Berk, Ltd., 211th Buy or Bid Sale, May 2020, Lot 183.) The seller's image: I thought that the details were a bit difficult to see in the seller's photo (especially on the reverse), so here's my attempt: * Regarding the identity of "Bacchius Ivdaevs," see Sear RCV I at p. 148: “Aulus Plautius strikes as curule aedile. The problematic interpretation of the reverse type appears to have been most successfully resolved by [Michael] Harlan in RRM [see Roman Republican Moneyers and Their Coins 63 BCE-49 BCE (2nd Revised Edition 2015), Ch. 18 at pp. 146-148] . . . who identifies the kneeling figure as Aristobulus [= Judah Aristobulus II of the Hasmonean Dynasty, d. ca. 49 BCE], the Jewish high priest, then held captive by Pompey in Rome.”) Here are the three relevant pages from Harlan's book discussing the identity of Bacchius: A fascinating coin, and one I'm very happy to have.
