Augustus                                                                   
(27 BC-AD14) The first Roman Emperor, Augustus (at first known as Octavian) was adopted by his great Uncle Julius Caesar as his son and heir.  At the time of Caesar's assassination, Augustus was visiting Illiricum.  He quickly returned, but only managed to obtain his rights as heir after a brief but bitter struggle with Mark Antony.  Later they patched up their differences, and together with Lepidus, formed a Triumverate and set about wreaking vengeance on the murderers of Julius Caesar.  Together they defeated Brutus and Cassius at Philippi, and Lucius at Perusia, and after defeating the navy of Sextus Pompey, they found there was nobody left to fight but themselves.  Antony humiliated his wife (Octavian's sister) by his dalliance in Egypt with Cleopatra, and this was all the excuse that Octavian needed.  He declared war on his erstwhile partner, and smashed him in the naval battle of Actium.

AE As struck in Cordoba in Spain.   The coin has taken some wear but has recognisable portrait.

Augustus                                                                     
(Shortly after the suicide of M.Antony, Lepidus gave up most of his powers to Augustus, leaving him in sole command of the Roman world.  The Empire expanded steadily, but in 9AD, in possibly the only setback of his reign, the entire Roman Army in Germany under Publius Varus, was annihilated by the Cherusci under their famous leader Arminus.  This loss was a terrible shock to the old Emperor, who is said to have cried out in anguish "Varus, Varus, give me back my legions!"  His reign is also noted for improvements to his capitol, indeed it is often said of Augustus that he had "found Rome of brick and left it marble".  He died at Nola in AD 14 at the age of 77. 

Silver denarius struck between 25 and 23 BC at Emerita (Merida) in Spain.  The reverse depicts a trophy on a heap of Celtiber arms. S1628.  Not in great condition but a rare coin

Trajan                                                                       
(98-117 AD) Trajan was a welcome relief to the people of Rome at the end of a century that had seen more than it's fair share of cruel tyrants assume the purple.  A genuine military hero, Trajan was adopted as heir to the throne by Nerva, and became sole ruler of the Roman Empire at the age of 45. He refused to pay the annual tribute to Dacia that had been exacted from Domitian, and then defeated them in battle, so adding Daccia (Hungary, Transylvania etc) to his empire.  He set about making new roads and repairing the old ones at his own expense.  He also built a stone bridge over the Danube, a feat hitherto thought impossible.  He died in Cilicea on his way home from a successful campaign in the East.   Silver denarius of Trajan, the reverse depicting Spes advancing, holding flower and raising her skirt.
