Herod Philip, Tetrarch of Batanea, 4 B.C. - 34 A.D., Issued for Augustus
Son of Herod the Great, Philip was educated with his older brothers at Rome. He inherited the northern part of his father's kingdom. Augustus gave him the title tetrarch, not king. Philip was peace-loving and a good administrator. He was the first Jewish ruler to put his own portrait, as well as those of Roman rulers, on coins.
