    Description

    Maxentius, A.D. 306-312. AV aureus minted at Rome, A.D. 307. Laureate head right of Maxentius/Hercules standing to right, holding club, bow and lion skin. 5.32 g. RIC 181 [as R4], C. 76. EF40 ICG, even wear with some minor, scattered marks. Extremely rare.
    Intense involvement with coinage was the norm rather than the exception with Roman emperors. They realized the geographic extent the coinage reached, and appreciated their significant propaganda value, as well as their artistic possibilities. In modern times the efforts of Theodore Roosevelt come to mind in his attempts to create a neo-classical ideal of coinage based on the finest examples of Greek and Roman medallists.
    From the Collection of Dr. Joseph M. Seventko. (PCGS# 100526)
