Historical background


DIVA FAUSTINA

(175) Annia Galeria Faustina

Consecration of Marcus Aurelius

Young Faustina died in 175 Halala the foot of Mount Taurus, exhausted, aged about 45 years, after giving thirteen children to the emperor. She was immediately deified. A coinage of consecration was struck to restore his memory, but less important than his father, Antoninus Pius, had hit his mother or mother Faustina Old after 141.
