Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on Herods contemporaries in the west. First the context of client kingship is briefly discussed, after which the cases of Britain, northeast Gaul, Noricum and Mauretania are all examined. Imagery on the coinage shows how these members of distant aristocracies bought into the visual language of the Augustan revolution. Collectively the picture that emerges is that while the friendly kings on the northeastern fringes of the Roman world may have been the poor relations in terms of architecture and wealth, their outlook in the developing culture of the Augustan Principate was very much on the same lines as those of Herod, Juba and their ilk.
