Historical background


FAUSTINE MOTHER

(141) Annia Galeria Faustina

Consecration of Antoninus Pius

Mother Faustina, daughter of Rupilia Faustina, the sister of Hadrian, Antoninus Pius married between 110 and 115 and had at least two children: Marcus Antonius Galerius, a boy who died in infancy and young Faustina who married Marcus Aurelius. 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.
