Product Description:

One of the twelve Caesars

Ref: RIC.6

Born in A.D. 9 at Falacrina, T. Flavius Vespasianus overcame humble beginnings to establish himself as a remarkable military leader. With his notable skills, he commanded troops during the British invasion under Claudius and was entrusted by Nero to quell the Jewish rebellion. In A.D. 69, Vespasian's imperial journey began when he was proclaimed emperor by the legions stationed in Alexandria. This pivotal moment was followed by a triumphant victory over Vitellius' forces at the Battle of Cremona, as the Danubian legions joined his cause and invaded Italy.

Arriving in Rome in A.D. 70, Vespasian swiftly embarked on the arduous task of reconstructing the city ravaged by years of civil unrest. Through his just and diligent rule, he implemented reforms that greatly improved the state of the empire. Vespasian's reign was marked by stability, prosperity, and noteworthy accomplishments in various aspects of governance.

Tragically, on June 24th, A.D. 79, Vespasian passed away in Reate, leaving behind a legacy of effective leadership. Recognizing his significant contributions, the Senate posthumously deified him, solidifying his place among the revered figures of Roman history.
