    I have a few that I have no idea about other than them being, I believe, Judea BC/AD time period.

    I can’t really help with identifying this coin, but I can, with complete certitude, confirm that this was minted in the ‘BC/AD time period.’

    It is Judaean. Third year of the war against Rome from about year 68/69ad. Second picture is upside down; it is a jar with a lid.

    Actually it is the year 3. The giveaway to quickly distinguish year 2 from 3 is that on year 3 the lid is on the amphora...

    Well, to be really certain, you always need to add a "ca." at the beginning! Just in case you're wrong and it's some era other than those two.
