Philip II as Augustus 247AD Silver Authentic Ancient Roman Coin PAX i53210

Philip II as Augustus 247AD Silver Authentic Ancient Roman Coin PAX i53210

Item: i53210 Authentic Ancient Coin of. Philip II – Roman Caesar: 244-249 A. Silver Antoninianus 22mm (3.41 grams) Struck at the mint of Rome 247 A. Reference: RIC 231c (Philip I), C 23 IMPPHILIPPVSAVG – Radiate, draped and cuirassed bust right. PAXAETERNA – Pax standing left, holding branch and scepter. In Roman mythology , Pax (Latin for peace) (her Greek equivalent was Eirene) was recognized as a goddess during the rule of Augustus. On the Campus Martius , she had a temple called the Ara Pacis , and another temple on the Forum Pacis. She was depicted in art with olive branches, a cornucopia and a scepter. There was a festival in her honor on January 3. Daughter of Jupiter and Iustitia. Pax was often associated with spring. Eirene , or Irene Greek for “peace”; the Roman equivalent was Pax , one of the Horae , was the personification of peace, and was depicted in art as a beautiful young woman carrying a cornucopia , sceptre and a torch or rhyton. She is said sometimes to be the daughter of Zeus and Themis. She was particularly well regarded by the citizens of Athens. After a naval victory over Sparta in 375 BC, the Athenians established a cult for Eirene, erecting altars to her. They held an annual state sacrifice to her after 371 BC to commemorate the Common Peace of that year and set up a votive statue in her honour in the Agora of Athens. The statue was executed in bronze by Cephisodotus the Elder , likely the father or uncle of the famous sculptor Praxiteles. It was acclaimed by the Athenians, who depicted it on vases and coins. Although the statue is now lost, it was copied in marble by the Romans; one of the best surviving copies (right) is in the Munich Glyptothek. It depicts the goddess carrying a child with her left arm Ploutos , the god of plenty and son of Demeter , the goddess of agriculture. Eirene’s missing right hand once held a sceptre. She is shown gazing maternally at Ploutos, who is looking back at her trustingly. The statue is an allegory for Plenty (Ploutos) prospering under the protection of Peace (Eirene); it constituted a public appeal to good sense. The copy in the Glyptothek was originally in the collection of the Villa Albani in Rome but was looted and taken to France by Napoleon I. Following Napoleon’s fall, the statue was bought by Ludwig I of Bavaria. Marcus Julius Philippus Severus , also known as Philippus II , Philip II and Philip the Younger (238 249) was the son and heir of the Roman Emperor Philip the Arab by his wife Roman Empress Marcia Otacilia Severa. According to numismatic evidence, he had a sister called Julia Severa or Severina, whom the ancient Roman sources do not mention. When his father became emperor in 244 he was appointed Caesar. Philippus was consul in 247 and 248. His father was killed in battle by his successor Decius in 249. When news of this death reached Rome, he was murdered by the Praetorian Guard. He died in his mother’s arms. When he died, he was eleven years old. What is a certificate of authenticity and what guarantees do you give that the item is authentic?

You are purchasing an Authentic Ancient 1st Century AD, 1900+ years old! Roman Empire AE Coin of Caligula, set in a 29 mm 925 solid sterling silver bezel. 925 solid sterling silver 21 popcorn chain included. Bare head left C CAESAR AVG GERMANICVS PON M TR POT. Vesta seated left, holding patera and sceptre VESTA S C. The coin minted in Rome, circa 37 – 41 A. Please take a look at the photos for details. Thank you for looking. Properly Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus (31 August AD 12 24 January AD 41) was Roman Emperor in AD 3741. Born Gaius Julius Caesar Germanicus (not to be confused with Julius Caesar), Caligula was a member of the house of rulers conventionally known as the Julio-Claudian dynasty. Caligula’s biological father was Germanicus, and he was the great-nephew and adopted son of Emperor Tiberius. The young Gaius earned the nickname “Caligula” (meaning “little soldier’s boot”, the diminutive form of caliga, hob-nailed military boot) from his father’s soldiers while accompanying him during his campaigns in Germania. The conflict eventually led to the destruction of her family, with Caligula as the sole male survivor. Untouched by the deadly intrigues, Caligula accepted the invitation to join the Emperor in AD 31 on the island of Capri, where Tiberius had withdrawn five years earlier. With the death of Tiberius in AD 37, Caligula succeeded his grand uncle and adoptive grandfather as emperor. There are few surviving sources about the reign of Emperor Caligula, although he is described as a noble and moderate ruler during the first six months of his reign. After this, the sources focus upon his cruelty, sadism, extravagance, and sexual perversity, presenting him as an insane tyrant. While the reliability of these sources is questionable, it is known that during his brief reign, Caligula worked to increase the unconstrained personal power of the emperor, as opposed to countervailing powers within the principate. He directed much of his attention to ambitious construction projects and luxurious dwellings for himself, and initiated the construction of two aqueducts in Rome: the Aqua Claudia and the Anio Novus. During his reign, the empire annexed the Kingdom of Mauretania as a province. In early AD 41, Caligula was assassinated as a result of a conspiracy by officers of the Praetorian Guard, senators, and courtiers. The conspirators’ attempt to use the opportunity to restore the Roman Republic was thwarted: on the day of the assassination of Caligula, the Praetorian Guard declared Caligula’s uncle, Claudius, the next Roman emperor.

AELIA FLACILLA Ancient Chi-Rho Christian Symbol 379AD Roman Coin VICTORY i66487

AELIA FLACILLA Ancient Chi-Rho Christian Symbol 379AD Roman Coin VICTORY i66487

Item: i66487 Authentic Ancient Coin of. Wife of Theodosius I. Bronze AE2 21mm (4.30 grams) Antioch mint, struck 379-388 A. Reference: RIC IX 61; Sear 20616 AEL FLACCILLA AVG – Diademed, draped bust bust right. SALVS REIPVBLICAE / ANTB, Victory seated right on cuirass, inscribing a Chi-Rho on a shield set on column. The reverse is an allusion to Saint Constantine’s vision from God to paint the Chi-Rho on his shields and go win a victory with it. Here we have the actual personification of victory inscribing the Chi-Rho, also known as a Christogram, or in other words Christ’s monogram. VICTOR ERIS – The monogram of Christ was introduced by order of Constantine the Great on a standard, when setting out on his campaign against Maxentius. This standard being carried into the middle of the ranks, where the danger appeared the greatest, and invariably bringing victory with it, according to Eusebius, it at length became the belief, that success was to be attributed to the standard alone; and hence is gathered the sense of the legend, HOC SIGNO VICTORY ERIS, which, in all probability, was inscribed upon the actual standard. The Chi Rho is one of the earliest christograms used by Christians. It is formed by superimposing the first two letters in the Greek spelling of the word Christ (Greek :), chi=ch and rho=r, in such a way to produce the monogram. The Chi-Rho symbol was also used by pagan Greek scribes to mark, in the margin, a particularly valuable or relevant passage; the combined letters Chi and Rho standing for chrston, meaning good. Although not technically a cross, the Chi Rho invokes the crucifixion of Jesus as well as symbolizing his status as the Christ. There is early evidence of the Chi Rho symbol on Christian Rings of the third century. The labarum (Greek:) was a vexillum (military standard) that displayed the “Chi-Rho” symbol, formed from the first two Greek letters of the word “Christ” (Greek: , or) – Chi and Rho. It was first used by the Roman emperor Constantine I. Since the vexillum consisted of a flag suspended from the crossbar of a cross, it was ideally suited to symbolize crucifixion. The Chi-Rho symbol was also used by Greek scribes to mark, in the margin, a particularly valuable or relevant passage; the combined letters Chi and Rho standing for chrston, meaning good. Aelia Flavia Flaccilla (died 385), first wife of the Roman Emperor Theodosius I. She was of Hispanian Roman descent. During her marriage to Theodosius, she gave birth to two sons – future Emperors Arcadius and Honorius – and a daughter, Aelia Pulcheria. She was given the title of Augusta , as her coinage shows. According to Laus Serenae (“In Praise of Serena”), a poem by Claudian, both Serena and Flaccilla were from Hispania. A passage of Themistius (Oratio XVI, De Saturnino) has been interpreted as identifying Flavius Claudius Antonius, Praetorian prefect of Gaul from 376 to 377 and Roman consul in 382, to be her father. However the relation is considered doubtful. In 1967, John Robert Martindale, later one of several article writers in the Prosopography of the Later Roman Empire, suggested that the passage actually identifies Antonius as the brother-in-law of Theodosius. However the passage is vague enough to allow Flavius Afranius Syagrius, co-consul of Antonius in 382, to be the brother-in-law in question. The only kin clearly identified in primary sources was her nephew Nebridius, son of an unnamed sister. He married Salvina, a daughter of Gildo. Their marriage was mentioned by Jerome in his correspondence with Salvina. They had a son and a daughter. In about 375-376, Flaccilla married Theodosius I, a son of Count Theodosius. At the time Theodosius had fallen out of favor with Valentinian I and had withdrawn to civilian life in Cauca, Gallaecia. Their first son Arcadius was born prior to the elevation of his parents on the throne. Their secold son Honorius was born on 9 September 384. Their daughter Pulcheria has been suggested to have been born prior to the elevation of her parents to the throne due to another passage of Laus Serenae. She predeceased her parents as mentioned in the writings of Gregory of Nyssa. Mentioned alongside the imperial children by Ambrose. Has at times been suggested as a third son. However, Gregory of Nyssa reports the existence of only three imperial children and other sources do not mention Gratian. Gratian was possibly a relation of some sort but not an actual member of the Theodosian dynasty. Valens, emperor of the Eastern Roman Empire was killed in the Battle of Adrianople (9 August 378). He was survived by his wife Albia Dominica and his daughters Anastasia and Carosa. He had however survived his only son, Valentinianus Galates. His nephew Gratian, Emperor of the Western Roman Empire, was his heir and assumed control of the Eastern Empire as well. With his younger half-brother Valentinian II as his nominal co-ruler. On 19 January, Gratian declared Theodosius, magister militum per Illyricum, to be his new colleague in the Eastern Roman Empire. Theodosius seems to have been the senior officer of Roman origins available for promotion at the time. Merobaudes and Frigeridus, the two magistri militum in praesenti were probably not considered due to their Germanic origins. Several other equivalent positions remained vacant since the deaths of their last holders in Adrianople. At this point Flacilla became the Empress consort. She was a fervent supporter of the Nicene Creed. Sozomen reports her preventing a conference between Theodosius and Eunomius of Cyzicus who served as figurehead of Anomoeanism, a distinct sect of Arians. Ambrose and Gregory of Nyssa praise her Christian virtue and comment on her role as “a leader of justice” and “pillar of the Church”. Theodoret reports on her works of charity, personally tending to the disabled. She died in 385 (or 386). Her death is mentioned by (among others) Claudian, Zosimus, Philostorgius and Joannes Zonaras. According to the Chronicon Paschale, the palatium Flaccillianum of Constantinople was named in her honor. A statue of her was placed within the Byzantine Senate. She is commemorated as a saint by the Eastern Orthodox Church, her feast day being 14 September.

50 ANCIENT DIRTY UNCLEANED ROMAN COINS APROX 150BC-450AD-Fun Hobby

I WILL ENCLOSE DIFFERENT CLEANING METHODS IN EVERY ORDER. You may have noticed that the price for my ancient dirty coin listings has gone up. I will attempt to explain below what has happened. Please read below to get the details. The uncleaned coin market is changing. The amount of coins that are available are drying up. They are getting harder and harder to find and the prices have been increasing as well. These coins were sorted by the Excavators in Europe and sent to me in taped up bags. (see photo’s) I have changed the price and the description because the cheaper lots are no longer available. Hope to continue doing business with you and Thank You for your time and understanding. But Please keep in mind, these are 2,000 year old coins with an Amazing story and History behind them. APPROX- 100BC TO 450 AD. THESE ARE RIGHT FROM THE EXCAVATOR IN EUROPE. I sell in lots of 5, 10, 100 and Kilo’s. I will also sell in larger lots. If interested contact me and we’ll work something out. These aren’t the’junk’ coins that other sellers are trying to sell. These coins have 2,000 years of dirt caked up on them and it is very hard to see what is behind the dirt until cleaned. But about 30% will show detail through the dirt, this is more than other sellers could claim. Look at the Feedback from these other sellers than look at mine! I can’t guarantee Silver but I can guarantee the possibility of finding them based on the thousands I have cleaned in the past. Forget about finding Gold in any sellers dirty ancient coins. Those are carefully cherry picked in Europe. If anybody says there is a chance of finding gold are just down right lying! DIRTY ANCIENT ROMAN COINS. After cleaning, some will show no detail, some will show some detail, and some will be Gems. The cleaning process takes several weeks to several months. But that is part of the fun, you never know what youll find and its a great hobby. So if you feel adventurous and lucky, try some dirty coins. Even if the coin shows very little detail, you still have an Ancient Coin many centuries old. How many people could claim that? Good Luck and Have fun. THESE COINS ARE BECOMING VERY HARD TO FIND. Restoring and collecting Roman coins is getting more popular all over the world by the day! It is truly a fascinating hobby which combines numerous areas of knowledge such as numismatics, ancient history and a feeling of treasure hunting (you never know what is under the dirt); learning new things, training mental agility, discovery (there are so many different types to discover including types and variations previously unknown) and handicraft (cleaning the coins). You can clean them using a variety of methods (soap and hot water, olive oil, distilled water, stiff brush, electrolysis or using chemicals). I guarantee that these coins are absolutely genuine! The coins are at least 1500 to 2000 years old! Most all of the coins are from the Roman Imperial and Provincial. , and some are from earlier or later times and some from the Byzantine era. Sizes: coins are up to 30mm Ases, Folli, Sestertii, Antoniniani, Maiorine, Denarii etc. , many are of the smaller size because those were the coins that were used most in everyday Rome. Source of the coins. The coins come from all over Europe in places such as Viminacium a Roman town near Kostolats in Eastern Europe what is now Serbia. Some from what is now Croatia. These were often buried in the cellar, beneath trees, next to local landmarks such as aquaducts and bridges. When the owner died (many of the owners were soldiers sent off to serve elsewhere), the coins were forgotten. Today, nearly 2,000 years later they are being found using electronic means and you have the ability to own some now. They are not cherry picked or sorted through but just picked out of the batch. SOME OF THE SMALLER COINS COULD BE THE HIGHLY COLLECTABE WIDOWS MITES. WIDOWS MITES ARE A HIGHLY COLLECTABE COIN BECAUSE THEY ARE MENTIONED IN THE. THIS IS THE COIN JESUS AND HIS FOLLOWERS WOULD HAVE HAD BECAUSE THEY ARE A LOW DENOMINATION COIN AND JESUS AND HIS FOLLOWERS WERE MOSTLY POOR. WIDOWS MITES ARE A SMALL COIN AND UNFORTUNATLY 90% 0F THEM DIDNT HOLD UP WELL AFTER 20 CENTURIES UNDER GROUND. BUT IF YOU HAVE A TRAINED EYE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SPOT THEM. A WIDOWS MITE WITH NO DETAIL IS STILL WORTH MORE THAN WHAT YOU PAID FOR THE COIN. The Widows Mite Biblical coin refers to the story of the poor widow whom Jesus Christ commended in the Temple for having given all she had, two mites. And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two Mites… And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: for all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all she had. THERE IS ALSO MENTION OF THE WIDOWS MITE IN. There are 2 different Widows Mites. Lepton Widows Mite 103-76 BC (Widows Mite lepton as mentioned in scriptures) minted under Alexander Jannaeus. Prutah Widows Mite 103-76 BC Often currently referred to as the Widows Mite but was a larger coin with similar markings to the lepton minted under Alexander Jannaeus. These coins were minted by the Maccabees in Jerusalem and used in Jerusalem during the life of Jesus and the disciples. It was the penny of that time period and is famously mentioned in the New Testament. There are no two coins of this kind alike! They were minted by hand over 2000 years ago and were in circulation for many years, causing many Pruta and Lepton coins that are found today to be in poor condition. Patience is the key element for the cleaning of your coins. I cannot stress that strongly enough. It took at least 1,500 or more years for this dirt to accumulate and it does not come off without some time and effort. Start with only a few coins if you never cleaned coins before to refine your skills. Resist the urge to hurry the clean up process. It leads to shortcuts that could damage the coin. The cleaning process could take up to several weeks to up to 9 months. The free listing tool.

Jewess seated right mourning below right of trophy; in exergue, IVDAEA. Provided with certificate of authenticity. CERTIFIED AUTHENTIC by Sergey Nechayev, PhD – Numismatic Expert. Judaea Capta coins (also spelled Judea Capta) were a series of commemorative coins originally issued by the Roman Emperor Vespasian to celebrate the capture of Judaea and the destruction of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem by his son Titus in 70 AD during the First Jewish Revolt. There are several variants of the coinage. The reverse of the coins shows a Jewish female (representing Judaea) seated right in an attitude of mourning at the base of a palm tree, with either a captive Jewish male standing right, with his hands bound behind his back, or the standing figure of the victorious emperor, or the goddess Victory, with a trophy of weapons, shields, and helmets to the left. The female figure may reflect the prophecy of Isaiah 3:8, 25-26: For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen… Thy men shall fall by the sword and thy mighty in the war. And her gates shall lament and mourn, and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground. The Judaea Capta coins were struck for 25 years under Vespasian and his two sons who succeeded him as Emperor – Titus and Domitian. These commemorative coins were issued in bronze, silver and gold by mints in Rome, throughout the Roman Empire, and in Judaea itself. They were issued in every denomination, and at least 48 different types are known. Only bronze’Judaea Capta’ coins were struck in Caesarea, in the defeated Roman province of Judea. These coins are much cruder than the Roman issues, and the inscriptions are in Greek rather than Latin. The designs feature the Goddess Nike writing on a shield, Minerva with a spear, shield, trophy and palm tree, etc. Most such coins were issued during the reign of the Emperor Domitian (81-96 AD). Unusually, a’Judaea Capta’ coin was also minted by the Jewish ruler Agrippa II, the great-grandson of Herod the Great. Brought up in Rome at the court of Claudius, Agrippa was thoroughly Romanised and was a close friend of Titus, whom he supported throughout the First Jewish Revolt. His bronze coin was minted at Tiberias and shows a portrait of Titus on the obverse with the Greek inscription”, while the reverse depicted the goddess Nike advancing right holding a wreath and palm branch over her shoulder, with a star in upper right field and the inscription’ETO – KS BA AGRI-PPA’. Vespasian – Roman Emperor : 69-79 A. Sole Reign (with Titus and Domitian as Caesars) 71-79 A. Sole Reign (with Titus as Imperator and Domitian as Caesar). Titus Flavius Vespasianus , known in English as Vespasian (November 17 9AD – June 23 79AD), was a Roman Emperor who reigned from 69 AD until his death in 79 AD. Vespasian was the founder of the short-lived Flavian dynasty, which ruled the Roman Empire between 69 AD and 96 AD He was succeeded by his sons Titus (79-81) and Domitian (81-96). Vespasian descended from a family of equestrians which rose into the senatorial rank under the emperors of the Julio-Claudian dynasty. Although he attained the standard succession of public offices, holding the consulship in 51, Vespasian became more reputed as a successful military commander, partaking in the Roman invasion of Britain in 43, and subjugating the Judaea province during the Jewish rebellion of 66. While Vespasian was preparing to besiege the city of Jerusalem during the latter campaign, emperor Nero committed suicide, plunging the Roman Empire into a year of civil war known as the Year of the Four Emperors. After Galba and Otho perished in quick succession, Vitellius became emperor in mid 69. In response, the armies in Egypt and Judaea themselves declared Vespasian emperor on July 1. On December 20, Vitellius was defeated, and the following day, Vespasian was declared emperor by the Roman Senate. Little factual information survives about Vespasian’s government during the ten years he was emperor. His reign is best known for financial reforms following the demise of the Julio-Claudian dynasty, the successful campaign against Judaea, and several ambitious construction projects such as the Colosseum. Upon his death on June 23, 79, he was succeeded by his eldest son Titus.

In Roman statuary, the weapon is cradled in the bearer’s left arm or on Trajan’s column, for example, it is stuck into the left side of the officer’s chest band. Existing examples on statuary show that the Parazonium’s scabbard shape is a direct copy of the few existing Greek Parazoniums on display at various Greek museums. The weapon’s hilt, grip, pommel are not copies of the Greek style. The pommel cap is either an eagle’s head or a bi-lobed pommel. The details of the hand grip on the statues are no longer clear after 2,000 years. The guard, contrary to some reports are authentic and are a rather theatrical “S” shape with inset detail. The Roman Parazonium blade tended to be leaf shape and approximately 15″-19″ long. The use of the Roman parazonium tended to be somewhat theatrical in the sense that it was a mark of rank and it was used to rally the troops. Titus Flavius Domitianus (24 October 51 â 18 September 96), known as Domitian , was a Roman Emperor who reigned from 14 September 81 until his death. Domitian was the third and last emperor of the Flavian dynasty , the house which ruled the Roman Empire between 69 and 96 and encompassed the reigns of Domitian’s father Vespasian (69â79), his older brother Titus (79â81), and that of Domitian himself. Domitian’s youth and early career were largely spent in the shadow of his brother Titus, who gained military renown during the First Jewish-Roman War. This situation continued under the rule of Vespasian, who became emperor on 21 December 69 following the civil war known as the Year of the Four Emperors. While Titus effectually reigned as co-emperor with his father, Domitian was left with honours but no responsibilities. Vespasian died on 23 June 79 and was succeeded by Titus, whose own reign came to an unexpected end when he was struck by a fatal illness on 13 September 81. The following day Domitian was declared emperor by the Praetorian Guard , commencing a reign which lasted fifteen yearsâlonger than any man who had governed Rome since Tiberius. As emperor, Domitian strengthened the economy by revaluing the Roman coinage , expanded the border defenses of the Empire, and initiated a massive building programme to restore the damaged city of Rome. Significant wars were fought in Britain, where Gnaeus Julius Agricola expanded the Roman Empire as far as modern day Scotland , and in Dacia , where Domitian was unable to procure a decisive victory against king Decebalus. Domitian’s government nonetheless exhibited totalitarian characteristics. As emperor, he saw himself as the new Augustus , an enlightened despot destined to guide the Roman Empire into a new era of Flavian renaissance. Religious, military, and cultural propaganda fostered a cult of personality , and by nominating himself perpetual censor , he sought to control public and private morals. As a consequence, Domitian was popular with the people and the army but despised by members of the Roman Senate as a tyrant. Domitian’s reign came to an end on 18 September 96 when he was assassinated by court officials. The same day he was succeeded by his friend and advisor Nerva , who founded the long-lasting Nerva-Antonine dynasty. After his death, Domitian’s memory was condemned to oblivion by the Roman Senate, while senatorial authors such as Tacitus , Pliny the Younger and Suetonius published histories propagating the view of Domitian as a cruel and paranoid tyrant. Modern history has rejected these views, instead characterising Domitian as a ruthless but efficient autocrat, whose cultural, economic and political programme provided the foundation of the peaceful 2nd century.
