Judean Kingdom, Herod the Great, 37 - 4 B.C.

|Herod| |the| |Great|, |Judean| |Kingdom,| |Herod| |the| |Great,| |37| |-| |4| |B.C.||prutah|NEW
Herod the Great, a Roman client king of Judea, has been described as a madman who murdered his own family and a great many rabbis, prepared to commit any crime in order to gratify his unbounded ambition, and as the greatest builder in Jewish history. He is known for his colossal building projects throughout Judea, including his expansion of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, the construction of the port at Caesarea Maritima, the fortress at Masada and Herodium. Vital details of his life are recorded in the works of the 1st century Roman-Jewish historian Josephus.

Legionary Token Coinage, Caesarea Maritima, Samaria, c. 70 - 150 A.D., Imitative of Hasmonean Prutah

The minima of Caesarea copy the bronze coins of Tyre, Sidon, Alexandria, the Herodian kings, the procurators, the First Jewish War, and the Roman Empire. Minimas are also found in other areas of what was Roman Palaestina and Syria, especially around the sites of the legionary encampments. They probably served as a token currency in the camps and their associated settlements. In his 1895, Account of Palmyra and Zenobia, W. Write wrote, "The sands of Palmyra are full of little copper coins. After strong winds the people of Palmyra gather them by the handful." Hamburger noted that although these minima are common, on most the types are obliterated and only about one in ten is well preserved.
