Vespasian - first emperor after the year of four emperors
Emperor Vespasian - with civil name Titus Flavius Vespasianus - ruled from June 69 to July 79 as Emperor of Rome. With his appointment as Principes he called himself Imperiator Caesar Vespanius Augustus. During his 10 years of rule he stabilized - with great skill and ingenuity - the country, which was once, under Emperor Nero, led into bankruptcy. His ideas were often bizarre. Among other things, he introduced a so-called latrine tax. In this context he coined the saying: "Money does not stink" (Pecunia non olet). Under Vespasian the country flourished. So the emperor had the Capitol rebuilt, built a temple of peace and commissioned the construction of the Colosseum. In June 76, Vespasian died of diarrhoea, a natural death - more sensibly. The Roman coin Vespasian offered in the shop is an unusually beautiful and high-quality processed piece. Made of solid cast brass, in an antique look, it lies in the hand in a valuable way. The front of the coin shows the portrait and the inscription: IMP CAES VESPAS AVG PMTRPPP GOS, the reverse a person and QOMA.
