Coin in honor of the victories in Britain
Coin to honor victories in Britain

Golden aureus minted between 46-47 CE during the reign of Emperor Claudius. The coin was created in honour of the first victories of the Romans in Britain. This is evidenced by the visible triumphal arch, an inscription referring to Britain, the silhouette of the horseman (perhaps Claudius himself) and a tropheum made of the opponent’s weapons.
