The only ancient depiction from Israel of an Augusteum appears on a coin minted during the reign of Herod’s son, Herod Phillip (4 B.C.E.-33 C.E.?). It bears all the hallmarks of the Augusteum type: a relatively narrow width (accentuating the building’s height); four columns at the front; and a single set of stairs leading up to the temple. The earlier temple at Omrit closely resembled the depiction on the coin.
