OFFICIALLY MINTED COINS OF THE FIRST JEWISH REVOLT

'Judea Capta'

Commemorating Roman Conquest of Judaea

Struck Beginning in 71
For Vespasian & Titus

BAR: Roman Coins Boast "Judea Capta"

To celebrate the Roman conquest of Jerusalem, numerous "Judea Capta" coins in bronze, silver, and gold were minted. The Judea Capta coin testifies to the great importance the Romans attached to quelling the revolt in Judea and capturing Jerusalem. This image was designed and circulated to send a message of Judea's defeated revolt to all the provinces of the Roman Empire and served as constant reminder of the fate of rebellious provinces.

The coins were struck beginning in 71 AD just after the destruction of Jerusalem, commemorating its capture. "IVDAEA CAPTA" means Judea Captured. It depicts a female Jew in an attitude of mourning, seated under a palm tree. Vespasian is standing to the left as a Roman soldier in military dress with spear in one hand and paraxonium in the other, with his foot on his helmet. Josephus describes the Roman ceremonies at length (see - Jewish Wars VII, 139-152).
