Herod is seen in the 7th episode of the 2nd season, Death Mask, where he asks Mark Antony for his support in claiming the throne of Judea. In return, he offers Antony a "substantial gift".

As of how substantial this gift would need to be, Posca, who is also present at the meeting, suggests 20.000 pounds of gold, which Herod, much to their surprise, immediately accepts. They settle the deal and Antony assures him the full support of Rome.

Before he leaves, Herod asks Antony if he also speaks for his triumvirate partners Octavian and Lepidus, worrying that they might appear later and expect gifts for themselves.

Antony affirms him that the three men speak with one voice and that the gift would be for all of them, while in reality he is obviously unwilling to share the payment with them.
