General: Trajan was one of the greatest Roman Emperors. A former soldier and adopted heir to Nerva, he expanded the Roman Empire to its largest size in history. A philanthropist who invested in social welfare and public building programs, he is known as the second of the Five Good Emperors. This coin was struck at the Antioch mint in Syria, most likely after Trajan's acquisition of the title Optimus in circa 114 AD. The purpose of the pellets and numeral letters on the coins from Antioch must have served some purpose but what that purpose was exactly has been lost in time and remains today the subject of some speculation.
