    Description

    Hadrian, A.D. 117-138. AR denarius minted A.D. 132-134. Bare head left of Hadrian/Galley left. RIC 209. Fine+.
    A fine beginning for a collection of coins minted by the traveling emperor. From A.D. 121 to A.D. 132 Hadrian visited his far-flung provinces in order to personally understand this diverse populace and to come to grips with the gargantuan task of governing the immense Roman world with a cohesive, yet sympathetic, rule. Afterwards, he issued a series of coins unparalleled in numismatics: his travel-commemoratives, in all three metals, of his visits to all the regions of the Roman Empire. Later, the philosopher-king Marcus Aurelius and his successors would have to admit geographic and political defeat. (PCGS# 100422)
