The Dii Consentes were twelve major deities in the pantheon of Ancient Rome, six gods and six goddesses, represented by twelve gilt statues in the Forum. Livy* arranges them in six male-female pairs: Jupiter-Juno, Neptune-Minerva, Mars-Venus, Apollo-Diana, Vulcan-Vesta and Mercury-Ceres. Most of the Dii Consentes are amply represented on coins of Rome and make for an interesting subcollection. Let’s see your examples of any of these gods and goddesses! *The Founding of the City XXII.10.9 JUPITER: Licinius I, AD 308-324. Roman billon follis, 3.43 g, 19.1 mm, 11 h.
