Lucius Verus, 7 March 161 - February 169 A.D.

Lucius Verus was the co-emperor of Marcus Aurelius, and married his daughter Lucilla. Although held in high esteem by Marcus, he had a reputation for loose living and few mourned his death in 169 A.D.

Mt. Erciyes (Argaeus to the Romans) a massive stratovolcano 25 km south of Kayseri, Turkey, is the highest mountain in central Anatolia (3,916 meters, 12,848 ft). It may have last erupted in 253 B.C. Strabo wrote that the summit was never free from snow and those few who ascended it reported seeing both the Black Sea to the north and the Mediterranean to the south on clear days.

During his famous travels, Hadrian visited Judaea and initiated reconstruction of Jerusalem on the Roman model, with a temple of Jupiter replacing the Jewish Temple and restrictions on circumcision. This triggered the Bar-Kochba war, lasting three years and brutal beyond imagination. Hadrian sought to eradicate Judaism and renamed the city Aelia Capitolina, as inscribed on this rare coin.
