LOS 472


Hadrian wanted Antoninus Pius to succeed him as emperor and chose him as his successor. He asked Antoninus Pius to adopt Lucius Verus and Marcus Aurelius. Antoninus Pius adopted Lucius Verus and prepared him for emperor by giving him a good education. Afterwards Antoninus Pius Lucius Verus began to rule the empire together with Marcus Aurelius. Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus were equal in power and fame. During their reign with Marcus Aurelius, they shared harmonious rule, despite the differences in their characters. The reverse of this coin is a representation of the harmony and balanced rule of the two emperors. Lucius Verus, 161-169 AD. AV, Aureus. 9.72 g. 22.82 mm. Rome. Obv: IMP CAES L AVREL VERVS AVG.

Ref: CAESAR Aeneas, left, carrying palladium in right hand and Anchises on left shoulder, border of dots. Extremely Fine. Aeneas, son of the goddess Aphrodite and the Trojan prince Anchises... During the Trojan War, his mother Aphrodite was his tutelary goddess. Spending his childhood on the slopes of Mount Ida, the Trojan hero settled in Italy after the Trojan War and founded a kingdom, which will be the basis of Rome. On the coin we can see the old father of Aeneas. On his shoulders and in his other hand we see Palladium, the symbol of the city. In connection with a number of mysterious myths and the myth of the founding of the city of Ilion, Palladion was sent to Italy by Aeneas. Remus and Romulus, who founded afterwards the city Rome, are descended from Aeneas, i.e. from the Trojan family tree. Julius Caesar also traces his descent back to Aeneas and used this coin to refer to his own descent. Described by Pactolus Numismatic Academy (PNA).

PB Byzantine lead seal in the name of Theoktiste

★ Historically significant. Very rare! ★ PB Byzantine lead seal in the name of Theoktiste, Zoste Patrikia and Mother-in-law of Basileus (emperor Theophilos) (c. 830 AD or later) Obv: Cruciform invocative monogram (type V): Θεοτόκε βοήθει. Circular inscription between two borders of dots: [+Θε]οκτίστης ζωστῆ[ς πατρικίας]. Rev: Inscription of four lines beginning with a cross: +κ[αὶ] πενθερ[ά] τοῦ βασιλέω[ς]. Border of dots. Translation: Mother of God, help Theoktiste, zoste patrikia and mother-in-law of the Emperor. Weight: 9.83 g. Diameter: 26.64 mm. Of great historical value and unpublished. This seal belongs to Theoktiste Phlorina who was the mother of Empress Theodora and mother-in-law of Emperor Theophilos. In the ninth century the official title of zoste patrikia, was first granted to Theoktiste, mother of Theodora; it created a special honour for mothers of empresses, who wore a particularly belt (zoste) and gained the highest patrician rank reserved to women in court hierarchy. Theoktiste is described in sources as a iconodule which was much to the displeasure of the her son-in-law who was an ardent iconoclast. She bought a mansion in Constantinople, in the quarter of Psamathia (modern Samatya), from the patrikios Niketas, which became her residence. Her house was later transformed into the Gastria Monastery. Theoktiste and Theodora, as well as other members of the family, were buried there. For Theoktiste Phlorina, see Guilland 1971, p. 273–274; ODB, "Theophilos" (P. A. Hollingsworth), p. 2066; PmbZ 8025. The only known seal of Theoktiste Phlorina to date bears the title of ‘mother of the empress’ (μητηρ της βασιλεισης); see BLS II 1083; Oikonomides, Dated Byzantine Lead Seals 48; Roma Numismatics 93, 1486. But now, with our unique seal, we learn that Theoktiste also liked to bear the title of mother-in-law (ἡ πενθερά) of the emperor, although she had religious controversy with her son-in-law.

Dogs, and puppies in particular, were thought to have some magical properties in Roman World. Pliny praised the canine blood for its ability to ward of dangerous ghosts, and gave numerous medicinal recipes with lizard to cure everything (Pliny, N.H. 29 and 30). Dog images were among the required items for performing some spells (Ankarloo, B., and Clark, S. (eds) 1999: Witchcraft and Magic in Europe: Ancient Greece and Rome, p. 75-76). Representation of a fierce dog was intended to protect the home from the evil eye (Parker, A., and McKie, S. (eds) 2018: Material Approaches to Roman Magic: Occult Objects and Supernatural Substances, p. 343). The prevalence of dogs and lizards on magical gems and tesserae for protection is an indication of the exceptional value the animals were thought to have, an indication that they were somehow special, and therefore might be worthy of the gods. For the talismans with dogs and lizards, see The Campbell Bonner Magical Gems Database. Weight: 2.90 g. Diameter: 19.22 mm.# Described by Pactolus Numismatic Academy (PNA).
