      Agrippa certainly minted coins celebrating the 'victory' of the various
      Flavian emperors. He supported the campaign against the Jewish rebels throughout,
      but he never explicitly mentions the Judean campaign on his coinage. Since
      Vespasian and his sons (Domitian may well have been involved somehow in a
      support capacity) fought two campaigns, one in Judea, the other to seize power in
      Rome, I personally think the 'Judea Capta' thing is often taken too far, and
      the term should be restricted to those coins which explicitly mention Judea.
