They conquered much of their known world and many powerful enemies in the process. At the height of their power, it seemed as though they were unstoppable and that their power would last for eternity. It comes as no surprise then, that eventually they would place the legends ROMAE AETERNAE on their coinage. These legends translate into "Eternal Rome" and these coins usually depict the Roman city goddess Roma with a Spear and a victory in her hand as well as a shield beside or beneath her. These icons were symbols of Roma's might. The spear represented the strength of the Roman army and the phalanx. The shield also representing this might, but also giving a sense that under Roman rule, one was safe. The victory of course representing its namesake in the victories over Rome's enemies. It is clear that the Romans thought their empire would last for eternity. Of course we today know that the Roman empire did not last for eternity, and that what remains is only a small shadow of its former glory. All is not lost, however. The coins they minted have preserved a snapshot of their memory. These coins bare the mark of their creators and reflect their lives, customs, and history in images and denominations. By preserving and collecting these coins, we are keeping their memory alive. Romae Aeternae Numismatics offers this history at prices affordable to most everyone. You too can own a piece of this history and memory of the Eternal Roman Empire! Here at Romae Aeternae Numismatics, we have chosen to include the depiction of Roma on our logo and seal of authenticity because we believe it represents Rome's most meaningful piece of Numismatic history.
