VESPASIANUS (VESPASIAN), 69-79 AD - AV Aureus, Asia Minor/Syrian mint (circa 70-71)

weight 6,58gr. ; gold Ø 18,5mm.

obv. Laureate head right, surrounded by the legend;
IMP•CAES•VESPASIANVS•AVG
rev. SPQR - OB•CS within oak wreath (Corona Civica)

This coin was struck in Antiochia, shortly after Vespasianus had become the new emperor. It was in the time of the First Jewish-Roman war (66-73 A.D.), and possible the production of silver denariii and aurii in the mint of Antioch was related to this war. Money was needed to pay the Roman troops. The "civic crown" on the reverse traditionally had been presented to Romans who in battle saved the life of another citizen, though it was also awarded for saving a life under other circumstances, or for saving the state. It was one of the greatest public honours, and recipients received benefactions ranging from the practical to the honorary, such as having spectators rise as they entered a public theatre, The crown was awarded to Augustus in 27 B.C. as a reflection of his restoration of peace in the realm, by which he saved the lives of many Romans and preserved the state. By the reign of Claudius, however, the awarding pf the corona civica seems to have become standard part of the accession honours. From this cointype only one other example is known ; Biaggi collection (see Ars Classica Auction 72, Zürich 16-17 May 2013, no.623, about XF, sold for CHF 87.500 + 18%). Probably 2nd known. Excessively rare and of great historical importance.

Reverse: The reverse reads “SENATUS POPULESQUE ROMANUS OB CIVES SERVATOS”, meaning “Senatus Populesque Romanus” (approved by the Senate and people of Rome), “Ob Cives Servatos” (For having saved the citizens).

The Corona Civica was originally a military honour bestowed upon a Roman who had saved a fellow citizen′s life in battle. It was one of the greatest public honours. In the imperial era the honour developed from a coveted military decoration into an imperial emblem granted by the Senate to the emperor. The wreath was made of oak leaves and is sometimes called a corona quercea after the common name for the oak. Plutarch believed the oak was chosen for this highest of honours for several reasons. The tree was easily found throughout the countryside and was quite convenient for fashioning a wreath when the need arose. Also, the oak is sacred to Jupiter and Juno and thus was an appropriate symbolic honour given to one who has saved the life of a fellow Roman citizen. Finally, the early settlers of Rome, the Arcadians, were nicknamed ′acorn-eaters′ in an oracle of Apollo.

This aureus of Antiochia, struck in 72 (or perhaps early in 73), is of extraordinary artistic and historical interest. Aurei and denarii were minted at the beginning of Vespasians reign, between 69AD. Vespasins aurei from Egypt (?), Syria and Judaea have been divided into four groups. This aureus belongs to the fourth group dated to 72-73 AD and assigned to Antiochia by Metcalf, according to close stylistic parallels with his tetradrachms. The context of the production and issue of Vespasians eastern aurei are better documented than other Roman gold coinage. Indeed, Vespasian, sent to suppress the Jewish Revolt, was proclaimed emperor at the beginning of 69 AD. Tacitus writes that gold and silver were struck at Antiochia, thus, for the levying of troops, the recall of veterans and the maintaining of arms. Returning to Rome, Vespasian left Titus to prosecute the war. Once the war ended, the involved legions were dispatched to Pannonia and Moesia on the Danube because the priorities were to settle the situation on the lower Rhine after the Batavian Revolt and then to renew the full conquest of Britain. This aureus, probably, has been struck to celebrate freedom in the Roman Empire, as indicated by the legend. The issue is certainly part of the Judaea Capta series and it celebrates the end of the First Jewish war.

The mint of this early and extremely rare aureus of Vespasianus has been identified by RIC and RPC as that of Antiochia. It has been struck during the First Jewish War (66-73), in which Vespasian(66-69) and Titus(67-71) were the commanders of the Roman army. To pay the soldiers large quantities of money were needed, and this could be a reason for the coinage in Antiochia. The Romans finally succeeded in breaching the defenses of the weakened Jewish forces in the summer of 70, following the fall of Jerusalem. In the year 71 Titus left for Rome, leaving Legion X Fretensis to defeat the remaining Jewish strongholds including Herodium and Machaerus, finalizing the Roman campaign in Masada in 73–74. With the use of Libertas (freedom), Paci (peace), Pax (peace), Victoria (victory), we can see the motivs on the coins of Antiochia as Roman propaganda. An issue of great importance and fascination referring to the Judean campaign. From this cointype only 1 specimen is listed (hoard Didcot, England). This is probably the second known piece.

Under Vespasian, peace and tranquillity had been restored to the Roman world and the end of the third civil war in less than 100 years had come to an end. To this end, the coinage of Vespasian proclaimed that peace had been restored and a new Temple of Peace was erected in a new addition to the forum known as the Forum of Vespasian. The Temple of Vesta had burned down twice in written history. In 64 AD, the Great Fire of Rome destroyed most of Rome, including the Temple of Vesta. It was said by Cassius Dio to have been started by the infamous Nero, but according to Tacitus, Nero was at Antium at the time of the fire. Nevertheless, we find that Vespasian issued coins showing the Temple of Vesta had been reconstructed.

The First Jewish–Roman War (66–73 AD), sometimes called the Great Revolt, was the first of three major rebellions by the Jews against the Roman Empire, fought in the Eastern Mediterranean. The First Jewish–Roman War took place in Palestine, mainly in the province of Judea. The Great Revolt began in the year 66 AD, originating in Roman and Jewish ethnic and religious tensions. The crisis escalated due to anti-taxation protests and attacks upon Roman citizens. The experienced and unassuming general Vespasian was given the task, by Nero, of crushing the rebellion in Judaea province. His son Titus was appointed as second-in-command. Given four legions and assisted by forces of King Agrippa II, Vespasian invaded Galilee in 67. Within several months Vespasian and Titus took over the major Jewish strongholds of Galilee and finally overran Jodapatha, which was under the command of Yosef ben Matitiyahu, as well as subdued Tarichaea, which brought an end to the war in Galilee. Vespasian was called to Rome and appointed as Emperor in 69. With Vespasian′s departure, Titus moved to besiege the center of rebel resistance in Jerusalem in early 70. The first two walls of Jerusalem were breached within three weeks, but a stubborn rebel standoff prevented the Roman Army from breaking the third and thickest wall. Following a brutal seven-month siege, during which Zealot infighting resulted in the burning of the entire food supplies of the city, the Romans finally succeeded in breaching the defenses of the weakened Jewish forces in the summer of 70. The Second Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed. Following the fall of Jerusalem, in the year 71 Titus left for Rome, leaving Legion X Fretensis to defeat the remaining Jewish strongholds including Herodium and Machaerus, finalizing the Roman campaign in Masada in 73–74.

Today′s Kayseri in Turkey was originally named Mazaca. It was renamed Eusebia by Ariarathes V Eusebes, King of Cappadocia (163-130 BC). The last king of Cappadocia, King Archelaus, renamed it "Caesarea in Cappadocia" to honor Caesar Augustus upon his death in 14 AD. Muslim Arabs slightly modified the name into Kaisariyah, which became Kayseri when the Seljuk Turks took control, circa 1080 AD.

All of them are quite scarce compared with the large Syrian tetradrachm issues coined for Vespasian and some of theme are really rare. This specimen from the nineth year of the Cypriot issue features the ethnic reverse type of Zeus Salaminios. In RPC only 5 specimens are listed. Very rare.

The Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus Capitolinus was located on the Capitol and dated from 509 BC. It was destroyed by fire several times. The third temple to occupy this site was destroyed during the great fire of 80 AD, just five years after its dedication by Vespasianus. The celebrated structure was soon rebuilt and dedicated with great ceremony by Domitianus in 82 AD. This fourth temple was destined to survive for more than 400 years, being left to decay gradually following the triumph of Christianity in the 4th century.

Saecular Games Issue;
The Saecular Games (Latin: Ludi Saeculares, originally Ludi Terentini) was a Roman religious celebration involving sacrifices and theatrical performances, held in ancient Rome for three days and nights to mark the end of a saeculum and the beginning of the next. A saeculum, supposedly the longest possible length of human life, was considered as either 100 or 110 years in length. Some ancient authors traced official celebrations of the Games as far back as 509 BC, but the only clearly attested celebrations under the Roman Republic took place in 249 and in the 140s BC. They involved sacrifices to the underworld gods over three consecutive nights. The Games were revived in 17 BC by emperor Augustus. Later emperors held celebrations in AD 88 and 204, after intervals of roughly 110 years. However, they were also held by Claudius in AD 47 to celebrate the 800th anniversary of Rome′s foundation, which led to a second cycle of Games in 148 and 248. The Games were abandoned under later Christian emperors.

From historical sources, the basic ritual outline of the imperial Ludi Saeculares is clear. The festival began with nearly a week of preparatory events. First, the citizens brought gifts of agricultural produce (fruges) to various temples. On the following days, they received materials for the titual purification of private homes (suffimenta) from the priesthood in charge of organizing the Ludi Saeculares, the quindecimviri sacris faciundis (abbreviated XV S F), of which the emperor was a member. Then followed the six sacrifices at the heart of the celebration. They alternated between nighttime sacrifices to the Moirae (the Fates), the Ilithyiae (goddesses of childbirth), and Terra Mater ar riverside altars in the Tarentum, located on the point bar of the Campus Martius where the Tiber bends; and daytime sacrifices to Jupiter, Juno, Apollo, and Diana at temples on the Capitoline and Palatina Hills. During the same three days, 100 married women with children held sellisternia for Juno and Diana, ritual banquets at which images of the goddesses sat as honored guests. Theatrical performances in both Latin and Greek began the same night as the first sacrifice and continued for several days following the last sacrifice, along with chariot races, animal hunts, and other circus games.

Domitian′s Ludi Saeculares coinage (88 AD) violates the usual patterns of Roman mint production: one festival dominates all six denominations of gold, silver, and bronze. Consistency in legends and in reverse types across the issue suggests that unusual care was taken in designing these coins. One composition is even repeated in both silver and bronze. Ten events during the Ludi Saeculares, nine of them religious rituals prescribed by the Sibylline oracle, are depicted on the bronze coinage. Variations among specimens within each type, however, indicate that some details, such as the pedimental iconography of temples, were created by individual die carvers and must not have been specified in the original design. Using the textual evidence for other imperial celebrations of the Ludi Saeculares, previous scholars have focused on matching each coin type with a known event and each architectural background with a specific location in Rome. This article reveals the problems with such an approach and uses instead a variety of historical, iconographic, and numismatic methodologies to explore questions of design, audience, context, and interpretation. I conclude that, for a limited audience, these coins attempted to send a coherent message emphasizing the solemnity and ritual completeness of Domitian′s Ludi Saeculares and linking his celebration to Augustus′ Ludi Saeculares of 17 BC. But, because Domitian′s experiment in using the coinage for detailed communication was not subsequently imitated, this set of coins is unique. (ref. Melanie Grunow Sobocinski American Journal of Archaeology 2006 of the Archaeological Institute of America)
