    It's the only one I have but I like it! It's Herod Agrippa I, AD AE Prutah I believe or King Agrippa. Obverse is an umbrella like canopy with fringes. The reverse has 3 heads of barley. I believe it's year 6. I got this from the Sallent collection a few years ago.

    Yes, you are right: on the obverse the legend is AΓPIΠA BACIΛEWC, which means of King Agrippa. On the reverse I can't see the year, maybe you can see it in hand. If it is year 6 the barley heads should be flanked by L - ς

    Reference is Hendin 1244; Meshorer, Treasury of Jewish Coins 120; RPC I 4981
