The Bar Kochba tetradrachm is a rare and precious artifact with a rich history of the Jewish rebellion against the Roman Empire. It is named after Simon Bar Kochba, a Jewish leader who led the Second Jewish Revolt against the Romans between AD 132 and 135. During the revolt, the Jews minted coins to symbolize their defiance and independence. These coins have become an important source of historical and archaeological evidence of the Jewish Revolt.
