Denaro di Marcantonio - Legio V
« on: March 26, 2004, 04:39:37 pm »
Salve,

sto catalogando questo denaro legionario di Marcantonio (legio V, Crawford 544/18) e mi chiedevo se qualcuno poteva spigarmi il significato della legenda ANT AVG III VIR RPC, in particolare per ciò che riguarda la parte finale RPC. Ha forse a che vedere con le coorti pretoriane?

Grazie
Luigi

       ANT AVG = Antonius Augur.
       IIIVIR RPC = Triumvir Reipublicae Constituendae, "Triumvir for the regulation of the Republic", the title voted to Mark Antony, Octavian and Lepidus in Nov. 43 BC, when they established the "second triumvirate".

La cosa più positiva di questa moneta, sebbene in conservazione scarsa, è che per lo meno si legge la LEGIO, si trovano questi deneratti a chili ma tutti con la leio illegibile, sarebbe forse interessante fare una raccolta solo di questa variante con tutte le LEGIO ... a trovarle :-)
