Description
Marc Antony is one of the most romantic figures in all history. Handsome and charismatic, he left a lasting mark on the pages of history. This splendid coin commemorates his marriage to Octavia, sister of the future Emperor Augustus, whom Antony wed for political reasons. When Antony later repudiated Octavia in favor of the Egyptian queen Cleopatra, her angry brother waged war against the two lovers. We are reminded that all history comes down to human issues, to matters of love and passion. This token of Roman glory puts us in touch with the splendors of a vanished world. - (FJ.4468)
