"Romulus and Remus” Ancient Roman Bronze Coin, 330-335 A.D.
There is nothing like the feeling you get when you hold an ancient coin in your hand and wonder about its storied past. Myth tells us that Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus, children of the god Mars and Rhea Silvia. After a power grab, they were abandoned to die in the Tiber river. Saved by miraculous interventions, they were eventually sheltered by a wolf. These legendary twin founders of Rome are portrayed on these bronze coins being suckled by the she-wolf who saved them. On the obverse is Roma in military helmet. Our Very Fine quality specimens show great detail.
