9. An Aureus with Emperor Nero’s distinctive face and the inscription NERO CAESAR AVGVSTVS. The historiography has varied descriptions for Nero who ruled from 54–68. On the one hand he reduced corn prices and organised chariot races which made him popular in the public eye. On the other hand, according to Christian readings of the medieval times, he was a tyrant and murderer who crucifi ed Christians using the false pretence that they set fire to Rome. Nero was interested in art and sports but neglected state affairs. In June 64, after total loss of power he stabbed himself to death during the flight from his rival the new Emperor Galba.
