Hendin 1276. TJC 127. AJC II 279,8. RPC 4849. Samuels 225 (this coin). A splendid example. Natural green patina. About Extremely Fine.A remarkable coin type struck at the beginning of the Jewish War (66/67-70/71 AD) proclaiming Sepphoris as an "Irenopolis" or city of peace, and also mentioning Vespasian some two years prior to his being named Emperor. This coin thus supports Josephus and Rabbinic writings which state that the Jews of Sepphoris did not support their fellow Jews during the Jewish War. It further supports Rabbinic stories that various Jews predicted Vespasian's future rise to emperor.
