Minted under the roman administration of Israel, this bronze coin evokes a pivotal age in history. Nero, still young and popular, sat on the throne of Rome, while in a Judaea yearning for freedom; the seeds of revolt had been planted. People who had known Jesus personally were spreading the new Christian faith throughout the empire. We can never know for certain who might have held this coin then, what occupations they held or what they believed in. Yet to touch such a token of the past opens up the corridors of time and allows the imagination to travel on an endless journey of discovery.
