For decades the population had been ruled by Roman procurators who had to raise a specified annual tax, any thing above this they could keep, a system that encouraged gross exploitation. There was also a growing disrespect for the Jewish religious practices. Origin: Jerusalem Circa: 68 AD to 69 AD Collection: Jewish Coins Style: Year Three Medium: Silver
