Around the years 317 - 318, Constantine issued commemorative coins honoring three deified emperors: Claudius II Gothicus, Constantius I, and Maximian. It is not real clear when these coins were issued, but RIC assigns them to the years 317-18 saying there is evidence they were issued near or at the end of the Sol coinage. They are small AE3 in size (16 mm), but on flans that are much thinner and weigh significantly less than other coins of the period. Therefore they are generally regarded as fractionals. They were minted at Treveri, Arelate, Rome, Aquileia, Siscia, and Thessalonica.

Why these three emperors? Constantine claimed Claudius II Gothicus was one of his ancestors (probably not true). Constantius I was Constantine's father, and Maximian was the father of Constantine's wife, Fausta.

Q-001
"A similar coin, overstruck on an earlier denarius of Geta in Decius' operation to convert circulating denarii into antononiani, was shown on Forvm by Hispanorvm, May 2005.
I wrote the coin into my RIC, but it did not turn up in a Forvm search for "Hostilian Geta" now, so it has perhaps been deleted.
For readers without easy access to RIC, this rev. type is well known for Hostilian Caesar with the longer legend
C VALENS HOSTIL MES QVINTVS N C,
but is not in RIC with the more abbreviated legend of Quadrans' coin,
C VAL HOS MES QVINTVS N C." by Curtis Clay. Thank you Curtis Clay.

2.91gms, 19mm

The Alimenta was a welfare program for poor children and orphans. Credit for designing the program is usually attributed to Nerva, but it was increased and formally organized under Trajan. The Alimenta was funded from several sources. Probably, money from the Dacian Wars was used to initially underwrite the program; however, the long-term existence of the program was insured through 5% interest paid by wealthy landowners on loans and estate taxes. Philanthropy was also encouraged and contributed to the total funding.
Under Alimenta, boys of freemen received 16 sesterces monthly, girls received 12, while children borne out of wedlock received a bit less. The Alimenta was supplemented with a special young girls foundation initiated by Antoninus Pius in honor of his deceased wife Faustina. Municipal magistrates administered the alimentary funds and in turn were supervised by imperial clerks who had the status of knights.

Leopold Joseph Charles (Leopold I) (1679-1729), Duke of Lorraine and Bar (1697), was the son of Charles V, Duke of Lorraine and Bar. This medal commemorates further the many reconstruction projects that Leopold I, Duke of Lorraine and Bar, fostered during his reign, in this case, the reconstruction of the bridge in the forest of Haye. The reverse alludes to the fact that the bridge increased commerce (Mercury) in Lorraine and led to more abundance for its inhabitants.
A herm, referred to in this medal, is a statue consisting of the head of the Greek god Hermes mounded on a square stone post. Hermes is the god of commerce, invention, cunning and theft, who also serves as messenger and herald for the other gods.

The die engraver for this token was most likely Thomas Wyon but the manufacturer is uncertain.

Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727), was an English physicist and mathematician who is widely recognised as one of the most influential scientists of all time and as a key figure in the scientific revolution. Newton shares credit with Gottfried Leibniz for the invention of calculus and also made seminal contributions to optics. He built the first practical reflecting telescope and developed a theory of colour based on the observation that a prism decomposes white light into the many colours of the visible spectrum.
Newton's “Principia” formulated the laws of motion and universal gravitation, which came to dominate scientists' view of the physical universe for the next three centuries.
Newton was a fellow of Trinity College and a Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge. Unusually for a member of the Cambridge faculty of the day, he refused to take holy orders in the Church of England, perhaps because he privately rejected the doctrine of the Trinity.
In his later life, Newton became president of the Royal Society and became Warden of the Royal Mint in 1696. He became Master of the Royal Mint in 1699 and was very instrumental in developing techniques to try and prevent the counterfeiting of English coinage.

The reverse legend of this coin is unique in all of Roman coinage. It can not be a simple spelling error -- PRINCIPIA (military headquarters) for PRINCIPI (Prince) -- because it exists on coins from several different mints. Thus it has got to be taken as referring to the military training given to Crispus and his commission to Gaul in 317 - 318.

RIC 485

Eutropius enthused: To [Nerva] succeeded ULPIUS CRINITUS TRAJANUS, born at Italica in Spain, of a family rather ancient than eminent for his father was the first consul in it. He was chosen emperor at Agrippina, a city of Gaul. He exercised the government in such a manner, that he is deservedly preferred to all the other emperors. He was a man of extraordinary skill in managing affairs of state, and of remarkable courage. The limits of the Roman empire, which, since the reign of Augustus, had been rather defended than honourably enlarged, he extended far and wide. He rebuilt some cities in Germany; he subdued Dacia by the overthrow of Decebalus, and formed a province beyond the Danube, in that territory which the Thaiphali, Victoali, and Theruingi now occupy. This province was a thousand miles in circumference.

He recovered Armenia, which the Parthians had seized, putting to death Parthamasires who held the government of it. He gave a king to the Albani. He received into alliance the king of the Iberians, Sarmatians, Bosporani, Arabians, Osdroeni, and Colchians. He obtained the mastery over the Cordueni and Marcomedi, as well as over Anthemusia, an extensive region of Persia. He conquered and kept possession of Seleucia, Ctesiphon, Babylon, and the country of the Messenii. He advanced as far as the boundaries of India, and the Red Sea, where he formed three provinces, Armenia, Assyria, and Mesopotamia, including the tribes which border on Madena. He afterwards, too, reduced Arabia into the form of a province. He also fitted out a fleet for the Red Sea, that he might use it to lay waste the coasts of India.

Yet he went beyond his glory in war, in ability and judgment as a ruler, conducting himself as an equal towards all, going often to his friends as a visitor, either when they were ill, or when they were celebrating feast days, and entertaining them in his turn at banquets where there was no distinction of rank, and sitting frequently with them in their chariots; doing nothing unjust towards any of the senators, nor being guilty of any dishonesty to fill his treasury; exercising liberality to all, enriching with offices of trust, publicly and privately, every body whom he had known even with the least familiarity; building towns throughout the world, granting many immunities to states, and doing every thing with gentleness and kindness; so that during his whole reign, there was but one senator condemned, and he was sentenced by the senate without Trajan's knowledge. Hence, being regarded throughout the world as next to a god, he deservedly obtained the highest veneration both living and dead. . . .

After having gained the greatest glory both in the field and at home, he was cut off, as he was returning from Persia, by a diarrhoea, at Seleucia in Isauria. He died in the sixty-third year, ninth month, and fourth day of his age, and in the nineteenth year, sixth month, and fifteenth day of his reign. He was enrolled among the gods, and was the only one of all the emperors that was buried within the city. His bones, contained in a golden urn, lie in the forum which he himself built, under a pillar whose height is a hundred and forty-four feet. So much respect has been paid to his memory, that, even to our own times, they shout in acclamations to the emperors, "More fortunate than Augustus, better than Trajan!"

322. Numerian30 viewsMarcus Aurelius Numerius Numerianus was the younger son of the later emperor Carus, born in about AD 253.
Numerian and his elder brother Carinus were raised to the rank of Caesar in AD 282, soon after their father became emperor.

In AD 282 Numerian accompanied his father to the Danube to defeat the Sarmatians and the Quadi.
Then in December AD 282 or January AD 283 Carus took Numerian with him on his expedition against the Persians to re-conquer Mesopotamia. Meanwhile Carinus stayed in Rome to rule the west.

When Carus died, Numerian succeeded him, thereby becoming joint emperor with his brother Carinus who had been granted the rank of Augustus shortly before Carus' death.

At first, immediately after his father's death, Numerian sought to continue the Persian campaign.
Apparently this was much favoured by Arrius Aper, the prefect of the praetorians and suspect in Carus' death. Conditions for war were favourable. The Persian side was still thought to be weak. But Numerian's initial efforts were not followed by success.
Numerian was to all effect appeared more of an intellectual than a man of war. He wrote poetry, some of which won him critical acclaim in his day.
This lack of ruthless military talent might well have been the reason why Carinus alone had been promoted Augustus, while Numerian remained Caeasar (junior emperor).
And so, after these initial setbacks, Numerian decided it unwise to continue the war.
He sought instead to return back to Rome and the army was not displeased to pull back into Syria were it spent the winter of AD 283.
Thereafter the army set out on its march back west through Asia Minor (Turkey).
Numerian fell ill near Nicomedia, suffering from an eye disease, which he might have caught while still on campaign in Mesopotamia with his father. The illness was explained with severe exhaustion (Today it is believed this was a serious eye infection. This left him partly blind and he had to be carried in a litter.

Somewhere at this time it is believed Arrius Aper, Numerian's own father in-law, had him killed. It;s widely believed that Aper hoped that it would be assumed that Numerian had simply succumbed to his illness and that he, the praetorian prefect, would succeed to the throne in his place.
But why he should have kept up the charade that Numerian was still alive remains a mystery. Perhaps he was waiting for he right moment.
For several days the death went unnoticed, the litter being carried along as usual. Soldiers inquired about their emperor's health and were reassured by Aper, that all was well and that Numerian simply was too ill to appear in public.

Eventually though the stench of the corpse became too much. Numerian's death was revealed and the soldiers realized that Rome had lost yet another emperor (AD 284).

Had it been Aper who hoped to fill the vacancy, then it was Diocletian (still known as Diocles at the time), commander of the imperial bodyguard, who emerged the victor. It was Diocletian who was made emperor by the troops after Numerian's death. It was he who sentenced Aper to death and even executed the sentence himself. Therefore it was he who, benefited most from the deaths of Carus and Numerian. And in his role as body guard he held a key position, enabling him to prevent or enable any action against the emperor. Hence it is unlikely that Diocletian did not have anything to do with the murder of Numerian.

(Netherlands, 2001)

In the absence of any specific reverse legend, it is difficult to know for sure which temple is depicted on this coin. According to Clive Foss (1990) it is the temple of Venus Genetrix of the Forum of Julius Caesar. Since the statue in the centre of the building appears to be that of Jupiter, most assume that it is the temple of Jupiter Victor. In that case, this issue could celebrate the restoration of that temple by Trajan which event was celebrated in conjunction with the tenth anniversary of his reign. Later this temple was rededicated to Divus Traianus, and later still by Elegabalus to Sol-Elagabal. Strack however carefully studied all evidence and examined the best preserved specimens of this and related issues and concludes that the best guess is that the central figure represents the Genius Augusti and that the temple is dedicated to Divus Nerva.

ex G. Henzen (Netherlands, 2000)

The reverse of this sestertius commemorates the completion in AD 103 of a major restoration of the Circus Maximus, following a great fire that had severely damaged the famous arena in the time of the Flavian emperors. The origin of the Circus Maximus, situated in the Murcia valley between the Palatine and Aventine hills, is quite obscure. An enclosure for chariot racing, it had parallel sides and one semicircular end, all fitted with seats for spectators, and an axial rib (spina) marked at each end by turning-posts (metae) dividing the arena into two runs. At the open end were the curved stables (carceres) sufficient to accommodate twelve teams of horses. Traditionally founded by King Tarquinius Priscus, it does not seem to have become a permanent structure until 329 BC (Livy viii. 20.1). In later times, it was much embellished, notably by Augustus who erected on the spina the great Egyptian obelisk of Rameses II from Heliopolis (it now stands in the Piazza del Populo). The vast arena was frequently damaged by the fires that afflicted the imperial capital; on several occasions, there was loss of life when structural failure occurred under the weight of the huge crowds that attended the events. Trajan was himself an ardent fan of the Circus so it is scarcely surprising that he took on the task of restoring the arena. The present specimen is a good example of the rare issue that commemorated the completion of this undertaking. More than a century later (AD 213), the Emperor Caracalla issued a similar type to record his own restoration work on the Circus Maximus. The last recorded games in this celebrated arena took place under the Ostrogothic king Totila in AD 550.

PRINCIPIA IUVENTUTIS, the Leaderships of the Youth. In the reign of Augustus, the emperor's grandsons were each invested with the courtesy title of 'PRINCEPS IUVENTUTIS', and in due course the title came to be given regularly to the heir to the imperial throne.

The aqueduct was dedicated in 109 and commemorated on coins beginning the following year. The design depicts the waterworks at the end of the aqueduct with the personification of the river reclining below. -There are reports that the actual rev scene has recently been rediscovered.

Ok, what do we have here?
- ARAB ATQ: The engraver has a d/t-problem.
- Legends do not match.
- The coin is undated.
- He forgot AVG.
- NERVAE requires TRAIANO.
- If I am correct in reading "GOER", is that the actual pronunciation in ancient times? Even today in the English "Germany" it has an oe/ö-sound, whereas in German we pronounce it with an "e" like in "elephant".

Herennius Etruscus (227-251 AD) was the elder son of Trajan Decius. He became Caesar in 250 and Augustus in 251, the year he and his father were killed by the Goths at the Battle of Abritus; the first time a Roman Emperor was killed in battle against barbarians. The catastrophic battle against the Gothic king Cniva was fought near Abritus in the Roman province of Moesia Inferior (modern Razgrad, Bulgaria).

Minted in: Dordrecht

The Siege of Breda in 1590 was an extremely short battle during the Eighty Years' War during which a Dutch army led by Maurice of Nassau captured the heavily protected city of Breda by a clever tactic reminiscent of the Trojan horse. The Dutch commander was informed that a ship carrying peat to the city was never checked by the Spanish soldiers. Together with the ship's captain he thought of a plan which involved 70 Dutch soldiers hiding in the peat. The plan worked and the city was taken with an absolute minimum of casualties on the Dutch side.

Reino Shahi de Kabul y Gandhara50 viewsEste tipo de monedas es muy común, las acuñaciones del "vaca-caballero" pervivieron durante muchas décadas (alrededor de 4 siglos) en la zona del actual Afganistán, Pakistán y norte de la India. Se conocen también con el nombre de jittal o jital, y se cree que Samanta Deva fue un título, más que el nombre de un gobernante en concreto.
El reino Shahi fue establecido a principios del siglo IX en Kabul por Lagaturman, un ministro brahman de origen turco. La expansión islámica de finales del siglo IX obligó a los shahi a buscar refugio al sur, estableciendo su nueva capital en Ohind, en donde el reino pervivió, aunque con enfrentamientos con el reino vecino de Cachemira, hasta la derrota definitiva a principios del siglo XI, ante los ghaznávidas de Mahmud de Ghazni.

AR Dracma ó Jital 18 mm 3.2 gr.

Anv: Jinete estilizado, portando lanza y montando hacia derecha. Leyenda "bhi"? en nagari.
Rev: leyenda "Sri Samanta Deva" en nagari. Toro jorobado (Zebú) estilizado con el nombre Brahmi recostado hacia izquierda.

Acuñada: 850 - 970 D.C.
Ceca: Acuñada por pueblos hindu-budistas (turcos o hunos heptalitas), en el antiguo reino Shahi de los valles de Kabul y Gandhara.

RIC erroneously mentions only a draped portrait, but all examples I have seen show drapery on the left shoulder only.

The equestrian statue depicted here is probably the famous statue on Trajan's forum, today lost. Ammianus Marcellinus reports the following story (X, 15-16):
"But when he (i.e. Constantius II) came to the forum of Trajan, the most exquisite structure, in my opinion, under the canopy of heaven, and admired even by the deities themselves, he stood transfixed with wonder, casting his mind over the gigantic proportions of the place, beyond the power of mortal to describe, and beyond the reasonable desire of mortals to rival. Therefore giving up all hopes of attempting anything of this kind, he contented himself with saying that he should wish to imitate, and could imitate the horse of Trajan, which stands by itself in the middle of the hall, bearing the emperor himself on his back.
And the royal prince Hormisda, whose departure from Persia we have already mentioned, standing by answered, with the refinement of his nature, "But first, O emperor, command such a stable to be built for him, if you can, that the horse which you purpose to make may have as fair a domain as this which we see."

The Dacian falx was a heavy sword, feared by Roman legionaries because it could easily rip a man's arm off. However, the falx had to be used with both hands, which is why Dacians fought without a shield.

Commentary: This son of Trajan Decius was made Caesar in either 250 or 251, but because of his young age (early teens?) was left at Rome with his mother while his father and bother, Herrenius Etruscus, went to war with the Goths where both met an untimely end. Trebonianus Gallus, as Emperor next, made the highly unusual decision to adopt Hostilian and raise him to the rank of co-Augustus. Hostilian's reign was short lived as he fell victim to the plague within a few months.

Princeps Juventutis was a name of dignity even in the most flourishing days of the republic. It was an honorary appellation given to him who took the lead of the greater and lesser boys appointed to perform a part in the game of Troy (ad ludum Troja). The prince of the youth was, in the earlier times, the chief of the Equestrian Order. Under the empire, and from the very commencement of that monarchical form of government, this title, although simply honorary, appears to have been given, as an apanage, to such young princes of the imperial family as were destined to reign, and was sometimes conferred on them at a very early age.

After the sudden death of Carus in August AD 283, the command of the Persian expedition passed on to his 30 year old son, Numerian. Numerian, although a very responsible and capable man, was merely given the title of Caesar by his father, while his older brother, Carinus, governed the western provinces as joint Augustus. This was most likely due to the fact that Numerian was known for his poetry, not his ability to rule. While off on his Mesopotamian campaign, Numerian developed a serious eye infection which left him partially blind. After a successful campaign and the capture of Ctesiphon, Numerian ordered the withdrawal of Roman troops. On the return trip as they crossed Asia Minor, Numerian was allegedly murdered by his father-in-law, praetorian commander Lucius Flavius Aper. The murder remained undetected until the stench of the emperor’s rotting corpse revealed the heinous deed. Upon their arrival at Nicomedia in November AD 284, Aper was “tried” and convicted of the murder without being given much of a chance to prove his case. Aper was killed by Diocles, commander of the bodyguard, who ran him through with his sword. With Numerian dead and Aper now out of the way, the troops proclaimed Diocles, who then became known as Diocletian, as the new emperor. This would be the beginning of a brand new era in Roman history.

“Numerian, the son of Carus, was of excellent character and truly worthy to rule; he was notable, moreover, for his eloquence, so much so, in fact, that even as a boy he declaimed in public, and his writings came to be famous, though more suitable for declamation than in keeping with Cicero's style. In verse, furthermore, he is said to have had such skill that he surpassed all the poets of his time… The speech, moreover, which he sent to the senate is said to have been so eloquent that a statue was voted him not as a Caesar but as a rhetorician, to be set up in the Ulpian Library with the following inscription: ‘To Numerian Caesar, the most powerful orator of his time.’" –Historia Augusta The Lives of Carus, Carinus, and Numerian XI

RIC VI : 734

The boots shown worn by Constantine on this coin are not the usual army boots but a special type of boot called a mulleus (pl. mullei), it was a kind of fur boot where a catlike animal's scalp was attached to the upper front of the boot leg and the animal's paws hung down from both sides. These type of mullei were shown worn by deities like Mars, Virtus, Honos, Roma, and sometimes emperors. Iconographically they were connected to gods and heroes.
Goette, in his " Ikonographische Studien zu Römischem Schuhwerk", has shown that the mulleus appears from the time of Augustus to the period of the Tetrarchy on Roman artwork.
It is notable that these types of mullei are often depicted being worn by cuirassed statues in a war-like connection. It is therefore possible, even probable, that the boots were made from lion's skin, which would match the symbol of royal power and strength with the godlike power of their wearer. - credit Jochen

This coin was struck in A.D.307 to commemorate Constantine's proclamation as Caesar.

Lofty octastyle temple containing female diety standing right on pedestal holding long scepter & cornucopiae; triangular entablature above with male figure seated facing, sacrificing over altar, flanked by smaller kneeling figures; more statues on roof

This coin is now thought to represent the Temple of Divus Plotina & Trajan in the Forum of Trajan, which is thought to have been begun by Trajan and completed by Hadrian. This temple was situated directly behind the column of Trajan, at one end of his forum.

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 restored by Trajan a few years earlier. Others argue that it is the temple of Jupiter (later rededicated to Divus Traianus) also restored by Trajan. According to others still, it is the temple of Venus Genetrix as the pose of central figure resembles 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).
