Hadrian Dupondius Rome


Hadrian. AD 117-138. Dupondius (27mm, 13.68 g, 7h). Rome mint. Struck circa AD 120-122. IMP CAESAR TRAIANVS HADRIANVS AVG P M TR P COS III, radiate head right, with drapery on shoulder / SALVS P VBLIVA, Salus standing left, with right foot on globe, holding patera in right hand and rudder over left shoulder. RIC II 604a. VF, brown patina. Ex CNG Salus (Latin: salus, "safety", "salvation", "welfare") was a Roman goddess. She was the goddess of safety and well-being (welfare, health and prosperity) of both the individual and the state. While Salus often holds a patera (shallow dish) with which to feed her snake, rarely, as in this case, she holds a rudder. This indicates her role in guiding the emperor through a healthy life
