Maybe may thoughts drifted that way because of proximity to Thanksgiving, but we doubtless have a lot to be thankful for. Nero. Denarius. 19-18 mm. 3.45 grams. RIC 60. BMC 90. ex @Terence Cheesman I wonder what Nero ate that we today would think was really wonderful? I don't think the Roman world had access to sugar like we do. Ice cream and candy are inexpensive to us. If we don't have them it is more likely to be dietary reasons than lack of access. Be happy you can experience fabulous tastes unknown to kings and emperors!
