*****

Faustina I (also called Faustina The Elder) was the much loved wife of Antoninus Pius (Roman emperor from 138-161 CE) and the niece of emperor Hadrian. After her death in 141 CE Antoninus Pius issued a variety of coins in her name.

Consecratio, is a concept similar to the English consecration in which something is made sacred. In Roman religion it refers to the ritual act that created a aedes, or temple, that housed a cult image or altar of a deity.
