VESPASIAN AR DENARIUS - "IVDAEA"
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.
