When he became emperor following the death of Trajan in 117 AD, questions immediately arose regarding the validity of Hadrian's succesion. Although it is clear from Hadrian's early career and marriage to Sabina (Trajan's grand-niece) that the emperor brought his young kinsman within the imperial court, Trajan, unlike Nerva before, made no move to adopt Hadrian formally, instead possibly preferring others. This fact prompted Hadrian, in the early days of his reign to emphasize his legitimacy to the succession. Hadrian declared Trajan divus and ordered his ashes installed in the Column of his newly complete Forum. Trajan's name and titles were incorporated into the new imperial nomenclature, a privilege reserved solely for legitimate heirs. At the same time, coins were struck to associate the new reign with the previous administration and declare a peaceful transferral of power. The legend DAC PARTHICO (in the dedicatory dative), clearly refers to Trajan, while the Concordia reverse type (to date, uncommon with the addition of Spes), emphasized by the inclusion of CONCORDIA in the exergue, demonstrated Hadrian's potential willingness for the time to continue Trajan's policies, thereby insuring continued political harmony, something which disintegrated as Hadrian's reign progressed.

010. Vespasian16 viewsSpes

In Roman mythology, Spes was the goddess of hope. She was traditionally defined as "the last goddess" (Spes, ultima dea), meaning that hope is the last resource available to men.
There was a temple to her in the Forum Holitorium. In art, Spes was depicted hitching her skirt while holding a cornucopia and flowers. Spes personified hope for good harvests, and for children, and was invoked at births, marriages, and other important times.

Her Greek equivalent was Elpis.

This coin has ben donated to Soderakra local historical society (Sweden) as there some years ago was found a denarius of this type in an Iron Age grave at this location. This enables the society to display a coin of the very same type even though the actual grave find is locked up in a central collection.

Rev: PRINCEPS IVVENTVT; Spes, draped, advancing l., holding up flower in r. hand and with l. holding up her skirt.

Ex Harlan J Berk 155, 31 July 2007, lot 247.

During Vespasian's reign, Domitian was given the honorary title PRINCEPS IVVENTVT or 'Prince of Youth', celebrated here on this denarius from 74 AD. The title is one that was often given to young princes who were marked out as chosen heirs.

Spes, the personification of hope, is seen here on the reverse advacing left, holding a budding flower. The flower is a symbol of future well being.

Domitian's coinage during Vespasian's rule was unique. While Titus followed closely the types of his father, Domitian struck out on his own. One wonders how much of an input the young prince had on his own series.

A very likeable coin with a good portrait and excellent centring.

03c Domitian as Caesar RIC 93260 views As, 10.65g
Rome mint, 76 AD (Vespasian)
Obv: CAESAR AVG F DOMITIANVS COS IIII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: S C in field; Spes stg. l., with flower
RIC 932 (C). BMC -. BNC -.
Acquired from Ken Dorney, January 2019.

Spes, the goddess of hope, is seen here as an 'heir apparent' type. She is represented on Roman coins as a young girl, reminiscent of earlier Greek statures depicting Elpis. H. Mattingly in BMCRE II says 'the flower held by Spes is an opening bud, she is raising her skirt in order to hasten forward'. Spes occurs quite commonly throughout the Flavian coinage and is frequently paired up with the young Domitian Caesar, likely expressing a hope or expectation for future dynastic success. It is very Ironic that Spes is often associated with Domitian Caesar on the coinage, considering he would later be the family member most responsible for the dynasty's downfall in 96. Surprisingly, this common Spes type is not in the BM.

The obverse features a quintessential Flavian portrait - unflattering hook nose with full and heavy facial features. Pleasant dark green patina.

A mix up with the reverse legend and reverse type. The reverse legend should match with the Fides type instead of Spes. Bartosz Awianowicz has the opposite error with a BONA SPES reverse legend and a Fides reverse type.

A mix up with the reverse legend and reverse type. The reverse legend should match with the Fides type instead of Spes. Bartosz Awianowicz has the opposite error with a BONA SPES reverse legend and a Fides reverse type.

103b. Aelius25 viewsAelius was adopted by an aging and ailing Hadrian in 136 and named successor to the throne, although he had no military experience; he had served as a senator. He had powerful political connections, but was in poor health. His tastes were luxurious and extravagant and his life said to have been frivolous. Hadrian's choice seems to have been an error in judgement. Some scholars have suggested that Aelius may have been Hadrian's bastard son, but there is no reason to believe this. Aelius himself was never to become emperor, dying shortly before Hadrian.

Commodus is known to have been at Carnuntum, Marcus Aureliuss headquarters during the Marcomannic Wars, in 172. It was presumably there that, on 15 October 172, he was given the victory title Germanicus in the presence of the army. The title suggests that Commodus was present at his fathers victory over the Marcomanni. Even the title of Sarmaticus he was given in 175.
During the preparations for the campaign against Cassius in Syria, the prince assumed his toga virilis on the Danubian front on July 7, 175, thus formally entering adulthood.

In 258 Saloninus was appointed Caesar by his father (just like his older brother Valerian II, who had then just died, two years earlier was) and sent to Gaul, to make sure his father's authority was respected there. Saloninus lived in Cologne during that time of his life.

In 260 (probably in july) Saloninus and his protector, the praetorian prefect Silvanus, had an argument with the usurper Postumus about the distribution of some booty. Both fled to Cologne with some loyal troops and were besieged by Postumus. The troops elevated Saloninus to the rank of Augustus but the city was soon captured by Postumus, and both Saloninus and Silvanus were murdered. Gallienus, being on the other side of the empire could do nothing to stop him. Saloninus was probably emperor for about one month only.

Very rare

This issue commemorates Gaius Caligula's dedication of the Temple of the Divus Augustus and the young emperor's sense of pietas. The PIETAS beneath the figure of the emperor drives home the point that he is fulfilling his duty by dedicating the temple to his great-grandfather. Construction of the Temple of the Divus Augustus began under Tiberius and, perhaps, under the direction of Livia herself, in the general area behind the Basilica Julia (though the actual site remains unknown), and was subsequently dedicated by Caligula.

This type of Spes, which became afterwards so common on coins of the Imperial mint, appears for the first time on a large brass of Claudius. It would seem that Claudius worshipped Hope as a favourite divinity, and on his natal day made vows to her honour.

501a. Fausta47 viewsFausta Flavia Maxima was the daughter of the Roman Emperor Maximianus. To seal the alliance between them for control of the Tetrarchy, Maximianus married her to Constantine I in 307.

It is suspected that Fausta was fiercely anti-Christian and plotting the Roman empire's return to paganism behind her husband's back. Although the real reasons are not clear, Constantine eventually put her to death along with Crispus, his eldest son by a previous marriage to Minervina, in 326. Eusebius of Caesarea suspected step-mother and step-son to be lovers to each other.

Her sons became Roman Emperors: Constantine II reigned 337 - 340, Constantius II reigned 337 - 361, and Constans reigned 337 - 350. Variety of sources, of more or less reliability, attest that she bore daughters Constantina, Helena and Fausta. Of these, Constantina married her cousins, firstly Hannibalianus and secondly Gallus Caesar, and Helena married Emperor Julian. Apparently a genealogical claim that her daughter Fausta became mother of Emperor Valentinian I is without foundation (Valentinian I and children of Constantine I's second marriage were born in years close to each other, i.e they were of the same generation).

515b. Magnus Maximus35 viewsA Spaniard, Maximus was proclaimed emperor by his troops in 383, while serving with the army in Britain. Later legend made him King of the Britons; he handed the throne over to Caradocus when he went to Gaul to pursue his imperial ambitions.

Following his destruction of Gaul, Maximus went out to meet his main opponent, Gratian, who he defeated near Paris. Gratian, after fleeing, was killed at Lyon on August 25, 383. Soon after, Maximus managed to force Valentinian II out of Rome after which he fled to Theodosius I, the Eastern Roman Emperor. Maximus made his capital at Augusta Treverorum (Treves, Trier) in Gaul. He became a popular emperor, although also a stern persecutor of heretics.

Theodosius I and Valentinian II campaigned against Magnus Maximus in July-August 388. Maximus was defeated in the Battle of the Save, near Emona, and retreated to Aquileia. Andragathius, magister equitum of Maximus and killer of Gratian, was defeated near Siscia, his brother Marcellinus again at Poetovio. Maximus surrendered in Aquileia and although pleaded for mercy was executed. However, his wife and two daughters were spared. Maximus' son, Flavius Victor, was defeated and executed by Valentinian's magister peditum Arbogast in the fall of the same year.

What happened to his family is not related, although it is clear that they survived and that his descendants continued to occupy influential posts. We encounter a possible daughter of Magnus Maximus, Sevira, on the Pillar of Eliseg, an early medieval inscribed stone in Wales which claims her marriage to Vortigern, king of the Britons. Another daughter was possibly married to Ennodius, proconsul Africae (395). Their grandson was Petronius Maximus, who was another ill-fated emperor, ruling in Rome for but 77 days before he was stoned to death while fleeing from the Vandals on May 24, 455. Other descendants included Anicius Olybrius, emperor in 472, but also several consuls and bishops such as St. Magnus Felix Ennodius (Bishop of Pavia c. 514-21).

Reference: Sear RCV (2005) 8967; RIC IV 70. The obverse legend gives Philip the titles of 'Pius Felix', not used for him at Rome, and 'P. M.' which here must represent not 'Pontifex Maximus', but 'Persicus Maximus', 'greatest of Persian conquerors' though actually, he negotiated a peace with the Persians. Ex Moremoth1 commentsPodiceps

Obv.: IMP T AELIVS CAESAR ANTONINVS, bare head of Antoninus facing right.
Rev.: TRIB POT COS (around) CONCORD (in ex.) S C (in field), Concordia seated left and holding a patera; cornucopiae under her seat.
RIC (Hadrian) 1081 var. (draped bust); Cohen 131 (4 fr.); Strack (Hadrian) 898 (2 collections); BMC (Hadrian) p.550 *; Banti 53 (one single specimen - coll. Paris - without plate); RCV 4156

Numismatic note: Even though RIC rates this type as scarce only, in reality it is extremely rare: BMC only refers to C.131 (Paris), there is no specimen in B.M.); Strack lists this type in only 2 of the 30 collections, questioning one: Berlin (?; bare head); the other specimen is in Paris (draped bust, bare head; illustrated in Vol.II, plate XVII-898: same rev. die). This means that, apart from Strack's questionable Berlin specimen, all references refer to a single specimen in the Paris Cabinet des Mdailles. See also Strack Vol.III, p. 316, note 6a, referring to Cohen 637 (RIC Hadr. 1078), which is probably a duplicate of Coh. 131, but without the CONCORD legend visible in exergue (exactly as on this specimen). A special variety exists with Spes figurine on back of throne, noted by Strack in his description: "Concordia s.n.l. (Spes.Fllh.) m. Schale" but not illustrated. However such a specimen now in coll. F. Diederik.

Historical note: After Aelius, the intended successor of Hadrian, suddenly died on New Year's day of AD 138, Hadrian adopted T. Aurelius Antoninus to fill the place. This coin belongs to one of the issues struck between 25 February and the death of Hadrian on 10 July 138 AD which announces the new Caesar.

Note: This coin was not an official issue of the Roman mint it was produced my a provincial mint most likely in Britain or Spain. During the reign of Claudius the Roman mint mainly focused on producing silver and gold coins and the lesser copper and bronze pieces were produced early on. The neglect of small denomination coinage created a serious shortage in the provinces until the locals began producing their own. Some of these local coins were legitimized and circulated freely.

Crawford 412/1, Roman Republic, L. Roscius Fabatus, Denarius serratus137 viewsRoman Republic (Rome mint 64 BC.), L. Roscius Fabatus.
AR Denarius (3.82 g, 18-19 mm).
Obv.: L.ROSCI , below head of Juno Sospita to right, wearing goat skin headdress; behind symbol: fountain basin.
Rev.: FABATI (in ex.), maiden standing right, feeding snake coiled erect before her; to left, well-head.
Crawford 412/1 (Symbol pair 102) ; Sydenham 915 ; Babelon Roscia 3 .

Juno Sospita was one of the names of the goddess Juno, emphasizing her role as protector of women, marriage, and childbirth ('Sospita' = 'she who saves'). The cult of Juno Sospita (or 'Sispes') was important in Lanuvium. She wore a goat-skin headdress and carried a spear and a shield.
At Lanuvium, Juno Sospita had a temple which was guarded by a serpent. Every year a maiden would offer cakes to the serpent. If it accepted, this was a sign that the girl was a virgin. Its refusal was an evil omen and a year of sterility was to be feared.
L.Roscius Fabatus was born at Lanuvium and was a "new man" (the first to ennoble his family by entering the Senate). In 55, he held the tribuneship. Roscius was co-author of a measure to further Caesar's plans for agrarian and municipal reform. He was a Caesarian legate in Gaul after 54, where he commanded the 13th legion. In 49, he held the praetorship and was involved as a messenger in the events of that year, which led to the fatal rupture between Caesar and Pompey. In one of his letters, Cicero reported Roscius was killed at the Forum Gallorum in 43 during the war of Mutina.
The coins of this moneyer are the last to exhibit edge serrations as a regular practice. He also utilized a large number of paired die control symbols, one for each side, which represented almost 250 everyday objects. In this, he appears to have taken an earlier moneyer, L.Papius, c. 78, as a model. Curiously, the moneyer's name on the coin is in the genitive, " . . . of Roscius Fabatus", perhaps implying "coinage of Roscius Fabatus."

"Spes was the Roman personification of Hope. In art Spes is normally depicted carrying flowers or a cornucopia, but on coins she is almost invariably depicted holding a flower in her extended right hand, while the left is raising a fold of her dress. She was also named "ultima dea" - for Hope is the last resort of men. On this coin, the Caesar, Diadumenian, the designated successor of the emperor, is identified as the hope for the future of the Roman people." - Forum

Domitian Caesar / Titus Judaea Capta Sestertius Mule86 viewsDomitian Caesar / Titus Judaea Capta Sestertius Mule, 25.38 g. Rome mint, struck 80/81

O: [CAES DIVI] AVG VESP F DOMITIAN[VS COS VII] - RIC II 288-306 (Titus)
R: IVD CAP across fields; SC in field below; mourning Jewess to left of palm on pile of arms; Jew on right with hands bound, arms on ground. - Titus RIC 153 (Perhaps a die match); Hendin 1593b; Upcoming addenda Titus 287A.

The only known sestertius mule under Titus.

From the patina it was likely found in eastern Europe, perhaps Bulgaria, a rich find spot for a lot of the judaea sestertii.

What evidence points to RIC II 288 / 306?

As noted by Curtis Clay, "Obverse legends beginning CAESAR are rare, and so far only known with portrait laur. left, according to RIC 275-7. Legends beginning CAES are very much more common.

With the N of DOMITIAN placed before Domitian's mouth, too much space seems to remain for just COS VII. We almost need that added VS to fill out the space.

Flavian mules in gold or silver occur with some regularity, though they are all rare individually.

It's not surprising, however, that very few sestertius mules occurred.

1. Vespasian struck c. 90% of the sestertii of his reign in the single year 71. Mules were impossible, because he hadn't yet begun striking sestertii for Titus and Domitian!

2. Later, when sestertii were being struck for Titus and Domitian too, the rev. types were not usually personalized, for example by carrying on the imperial titulature of each emperor, but were general and could be shared among the emperors, for example S C Spes advancing, or PAX AVGVSTI S C. Virtually all of the rev. types were appropriate for all three emperors, so there could be no mules!

Under Titus the possibilities for mules increased, since more types were introduced that were apparently meant for just one of the two imperial brothers, for example:

Titus: the Judaea Capta types, ANNONA AVG without S C, FELICIT PVBLIC, PIETAS AVGVST (Titus and Dom. shaking hands), PROVIDENT AVGVST (Vesp. hands globe to Titus), S C (Roma hands Palladium to Titus on horseback)

Domitian: S C (Minerva fighting right)."

Curtis Clay says,


"The earliest issue of Hadrian's reign, notable for giving him five honorary titles of Trajan, namely Optimus, Germanicus, Dacicus, Parthicus, and Pater Patriae, all of which however disappeared from his second issue of coins.

Obviously the Senate, upon hearing of Trajan's death in Cilicia and Hadrian's accession at Antioch, voted Hadrian these titles, and the mint immediately put them on the coins, but Hadrian modestly refused the titles, causing them to disappear from the coinage. It would have taken a month or so for news of the Senatorial awards to reach Hadrian in Antioch, and then for news of Hadrian's rejection of the titles to get back to Rome."

CONCORDIA, personification of concord and harmony, worshipped as a goddess (first temple at Rome 367 BC). The symbolism of her attributes (cornucopiae, patera, sceptre, olive branch, flower, ears of corn, sometimes a statuette of Spes) suggests the benefits Concordia brings, and indicates a relationship between Concordia, Pax and Fides.

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

Ob: FLAV MAX - FAVSTA AVG - Draped bust right, hair tied in bun on back of head
Rv: PROIDEN-TIAE AVGG - 6 Layer, two turrent camp gate (!) with star above, no doors
Exergue: PTR? (epsilon or dot in crescent, can't tell)
Mint: Trier (ca. 326 AD)
References: * Unique Mule w/ Obv. of Fausta RIC VII Trier 466 and rev. of Constantine I RIC VII Trier 461

Though in exceedingly poor shape, this coin was purchased from a junk bin because it didn't look plausible. It had been overcleaned and was aparently discarded by its previous owner as a badly cleaned coin. At first I thought someone had attempted to "convert" by crude tooling a standard campgate into a Fausta obverse, but the obverse legend (FLAV MAX - FAVSTA AVG) is clearly not tooled and the portrait style with the small bun at the back of the neck is a valid style of portraiture for Fausta.

Ugly as it is, it is a unique mint error. Coins of Fausta were indeed being struck alongside coins of the emperors and Caesars in this Campgate issue.

Issues with this PTR crescent reverse include:

Constantine I RIC VII Trier 461 (PROIDEN-TIAE AVGG)
Crispus RIC VII Trier 462 (PROIDEN-TIAE CAESS)
Constantine II RIC VII Trier 463 (PROIDEN-TIAE CAESS)

With a reverse legend of PROIDEN-TIAE AVGG, this coin is a combination of an R4 reverse (RIC 461) and an obverse intended for an R5 reverse - Fausta SPES REIPVBLICAE RIC 466 R5

Juno Sospita (=Savior) was goddes of fertility and protector of women. She was main deity in Lanuvium.
Bull - Taurus - is pun for moneyer's name Thorius.
Moneyer served as legate under Q. Caecilius Metellus in Spain 79 BC. Cicero wrote that he had lived as there was no pleasure in life.

This moneyer was a native of Lanuvium and Cicero describes him as a man who lived in such a manner that there was not a single pleasure, however refined or rare, that he did not enjoy. Juno was worshipped at this city as the protectress of women, especially in pregnancy. The rushing bull is a type parlant of the moneyer's name.

The extra obverse titles give away the fact that this was struck at the Unknown Eastern Mint, another obverse type has the 'PM', at the end of the obv titles on this example, underneath the bust of the Emperor on the Obverse.
One of three known reverse types struck at this Unknown Mint of the East of the Emperor Philip I. The other two are the ' PAX FUNDATA CUM PERSIS' - and 'VIRTUS EXERCITUS' reverses.
------------
Now, I know some other people on here have some other, and much nicer examples from this mint, and I would encourage them to post them in this 'Roman Mint Styles' Gallery.

I am interested in the minor variations that occur in the Minerva series for Domitian. I have a lot of fun tracking down the attributions by deciphering the legends on these coins. Every once in a while I find a rarity others have overlooked because of the seemingly monolithic nature of the Minerva denarii. So, when I find a coin like this one that does not feature Minerva, I am motivated to grab it. The figure on the reverse of this coin is SPES or "Hope" with a flower in her hand. The legend announces Domitian as the Prince of Youth.

I also find that I like the portraits on these coins for Domitian as Caesar. They are of a completely different character than the later portraits. Not that the later portraits are not good, in fact some are spectacular. Please see other posts on this blog for some examples.

RIC lists this as a common coin but I do not think they appear very often at all. While I really like the Minerva series I will always take the opportunity to add a non Minerva denarius to my collection.
