"CAMVLODVNVM (Colchester, U.K. - 51°54'N, 0°54'E) in Essex, England was the ancestral capital of the Trinovantes and is the oldest recorded British city. 'Camulodunum' comes from the Celtic war god Camulos and means "the strong place of Camulos". King Cunobelinus (Shakespeare's Cymbeline) of the Catuvellauni made it his capital in 10 AD. Since the Romans knew him as 'Rex Britonnorum' (King of the Britains), when Claudius invaded Britain in 43 it was his target. It served as the first Roman capital, but was sacked by Boudicca in 60. Under Carausius and Allectus (283-296) the city hosted a mint." - from Moneta Historical Research by Tom Schroer

Pax, regarded by the ancients as a goddess, was worshiped not only at Rome but also at Athens. Her altar could not be stained with blood. Claudius began the construction of a magnificent temple to her honor, which Vespasian finished, in the Via Sacra. The attributes of Peace are the hasta pura, the olive branch, the cornucopia, and often the caduceus. Sometimes she is represented setting fire to a pile of arms.
