15. An Aureus with a picture of Emperor Hadrian and the inscription HADRIANUS AVG COS III PP. (Hadrianus Augustus, Consul for the third time, Father of the mother country). Hadrian who reigned from 117 up until 138 was Trajans distant relative who adopted him on his deathbed and therefore appointed him as his successor. As a sober strategist Hadrian refrained from his predecessors’ expansion policy and rather devoted himself to consolidation and frontier defence. He also maintained an extensive construction program with his main focus in Athens and Rome. Thus the Villa Hadrian, the Pantheon and the Mausoleum, today’s Castle Sant’Angelo, originated in the capital city.
