Abstract:

A new monetary legend, that of restitutor Vrbis, appeared under the joint reign of Septimius Severus and his sons Caracalla and Geta. This formula is to be found on several issues dating to the years AD 200-201, and again in 207. It was intended to convey the idea that the African emperor had restored order to the capital after the chaotic reign of Commodus. This restoration had double significance: Septimius Severus gave the impulse for numerous public works in order to restore ancient buildings and erect new monuments. He was also the emperor who restored Rome to the plenitude of its power and dominion. Septimius Severus associated his sons in this vast project, in particular the elder Caracalla. The legend restitutor Vrbis should be studied in the context of others which appeared during the same period: rector orbis, fundator, pacator orbis as well as propago imperii. This latter emphasised the continuity of power in the Seveřan family. The tendency to personalise imperial virtues, already noticeable from the reign of Hadrian, increased markedly in this period.

Title:

Hadrien et la Ve cohorte prétorienne / Fernando López Sánchez

Source:

Revue Belge de Numismatique 153 (2007) p. 61-72

Abstract:

The inscription Coh/V Pr (Cohors V Praetoria) may be read on a 'vexillum' on the reverse of sestertius nr 1391 in the BMC III catalogue.  This sestertius belongs to one of the galley series of Hadrian, and several reference works believe it was minted in Rome between the years 132-134 AD.  However, the praetorian character of the vessel, together with the image of Minerva on the prow of a ship, leads to think that the coin was minted to celebrate the establishment of the Roman 'pomerium' in Great Britain.  Sestertius nr 1391 (BMC III) celebrates the deeds of the fifth cohort of the Praetorian Guard under the command of Septicius Clarus, which enjoyed the privilege of accompanying Hadrian in Germany and Britain in 121 AD.
