IOVI CONSERVATORI

Latin: to Jupiter the Protector.


DICTIONARY OF ROMAN COINS


Please add updates or make corrections to the NumisWiki text version as appropriate.
IOVI CONSERVATORI.--Jupiter sitting or standing, holds a Victory in his right and the hasta (long scepter) in his left. This appears on a Sestertius of Domitian, and on a silver coin of Septimius Severus, etc.--And (as Vaillant remarks) "it is not to be wonder at, if that Emperor, after so many wars conducted on his part with surpassing valor and military skill, should have performed the sacrifice Jovi Conservatori, as ascribing his own preservation and success to the help and assistance of the Optimus Maximus of the Roman Pantheon; and it is in memory of so many victories that Jupiter himself bears the image of Victory."--(p. 219.)
