Why purchase this Ancient Roman Commemorative Bronze Nummus?
Roman Emperor Constantine I issued a commemorative coin in celebration of the Millennial Anniversary of the founding of Rome. The coin illustrates the myth of the abandoned young twins Remus and Romulus suckling at the great wolf. As adults, the twins founded the city of Rome, before Romulus killed Remus in the midst of a quarrel.
Exceptional detailed imagery
The reverse of this commemorative coin features the twins Remus and Romulus beneath the famous she wolf, accompanied by two stars and a Mint mark.
It was common for coinage struck by the ancient Romans to represent the god or goddess named as the "patron saint" of the city. The obverse features the image of Roma, goddess of the city, wearing imperial robes and helmet, bordered by the inscription "URBS ROMA" (city of Rome).
