Herod Antipas, Tetrarch of Galilee and Perea, 4 B.C. - 39 A.D.
Although he was not always sensitive to Jewish tradition, Antipas' coins carried no images, which would have violated Jewish prescriptions against idolatry. When Pontius Pilate, governor of Judea from 26 AD to 36 AD, caused offense by placing votive shields in the Antonia palace at Jerusalem, Antipas and his brothers successfully petitioned for their removal.
