Byzantine Rome (c. 540 - 775)

The Rome mint reopened about 540, after Justinian's conquests in Italy. It closed during the reign of Constantine V (741- 775).

Byzantine Empire, Justinian I, 4 April 527 - 14 November 565 A.D.

In 562, Belisarius stood trial for corruption in Constantinople, possibly with Procopius acting as praefectus urbi. He was found guilty and sent to prison.

Tiberius, 19 August 14 - 16 March 37 A.D.

|Tiberius|, |Tiberius,| |19| |August| |14| |-| |16| |March| |37| |A.D.||dupondius|
Tacitus in the annals of the year 22 states that Tiberius' repression of professional accusers had won for him the reputation of Moderatio (a quality which is frequently combined with Clementia). In "Two 'Virtues' of Tiberius: A Numismatic Contribution to the History of His Reign," C. Sutherland suggests the hypothesis that "the Senate, in A.D. 22, presented Tiberius with shields of Clemency and Moderation - an act of which an echo is preserved in the pages of Tacitus - and that, the formal but well-earned honour once conferred, the Senate proceeded by means of their coinage to call wide public attention to the imperial virtues which their ceremonial action had just recognised."

|99-50| |B.C.|, |Roman| |Republic,| |L.| |Papius,| |79| |B.C.||denarius| |serratus|
In Roman mythology, Juno was the daughter of Saturn and the wife of Jupiter and she had many attributes. Among these was Juno Sospita, who offered protection to women, accompanying them throughout their lives from birth to death. Women called upon her to aid in conception. Juno Sospita was characterized by her goatskin coat and headdress with the horns of a goat. The control marks on this type are normally paired related symbols. Each pair has only one set of dies.

|Pertinax|, |Pertinax,| |31| |December| |192| |-| |28| |March| |193| |A.D.||denarius|
Pertinax was the son of a humble charcoal-burner. After a successful career in the military, as a senator and then as praefect of the city of Rome, he reluctantly accepted the throne offered by the murderers of Commodus. After a reign of only 86 day he was murdered by mutinous guards.

Ops, more properly Opis, (Latin: "Plenty") was a fertility deity and earth-goddess in Roman mythology of Sabine origin.
