HEROD THE GREAT AE PRUTAH, 40 - 4 B.C.E.

Hendin 1180, VF, 15.2mm, 1.57 grams
 
Obverse: Temple table (tripod) within circular border

Reverse: Cross within closed diadem, KING HEROD in Greek around

The prutah sized coins with the Temple table are quite uncommon and difficult to find with such nice centering! The obverse die was engraved much larger than the actual flans they were produced on, so that the actual full inscription never appears on the the coin.
