Hadrian (A.D. 117-138) was one of the most able and conscientious of Roman
Emperors. He spent his reign visiting the vast majority of his provinces.
Consolidating and strengthening the Empire’s defences after the expansion by his predecessor,
Trajan. The most famous example of his work was Hadrian’s Wall! Which
spread from the River Tyne in the East, to the River Solway in the West: at 73 miles
(117.5 kilometres) it is the largest Roman monument anywhere in the world!
Own a Roman bronze coin of Hadrian called an ‘As’. These are well circulated, I.E
Very Good grade, and at a very reasonable price. The coins have his portrait visible
but please don’t expect a lot more at this price.
