Antoninus Pius (86-161)             

Divus Antoninus Pius, AR Denarius, After 161, Rome


Bare head right, seen from behind, drapery on both sides of left shoulder


Four tiered ustrinum – the lowest most of which represents a plain podium with three large festoons, and the profile of a festoon at each end. The next tier forms the sepulchral chamber for the reception of the dead body. In the center is a pair of paneled folding doors, flanked by two niches on each side with statues and surmounted by a cornice. The tier above has two arch-headed niches with statues; and the upper forms a lofty plain attic with hanging drapery in front. A lit torch flanks each end of the upper tier, which forms a pedestal surmounted by the quadriga of the deceased, with his statue in the chariot. All the tiers diminish in width from the base upwards so as to assume a pyramidal form.
