Roman Coins In Rome!

Recommended Posts

So, a while ago I was lucky enough to go to Rome again! It was awesome, and I loved visiting some of the amazing sites. But here I thought I'd share 3 images I like (2 of coins in their natural habitat) and one comparison. 

We've got:
Commodus at the colosseum
Hadrian at his villa
Capitoline Wolf Statue And High Grade LRB Comparison 

If this is popular, I might post some more photos I took there! I have a lot more of the different sites, and I could also do some comparison ones too 


Share pictures taken with coins, coins linked to locations or sites, or simply some of the favourite ancient places you've visited!

Ok, here are some more pics from my visit, but I’ve got a fun little game! Can any of you guess where or what these are? Most are pretty easy to be honest, but hopefully it’ll still be fun. Beware though, some are from the same sort of place and one or two aren’t super famous I’d say...

I tried buying a coin in Rome, but all stores were so outrageously overpriced that I just decided to see the beautiful scenery and art instead 🙂

Lovely! Looks like you visited some awesome places - haha I remember those large body part statues outside the Capitoline museum, that was funny.

If your defaced number 6 was in a Greek museum, @AncientNumis you’d be correct in calling him Heracles.
