Customer Reviews
In A.D. 66, Jewish rebels drove the Romans from Jerusalem, beginning the Jewish Revolt. Surprised, Rome quickly responded by sending the skillful general Vespasian to stamp out the rebellion - little did they know the revolt would last five years! Rejoicing at their freedom, the rebels struck their own coins. Both the year 2 and 3 bronzes display an amphora on the obverse, used for sacred temple offerings, and vine leaves on the reverse.
