Herod Agrippa I VF
Herod Agrippa, grandson of Herod the Great, grew up in Rome and was educated together with members of the Roman aristocracy. However, when he returned to Jerusalem in 37 A.D., he behaved like a politically correctmonarch. This is particulary well reflected in the
coins he struck. He ruled over both Jewish and pagan populaces. For the pagan areas he struck coins bearing portraits and figures from Roman mythology. On the other hand the one coin he struck for his Jewish subjects depicted three sheaves of barley, one of the seven agricultural species of the Land of Israel. The other side, instead of depicting a portrait of the emperor which would be offensive to Jewish population depicts a royal canopy.
