A Bronze Prutah of Pontius Pilate. Pontius Pilate as Procurator of Judaea under Tiberius (AD 26-36) Obverse: Three bound ears of barley, Reverse: Simpulum. Found in the Holy Land. In very fine condition. Authenticated by NGC Ancients. Pontius Pilate is chiefly known for the part he played in the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. He is only known from the New Testament, his coins and a single stone discovered in 1961 inscribed with Pilate's name and "PRAEFECTUS IVDAEAE," which is now in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. -- Guide to Biblical Coins by David Hendin
