Anazarbus, Cilicia, 114 - 115 A.D.
|Cilicia|, |Anazarbus,| |Cilicia,| |114| |-| |115| |A.D.|, The torch is a symbol that can be related to either Artemis or Demeter. Although the goddess on the reverse is usually identified in references as Artemis, we believe it is Demeter. In year 132, this type was struck at Anazarbus with larger denominations depicting Trajan on the obverse, some with reverses depicting Trajan's sister Marciana, and others with reverses depicting her daughter, Trajan's niece, Matidia. Circulating alongside the other coins, these coins advertised the importance of Marciana and Matidia to the imperial family and suggested that they, similar to Demeter and her daughter Persephone, were essential to the prosperity of the empire.
