Judaea Capta coin. A bronze sestertius struck in Rome in 71 A.D. to commemorate the Roman victory over Judea. The coin bears two figures flanking a palm tree: on the left, an upright Roman soldier; on the right, a seated, mourning woman symbolizing defeated Judea. The inscription around the two figures is IUDEA CAPTA. The reverse of the coin depicts Vespasian, the Emperior of Rome, surrounded by his Latin title.
