The meaning of life can be found in a coin.

The Jewish War was a gift that kept on giving for the Flavian dynasty. This rare Judaea Capta semis was struck a decade after the fall of Jerusalem for Titus as Augustus somewhere in the East.

Even mere provincials had to be continuously reminded of Titus's military prowess in Judaea.

The coin did not come cheap ... but that's to be expected for a Flavian Judaea Capta. At any rate, I'm very pleased to have finally added this most elusive coin!

A great addition David.  Historically important.  Lots of nice Flavians added lately!

Thanks Jay. It was Devilishly hard to photograph. I still didn't get it right.
