Judean Kingdom, Herod the Great, 37 - 4 B.C.
The decoration on the helmet was not present on all dies. On those coins struck with these details, the decoration has only rarely survived wear and corrosion. The decoration on this specimen, which is quite bold and sharp for the type, appears to be two ivy leaves.
