Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus, 161 - 180 A.D., Aelia Capitolina (Jerusalem), Syria Palestina
During his famous travels, Hadrian visited Judaea and initiated reconstruction of Jerusalem on the Roman model, with a temple of Jupiter replacing the Jewish Temple and restrictions on circumcision. This triggered the Bar-Kochba war, lasting three years and brutal beyond imagination. Hadrian sought to eradicate Judaism and renamed the city Aelia Capitolina, as inscribed on this rare coin.
