Coins from Adoptive Emperors
Following the murder of Domitian, the elder statesman Nerva found himself crowned emperor. His brief reign - 96-98 AD - was marred by financial difficulties and the question of succession. Following a palace revolt in 97 AD, he was forced to adopt an heir - and chose the young and popular general Trajan.

This ensured a peaceful transition of power, and founded a dynasty of adopted emperors which would rule until Commodus' murder in 192 AD. This was a period of great stability and splendour, during which the Empire reached its peak land mass area and population - almost 70 million people. Includes the year of the five emperors (193 AD).

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).

The information with this coin from the Albert Reeves collection says that it was bought for £2 back in 1984 from S P Kitson who graded it as 'Poor'. We have nothing else to say about it except that we are asking the same price now as it was 34 years ago.

Marcus Aurelius as "Caesar" under Antoninus Pius

"The Decapolis (Greek: Δεκάπολις Dekápolis, Ten Cities) was a group of ten cities on the eastern frontier of the Roman Empire in the southeastern Levant. The cities were grouped together because of their language, culture, location, and political status, with each functioning as an autonomous city-state. Though sometimes described as a "league" of cities, it is now believed that they were never formally organized as a political unit. The Decapolis was a center of Greek and Roman culture in a region which was otherwise ancient Semitic-speaking peoples (Nabataeans, Arameans, and Judeans). In the time of the Emperor Trajan, the cities were placed into the provinces of Syria and Arabia Petraea; after a later reorganization several cities were placed in Syria Palaestina and later Palaestina Secunda. Most of the Decapolis region is located in modern-day Jordan, but Damascus is in Syria and Hippos and Scythopolis are in Israel."
