No description yet
Ok, so for some reason this ruler, town, denomination or collection does not have a description yet - oops!
There are two possible explanations for this:

  • No description has been written yet
  • The property is incorrectly named

  • If the former, patience is key - this site covers thousands of entities, and all must have a manually created description written.

    If the latter, try renaming the property - 'Domitian as Caesar' has no description, but 'Domitian' does.

    The she-wolf, symbolic of Rome, depicted on this coin is not directly connected to the she-wolf that nursed Romulus and Remus. It was perhaps adopted as a symbol of Rome after the defeat of the rebel Italians who likened Rome to a predatory wolf. (Michael H. Crawford)
