- Matthew 18:28 ; 20:2
- This was the head of the emperor; the superscription his titles. Julius Csar was the first who caused his image to be struck on the Roman coin; and Tiberius was emperor at this time. This therefore was a denarius of Csar, [dinarah kesar-anah,] as it is termed in the Talmud; and consequently this was respecting the tribute required by the Roman government.
