Emperor Vespasian (r. 69-79 CE) issued a large series of coins commemorating the defeat of the First Jewish Revolt (66-70 CE), and Nerva (r. 96-98 CE) made coins to mark the end of abuses in the collection of the tax which Jewish were obliged to pay to Rome. The coin on the left is a sestertius of Vespasian , with the legend "Judaea capta". The right coin is a sestertius of Nerva. (The British Museum, London).
