SOLD!

Celebrates the success of Vespasian and Titus in quelling the First Jewish Revolt and the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem

From Curtis Clay:
The same type is more common with IVDEA (one A omitted): RIC 305 (C). However. IVDAEA CAPTA asses as a group are rarer than the corresponding sestertii, which add a standing Jew or the standing emperor to the type of Judaea mourning below a palm tree.

New RIC 303 (R). The same type is commoner with IVDEA (one A omitted): RIC 305 (C). However, IVDAEA CAPTA asses as a group are rarer than the corresponding sestertii, which add a standing Jew or the standing emperor to the type of Judaea mourning below a palm tree.
