  • Trajan is probably best known for his military skill, this led him to become the most formidable soldier-emperor the Roman Empire ever had to offer. He led the Empire expanding it to the greatest extent it would ever reach until his death in 117 A.D.

     

    Trajan was known as one of the 'good emperors'. Along with his military expansion, he oversaw building projects which was well received alongside his admired leadership.

     

    This unusual mount shows the bust of a man rising from an acanthus leaf. A loop attached to the reverse. The acanthus leaf signifies that the subject has died and passed into the afterlife, the death and rebirth; it is often associated with the apotheosis of an important individual. It is likely that this represents the popular Roman Emperor Trajan who died in 117 A.D.
