Lonnquist (A re-attribution of the King Herod Agrippa I ‘Year 6’ issue, Liber Annuus 47 (1997), pp. 429-440) has suggested a reattribution to Agrippa II and to Caesarea, but we still prefer Agrippa I and Jerusalem. This is not accepted by A. Kushnir-Stein, Some Observations on Palestinian Coins with a Bevelled Edge, INJ 14 (2000-2), pp. 78-83.
Correction Corrected coin-type (post publication)
