The prototype of a roman emperor 

Caligula, that means little boot, was the prototype of a roman emperor. Not for instance the prototype of how an emperor should be, but much more a prototype of how in future the world would see roman emperors from then on: Arrogant, megalomaniac, weak and pleasure-seeking. That is how his contemporaries described him at least. What of that is true and what invented, probably never can be cleared up. But that’s for sure: Caligula was and is one of the most famous Romans of all times. The buyer of that finely worked replica of a roman coin form the first century AD not only awaits a piece of history in his hands! It awaits him a massive brass casting, that not only feels valuable, but also is it.

  • ca. 3,6-6 mm thick
  • massive brass casting
  • front: profile left of emperor Nero Claudius Germanicus, inscription (NERO CLAUDIVS GERMANICVS IMP)
  • back: sitting person on the ‚sella curulis‘, inscription (CLAUDIVS CAESAR AVG PMTRPIMP - SC)

Who does not only want to own a pretty replica of a roman coin, but also at the same time an object for conversation, will be filled with enthusiasm by this piece.
