The aureus as a denomination dates back only to the time of Sulla in 80 BC and had historically been infrequently issued and rare. Worth one hundred sestertii, the aureus represented a very large sum of money, and its use during the Republic and Imperatorial period was primarily for military purposes, struck by traveling mints under the authority of the field commander. 
It would not be until Augustus’ coinage reform in 23 BC that the aureus would come into standard, consistent use. In addition to his reorganization of the state and institutions of Rome, Augustus introduced a formal system of fixed ratios between denominations of coins.

The obverse style shows a portrait with significant aesthetic sensitivity compared to his other depictions. It has been speculated that this was a deliberate attempt to assimilate his features with those of the beautiful god Apollo, whom he had adopted as his patron.

The inscription on the reverse of this coin puts it among his war coinage, minted for the payment of his troops during the Actian campaign. It reads “CAESAR DIVI F”, proclaiming Octavian as the “Son of the Divine Julius”, having been adopted by Caesar as his son and made his heir by his will.

The reverse promises peace not only from Octavian’s victory at Actium, but also from the annexation of Galatia and the subjugation of Spain. As this aureus predicts, his reign did indeed give Rome a “golden era” known as the “Pax Romana” (Roman Peace) during which he served for 41 years.

This coin has been a part of many of the iconic collections of the last two centuries and published in reference guides, including the Biaggi Collection, Jameson, "Julius Caesar and His Legacy", "Ancient Coin Collecting" by Wayne Sales, "Gold Coins of the World", and "The History and Coinage of the Roman Republic". #colosseocollection #ancientcoin #ancientcoins #ancient #ancienthistory #antiquity #coincollecting #coincollection #collecting #coincollector #coinsofinstagram #ancientart #art #ancientartifacts #numismatics #numismatic #numismatica #numismatik #luxury #investment #investing #artphotography #photography #history #romanhistory #rome #romancoin #archaeology #pedigree #classicalart

🔥 LA GRAN INVASIÓN CELTA DE GRECIA 🔥

La llamada invasión celta de los Balcanes fue una migración de varios pueblos celtas desde Europa Central hacia los Balcanes, la misma tuvo lugar entre los años 281 y 279 a. C. En esta migración los celtas (también llamados galos o gálatas) cruzaron Iliria y Macedonia, llegando a la Grecia central, pero al ser derrotados cambiaron de rumbo y se establecieron en Asia Menor.

Newgrange is unbelievable. Do you know how old this monument is? If not read on! Newgrange is a Stone Age (Neolithic) monument in the Boyne Valley, County Meath, it is the jewel in the crown of Ireland's Ancient East. Newgrange was constructed about 5,200 years ago (3,200 B.C.) which makes it older than Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids of Giza. .

This week, we play some of the Classics: a look at Troy, the Trojan War, and its discovery. Enter Heinrich Schliemann, the archaeologist (nope) who excavated the site of Hisarlik, in present-day Turkey, found evidence of the end of the Iliad (nope), went on to excavate other Homeric heroes (again, nope), and completely changed the game for public interest in archaeological research and the possibility that Homer was based on historical events (actually, this one is true). Come for Amber attempting to recite the Aeneid, stay for Anna throwing books in disgust.

Mayapan is a Pre-Columbian Maya site a couple of kilometers south of the town of Telchaquillo in Municipality of Tecoh, approximately 40 km south-east of Mérida and 100 km west of Chichen Itza; in the state of Yucatán, Mexico. Mayapan was the political and cultural capital of the Maya in the Yucatán Peninsula during the Late Post-Classic period from the 1220s until the 1440s. Estimates of the total city population are 15,000–17,000 persons, and the site has more than 4,000 structures within the city walls, and additional dwellings outside.⁣
⁣
The site has been professionally surveyed and excavated by archeological teams, beginning in 1939; five years of work was done by a team in the 1950s, and additional studies were done in the 1990s. Since 2000, a collaborative Mexican-United States team has been conducting excavations and recovery at the site, which continue.⁣

I’ll confess that I know little about ancient history, but the ingenue of our ancestors of long ago, and the intellect of historians and architects who piece together information about previous civilisations are incredibly admirable. Pictured is Namer, born 3150BCE, the first King of Egypt and is able to boast of a peaceful unification of a country, at the beginning of the First Dynastic Period. Historical evidence was able to lay this unification to his efforts, as the theory that it was a different king called Menes, who united the country in the First Dynastic Period through conquest, was disputed. We now can understand that Narmer and Menes were actually the same person- Narmer was his real name, and Menes an honorific. Not that Narmer would have anticipated the high interest contemporary historians, such as acclaimed Egyptologist Flinders Petrie, would take in him, but imagine having your conquests attributed to a figure who nobody knew was, in actuality, you! •••

Credit to from @valleyofthepharaohs (@get_regrann) -  Dressed for Eternity.

This is the mummy of Ahmose Inhapy. She was a princess and later a queen of Egypt around 1550 BC. She has been extremely well preserved.

She was buried with a garland of flowers around her neck, her arms were laid out to her side and her skin was sprinkled with aromatic powdered wood.

When she was unwrapped in 1886 by Gaston Maspero, he inadvertently created a macabre masterpiece. Her hundreds of layers, once sprawled out, became a dress fit for a queen.

Beautiful in life. Beautiful in death.

Puente romano de Alcantara

Es uno de los puentes romanos más importantes que quedan en pie hoy en dia y se considera una obra de ingeniería de la Hispania romana. El puente fue construido entre los años 103 y 104 dC por el arquitecto romano Cayo Julio Lacer (en tiempos  del emperador Trajano al que fue dedicado). Cruza el río  Tajo. Tiene 71 metros de altura, 194 de longitud y 8 de ancho  con 6 arcos de medio punto, sostenido por 5 pilares que arrancan a distintos niveles.

El arco del triunfo fue levantado en honor al sistema imperial romano.  En tiempos de Carlos V se añaden las almenas superiores y su escudo. 
Durante siglos el puente ha sido testigo de diferentes enfrentamientos bélicos, la Reconquista, la Guerra de Sucesion en el siglo XVIII, Guerra de Independencia siglo XIX y las guerras carlistas.

Karnak Temple
 A fictional figure illustrating what the Karnak Temple looked like during the celebration of an ancient Egyptian feast called the "Opet Feast". Karnak Temple is located in Luxor Governorate, on the eastern mainland of the River Nile, and is characterized by great magnitude, it is the largest ancient Egyptian temples, and is called the group of temples Karnak, because it is not a single temple, as it contains a number of small temples.
 Karnak was not built during the reign of a single king, but most of the kings from the modern state participated in its construction, and after them also came in the late state and the Ptolemaic era .. #thisisus #ancientegyptians #ancienthistory #egyptianantiques #romans #thisisegypt #traveling #tourism #karnaktemple  #luxor #egyptiantombs #southegypt #archeology #thisisegypt🇪🇬 #egyptainkings #opetfestival  #egyptianqueens #egyptiankings #valleyofthekings #valleyofthequeens #egyptianfestival

Hera's Glory, The Bastard Son
-----
A little trivia for you, did you know that Heracles (Hercules) had his name changed as a child? The name he was given at birth was Alcides.
-----
Hercules was born a twin, his mothering being tricked into bed by Zeus and then going to bed with her husband the day after resulting in her carrying Heracles and his brother, one a product of an immortal and the other a man.

Hera, hating this bastard son of Zeus, sent two snakes to attack the babies as they slept in their bed, but this didn't go to plan. Heracles strangled these snakes to death. Bad ass baby! 
Needless to say Heracles's parents became worried and sought out the advice of the blind prophet Tiresias.
------
Tiresias told them that the snakes were the work of Hera and that Alcides's name should be changed to Heracles (Hera - cles), cles meaning pride or glory so the name translates to Hera's Glory. This was a desperate attempt to gain favour with Hera. They were told by Tiresias that Heracles would go on to do great things and they'd hoped that if he did it in Hera's name she would leave him alone. Oh how wrong they were...
-----
TRIVIA :- Athena & Hermes brought Heracles to suckle from Hera while she slept, Heracles suckled so vigorously she awoke in pain and pushed the baby from her. Milk shot out from her breast and spread across the sky imprinting it with stars, this would later be known as the milky way.
The milky way is a galaxy & the word galaxy is derived from a Greek word gala, meaning milk.

Hera's Glory, The Bastard Son
-----
A little trivia for you, did you know that Heracles (Hercules) had his name changed as a child? The name he was given at birth was Alcides.

I've always been incredibly passionate about history and finances. Studying both is something I've put off for some time. One quick trip to the library fixed that. I'll have all of these read and mostly memorized by next week and on my way to get my second haul. If 2019 has taught me anything it's been that putting aside your passions for the comfort of someone else hurts no one but you. Walk with your own fucking tribe.

Italian canals might bring Venice to mind, but did you know about Bologna's 60km of waterways? 💧
▫
Many buildings have been constructed over time, obscuring them, however they were once important for the silk industry and cottage industries - powered by its waters 👗
▫
Even more hidden from sight underground are Roman aqueducts, mill runs and cisterns 🏛
▫
Next time I'm in town I'll definitely  book a tour to better uncover these hidden historical gems! 💎

The most ancient bread of the world
•
P H O T O | @borsamediterraneaturismoarcheologico
•
The most ancient bread ever found, of about 14.000 years, has been discovered by a group of researchers of the University of Copenhagen, the University of Cambridge and the University College of London at Shubayqa 1, in Jordan’s Black Desert in the North-East of the country.
It is a loaf of charred unleavened bread. Therefore, our ancestors kneaded and cooked before the Neolithic Age and before the advent of agriculture, 4.000 years later.
According to the scholars, thanks to the consumption of bread the populations started to grow the plants necessary to cook it, contributing to the agricultural revolution of the Neolithic Age.
The loaf is prepared with wild cereals: the ancestors of modern cereals like barley, spelt, oat, that have been ground, sifted and kneaded before cooking them.
According to the researchers, it was produced by a population of mostly sedentary hunter-gatherers called Natufians and, because of the difficulties to prepare bread, considered a luxurious food for important events.

The Bardo National Museum was originally the palace of the Beys of Tunis, monarchs of Tunisia from 1705, when the Husainid dynasty acceded to the throne, until 1957, when monarchy was abolished.  Several of the rooms are very ornate and artistic in among themselves, with intricate tile mosaics.

Vé, or vi, as we write it in Swedish today, still occurs frequently in place names in Sweden today. Most people never reflect on the fact that these places tell stories from well over a thousand years ago. The places ending in -vi or -ve are usually located somewhere with a view. The interesting thing is that these place names are found as far up north as Leksand (Ullvi, meaning the holy place of the god Ullr) to Öland in the south (Karlevi). There is Torsvi (the holy place of the god Thor), Frösvi (the holy place of the god Freyr) and Locknevi (the holy place of an ancient fertility goddess). The place names ending in this manner, and there are quite a few, are among the oldest place names we have in Sweden 💕

Хаттуса - столица империи хеттов, одной из величайших держав древнего Востока, сравнимой с Вавилоном или Египтом. Город просто огромен, а его укрепления поражают своей мощью. Представьте себе, этим стенам около 3.5 тысяч лет! А какие виды открываются с самой высокой точки города - ворот со сфинксами (у которых Олег в роли троянского агента 😀 к слову, легендарная Троя исторически была вассалом империи Хеттов)!..

Statue of a young, armed King  Amenemhat III.

This sculpture of Pharaoh emanates strength, youth, and humanity.  The body is powerful and dynamic, yet the soft modeling of the muscles contributes to the overall impression of youth that emanates from this work. A dagger is tucked into the belt of the kilt. Weapons of this type came from the east. The profile of a falcon, used as a decorative motif on the pommel, is unique in royal representations from this period.  During his long reign, Amenemhat III continued the reforms begun by his father, Sesotris III.  He reinforced the exploitation and control over the resources in regions near Egypt (Sinai, Lower Nubia), and completed major construction work at Faiyum with the creation of locks, dams, and canals as part of a regular irrigation program for this immense agricultural area. His funerary complex, which adjoins the Hawara pyramid in the Faiyum province, so impressed the Greeks that they described it as a labyrinth: "... It is truly beyond description. If we were to add up the constructions and buildings produced by the Greeks, they would appear inferior to this labyrinth in terms of work and in terms of cost..." (Herodotus's History). Middle Kingdom 
12th Dynasty 
c.a. 1860-1814 B.C.

Made my way north up the Croatian coastline to the seaside town of Split! One of the most scenic drives one will ever do. Great day out exploring the old town. Lots of history here which dates back to the 4th century 🇭🇷😎

🇾🇪 La cara que normalmente vemos de Egipto es la de las famosas pirámides, sus templos milenarios y demás maravillas de la antigüedad.

.
Esto se palpa cuando uno pasea por cualquiera de sus ciudades, con una infraestructura turística ahora sobredimensionada tras la caída en picado del turismo por el terrorismo y la revolución de 2011.

Painted grave stele of Hediste | from Dimitrias, Thessaly | Hellenistic period, 3rd-2nd c. BC | Athanasakio Archaeological Museum of Volos | Thessaly | Greece
——
“The Fates unfolded sorrowful thread from their spindle for Hediste, when newly-wed faced the pains of childbirth. Miserable, because it was not to embrace her child neither to moisten her infant's lips with her breasts. As soon as the baby saw the light of the sun, the Fortune fell on these two, with cruelty, and drew them in one tomb, both mother and child.”
==================
Γραπτή επιτύμβια στήλη της Ηδίστης | Δημητριάς, Θεσσαλία | Ελληνιστική εποχή, 3ος-2ος αι. π.Χ.
“Λυπηρό νήμα ξετύλιξαν από τα αδράχτια τους οι Μοίρες για την Ηδίστη, όταν νεόνυμφη αντιμετώπισε τις ωδίνες του τοκετού. Δυστυχισµένη, διότι δεν επρόκειτο να αγκαλιάσει το παιδί της ούτε να ποτίσει τα χείλη του βρέφους με τους μαστούς της. Μόλις αυτό είδε το φως του ήλιου, η Τύχη επέπεσε με σκληρότητα σ' αυτούς τους δυο και έσυρε σε έναν τύµβο. µητέρα και παιδί.”

Head of Artemis | found in Lykosoura | 190-180 BC | National Archaeological Museum | Athens | Greece
——
“The goddess wears a wreath. The holes that can be seen at the ears and temples will have been used to attach metal jewellery. The eyes were inlaid. The torso and parts of the limbs of Artemis are kept in the Lykosoura Museum”
======================
Κεφαλή Αρτέμιδος. Η θεά φέρει στεφάνη. Στις οπές που διακρίνονται στα αυτιά και στους κροτάφους θα στερεώνονταν πρόσθετα μετάλλινα κοσμήματα. Τα μάτια ήταν ένθετα. Ο κορμός και τμήματα των άκρων της Αρτέμιδος φυλάσσονται στο Μουσείο της Λυκόσουρας.
