Oversized replica of a Roman coin from the era of the Roman Emperor  Titus that commemorates the capture of Jerusalem by the Romans in A.D. 70.

The inscription, in a clockwise direction, reads “Judea Captured.”  In the center of the coin is a palm tree symbolizing  Judea.  On the left of the Palm Tree is a Roman Soldier and to the right a seated woman with her head in her hands—symbolizing the sorrow of the Judeans.
