Mark Antony, Triumvir and Imperator, 44 - 30 B.C., LEG III

Click for a larger photo
This legion was probably Caesar's old III Gallica, which fought for Antony. Another possibility is III Cyrenaica, which was perhaps taken over from Lepidus. The III Augusta was probably an Octavian legion.

This LEG XV was probably raised by Antony and disbanded by Octavian. It is not likely to have been the XV Apollinaris, a legion that was reconstituted by Octavian.

A rare and very unusual coin with the image of Liberty but the legend for Liberalitas. Apparently the mint officials in Antioch didn't know the difference between these two Roman personifications.

Gordian III, 29 July 238 - 25 February 244 A.D.

Click for a larger photo
This coin was issued to gain the support of Fortuna toward ensuring the safe return of Gordian from his campaign against the Persians. But Fortuna was not inspired. Gordian would never return to Rome. Shapur's inscription at Naqsh-i Rustam claims he was killed in a Roman defeat at the Battle of Misiche near modern Fallujah. Roman sources do not mention this defeat and claim Philip, who succeeded Gordian as emperor, murdered him.
