Security (Securitas)

Securitas was depicted on Roman coins more frequently in perilous times. Securitas coin types may have been appeals to the gods, or expressions of hope or intent, or perhaps it simply propaganda.

Gallienus, August 253 - September 268 A.D.

|Gallienus|, |Gallienus,| |August| |253| |-| |September| |268| |A.D.||antoninianus|
Securitas stands at ease, relaxed, leaning on a column, but security was only wishful thinking when this coin was struck. There were so many invasions in the next few years that they confused the ancient sources and much of the history is lost. In 267, the Goths sacked several cities in southern Greece including Athens, Corinth, Argos and Sparta. Gallienus defeated them, but the Alamanni would come the year after.
