Arcadius multi-level campgate280 viewsThis unusual reverse may depict a tall wall with a door and 2 windows, or the upper layer could be a building that was actually within the city walls. Another possibility is that the lower layer represents the main gate in the city wall and the upper layer represents a section of the wall elsewhere that had 2 doors. (Ray Wilk)1 commentsraywilk

Augustus RIC 35963 viewsAugustus 27 B.C.-14 A.D. Moneyer L. Vinicius. Rome Mint. 16 B.C. (3.72g, 18.8m, 5h). Obv: Anepigraphic, bare head right. Rev: L Vinicivs in ex., Triumphal arch inscribed SPQR IMP CAE in two lines sur. by Quadriga bearing Augustus, r. holding laurel-branch, l. scepter; smaller arch on sides w archer on l. and slinger on r. RIC I 359 (R2). RSC 544.

This coin depicts Augustus’ triple arch, perhaps the first in Rome. Beginning as a double arch to commemorate his victory at Actium, the third arch was probably added to commemorate the return of the lost standards from Parthia. For a scarce type, this example is well centered and has good details on the reverse including complete legends.

"Eryx was a son of Aphrodite and Butas, a certain native king of Sikelia (Sicily) of very great fame, and he was admired by the natives because of his noble birth on his mother’s side and became king over a part of the island. He also founded a notable city which bore his name; it was set upon a lofty place, and on the highest point within the city he established a shrine of his mother, which he embellished not only with a beautifully built temple, but also with the multitude of his dedications.
The goddess, both because of the reverence which the inhabitants of the region paid to her and because of the honour which she received from the son whom she had borne, displayed an exceptional love for the city, and for this reason she came to be called Aphrodite Erykinia . . . After Eryx has bestowed upon it the honours we have described, Aeneas, the son of Aphrodite, when at a later time he was on his way to Italy and came to anchor off the island, embellished the sanctuary, since it was that of his own mother, with many votive offerings."

RIC 461b. RSC 240b. Unrecorded reverse die.
The construction of this temple dedicated to Roma and Augustus was started after the visit of the latter to the city in 29 BC. In 121 AD the city was destroyed by an earthquake so the image on the reverse is possibly that of the temple reconstructed under Hadrian who visited Nicomedia in 123 or 124 AD.

L.Mussidius Longus69 viewsAR denarius. 42 BC. 4,02 grs. Diademed and veiled bust of Concordia right. CONCORDIA behind. / Platform inscribed CLOACIN on which there are two statues of Venus Cloacina. L. MVSSIDIVS LONGVS above.
Crawford 494/42a. RSC Mussidia 6b.
The shrine of Venus Cloacina,goddess of purity,filth,sexual intercourse and the divinity of the Cloaca Maxima,was a small sanctuary near the Tabernae Novae (prope cloacinae ad tabernas quibus nunc novis est nomen, Livy III.48) on the Roman Forum,in front of the Basilica Aemilia.
The origins of the cult possibly ,dates back to the founding of Rome and the rape of the Sabine women ( traditur myrtea verbena Romanos Sabinosque,cum propter raptas virgines dimicare voluissent,depositis armis purgatos in eo loco qui nunc signa Veneris Cloacinae habet, Pliny NH XV.119.)
The erection of the first shrine belongs probably to the first period in the history of the Cloaca Maxima.
The existing remains,discovered at the turn of the XIXth century (1899-1901),consist of a round marble base ( 2.40 mtrs.diameter) with a rectangular projection over a slab of travertine and eight courses of different types of stone. Nothing remains of the small round structure with a metal balustrade and the two female statues,one holding a flower ? and representing Venus Cloacina,that can be seen on the reverse of the coin.

This type was issued upon the completion of the restoration of the Great Provision Market on Caelium Hill in A.D. 59: the Macellum Augusti, also known as the Macellum Magnum. It was built by Augustus and restored by Nero. Part of it was later transformed to church S. Stefano Rotundo by Pope Simplicius.

Marcus Julius Verus Philippus, known as Philip I "The Arab," was the Praetorian Prefect, and successor to Gordian III whom he possibly had murdered. After signing a treaty with the Persians, he returned home. During his reign the 1000th anniversary of the foundation of Rome (248 A.D.) was celebrated, and magnificent games were held on a scale rarely seen. In 249 A.D. a series of rebellions occurred, both Philip and his son were killed after their army was defeated near Verona by the forces of Trajan Decius.

The Temple of Divus Romulus is a circular building with a concave facade preceded by columns on the Via Sacra. It was probably a temple for Romulus, the son of emperor Maxentius, but it has also been identified as the Temple of Jupiter Stator and as the sanctuary of the penates publici. The building is located between the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina and the Basilica of Maxentius.

When emperor Maxentius' son Romulus died in 307 CE, he was deified and hence a temple was built in his honour. Coins commemorating Romulus often depict a round building with a varying number columns in front. Some of them probably show the round mausoleum of Romulus on the Appian Way, others might portray the temple, which has led to the identification of the rotunda on the Via Sacra with the Temple of Divus Romulus. The location would be likely, given Maxentius' building activities nearby.

The building was built after the death of Empress Faustina (141 A.C.) and was dedicated by the Senate to the deceased, who they declared a divinity. It was also dedicated to Emperor Antoninus Pio, as is stated on its facade. Around the seventh and eighth centuries, it became a Christian church, but its appearance today is mostly a result of the baroque modifications of Orazio Torriani (1601-14).

Due to the lack of any specific legend on the reverse, there has been a lot of speculation as to which temple might be depicted here. Some argue the temple to be that of Honos which had been restaured by Trajan a few years earlier. Others argue that it is the temple of Jupiter (later rededicated to Divus Traianus) also restaured by Trajan. According to others still, it is the temple of Venus Genetrix as the pose of central figure ressembles to statues of this divinity. Still others see Pax in the central figure and the temple is to be sought in the provinces. The central figure could well be Honos (compare with the left figure of the illustration in Numiswiki of HONOS ET VIRTUS).

The temple of Roma was designed by Hadrian (himself) in AD 121 and completed by Antoninus Pius in 141. It stood facing the forum, and was built back to back with the temple of Venus, which faced the Flavian Amphitheater. The two temples in one building were referred to as the Temple of Venus and Roma ("Templum Veneris et Romae"). Hadrian had to have the colossal statue of Nero removed in order to make room for the temples, which were built on the site of the vestibule of Nero's golden house. (He had Nero's statue placed near the entrance to the Ampitheater, and this provided the nickname, "Colloseum".) Their ruins prove both temples consisted of ten colums, and the coins suggest many decorative details.

Issued on the occasion of the completion of the temple of Venus and Roma in AD 141. This was the largest temple in Rome dedicated to Venus Felix (Happy Venus) and Roma Aeterna (Eternal Rome). Actually it consists of two temples back under one roof. It was designed by Hadrian himself (who, by the way, executed his architect for critisising the project) and dedicated by him in AD 135, and completed by Antoninus Pius.

Minted under Marcus Aurelius in joint reign with Verus, in honour of the funeral and deification of Antoninus Pius. Traditionally the structure on the reverse is called a Funeral Pyre, but there are good arguments to believe this is in fact a stone pyramide building called "ustrinum" where the ashes were kept: see an article at BeastCoins.
