Trajan.jpg
65 viewsTrajan AR Denarius. Rome, AD 113-114. IMP TRAIANO OPTIMO AVG GER DAC P M TR P, laureate and draped bust right / COS VI P P SPQR, Trajan's column surmounted by statue of the emperor; at base, two eagles. RIC 307; BMCRE 522; RSC 115. 3.53g, 20mm, 6h.
Of all of the truly monumental buildings and commemorative structures which the emperor Trajan built, only one, the Columna Traiani, has survived in a reasonable state of completeness. Indeed, it appears almost identical in person as it does on coins, except that the statue of Trajan that originally surmounted it was replaced in 1588 with a statue of St. Paul. When completed, the column occupied a prominent place between two libraries, the Basilica Ulpia and the Temple of Trajan and Plotina. The column was massive: it was over 12 feet in diameter at its base, and rose to a height of nearly 130 feet. Its core was comprised of 34 blocks of Carrara white marble that were made hollow so as to accommodate a circular staircase of 185 steps. The most remarkable feature of the column, however, was its ornamentation, for the friezes on its exterior are some of the most inspiring works of art ever produced. Monumental in scope and execution, they record Trajan’s two Dacian campaigns, from 101-3 and 104-6. All told, there are more than 2,500 individually sculpted figures distributed among more than 150 scenes. The emperor himself is represented no less than fifty times – not a surprise considering his penchant for commemorative architecture and his pride in having added Dacia to the provinces of the empire. “ Source: NAC”

An important historical type commemorating the return of the legionary eagles lost by Crassus to the Parthians in the battle of Carrhae in 53 B.C. This example has wonderful toning, is perfectly centered, and retains complete legends, even the CL V on the shield is preserved better than the photograph shows.

02 Augustus RIC I 035960 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.

Claudius was put on the throne by the Praetorian Guard after the murder of Caligula, and was eventually murdered by Nero’s mother. This is a worn coin and common reverse during Claudius’ reign, but I wanted to obtain it as denarii of Claudius seem few and far between, second only to Gaius in the 12 Caesar series it seems.

With complete obverse legends and a high relief portrait, the obverse is worn and the coin is on an oblong flan. The reason I added this to my collection is the reverse. I initially thought the reverse was an obverse brockage, which had been restruck. A more experienced collector pointed out it was produced by clashed dies. An interesting oddity.

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.

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!"

'...as the usual appointed time when he must distribute subsistence money to the soldiers was now come, he [Titus] gave orders that the commanders should put the army into battle-array, in the face of the enemy, and then give every one of the soldiers their pay. So the soldiers, according to custom, opened the cases wherein their arms before lay covered, and marched with their breastplates on, as did the horsemen lead their horses in their fine trappings. Then did the places that were before the city shine very splendidly for a great way; nor was there any thing so grateful to Titus's own men, or so terrible to the enemy, as that sight.'

Note.
The great temple of Venus and Rome, was actually two temples that were built back-to-back. Dedigned by Hadrian, the temple of Venus faced the Flavian ampitheatre and that of Rome overlooked the Forum. Construction began in 121 AD, but was not completed until 141 AD under Antoninus Pius. The temple was destroyed by fire in 307 AD, and later rebuilt by Maxentius. Its remains can still be seen in Rome today.

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.

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.

This coin commemorates Roman victory at the Battle of Naissus (268 or 269 AD) and the defeat of a Gothic coalition by the Roman Empire under Emperor Claudius II near Naissus (Niš in present-day Serbia). The events around the invasion and the battle are an important part of the history of the Crisis of the Third Century.
The result was a great Roman victory which, combined with the effective pursuit of the invaders in the aftermath of the battle and the energetic efforts of the Emperor Aurelian, largely removed the threat from Germanic tribes in the Balkan frontier for the following decades.

Holed Coins, set41 viewsSet of six holed coins found together in Lower Austria. The first two are unidentifiable but are likely 1st century AD from their fabric. The third is Trajan dupondius SPQR OPTIMO PRICIPI reverse with Spes left. The fourth is a Hadrian as with unidentified reverse. The fifth appears to be Berytus BMC-122, Caracalla and Septimius Severus confronted busts with reverse of Astarte crowned by Nike who stands on column. The last is a Gordian III "biassaria" of Nicaea. All have three holes, mostly of square cross-section, carefully driven from obverse side to reverse. As you can note care has been taken to minimize damage to the faces. These coins are called "soldatenmunzen" (soldiers' coins) in German and are believed by some scholars to have been nailed to standards. However, there is also archeological evidence that they were nailed to shields and there are photos in Dr. Fischer's recent book on the Roman Army of two coins attached to an iron lame of lorica segmentata armour.otlichnik

According to Tacitus, Nero hatched a rather spectacular plan to deal with his meddlesome mother Agrippina. Knowing poisoning her would draw too much attention (and fearing she might survive owing to her mithridatism), Nero instead had a ship designed with a lead ceiling directly above his mother's bed. Once his mother was sleeping, the ceiling would fall down and crush her, while the crewmen would stage a shipwreck. However, when the plan came into action, the ceiling fell onto the bed's supports and Agrippina got away. Out of ideas, Nero then simply sent two soldiers to finish the job.

Another coin obtained, not for the coin itself, but rather for the countermark. The SPQR countermark used primarily on coins of Nero minted in Lugdunum, these are thought to relate to the uprising of Vindex. Because of its connection with the uprising resulting in the end of Nero, I though it might have a place in my collection.

RIC distinguishes between Felicitas (RIC 120) and Pax (RIC 126). According to Woytek 286, however, there is only the type with Felicitas, the caduceus sometimes being poorly drawn and then looking like a branch.

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.

From Helvetica's RIC Lists:

SALVS AVG, Salus standing right, feeding serpent in arms, SPQR in exe. RIC 242 variation.

Serdica mint.

Numismatische Zeitschrift No.16, pg 439.

Scarce

"Under Claudius Serdica struck in three officinae and marked their coins, as mentioned
above, with 1, 2, or 3 dots •, ••, ••• beneath the bust, although unmarked coins are
know to exist. However, whether a coin really is unmarked can only be checked on
really well preserved, unworn coins, as the dot was very small and could be worn away
fairly quickly. "

"We will also point out that the letters SPQR in the exergue are not really a mintmark
but the continuation i.e. the end of the reverse legend. "


"This mint only made one issue and that comprised entirely of devalued Antoniniani."

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.

Added late in Trajan's coinage, reflecting justified fears about his state of health. A scarce coin. Woytek 581 found only 24 specimens of this denarius, only nine in Reka Devnia hoard. Not often seen in trade.

Trajan was notorious for the length of his inscriptions, which are the longest of the imperial series. Here, the titles actually form a continuum on both sides of the coin. It all translates as "Imperator, Trajan the Augustus, victor over the Germans and Dacians, chief priest, with the power of a tribune, consul for the fifth time, father of his country, the Senate and People of Rome: best of emperors.".

Minted after the Antioch earthquake in 115 AD; Trajan was in the city at the time and was lucky to survive. Cassius Dio recounts - "Great numbers were suffocated in the ruins. Those who lay with part of their body buried under the stones or timbers suffered terribly, being able neither to live any longer nor to find an immediate death... Trajan made his way out through a window of the room in which he was staying. Some being, of greater than human stature, had come and led him forth, so that he escaped with only a few slight injuries; and as the shocks extended over several days, he lived out of doors in the hippodrome"

Trajan's Column commemorates Roman emperor Trajan's victory in the Dacian Wars. It was probably constructed under the supervision of the architect Apollodorus of Damascus at the order of the Roman Senate. Completed in 113 CE, the freestanding column is most famous for its spiral bas relief, that artistically describes the epic wars between the Romans and Dacians (101–102 and 105–106). Its design has inspired numerous victory columns, both ancient and modern. The structure is about 30 metres (98 ft) in height, 35 metres (125 ft) including its large pedestal. The shaft is made from a series of 20 colossal Carrara marble drums, each weighing about 32 tons. The capital block of Trajan's Column weighs 53.3 tons, which had to be lifted to a height of ca. 34 m.

The Via Traiana was constructed in 109 AD by Emperor Trajan at his own expense. The Via Appia, from which Via Traiana was constructed as an extension, lost its original importance as a military highroad that connected Venosa (Venusia) and Taranto (Tarentum). It reached Brundisium (Brindisi) by a shorter route (i.e. via Canusium, Butuntum and Barium rather than via Tarentum). This was commemorated by an arch at Beneventum.

Woytek makes no distinction between RIC 129 and 131; both are attributed as Victory walking left - "Victoria eilt n.l.". Woytek also lists a number of instances where the shields on the reverse have been incorrectly attributed as globe. While it might appear to be a globe on the reverse of some specimens, this is due to an incomplete strike.

Notice how "Optimo Principi" appears on the reverse. Not until later in his reign, would Trajan accept the title "Optimus" as part of his official title/name.

Ex: Jencek Historical Enterprise, Inc

The four FORTUNA REDUX coins were minted to wish Trajan good fortune on his expedition to Parthia. For that part the blessing worked well as Trajan's army swept into Mesopotamia and captured the Parthian capital. However, good fortune stopped there as Trajan was diverted by rebellions in Judaea, Cyprus, and Mesopatamia, and Egypt. Although he suppressed all of these, he fell ill and never made it back to Rome.
From Wikipedia:
In the Roman Empire, Fortuna Redux was a form of the goddess Fortuna who oversaw a return, as from a long or perilous journey. Her attributes were Fortuna's typical cornucopia, with her specific function represented by a rudder or steering oar sometimes in conjunction with a globe.(....) Fortuna Redux was widely disseminated in the Western Empire as the tutelary of the emperor's safe return to the city when he traveled abroad, an event that reaffirmed Rome as the center of the Imperial world.

Here we see how "Optimo" has finally become a part of the emperor's name - the transition from the title "Optimo Princeps" to the name "Optimo Augustus".

Curtis Clay:
"It's the difference between allowing others to call you "the best", and allowing that title to become part of your official name.
As Pliny records in his Panegyric, from early in his reign on the Senate wanted to call Trajan "best", but Trajan modestly refused to accept "best" as part of his name.
In the course of 103, after Trajan had celebrated his first Dacian triumph and renovated the Circus Maximus with the addition of seats for 5000 additional spectators, SPQR OPTIMO PRINCIPI became the standard rev. legend on Trajan's coins in all metals, meaning "The Senate and the Roman People (acclaim, or dedicate this coin to) the Best Emperor". Here Optimus is still an unofficial title: Trajan is allowing others to call him that, but is not permitting it to become part of his official name. Princeps is a general description of Trajan's function, "first man in the state" or simply "ruler, emperor", not part of his personal name.
In 114 Trajan conquered Armenia, the Senate once again voted him the name "Best", and this time he accepted it as part of his name, along with IMP, CAES, AVG, and his victory titles GERM and DAC. So from here on Optimus becomes part of Trajan's nomenclature on the obverse of his coins, and the rev. legend SPQR OPTIMO PRINCIPI disappears."
