Faustina I and II

Barbara M. Levick

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses the challenge of reconstructing the history behind a pair of the more prominent women in Roman times, the Faustinas I and II. Many of the facts relating to their lives are often cross-referenced from the evidence of their husbands and sons. By far the best sources of information on these Roman empresses are the imperial coinage, which contains dates, images, and even references to historical events, all of which can be used to corroborate literary evidence.

Keywords:   women in Roman times, history, imperial coinage, literary evidence, Roman empresses
