Commentary


Il revient à l’école anglaise et aux travaux de P. V. Hill, The dating and arrangement of the Undated Coins of Rome AD. 98-148, Londres 1970, d’avoir reclassé les différentes émissions de l’atelier de Rome, grâce à la théorie des cycles et d’avoir mis en lumière l’organisation de l’atelier de Rome qui travaille en officines et non pas en fonction du métal comme l’avaient décrit les numismates du XIXe siècle. Il faut bien restituer à Antonin césar ce monnayage qui était donné par P. V. Hill aux premières émissions d’Antonin Auguste. Ce denier est en fait beaucoup plus rare que ne le laissent envisager les ouvrages généraux.

Historical background


Antoninus Pius

(25/02/138-7/03/161) Titus Aurelius Fulvus Boionius Arrius Antoninus

Caesar (10/02-10/07/138)

Hadrian ill, after the death of Aelius January 1 138, must find a new Caesar. The climate of the early 138 is made by Mr. Yourcenar in "Memoirs of Hadrian". Hadrian adopts Antoninus, a distant relative of his family by women. On the other hand, requires Hadrian Antoninus to adopt jointly Marcus Aurelius, son of Annius Verus and Lucius Verus son of Aelius. Hadrian, who set aside his estate and his brother and the grand-son of the latter, can die peacefully July 10 138. Hadrian hated by the Senate denied apotheosis. It will pugnacity of Antoninus to do deify.
