Hand struck over 1,700 years ago, these coins depict Emperor Victorinus on the obverse and important Roman goddesses on the reverse. Victorinus was a skilled military leader who regained territory for the empire including Spain. His downfall resulted from relentless pursuit of married women. Victorinus was slain in A.D. 271 after propositioning one too many wives of his officers.
Fides, the goddess of trust and good faith, is seen on one reverse – holding two military standards and sending a message that the citizens were protected, and that Rome was a formidable target for enemies. The other reverse features Salus, the beautiful goddess of health and well being, feeding a snake in a gesture of healing. These coins from Victorinus’ brief A.D. 269-271 reign, in sharply detailed condition, are attractively priced for their age and quality. Order today!
