    However, is was certainly the pediment that I wanted from this coin.

    Roman Imperial, Maxentius, BI Nummus, Aquileia, AD 307
    Obv: IMP C MAXENTIVS P F AVG, laureate head to right
    Rev: CONSERV VRB SVAE, Roma seated to left on shield within tetrastyle temple, handing globe to Maxentius and holding sceptre; seated captive between, Victories as acroteria, wolf and twins in pediment, AQS in exergue
    Ref: RIC VI 113

    acroteria : architectural roof sculptures (in this case the two victories with wreaths) above the pediment : triangular upper part of the front of a building in classical style, typically surmounting a portico of columns.

    Not sure my helmet was cool - but that Roma that @DonnaML shared already took the show.

    Same theme I suppose,
    Rabbathmoba Septime Sévère.jpg
    Arabia, Rabbathmoba, Septimius Severus. On the reverse PABBAΘMU-[BHNUN], cult-statue of Arsa/Ares on platform.
    The Moabite city of Rabbath Moab (The citadel of Moab), Rabbathmoba in Greek, worshiped a local god called Arsa (probably the Arab god Arsu) assimilated with the Greek Ares. The city was renamed Arsapolis, Areopolis in the 4th c. AD.
    It is now a small town called Rabba on the Kings Highway in Jordan, just south of the Wadi Hesa canyon.
