To the Romans genius was the divine nature that is present in every individual person, place or thing. Genii were often viewed as protective spirits, although they were not as distinct as later guardian angels. An individuals pleasantness as well as his abilities were attributed to his genius.

This silver antonianianus was issued during the rule of Trajan Decius between 249-251 A.D. It features Genius standing holding a cup over an altar with a ears of grain in his hand. Grain signified plenty and independence, as a society that did not need to import food was less likely to be overrun.

Set in a sterling silver frame, the coin is about the size of a quarter. A great choice for either a man or woman, it comes on your choice of necklace. Comes complete with descriptive brochure and Certificate of Authenticity.
