Ancient Roman Imperial Silver Coinage of HADRIAN Travel Series Issue. Hadrian’s Commemorative Travel Series Issue. This coin commemorates Hadrian’s visit to Africa. Hadrian, who succeeded his adoptive father Trajan to the throne upon the latters death in AD 117, had the luxury of ruling in the middle of what is now considered to be a golden age, when five so-called good emperors reigned. Hadrian was the most Hellenistic i. A devotee of Greek culture of all Roman Emperors, and this heavily influenced how he spent his regnal years. The relative lack of military action during Hadrians reign left him free to pursue other goals, notably the construction of many public works and extensive political tours throughout his Empire. Indeed, Hadrian spent far more time traveling the provinces than he did in Rome during the two decades of his rule. To commemorate his travels and spread valuable political propaganda, Hadrian issued coins with various reverse types related to these journeys. His first trip, which took him out of Rome from 121 to 125, included such destinations at Britannia (modern Great Britain), Hispania (modern Spain), and parts of North Africa. He also visited Athens, a place he would naturally wish to visit as a follower of Hellenistic culture, and a city to which he would return on future trips. The metropolis held a fascination for him, and he had been elected a citizen in 112, long before he became emperor. Obverse: HADRIANVS – AVG COS III P P Bare head right.
