Ostia (Port of Rome), Italy

Ostia, at the mouth of the Tiber was the sea port for the city of Rome, providing Rome an easy means to enjoying all the riches of foreign lands. Its excellent baths, its good cheer and its healthy site, fanned by the breezes of the Mediterranean, made Ostia a favorite resort with the pleasure-loving Romans. The mint was transferred to Ostia from Carthage and then transferred from Ostia to Arelate. Dates of operation 308 - 313 A.D. Mintmarks: MOST, OST.

Maxentius, February 307 - 28 October 312 A.D.
