At the beginning of October, I bid on and won a Titus As with SPES reverse. Though it's rough/gone-through-many-hands, it has a simple beauty about it... The flower, the gentle holding of hem. Titus as Caesar, AE As Struck by Vespasian in 77-78 AD, Lugdunum Mint Obverse: T CAES IMP AVG F TR P COS VI CENSOR, Head of Titus, laureate, right; globe at point of neck. Reverse: Spes standing, left holding flower in right and raising skirt with left (anepigraphic), S-C across field. References: RIC II (Vespasian) 1273 Size: 28mm, 8.7g Since then, I've seen a few other coins come up (or now I've just noticed them more), I've bid on most, and won some. I guess this deity reverse type is becoming a collecting sub-group in now into. The same time I got that Nero I cleaned, I also got this worn Aelius with - you guessed it - Spes reverse. Aelius as Caesar, AE As Struck by Hadrian in 137 AD, Rome Mint Obverse: L AELIVS CAESAR, Bust of Lucius Aelius Caesar, bare head right. Reverse: TR POT COS II, Spes, draped, advancing left, holding up flower in right hand and raising skirt with left, S-C across field. References: RIC II (Hadrian) 1067 Size: 26.5 mm, 9.23 g And just today, got this Trajan with Spes reverse. Trajan, AE As Struck 103-111 AD, Rome Mint Obverse: IMP CAES NERVAE TRAIANO AVG GER DAC P M TR P COS V P P, Bust of Trajan, laureate, draped on left shoulder, right. Reverse: S P Q R OPTIMO PRINCIPI, Spes, draped, advancing left, holding up flower in right hand and raising skirt with left, S-C across field. References: RIC II (Trajan) 519 Size: 27 mm, 10.8 g Spes, the goddess of hope, was used to share with the Roman populace the hope for the emperor to bring continued peace and prosperity to the empire.
