Description
Bearing the image of the city goddess on one side and the portrait of the Emperor Elagabalus on the other, this ancient coin evokes a brief ancient world for its luxury-loving lifestyle; Elagabalus gained fame (if not notoriety) for the sensual excess of his reign. The man and palace seem particularly well-suited to each other. This token of the Roman Empire in its glory is meant for a hand that appreciated the finer pleasures of life. - (FJ.2842)
