Twelve Caesars Aureus Coin Pack
Quantity:  21.15

The Twelve Caesars, written by Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus (c.AD 71 - c.AD 135), is a set of biographies of Julius Caesar and the first eleven emperors of the Roman Empire. Material for The Twelve Caesars was gathered from the imperial archives and surviving eyewitnesses of the time, as well as his own experiences of life at court.

The work tells the tale of each Caesar's lives according to a set formula of descriptions; appearance, omens, family history, quotes and then a history, which are all given in a consistent order.

Julius Caesar was the first living Roman to have his portrait on the current coinage of the official mint. This was a sign both of his power and of the break with tradition. This practice was followed on by his successors.

The pack contains 12 Aurei from the first 12 emperors of the Roman Empire. The Emperors are Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellius, Vespasian, Titus and Domitian.

The spectacular Twelve Caesars coin pack contains 12 coins held in clear plastic blisters, and the coins obverse and reverse can be clearly seen. The full colour card show images of Roman coins on the front and back and has historical text on the reverse.
