|Holyland| |Bulk| |Lots|, |Judaea,| |Lot| |of| |7| |Roman| |Procurator| |Prutot,| |6| |-| |62| |A.D.||Lot|
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 Italy, as with other nations, early trade used a system of barter. Aes rude (Latin: "rough bronze"), used perhaps as early as the early 8th century B.C., was the earliest metal proto-currency in central Italy. In the 5th century B.C., bronze replaced cattle as the primary measure of value in trade. Aes rude are rough lumpy bronze ingots with no marks or design, some are flat and oblong, others are square, while many are irregular and shapeless. The metal is mostly copper with roughly 5% tin. Weight varies considerably with some exceeding twelve pounds and others under an ounce. Many smaller examples are fragments of broken larger specimens. A balance was necessary to measure value for commercial transactions.
