VESPASIAN AR DENARIUS - "IVDAEA"

Hendin 1488, RIC 1120, RSC 243, AVF/F, 18.4mm, 3.04 grams, Struck Circa. 71 C.E., Lugdunum Mint
 
Obverse: MP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG TR P around laureate head of Vespasian to right

Reverse: Judaea as a Jewess, veiled, with hands tied in front, head bowed, standing to left, palm tree behind her, IVDAEA DEVICTA around

A nice collectible example of a RARE Judaea Capta type that is very difficult to find in top condition. In fact, when found they are often fourees. The legend on this coin Judaea Devicta means Judaea is conquered. Its quite a powerful motif depicting in full size, a Jewess with her hands tied leaning against a palm tree, symbol of Judaea. The Judaea Devicta type is no doubt hundreds of times rarer than the standard trophy type.
