The citadel was a site of the most dramatic and symbolic act in Jewish history, where rebels chose mass suicide rather than submit to Roman capture. Great Revolt, or Jewish War (66-73 CE) - the massive revolt of Jews against the Roman tyranny, Emperor Vespasian suppressed the revolt in Galilee, and his son Titus captured Jerusalem and destroyed the Second Temple in 70 CE. These coins are called Masada coins because it was there that a large hoard of this type of coins was found during archaeological excavation. A Prutah is a Hebrew word which appears in the Mishna and Talmud (between the 1st century BCE and 5th century CE). A loaf of bread was worth about 10 prutot (plural). One Prutah was made up of two lepta, which was the smallest denomination minted under the Jewish kings. The Lepton (singular) is called in the King James version of the Bible - Mite. The Prutah was the most commonly minted coin of the Jewish Kings and Roman Jewish Coinage. Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE
