Vesta

Vesta was originally a household spirit. Later she was personified as the goddess of the hearth and given the stature of her Greek equivalent, Hestia. In the temple of Vesta her flame was kept alive by Vestal Virgins.

Vesta was originally a household spirit. Later she was personified as the goddess of the hearth and given the stature of her Greek equivalent, Hestia. In the temple of Vesta, her sacred flame was kept alive by Vestal Virgins. In 394, by order of the Christian emperor Theodosius I in his campaign to eliminate pagan practices in Rome, the fire of Vesta was extinguished.

Although the style of coinage struck at Western branch mints is different from coins struck at Rome, references and sales listings often attribute them to Rome. This Caligula type is extremely rare. Nearly all were probably overstruck by Claudius. None of the hundreds of Caligula asses on Coin Archives share this Western branch style.
