Iudaea recepta – eine neue Legende auf Goldmünzen Vespasians


Vitale, Marco (2014). Iudaea recepta – eine neue Legende auf Goldmünzen Vespasians. Ancient Society, 44:243-255.

Abstract

Until now, Roman representations of the first Jewish-Roman War of 66-73 AD on Flavian coins were thought to be quite coherent, describing Iudaea as having been captured or conquered: coin types circulated with the legends Iudaea capta, Iudaea devicta or [Victoria] de Iudaeis. In contrast herewith, Iudaea was not a foreign enemy or a newly annexed province, but a province already established. But now, for the first time in the Flavian coinage, the exceptional legend Iudaea recepta appears. Compared with the other types, the new recepta issue presents a historically and politically more accurate view of Rome’s triumph over the Jewish rebels. It indicates the pacification of a province. Similar proclamations are attested on Augustan coinage.
