Description
Imagine who might have held this coin when it was newly minted and Rome was at its golden height. Perhaps it was a courtier in the entourage of the emperor, someone who knew Hadrian personally. It may have been a scholar who worked in the library at Athens, or an actor who performed in the theaters of Alexandria. To touch this token of the classical world today is to open up the corridors of time, to set the imagination traveling on a wondrous journey of discovery. - (FJ.3233)
