COMMODUS 177AD Hercules First Labor Nemean Lion Marcianopolis Roman Coin i39744
i39744

Authentic Ancient Coin of: Commodus – Roman Emperor : 177-192 A.D.
Son of Marcus Aurelius
Bronze 18mm (3.35 grams) of Marcianopolis in Moesia Inferior
AVT KAI AYP KOMOOC, Laureate head right.
MAPKIANOOEITN, Hercules strangling the Nemean lion lion in his First Labor. * Numsimatic Note: Interpreting type as Commodus believed himself to be an incarnation of Hercules, and perhaps the meaning this coin was meant as a way to pay patronage to his megalomania and put out a famous reverse type. Other emperors also had this reverse, however, it seems most fitting that this coin would have this dual meaning.
