Bacchivs Ivdaevs

Full Product Description

James M. Scott investigates the Jewish and Greco-Roman background of a conceptually enigmaticdenarius minted in Rome in 55 bce, on the obverse of which appears the legend, BACCHIVS IVDAEVS. James M. Scott examines a denarius minted in Rome in 55 bce which is visually fascinating but conceptually enigmatic. On its reverse is a camel, in front of which a male figure kneels on his right leg, extending a branch in his right hand; the legend reads: BACCHIVS IVDAEVS. Scott's study argues that the oft-suggested connection between Aristobulus' gift of the golden vine and the Bacchius Iudaeus denarius does merit further investigation. It is shown that the Latin inscription refers to the god Bacchus/Dionysus via an interpretatio Romana and is an expression of Pompeys Dionysian pretensions.

Bacchivs Ivdaevs by James M Scott was published by Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht GmbH & Co KG in July 2015. The ISBN for Bacchivs Ivdaevs is 9783525540459.
