- • Handmade 100% Made in Italy • Authentic Roman Silver Coin 2nd cent. AD • Band material: Sterling Silver 925
An authentic Roman coin from the 2nd century AD has been set in this sterling silver pendant, which depicts Emperor Trajan; on the reverse side of the coin we can see the personification of Arabia, with a branch in one hand and a bundle of canes in the other. A small camel lies at his feet. Trajan (18 September 53 – 8 August 117) was Roman emperor from 98 to 117. Officially declared by the Senate optimus princeps ("best ruler"), Trajan is remembered as a successful soldier-emperor who presided over the greatest military expansion in Roman history, leading the empire to attain its maximum territorial extent by the time of his death. He is also known for his philanthropic rule, overseeing extensive public building programs and implementing social welfare policies, which earned him his enduring reputation as the second of the Five Good Emperors who presided over an era of peace and prosperity in the Mediterranean world.
