Genuine ancient Roman silver coin of the Emperor Commodus, whose fondness for gladiatorial bouts is immortalized in the Academy-Award-winning film Gladiator.

When we think of ancient Rome, we think first of the gladiators. These professional fighters sent crowds into frenzy, doing battle with wild animals, with condemned criminals, and with one another, sometimes fighting to the death. The archetype of the gladiator has persisted for more than two thousand years, to the present day...

ROMAN EMPEROR VALERIAN I (AD 253-260)

Upon taking the throne, Valerian headed east, to take on the dreaded Persians and their nefarious ruler, Shapur I. He won Syrian territory until plague struck his army before the Battle of Edessa, which he lost to the Persians. He arranged a meeting with Shapur, to negotiate terms of a truce, but his rival violated the spirit of the meeting by taking him captive. He remained in the hands of the Persians from 260 until his death five years later. Va...

ROMAN EMPEROR TRAJAN (98-117 CE)

The reign of Trajan marks the zenith of Roman civilization. The borders were never as vast, the economy never as booming, the culture never as high. In an era of almost constant warfare, plague, and famine, it was a season of relative peace and prosperity within the empire’s borders. And those borders were indeed vast, encompassing most of Britannia, all of Gaul and Iberia, Eastern Europe to the Danube, all of Northern Africa, Greece, Anatolia, Mesopot...

This example of a very scarce bronze ½ centenionalis coin was one of small quantity that were minted for a brief period between 348 and 350 AD. It was issued in the names of Roman emperors Constans and Constantius II, both sons of Constantine The Great, to commemorate the 1100th anniversary celebration of the founding of the old city of Rome on April 21st, 348 AD. On the obverse is found the bust of the emperor, his name and abbreviated titles. The coin’s reverse shows the image of a Phoenix ...

Valens became the Eastern Roman Emperor in 364 CE. Although a fine administrator, Valens was not an effective military man, leading a series of unsuccessful campaigns against the Goths. In 378, at Hadrianopolis, he stubbornly refused to wait for reinforcements led by his nephew Gratian, hoping not to share the glory of victory. Instead, Valens’ attacking army was slaughtered, and he perished.

Gratian ascended to the throne of the Western Empire in 375 CE. An able military leader in his ...

ROMAN EMPEROR HADRIAN (AD 117-138) Born in Spain in 76 CE, Hadrian ascended to the throne upon the death of Trajan in 117. Part military man, part philosopher-king, the new emperor toured the length and breadth of his empire, establishing order, drilling troops, and engaging in battle, famously crushing a Jewish revolt in Palestine in 130. He is considered one of the Five Good Emperors. A devotee of ancient Greece, he pushed for Athens to be the cultural capital of the Empire, constructing ma...

ROMAN EMPEROR GALLIENUS (AD 253-268)

While this hard-nosed emperor, who assumed sole control of the empire after the death of his father, Valerian I, in 260, believed sincerely that he was a demigod come down to earth, he still managed to implement important reforms in the military. His decision to bar senators from serving as military commanders allowed more equestrians to fill those positions, encouraging a meritocracy that would continue when the seat of the empire moved from Rome to C...

In 70 CE, the Emperor Vespasian broke ground on what would become, and still remains, the world’s largest Amphitheatre. The Coliseum was completed by his successor Titus ten years later, and modified during the reign of Domitian (81-96 CE). Because those emperors were from the Flavius family, the arena was for centuries known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, with the name Coliseum coined around 1000 CE. The tallest and grandest structure in Rome, the amphitheater could hold some 87,000 spectato...

This is a beautiful, authentic Roman period single pendant earring made with solid gold. It dates from the 1st-3rd century AD. The pendant part is decorated with a green glass bead, a finely-crafted filigree gold tubular bead, and a lovely little pearl that still has most of its lustre nearly two thousand years after it left the sea. Pearls in the Roman period came from the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean; along with silk from China, they represented the height of fashion and extravagance.The earri...

This set highlights a pivotal moment in the history of Christianity: when the Virgin Mary is acknowledged not just as the mother of Jesus, but as the Mother of God.

Christianity did not wipe out pagan beliefs as much as it assimilated them into the new religion. Worship of various local gods and goddesses continued in modified form as veneration of the saints. And no saint was more venerated than Mary, the Virgin Mother of Jesus Christ. She represented the Female in an otherwise male-do...

Many are the tales of St. Valentine, the third-century priest martyred on February 14-what we now know as Valentine’s Day. Records from that period of Roman history, the so-called Age of Chaos, are spotty, but this is what has been handed down to us:

In the year 268 CE, Caesar Marcus Aurelius Claudius Augustus, known as Claudius Gothicus, assumed the Roman throne. Desperate for fresh army recruits, he decreed that young men remain unmarried; hoping that without the frivolous distraction ...

Roman emperor Constantine I, the Great, 307 -337 AD, is best known for being the first Christian Roman emperor. According to the Christian historian Eusebius, the turning point for Christianity’s rise in Rome is attributed to the Battle of the Milvian Bridge on Oct 28, 312 AD.

Hadrian’s adopted son and heir, Antoninus Pius was notable for one reason: his pacifism. Emperors of Rome tended to be brutal individuals, drawn from the ranks of the imperial army, and quick to take up arms.

He built the Antonine Wall, north of Hadrian’s Wall, to keep out the Picts.
