Mother Faustina received the title of augusta in 139 and is thus associated with counterfeiting. She died in 141, aged about forty years. Antonin makes immediately deify and will hit a major counterfeiting consecration, establishing the "puellae Faustinianæ" for young orphans or poor. Antonin will raise the temple of Faustina in the area of ​​the Temple of Peace (Regio IV). Just after the death of Faustina a sesterce representing his hearse was struck on the occasion of the dedication of the temple of the Divine Faustina in the Forum.
