This Aureus comes from the Boscoreale treasure, discovered in 1895 in a villa near Pompeii, a large part of which is currently on display in the Louvre! The deep purplish toning visible, particularly on the reverse, at the level of Salus' elbow, is characteristic of the coins from this extraordinary find. Our Aureus comes with a label indicating its provenance.
