    I was wondering if there were any other objects held by Roman emperors depicted on coinage that I have not put on this list. I could only find depictions of these ones throughout the forums and the internet. Thank you.

    • A scipio.
    • A spear.
    • A shield.
    • A rein.
    • A globe.
    • A statuette.
    • A roll.
    • A scepter.
    • A cross.
    • A mappa.
    • A parazonium.
    • A long cross.

    What is a scipio? Was that meant as a scepter?

    The best I know, Scipio was a famous Roman Gens.

    LOL, good. I was scratching my head if I REALLY missed the meaning. :) Thanks.
