Antoninus Pius Emperor of the Roman Empire from 138 to 161.
Titus Aelius Hadrianus Antoninus Augustus Pius was Roman Emperor from 138 to 161. He was one of the Five Good Emperors in the Nerva–Antonine dynasty and the Aurelii.

He acquired the name Pius after his accession to the throne, either because he compelled the Senate to deify his adoptive father Hadrian, or because he had saved senators sentenced to death by Hadrian in his later years.

He died of illness in 161 and was succeeded by his adopted sons Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus as co-emperors.

Laodicea ad Mare is modern day Latakia; the principal port city of Syria, and has been inhabited since the second millennium B.C. It was on the Via Maris, a coastal road that ran south from Antioch to Damascus and Beirut. The city was renamed by Seleucus I Nicator in honor of his mother, Laodice and was a major port for the Seleukid Kingdom. Laodikea flourished under Rome and was second only to Antioch in the region. Herod the Great, king of Judaea, furnished Laodikea with an aqueduct, the remains of which stand to the east of the town. The Legio VI Ferrata was probably based in Laodicea Turreted busts such as this typically show a city goddess wearing a headdress incorporating a city gate with turrets, walls and a lighthouse (which can be clearly seen towards the left of this headdress, with it’s wide base and tall narrow top).

NAC AG dates specifically to 144 AD and has this to say "Note To the extent that coin types are a reflection of imperial interests, we can assume there was a concern for the health of the emperor early in 144, when this sestertius was issued. The concern appears to have been reduced by the year’s end, but still lingered in the years immediately following. The inscription SALVS AVG (‘the health of the emperor’) and the image of Salus, the goddess of health, feeding from a patera a snake that rises from the flaming altar, reflect vows made on behalf of Pius’ well-being. It perhaps is no coincidence that in this same year a significant coinage was issued for the emperor’s principal heir, Marcus Aurelius, who is celebrated as ‘Princeps Iuventutis,’ the leader of young men being trained in the arts of war and peace. This emphasis on dynasty is reinforced in this year’s coinage with the celebration of Antoninus Pius and Marcus Aurelius having been designated as the consuls of 145."
