Description
When this coin was newly minted, the Roman Empire stretched from Spain to Persia, from Britain to Egypt. This denarius may have passed then from hand to hand, from a sailor in Athens, to a merchant in Ephesus, to an actor in Alexandria. The energy of those ancient lives, for which this coin is perhaps the only clue, radiates from it still. When we wear it today in its frame of bright gold, we add our own chapter to its long and fascinating history. - (FJ.3232)
