€45.00

(198-217)  The tyrant, who became ruler of the entire Roman world at the age of 10. It is said he "never ceased to perpetrate cruelties and to inflict oppressions". Silver denarius, the interesting reverse depicting the Dea Caelestis (The principal female deity of Carthage) riding on a lion which is leaping over a rock from which water is gushing.  The legend INDULGENTIA AVGG IN CARTH probably relates to a gift to Carthage by the Emperor, almost certainly connected with the supply of water.  Rome 211 AD.
