Pagan Coin, 26-36 CE

The Romans issued this coin during the time that Pontius Pilate governed Judaea (26-36 CE). The coin shows the curved stick that was the symbol of the Roman priest that forecast the future. The Jews considered it offensive to their religion to be forced to use coins depicting pagan symbols.
