Nero Dupondius

Ancient Coins | user_47175

Hello, I recently won an auction for this cool coin. It's a Nero Dupondius from 65 AD. I think it's so amazing to have a piece of history from 2000 years ago.

Incredible coin!!! Beautiful!!!!

What a nice piece. Great portrait. You can date the coin from the TRP number, as most Emperors held the office annually. It was not a crime to assassinate the Emperor, but the person of the Tribune Potestas was inviolable, and even threatening the TRP was a capital offence. They also had veto powers over the Acts of the Senate. Very handy job to have when you walked around with a bulls-eye on your back.

Judging from the porousness of the fields, I wonder if it was buried for some of those 2000 years. A beautiful coin, thank you for sharing with us.
