Hadrian, 11 August 117 - 10 July 138 A.D., Antioch, Syria

|Roman| |Syria|, |Hadrian,| |11| |August| |117| |-| |10| |July| |138| |A.D.,| |Antioch,| |Syria|, |chalkous|NEW
In mid-117, Trajan, now a sick man, was slowly returning to Italy when he died in Selinus, Cilicia on 9 August. On his death bed, he made Hadrian his successor but rumor had it that Plotina and Matidia actually selected Hadrian after Trajan was dead. There was, however, no realistic rival to Hadrian. He was linked by blood and marriage to Trajan and commanded Rome's largest military force. Among Hadrian's first acts was to give up all of Trajan's eastern conquests. He then set out from Antioch to view the remains of Trajan, which were being escorted by Attianus, Plotina, and Matidia. He sent them on to Rome by ship and immediately returned to Antioch. He appointed Catilius Severus governor of Syria, and then left for Rome.

|Other| |Caria|, |Mygissos,| |Caria,| |c.| |350| |-| |300| |B.C.|, |chalkous|
Many Greek cities had names beginning MY, and this type has been attributed to many of them. Mygissos is most likely correct because nearby Nisyros issued coins with a very similar reverse with NI above the dolphin.

|Syracuse|, |Syracuse,| |Sicily,| |Agathokles,| |317| |-| |289| |B.C.|, |trias|
Although Agathocles was brutal in pursuit of power, afterward he was a mild and popular "tyrant." His grandest goal was to establish democracy as the dominant form of government for the world. He did not want his sons to succeed him as king and restored the Syracusan democracy on his death bed.

Laetitia is the Roman goddess of gaiety and joy, her name deriving from the root word laeta, meaning happy. She is typically depicted on coinage with a wreath in her right hand, and a scepter, a rudder, or an anchor in her left hand. On the coins of empresses, Laetitia may signal a birth in the Imperial family.
