On the reverses of these exquisite coins, each one different from the next, a host of roman ideals and virtues are displayed. These include Fides Publica, or confidence in the state; flying victory; pietas; the genius of the roman people sacrificing at an altar; a war galley; Spes, the goddess of hope; and Moneta, deity of the mint. Graceful in form yet conveying powerful messages, these personifications offer us a glimpse into classical Rome at her height. To wear this gorgeous bracelet is to link oneself with the unbroken chain of human history, and with the eternal dreams, passions and emotions that touch us all. - (FJ.3095)
