Antonius Felix Prutah VF
Antonius Felix's reign (52-60 AD.) was known as ungraceful, he ordered the violent
and murderous repression of any possible rebellion. One side of the coin shows a palm
tree which is a Jewish symbol, that is probably indicative of his desire to maintain the trust
of the local population. The other side is unusual for a coin struck in Judea. Depicting
a Roman shield, it was probably intended as a demonstration of the unchallenged power
and control of Rome.
Quality: Very fine.
