Roman Judaea, Pontius Pilate, Prefect under Tiberius, 26 - 36 A.D.

Pontius Pilate served under Emperor Tiberius and is best known from the biblical account of the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. He was the fifth prefect of the Roman province of Judaea from 26 - 36 A.D. He is known from the New Testament, his coins, brief mention by Tacitus, Philo of Alexandria, Josephus, the Gospel of Nicodemus, the Gospel of Marcion, other apocryphal works, and a stone in the Israel Museum inscribed with his name and "PRAEFECTUS IVDAEAE."

Pontius Pilate is chiefly known for the part he played in the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. Scholars disagree on the date of this type. If the "S" is actually a retrograde (backward) "Z," the date is year 17 or 30 A.D. If the "S" is actually the Greek letter stigma, the date is year 16 or 29 A.D.

This unlisted variant could be a mistake in which the LI appears as a N. Like the HZ variant, the letters LI were probably badly formed on the original document; then the engravers made the confusion with and N (Fig. 63-64). -- Coins of Pontius Pilate by J. P. Fontanille and S. L. Gosline
