Travel & Geography on Ancient Coins

Here we depict coins that relate to travel but also to places in the ancient world. We will also include coins from the less common cities and mints when we want to share information about the location.

Annona was the goddess of harvest and Ceres the goddess of agriculture. This reverse refers to the transportation of grain by sea from the provinces (especially from Africa) and its distribution to the people. By the Code De Naviculariis, the mariners appointed to carry grain from Egypt could be executed if they did not keep the proper course; and if they did not sail in the proper season, the master of the vessel would be banished.
