View Categories Home > Catalog > |Roman Coins| > |The Adoptive Emperors| > |Trajan| > RS88850Trajan, 25 January 98 - 8 or 9 August 117 A.D. Virtus to the ancient Romans included valor, manliness, excellence, courage, character, and worth, perceived as masculine strengths (from Latin vir, "man"). Curiously, despite the masculine characteristics of virtus, the personification or deity Virtus was usually depicted as a female warrior, in armor holding a spear, parazonium, victory or a shield. Virtus and Mars can usually be distinguished since Mars is usually shown nude and Virtus is always shown clothed.
