    Highlight: EF 275 Rare type of "Womanly Fortune” that appears only here in the Roman coinage since teh type is the same as that of "Fortuna Redux," it was perhaps occasioned by Faustina’s decision to accompany Marcus Aurelius and Commodus to the East in their expedition against Avidius Cassius in 175 AD, during which she was in fact fated to die. The type in certainly late since the obverse shows the same coiffure that Faustina was to wear as Diva: see nos. 302-303 below. Denarius, Rome, 3.31 g. BM-100, C-1 1 1 . RX: HILARITAS.

    Highlight: inspired by Avidius Cassius in Syria, was ended by Cassius’ assassination in 175 A.D. His training as a child in stoic philosophy (which had evolved from its basic "Virtue for Nature’s Sake’’ axiom to also encompass intolerance of "outside” religious thought) caused him to oppose the spread of Christianity because of the Christians’ refusal to participate in the worship of the Roman Gods. Aurelius believed Christianity undermined his administration in contrast to the views of his father, whose tolerance of all religions was well known in the Empire. It was under Aurelius’ administration that the Christians were brought to the Circus Maximus in Rome to be used as bait for wild beasts and targets for gladiators for the amusement of Rome’s citizens. Aurelius’ thoughts on his life,

    Highlight: while to the brief record of the Bucolic Revolt and its suppression by Avidius Cassius (a.d. 172), Tanis con- tributes only the mute testimony of her ruins. The story of her fall, like the story of her foundation, must be sought at the edge of the spade. What we do know is that she died the death foretold by the prophet, and that it was death without resurrection. A few late Roman huts— the resort probably of herdsmen and fish- ers — are the only human habitations of subsequent date. The end of Pompeii was scarcely more sudden ; the abandon- ment of Palmyra was not more complete. Thenceforth the trade of the district cen- tred in Tennis, a new and thriving town situate between thirty and forty miles to the northeastward, near the mouth of the Tanitic Nile. Commanding the markets of the
