If I remove the modifier from the original sentence, it reduces to the following:
"Caesarea was Herod’s city and being such it was regarded with loathing by the devout."

Now, the clause after conjunction "and" does not need to be a subordinate clause. Hence, all the options where "so". "for this", "being such" are there are wrong. Hence, B should be the answer.

If I re-write the original sentence with all the options and after removing the middleman, these will look like the following:

A. Caesarea was Herod’s city and being such it was regarded with loathing by the devout.
B. Caesarea was Herod’s city and as such it was regarded with loathing by the devout.
C. Caesarea was Herod’s city and for this it was regarded with loathing by the devout.
D. Caesarea was Herod’s city and so it was regarded with loathing by the devout.
E. Caesarea was Herod’s city and so being it was regarded with loathing by the devout.

All other options but B distort the meaning.
