Loyal to the memory of his grandfather and uncle, Gordianus I & Gordianus II, the young emperor′s government ventured to cashier the legion of the Numidian governor Capellianus which had brought to the downfall of Gordianus I and II. For this act of piety he received the title of ′Pius′, which first appeared on the coinage in 240 AD. At that time Gordianus III had the age of fifteen years.

Venus is the Roman goddess of love, beauty, prosperity, fertility, and victory. She was so important to Romans that they claimed her as their ancestress. According to mythology, her son Aeneas fled from Troy to Italy. He became the ancestor of Remus and Romulus, who founded Rome. Venus′s festival took place on April 1. It was called the Veneralia. Aside from draping Venus in flowers, followers also carefully washed her statue, and promised to fulfill the moral obligations of good Roman wives and husbands. Many men and women also asked her advice on matters of the heart.

Plenty of artworks depict Venus and also on coins and also on coins we often see her depicted. Venus had many titles, representing her importance; Venus Cloacina (the Purifier), Venus Felix (the Lucky, suggesting she could be prayed to for good luck), Venus Genetrix (Mother, representing her role as mother of Rome), Venus Murcia (Myrtle, representing the importance of this plant to her), Venus Verticordia (the Changer of Hearts, representing her role in love) and Venus Victrix (Victorious, showing that she was a goddess of victory)

The old city of Attuda was a border city in ancient times between Caria and Phrygia. Nowadays situated near Hisarköy, 17 km southwest of Denizli-Sarayköy Town. The shortest route from Tripolis and Laodicea to Aphrodisias passed through Attuda. The date of the founding of the city is unknown, but it is estimated that the city was founded in the Hellenistic Era like the other cities in the Lycus Valley. The city had a role in bonding the cities in Lycus Valley to Aphrodisias in art and economy. Ancient sources state that there was a statue of a God called Men mounted on a horse in a temple which was built in his honor. It′s also written in ancient sources that statues of Zeus, Apollon, Dionysos, Asklepios and the cult of Artemis Anaitis are also in Attuda.

Viminacium was the capital of the Roman province of Moesia Superior. The remains are located on territories of the villages of Stari Kostolac and Drmno (Serbia), about 12 km from the town of Kostolac and about 90 miles southeast of Belgrade. Viminacium was one of the most important Roman cities and military camps in the period from 1st to 4th centuries. Its exceptional strategic importance was reflected both in the defense of the northern border of the Roman empire and in turn of communications and commercial transactions. The first legion attested at Viminacium was the VII Claudia that came from Dalmatia in 52 AD. Emperor Trajan (98-117) was headquartered here during the Dacian Wars. It became a colonia with minting privilege in October 239 AD during the rule of Gordian III (238-244) and housed the Legion VII and Legion IV. At its peak it is believed to have had 40,000 inhabitants, making it one of the biggest cities of that time. It lies on the Roman road Via Militaris. Viminacium was devastated by Huns in the 5th century, but was later rebuilt by Justinian. It was completely destroyed with the arrival of Slavs in the 6th century. Viminacium holds a distinction of having the largest number of graves discovered in any Roman archaeological site. Until 2018, about 15,000 graves have been discovered.

Herennius Etruscus was Roman emperor in 251, ruling jointly with his father Decius. He was born in Pannonia round 227 AD. His father, Trajanus Decius, was proclaimed emperor by his troops in September 249, while leading troops in Pannonia and Moesia, in opposition to Emperor Philip the Arab. Herennius Etruscus was elevated to caesar in 250, then further raised to augustus in May 251. When the Goths, under Cniva, invaded the Danubian provinces, Herennius Etruscus was sent with a vanguard, followed by the main body of Roman troops, led by Decius. They ambushed Cniva at the Battle of Nicopolis, routing him. Herennius Etruscus was killed in the Battle of Abritus, alongside his father.

Gaius Valens Messius Quintus Hostilianus was born round 236-238, the youngest of two sons of Trajan Decius and Herennia Etruscilla. Life for Hostilian was brief and tragic. His is one of the most difficult reigns for historians to reconstruct due to the poor evidence of the period and the great many changes that occurred in the political scenario. As the youngest son of Trajan Decius, perhaps only just beginning his ′teen′ years, Hostilian remained in Rome with his mother when his father and older brother departed for the Danube, never to return. During the course of his father′s absence, Hostilian was hailed Caesar. This may have occurred as early as 250 when his brother Herennius Etruscus was still Caesar, or more likely it occurred when his brother was raised to the rank of Augustus after the initial defeat of the Goths in the spring of 251. In either case, when his father and brother died in battle in the summer of 251 Hostilian and his mother were still safely residing in Rome. The new emperor, Trebonianus Gallus, soon journeyed to Rome where he was confirmed by the Senate and honoured Hostilian and his mother by sparing them of harm. The widowed empress seemingly retained her title of Augusta, and young Hostilian was actually raised from Caesar to Augustus, a title he shared with his new ′adoptive father′ Gallus. This was no minor act, for Gallus’ son Volusian (who apparently was older than Hostilian) was given the junior rank of Caesar. As honourable as Gallus′ overture was, it mattered little, for within a few months Hostilian died of the plague that was then ravaging the capital.

Aurii from Hostilianus are all very rare to extremely rare. The type we see most is with Hostilianus holding a standard and vertical spear. A wonderful example of that coin was sold  at NAC (auction 51, lot. 384, SFR 80.000 + 16,5%) and also in other sales. This type with Hostilianus holding a baton and transverse spear is much more rare, certainly with the variety VALES instead of VALENS. Only a few examples are known from this type, missing in most important collections. Therefor a coin of the highest rarity.

Under Trebonianus Gallus the fineness of the antoninianus is generally around 35%, whilst the weight normally varies between 3 and 5 grams. Trebonianus Gallus′s coins of Antioch have a number of distinguishing features. First, they include the abbreviation P F (Pius Felix) in the obverse inscription. Second, they include a series of dots or Roman numerals to designate the officina in which they were struck and these are present both on the obverse (below the bust) and on the reverse (in the exergue).
Because of the threath of the Persians the mint of Antiochia was moved to Emesa in 253 AD and  Antiochia was captured and sacked by the Persians in 256 AD.

IVNO MARTIALIS

Coins bearing the reverse inscriptions IVNO MARTIALIS or its dative form, IVNONI MARTIALI, appear only during the brief reigns of Trebonianus Gallus and his son, Volusian. The meaning of the epithet Martialis has been a subject of scholarly debate. As Joe Sermarini notes at Numiswiki, the title literally means ′of or belonging to Mars′ or ′warlike,′ but the depictions of Juno Martialis on the coins are not warlike. The epithet may refer to Juno as the mother of Mars. Or perhaps she is Juno of March - her festival was on 7 March. Perhaps the title refers to her temple in the Campus Martius, the old ′Field of Mars′ down by the Tiber. She is sometimes equated with Juno Perusina, as Perugia was where Trebonianus Gallus came from, and as such is sometimes called Juno Martialis Perusina by modern scholars.

Alexandria Troas was an ancient Greek city situated on the Aegean Sea near the northern tip of Turkey′s western coast, a little south of Tenedos (modern Bozcaada). It is located southeast of modern Dalyan, a village in the Ezine district of Çanakkale Province. According to Strabo, this site was first called Sigeia. Around 306 BC Antigonus refounded the city as the much-expanded Antigonia Troas by settling the people of five other towns in Sigeia, including the once influential city of Neandreia. It did not receive its name until its name was changed by Lysimachus to Alexandria Troas, in 301 BC, in memory of Alexander III of Macedon.

As the chief port of north-west Asia Minor, the place prospered greatly in Roman times, becoming a "free and autonomous city" as early as 188 BC, and the existing remains sufficiently attest its former importance. In its heyday the city may have had a population of about 100.000. Strabo mentions that a Roman colony was created at the location in the reign of Augustus, named Colonia Alexandria Augusta Troas (called simply Troas during this period). In Roman times, it was a significant port for travelling between Anatolia and Europe. Paul of Tarsus sailed for Europe for the first time from Alexandria Troas and returned there from Europe (it was there that the episode of the raising of Eutychus later occurred). Ignatius of Antioch also paused at this city before continuing to his martyrdom at Rome. Among the few structures remaining today are a ruined bath, an odeon, a theatre, gymnasium complex and a recently uncovered stadion.The circuit of the old walls can still be traced.

The old Cilician city of Anazarbus was founded by the Assyrians and situated on the main stream of the Pyramus river (present Ceyhan River). The original name of the place was Kyinda and afterwards Diocaesarea. In 19 BC the city was refounded by the Romans and visited by emperor Augustus. It got the name Anazarbus or Caesarea ad Anazarbus. Where the name Anazarbus comes from is not really known. The city developed prosporous and became one of the most important en biggest cities in eastern Anatolia. On the division of Cilicia it became the chief place of the Roman province of Cilicia Secunda, with the title of Metropolis. During the reign of Justinianus I (527-565) the city was destroyed by a heavy earthquake, but the city was rebuilt and renamed Justinianopolis. Again the city was detroyed by an earthquake during the reign of Justinus II (565-578). Again the city was rebuilt, and now renamed Justinopolis. But the old name persisted, and when Thoros I, king of Lesser Armenia, made it his capital early in the 12th century, it was known as Anazarva. The Mamluk Empire of Egypt finally destroyed the city in 1374. Nowadays still remain a mass of ruins of this once important city; a fine triumphal arch, the colonnades of two streets, a gymnasium, a stadium and a theatre lie outside the walls to the south, the remains of the acropolis fortifications, the remains of three aqueducts and a necropolis.

IMP AEMILIANVS PIVS FEL AVG
rev. Virtus standing left, holding laurel-branch and spear VIRTVS AVGG

Marcus Aemilius Aemilianus was born round 207 AD at Girba (modern Djerba, an island off the coast of Tunisia) in the Roman province of Africa. He was a Moor. Aemilian married Cornelia Supera, a woman of African origin; the year of their marriage is unknown, but since both were from the same place, it is possible they married before Aemilian left Africa. During the reign of Trebonianus Gallus and his son Volusianus (251–253), Aemilian was sent to the Balkans to command an army. His primary responsibility was to assure peace along the Danube frontier, which had been subject to several attacks by the Goths led by king Cniva. Because Trebonianus Gallus signed humiliating treaties in 251 with the Goths, he was not popular with the army. Because of this Aemilian was already envious of Gallus and plotted treachery against him. In 253, the Goths, led by king Cniva, claimed they had not received the tribute due from the Romans according to the treaty of 251. They crossed the border and attacked Cappadocia, Pessinus, and Ephesus. Aemilian had command of the army assigned to defend the area, but the recent defeat at the Battle of Abrittus put his troops on edge. Aemilian exhorted them, reminding them of Roman honor and promising tribute from the Goths. The Romans took the Goths by surprise, killing most of them, followed by an invasion of Goth territory resulting in booty and the liberation of prisoners. The Roman soldiers, gathered by Aemilian, acclaimed him Emperor. He then moved quickly to Italy, where he defeated Emperor Trebonianus Gallus at the Battle of Interamna Nahars (a town in Umbria at the Via Flaminia) in August 253. Trebonianus Gallus and his son Volusianus were murdered by their own gards. Aemilian continued towards Rome. The Roman senate, after a short opposition, decided to recognize him as emperor. Aemilian received the titles of Pius, Felix and Pater Patriae, the tribunicia potestas, and was elevated to the rank of pontifex maximus. However, Valerian, governor of the Rhine provinces, was on his way south with an army. Emperor Aemilian′s men, fearful of a civil war and Valerian′s larger force, mutinied. They killed Aemilian at Spoletium or at the Sanguinarium bridge, between Oriculum and Narnia (halfway between Spoletium and Rome), and recognized Valerian as the new emperor. After Aemilian′s death, which happened probably mid-October, a damnatio memoriae (condemnation of memory) against him was declared. Aemilianus had been Roman Emperor for less then three months.

For a long time it was believed that Antiochia was captured and sacked in 253 AD by Shapur of Persia. For that reason it was believed that no minting occurred at the mint of Antiochia in 253 AD. This coin indicates that this idea should be considered as to be not be true. The metal and style obvious indicates that it was minted in Antiochia, and that the mint of Antiochia still was active in July/August 253 AD. As this coin is the only known specimen from the mint of Antiochia for Aemilianus, the production however must have been very limited. Probably it was minted shortly before the mint was moved to Emesa.The type with Virtus on the reverse is known for Aemilianus from the Rome mint (Cohen 60 ; RIC 12). That Virtus however has his right foot on a helmet and the legend is VIRTVS AVG. This coin shows us a Virtus with his both feet placed on the ground and with the legend VIRTVS AVGG. The double GG in AVGG could indicate that there were two emperors in power, Trebonianus Gallus and usurpator Aemilianus, at the time the coin was struck, so probably in July/August 253 AD.

We know from studies (from Alföldi) that the mint of Antiochia was moved to Emesa in 253 AD, but not for the reason that it was captured and sacked by the Persians. The reason probably was that Antiochia was only threathened to be attacked by the Persians. From a letter of Dionysios of Alexandria addressed to Pope Stephan I (12 may 254 AD - 2 August 257 AD), preserved by Eusebius, we know that at that time Demetrianus was active in Antioch as bishop. This could never be the case if the city was taken by the Persians in 253 AD, who would certainly carry the bishop into captivity. It is likely to believe that the mint of Antiochia was moved to Emesa in August/September 253 AD, and it was re-established in Antiochia in 254 AD, when coins were minted there in name of Valerianus I. We know that the city of Dura-Europos was captured by the Persians in 256 AD, and it it much more likely that Antiochia was taken shortly after, in that same year or the year after.

Formerly this cointype was attributed to the mint of Milan (RIC) and Viminacium (MIR). There is however no base for these attributions. Therefor the mint of Rome is most likely. MIR listed only 1 specimen of this cointype with the legend IMP VALERIANVS P AVG. This piece with the legend IMP VALERIANVS AVG is unpublished.

Formerly this cointype was attributed to the mint of Antiochia. However, Antiochia was active until about 255 AD when it was succeeded by another mint in the East, most likely also in Syria. Robert Göbl (MIR) identified the issuing mint as Samosata, a city on the river Euphrates in Mesopotamia, the site of which (Samsat in Adiyaman Province, Turkey) today lies under a reservoir. Like Antioch, Samosata played an important role for ancient traders travelling the Eastern trade routes to Damascus and the oasis kingdom of Palmyra. Samosata probably operated as a mint between 255-258, possibly replacing the mint at Antioch which was plundered several times in this period. A field-mint may also have been active during the course of Valerian′s eastern campaigns.

rev. Carpentum drawn by two mules right, AΠHMH - EΦE, CIΩN in exergue

On this coin we see the word AΠEMH;  Apêmê (or Apênê) is an old Greek word for a wagon. On the coins of Ephesus the Apêmê or ″Sacred Apêmê″ is often represented obviously some car of antique form used to carry sacred things. It is four-wheeled and has a rounded cover like the modern Turkish araba; the driver sits within the cover (as in the modern Anatolian conveyance); it is hung with wreaths and is drawn (so far as coins show) by a pair of mules. Interesting coin and very rare.

At the turn of the first century AD, cities in the Greek-speaking part of the Mediterranean began to build temples and to establish cults and priests of Roman emperors and members of their families. By the late first century, cities with a provincial imperial cult temple became known as neokoroi (′temple wardens′). The three major cities of Asia, Ephesos, Smyrna and Pergamon, eventually obtained more than one neokoria. The Ephesians presented Artemis as the main protector of the imperial family in connection with their attempts to obtain imperial neokoriai.
