Aureus was the fundamental gold currency of ancient Rome and the broader Roman world. Initially referred to as "nummus aureus" or "denarius aureus," it played a central role in Roman monetary systems. However, in Constantine's reforms in AD 312, the aureus was supplanted by the solidus, which became the primary monetary unit.

  • This piece is completely handmade with lost wax casting method. It’s the process where Hespérides take a hand-carved wax model and turn it into a finished piece in precious metal.

    Each piece is unique and might vary slightly from portrayed images.
