Art History

The gold aureus became a regular part of Roman coinage in the time of Julius Caesar (49–44 B.C.), and he was the first Roman to mint coins bearing his own portrait. After the emperor Augustus (ruled 27 B.C.–A.D. 14) received authority to issue coinage, Roman coins became inextricably linked with the emperor’s sovereignty. Thereafter, coins produced at the imperial mints bore portraits of the ruling emperor and his family, serving to circulate the ruler’s image throughout the empire.

 

Description

The Museum’s collection includes a gold aureus minted at Rome during the reign of the emperor Antonius Pius (ruled A.D. 138–161). The coin shows on the obverse a draped bust of his wife, the empress Faustina, whose death and deification in A.D. 141 the coin commemorates. Our regal earrings are based on this ancient Roman coin. 14K gold overlay, with topaz-colored glass cabochons. Imported. 7/8”L. Pierced, with gold-filled posts.
