Antoninus Pius



Denomination:  Denarius                             

Date:  138 - 161 CE                         

Description


Titus Aurelius Fulvus Boionius Arrius Antoninus was born at Lanuviun in 86 CE. He adopted a senatorial career and was consul in 120 CE, later distinguishing himself as proconsul in asia. He was adopted by Hadrian as his heir on February 25, 138 CE.  During the emperor's last months, Antoninus was virtually  ruler, and his succession on July 10th was smooth.


The history of his reign is almost a blank in the records, owing to the tranquility and prosperity which the Roman world enjoyed under his patient, judicious and impartial rule.

 
He died at Lorium on March 7th, AD 161, and was succeeded by Marcus Aurelius who had been selected by Hadrian as the eventual heir to the throne. It is worthy to mention that the series of commemorative coins struck after his death was the largest since that of Augustus.
