Judaea, Lot of 4 Prutot, Hasmonean Dynasty, 134 - 37 B.C.

|Holyland| |Bulk| |Lots|, |Judaea,| |Lot| |of| |4| |Prutot,| |Hasmonean| |Dynasty,| |134| |-| |37| |B.C.||Lot|NEW
The Roman province of Judaea was named after Herod Archelaus' Tetrarchy of Judaea, but encompassed a larger territory, parts of the former Hasmonean and Herodian kingdoms, including Judea, Samaria and Idumea. The name "Judaea" was derived from the Kingdom of Judah of the 6th century B.C. After the deposition of Herod Archelaus in 6 A.D., Judea came under direct Roman rule. Roman governors began to tax the population and had authority to punish by execution. Unrest was endemic in Judaea under Roman rule. The First Jewish Revolt, 66 - 70 A.D., ended with the destruction of Second Temple of Jerusalem and the Fiscus Judaicus. The Bar Kokhba Revolt, 132 - 135 A.D., ended with the Jewish diaspora. Hadrian renamed the province Syria Palaestina, and renamed Jerusalem, Aelia Capitolina.

In 6 AD., Herod Archelaus, son of Herod the Great, was deposed and banished to Gaul by Augustus. Archelaus' part of his father's kingdom (including Judea, Samaria, and Idumea) was organized as a Roman Procuratorial Province under Coponius. Marcus Ambibulus was Roman Prefect of the province of Judea and Samaria under Augustus.

The Hasmonean dynasty was a ruling dynasty of Judea and surrounding regions during classical antiquity, from c. 140 BC to 37 BC. Between c. 140 and c. 116 BC the dynasty ruled Judea semi-autonomously in the Seleucid Empire, and from roughly 110 BC, with the empire disintegrating, Judea gained further autonomy and expanded into the neighboring regions of Perea, Samaria, Idumea, Galilee, and Iturea. Some modern scholars regard the Hasmonean realm as an independent Israel. The Hasmonean rulers took the Greek title basileus ("king" or "emperor"). Forces of the Roman Republic conquered the Hasmonean kingdom in 63 BC and made it into a client state.
