Herod Agrippa I (Acts 12) was the grandson of Herod the Great.  It was he who persecuted the church in Jerusalem and had the apostle James, the brother of John and son of Zebedee, put to death by the sword. By the hand of Herod Agrippa I, James became the first apostle to be martyred.  Agrippa i was very popular with the Jewish population, and in Acts 12:22 accepted the people's praise as they shouted, "This is the voice of a god, not of a man.".    Herod died shortly after this event.

Obverse: Umbrella-like canopy with fringes.   Reverse:  Three ears of barley with leaves.

This was Agrippa I's coins struck in Jerusalem in large numbers in year 41/42 AD.   These coins were struck for use in territories largely populated by Jews, as there are no "graven images" (faces or animals) on these coins.

This particular coin measures 18mm across, and weighs 3.38 grams.
