What does this reverse scene not have in it? I often think I should keep these photos of the best scenes and frame them for a hallway but I never do.

Rev. CONSERV VRB SVAE, Roma seated left on shield in tetrastyle temple,

Not sure what it's missing, but it's a beautiful example.

They certainly managed to squeeze a lot of imagery into such a small area.

Travelcoin;

You probably realized already but I was being facetious as there was just so much going on in the scene. (On another note "facetious" has every vowel in alphabetical order and I have looked for others but spent a life not finding a word to match this accomplishment!)

Echizento and Bob:

On another note, you see a lot of Globes being handed to emperors on these coins. I don't think they meant this as the world, and a prize urn or trophy or wreath is not what is being handed off. So what is a globe to these people to be given by Gods to emperors? Just a neat shape?

Wow, so in a lot of respects it is the earth. Guess it was not much of a deep question at all.
