These genuine silver coins from the second and third centuries CE offer a view of the roots of modern Western civilization evident in the Roman Empire.
The obverse side of each coin shows the portrait of the emperor at the time of mintage; on the reverse sides, images depict history, mythology, and military themes. Numerous pagan gods and goddesses dominated Roman life and were reflected in the popularity of these themes.
Coins were made by hand by inserting a hot metal blank between two dies and striking the upper die with a heavy hammer. Because of this crude process, the coins are not perfectly round.
