The people who first held this coin in their hands centuries ago lived in a turbulent but exciting age. Were they soldiers in the imperial army who backed Julian’s efforts to return Rome to her pagan roots? Wealthy citizens of Antioch who heard the emperor speak on philosophy? Courtiers? Camp followers? We can never know for certain through whose hands the coin has passed, but it links us directly with a heroic and romantic time. - (FJ.2590)
