Seller: legxfre (929) 99.3%, Location: Houston, Texas, Ships to: Americas, Europe, AU, Item: 152216752013 Roman Emperor Trajan seen as a beared Hercules on rare small semis quadrans coin with the club of Hercules on the back. These type coins were rarely even made with some believing they were actually made for the dole paid out to Romans during games etc. as they are only found around Rome and had little value. They were not a hoard coin so they are always ruff looking and if lost, not worth the time and effort that losing a denarius might be. Trajan actually rebuilt the Circus Maximus to hold 600,000 people and this might be considered a Herculean task just by itself and would make for a good time for the emperor (and helpers) to dole these tiny coins by their ten of thousands as the brass (orichalcum) would have glistened off the sunlight and been a spectacle unto itself. The forth picture shows a denarius next to the small brass coin for a size comparison. These were thrown out to the general public at the Gladiatorial games in the Coliseum and the Chariot (quadriga) games at the Circus Maximus. These types of coins are generally only found around the capital (Rome). Not from the USA ???
