NERO CAESAR AVGVSTVS
An Aureus with Emperor Nero’s distinctive face and the inscription NERO CAESAR AVGVSTVS. The historiography has varied descriptions for Nero who ruled from 54–68. On the one hand, he reduced corn prices and organised chariot races which made him popular in the public eye. On the other hand, according to Christian readings of medieval times, he was a tyrant and murderer who crucified Christians using the false pretense that they set fire to Rome. Nero was interested in art and sports but neglected state affairs. In June 64, after total loss of power, he stabbed himself to death during the flight from his rival the new Emperor Galba.
