The "Lost Arch of Nero" is that decreed by the Senate in 58 A.D. to commemorate the Eastern victory of Cn. Domitius Corduba. It was located on Capitoline Hill. No trace of it remains today. It was probably demolished shortly after Nero's downfall.

Yes, the public structures like the Baths and temples were spared but his personal monumental architecture like his arches and statues were destoyed by the Senate, damnatio memoriae

I think this is from the Perinthos mint , compare: RPC 1758 or my countermarked Nero sestertius (same dies)

Would the owner of this lovely coin please contact helvetica by email (dane at wildwinds dot com) ? I am using the coin for wildwinds to replace a poor example and would like to add the owner's name.
