Herod Antipas, Tetrarch of Galilee and Perea, 4 B.C. - 40 A.D.
Pontius Pilate sent Jesus to Herod for judgment. "Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing..And mocking him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate." (Luke 23:7-15)
All the coins of Antipas are rare and very rare in better than poor condition. They were minted with an inferior alloy that was particularly susceptible to corrosion and wear. The coins were minted in Tiberias, a capital city founded by Antipas c. 19 A.D. and named for Tiberius.
