The latest update to the my NGC Ancients Custom Set entitled "The Roman Empire" is that I finished and posted my Owner's Comments for my ancient bronze featuring the notorious Emperor Caligula.  

 

While I don't want to go into the entirety of my comments, I will provide here an intriguing except...

 

In addition to scandalous accounts still sensationalized in modern media, Caligula left behind a rich and interesting coinage.  This bronze is of particular interest, contemporaneous with Caligula’s metamorphosis into a monster, even if the extent of monstrosity is subject to historical interpretation.

 

Here is a link to the coin...

Mk123,

 

Thanks again for your kind comments.  Seeing responses like yours reminds me that my effort isn't just for my own satisfaction. I am also pleased to comment that, with the completion of my writeup on the Caligula bronze, this "Page" of the Roman Empire is now completed!
