A Long-Neglected King of Judea
I noted another review of this book, with additional links on Agrippa II and related figures, here.

Herod Agrippa II had responsibility for the Jerusalem Temple at the time of the Great Revolt against Rome. That offers an indirect connection with today's observation of Tisha B'Av. See the essay by Prof. Eric Orlin noted in the next post.
