AR Trajan Denarius 98-117 A.D. (3.1g) “Trajan’s column was the crowning glory of Trajan’s Forum, built with the spoils of the Dacian Wars, and the last and greatest of the Imperial Fora. Covered by a continuous frieze of the war’s events, the column was capped by a gilded heroic statue of the emperor, while an inscription on the base recounted the feat of engineering in the Forum’s construction. After Trajan’s death, the base became the repository for his ashes.” CNG website O: Laur.
