    Been wanting a pilate for a while. Rough shape but the horn and text is clear and that’s all I want (ps those are the sellers photos)

    They're hard to get in decent shape. Here are a couple of humble ones.

    Not a horn. A lituus.

    Oh yes my bad, although I heard lituus were played like a horn

    You are partially correct. It is also a noun as a horn. But in this case, in my understanding, it is depicted an auger's staff....which infuriated the Israelites (as intended by the Romans?).

    Is the reverse totally unreadable or can anyone make it out?

    Why did this infuriate the Israelites?

    The lituus was used in pagan worship

    Welcome to the Ancients Forum, @Clonecommanderavgvsvs ! It will be great to have another Judaean collector contributing to the forum!

    Here are two of my Tiberius/Pilate period coins.
