Roman Denarius in Coin Bezel "Vindobona"
Coins in antiquity were more than just a simple means of payment. They also served as state propaganda, with which the respective emperor presented himself as a victorious commander, divinely legitimised leader or generous builder. Gods, mythological figures or allegorical representations also found their way onto the reverse of the coins. Abstract ideas such as peace, prosperity, fertility and victory were usually represented in the form of female personifications, such as the goddess of peace, Pax, or the goddess of fertility, Ceres.
Particularly valuable coins were the aurei made of gold, which, due to their high value, often did not circulate as everyday means of payment, but were kept separately as investments. Many aurei are therefore still preserved in very good condition with few signs of wear and tear.
In some cases, coins were also worn as pendants, and particularly beautiful specimens were mounted in elaborate, ornate bezels. One of the most outstanding pieces is a coin bezel from Vienna, the ancient Vindobona, in which an aureus with the portrait of the emperor Hadrian was fastened.
