|Faustina| |Sr.|, |Faustina| |Sr.,| |Augusta| |25| |February| |138| |-| |Early| |141,| |Wife| |of| |Antoninus| |Pius||denarius|
Providentia is the personification of the ability to foresee and to make provision for the future. This ability was considered essential for the emperor and providentia was among the embodiments of virtues that were part of the imperial cult. Cicero said that providentia, memoria (memory) and intellegentia (understanding) are the three main components of prudentia, the knowledge what is good or bad or neither.

Tiberius, Restoration Issue Struck Under Titus, 80 - 81 A.D.

|Tiberius|, |Tiberius,| |Restoration| |Issue| |Struck| |Under| |Titus,| |80| |-| |81| |A.D.||as|
Titus followed his father's policy of honoring prior emperors by issuing commemorative coins. He issued coins that resembled original coin types in a contemporary style. In BMCRE Vol II, TITUS-TYPES OF ROME, Mattingly states: "The 'restored' series of Titus served a double purpose; it preserved the memory of famous coins of the early Empire which were becoming obsolete and it emphasized in the public mind the continuity between the Flavian dynasty and its predecessor." Restoration and restitution are employed by modern day authors to describe these issues.
RB112282. Copper as, RIC II-1 Titus 432, BMCRE II Titus 284, SRCV I 2591, Cohen I 72, aVF, dark green patina, rough, weight 8.839 g, maximum diameter 25.8 mm, die axis 180o, Rome mint, 80 - 81 A.D.; obverse TI CAESAR DIVI AVG F AVGVST IMP VIII, bare head left; reverse IMP T CAES DIVI VESP F AVG REST, legend around large S C; $110.00 (101.20)

"The Julian Star" appeared in the sky during the funeral games for Julius Caesar in July 44 B.C. It was a comet and the Romans believed it was a divine manifestation of the apotheosis of Julius Caesar.

|Faustina| |Sr.|, |Diva| |Faustina| |and| |Galerius| |Antoninus,| |c.| |147| |A.D.||provincial| |dupondius|
Galerius Antoninus was the second son of Antoninus Pius and Faustina, and he died young before his father's accession. This type is obviously a part of the massive commemorative issues struck by Antoninus after his wife died in 141. The mint is uncertain, traditionally being assigned to Cyprus, while Rome being another possibility based on the very fine style.

The carpentum was a type of state carriage, with two wheels, and commonly drawn by a pair of mules. The privilege of riding in a carpentum in public festivals was sometimes granted to females of the imperial family. Agrippina's, carriage on the reverse of this coin, was very richly adorned with painting or carving on the panels, and the cover was supported by caryatides on the corners. When Caligula instituted games and other solemnities in honor of his deceased mother Agrippina, her carpentum went in the procession (Suet. Calig. 13).
RB37533. Orichalcum sestertius, RIC I Gaius 55, BMCRE I Caligula 81, Cohen I 1, BnF II Caligula 128, Hunter I Gaius 36, SRCV I 1827, F, rough, weight 26.453 g, maximum diameter 38.2 mm, die axis 180o, Rome mint, posthumous, 37 - 41 A.D.; obverse AGRIPPINA M F MAT C CAESARIS AVGVSTI, draped bust right, her hair tied in queue in back and one lock falling down side of neck; reverse S P Q R / MEMORIAE / AGRIPPINAE, carpentum drawn by two mules left; SOLD

|Romulus|, |Romulus,| |Son| |of| |Maxentius,| |Died| |309| |A.D.||1/3| |follis|
David Sear identifies this simple round building without columns as the Sepulcher of Divus Romulus. The ruins of this tomb, which are sometimes erroneously called the stables of the Circus of Caracalla, are situated in a large quadrilateral enclosure forming part of the villa of Maxentius on the Appian way, about one mile from the gate of S. Sebastian.
