9789004208018: The Coins of Herod: A Modern Analysis and Die Classification (Ancient Judaism and Early Christianity)

Herod, ruler of Judea at a pivotal time (40-4 BCE) in the region's history, was Rome's most famous client king. In this volume, Herod's coinage benefits from a comprehensive reappraisal. The coins and dies have been thoroughly examined, resulting in innovative iconographic and technological interpretations. Study of the coins' presence in hoards, their archaeological contexts and geographical distribution, together with other typological, epigraphic and numismatic observations, have aided in establishing that all of the types were minted in Jerusalem. A new relative chronology of Herod's dated and undated coins is the most important by-product of this study. Finally, an attempt is made to peg this seriation to known events within the king's reign.

About the Author:

Donald T. Ariel, Ph.D. (2007), Tel Aviv University, is head of the Coin Department of the Israel Antiquities Authority. He has published over 100 articles and books on archaeological topics, including studies on coins, inscribed amphora handles and bullae. Jean-Philippe Fontanille is an independent researcher specializing in Judean coins. Fontanille has published numerous articles on numismatics, and is founder of the award-winning Menorah Coin Project, which has thus far classified dies of 12,000 Judean coins of the Persian, Hellenistic and Roman periods.

Review:

"The authors have done a monumental job of gathering available evidence and presenting it coherently. Their book is a "must have" for every numismatic and historic library. It will be the opening of all important scholarly discussions of the subject in the future." David Hendin, "Bibilcal Archaeology Review" 38 (2012) '"This monograph is accompanied by numerous well-chosen illustrations, including 96 plates of die charts and a comprehensive bibliography. It has been well edited [...] an important addition to the literature of the ancient coinage of the Land of Israel."' David Jacobsen, "Strata: Bulletin of the Anglo-Israel Archaeolocial Society" 2012 Volume 30
