After the destruction of Jerusalem and the fall of Masada to Titus, the Romans
counteracted the slogans on Jewish coins with their own propaganda. They issued
smaller coins throughout the empire under Vespasian, Titus, and Domitian
picturing defeated Jews with the legend "Judaea". On larger coins the messages
meant, "Judaea Vanquished",
"Judaea Captured", "Judaea Defeated", and "Victory of Augustus". Such coins
were an intentional warning to all others under Roman rule about the foolishness
of a similar revolt.
[SGI 784=H 745] The green "patina" is the product of corrosion on this bronze coin.
