Philip and Herod Antipas. Claudius later bestowed Judaea. It was this Herod that had James, the brother of John, executed (Acts 12:1-2) and imprisoned Peter (Acts 12:3-5). He was a very popular ruler.

Judean Kingdom, Herod Agrippa I, 37 - 44 A.D.

Click for a larger photo
Agrippa spent much of his boyhood at the imperial court in Rome and was close to both Caligula and Claudius. One of Claudius' first acts was a treaty guaranteeing Agrippa's kingdom, with the title "great king," and granting the additional territory of Chalcis to Agrippa's elder brother Herod V. The reverse of this coin depicts a victimarius (sacrificial assistant) about to kill a pig to sanctify the oaths of this treaty. Both Josephus (Jospehus, Ant. xix.5.1) and Suetonius (Suetonius, Claud. 25.5) wrote that Claudius and Agrippa performed this fetial ceremony in the center of the Forum in Rome.
