Description
In Edward Gibbon's famous history of the Roman Empire, he calls the reign of Antoninus Pius the golden height of Rome. History backs up this assertion, for it was a period of great prosperity and peace, during which the borders of the empire were secure and the citizens were content. The persons who first held this superb coin were witness to that era; perhaps they even left their mark on it. When we wear it today in its radiant frame, we touch directly upon the glory that was Rome. - (FJ.2930)
