Emperor Antoninus Pius Imperial Roman Coins

Antoninus Pius coinTitus Aurelius Fulvus Boionius Arrius Antoninus Pius born in 86 and ruled from 138 to 161. He was the second heir adopted by Hadrian but rose to power after the death of Hadrian of old age and the death of Hadrian’s first heir Lucius Aelius Caesar who was of poor health.

Before becoming emperor he was appointed as one of the four proconsuls to administer Italia and then a proconsul of Asia. His accession to emperor was based on the condition that he would adopt Marcus Annius Verus.

His first task as emperor was to convince the senate to grant divine honours to Hadrian which they had previously refused. During his reign there were no military conflicts that were considered serious but he was the first ruler who was able to deal with all issues without leaving Italy. In 161 he died of a fever and he was succeeded by the husband of his only surviving daughter.
