In the presence of an ancient coin-- held and used by forgotten hands centuries ago-- the imagination sets out on a journey across time. We can picture the people through whose lives it passed, the splendid cities and towns of antiquity where it might have been spent, the rare or commonplace objects it might have bought. This superb imperial coin bears the portrait of Lucius Verus, co-emperor with Marcus Aurelius. Set in a frame of opulent simplicity, it evokes the glory of the roman world at its height. Like a ticket on a time machine, it takes us traveling on an endless voyage of discovery. - (FJ.3476)
