Titus was eleventh of the twelve Caesars. Known for ending the Jewish revolt prior to becoming emperor, his treatment of the Jews was ruthless. But once an emperor, his actions changed dramatically – even maintaining a ten-year relationship with a Jewish princess! This generous leader completed the colosseum, aided Pompeii after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, provided relief from a 3-day fire in Rome, and gave all possible aid during one of the worst plague epidemics on record. Just 2 years, 2 months and 20 days into his term he fell ill, leaving the world to ponder his dying words, “I have made but one mistake.”
This ancient silver denarius is almost 2,000 years old, and displays the profile of Titus, the ruler who left Rome on firm financial footing. But because of his short reign, there are fewer of his coins available than those of other Roman emperors. We have less than 25 available (designs may vary), so order yours today!
