Click for a larger photo
Emesa was famous for its Temple of the Sun, the center of worship for the ancient pagan cult El-Gebal (or Elagabal). El-Gebal, worshipped in the form of a conical black stone, was the Aramaic name for the Syrian Sun God and means God of the Mountain. Julia Domna was born in Emesa in 170 A.D. She was the youngest daughter of high-priest Julius Bassianus, a descendant of the Royal House of Emesa.

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

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.

Severus Alexander, 13 March 222 - March 235 A.D.

Click for a larger photo
Julia Maesa ruled as regent for Severus Alexander until her death in 223 or 224. Upon her death power passed to Julia Mamaea, the young emperor's mother. Mamaea governed moderately, advised by a council of 16 distinguished senators. Rome had difficulty accepting rule by a woman. There were numerous plots and revolts, the last of which ended with the murder of the emperor and his mother.

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

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.

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

Click for a larger photo
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.
RS74154. Silver antoninianus, SRCV III 8618, RIC IV 187a (R), RSC IV 126, Hunter III -, gF, marks and mildly rough areas, dark spot on reverse, weight 4.608 g, maximum diameter 22.3 mm, die axis 0o, Antioch (Antakya, Turkey) mint, 238 - 239 A.D.; obverse IMP CAES M ANT GORDIANVS AVG, radiate, draped and cuirassed bust right, from behind; reverse LIBERALITAS AVG, Libertas standing slightly left, head left, pileus (freedom cap) in right hand, long transverse rod in left hand; rare; $80.00 (69.60)

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.
RS73861. Silver antoninianus, SRCV III 8613, RIC IV 210, RSC IV 98a, Hunter III 50, VF, well centered, weak centers, weight 4.099 g, maximum diameter 22.5 mm, die axis 45o, Antioch (Antakya, Turkey) mint, 242 - 244 A.D.; obverse IMP GORDIANVS PIVS FEL AVG, radiate and cuirassed bust right, from behind; reverse FORTVNA REDVX, Fortuna seated left, rudder held by tiller in right hand, cornucopia in left; $60.00 (52.20)
