Trajan - "Best Roman Princeps"
Trajan, or Marcus Ulpius Traianus, was Roman emperor from 98 to 117 AD. He is regarded as the first Roman emperor who came from one of the provinces of Rome. Historiography honours him as the best Roman princep. Under his reign, the Roman Empire had its greatest expansion. Emperor Trajan's deeds were also significant domestically. He strengthened the Roman Empire by extensive building and social measures. After Trajan's death his nephew Hadrian took over the rule.

Coins - a testimony of the past
For archaeologists and researchers in particular, coins are an important indicator of time. In Roman antiquity the mint masters were depicted on the Roman coins with names, honorary titles, offices and reign, so that for example a coin can be classified exactly to the year. In the republic these were the so-called mint masters, in the imperial period on the other hand the Roman emperors.
