Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The contribution examines the monetary issues made during the principality of Nero starting from 63 AD in the mints of Rome and Lugdunum, on which appear depictions of buildings and monuments. In addition to the six architectural structures depicted in the open field (Macellum Augusti, Temple of Vesta, Temple of Janus, Arcus Neronis, Ara Pacis, Port of Ostia), are also examined the buildings that appear in the background of scenes with multiple characters and probable statue Nero assimilated to Apollo citharist. Monetary subjects are studied from an iconographic and ideological point of view. Compared to the vast building activity promoted by Nero in Rome, the monetary theme omits those buildings and those monuments too tied to the innovative aspects of "neronism", such as the Domus Aurea. The buildings and monuments depicted instead fall essentially into two themes of a strong ideological impact: food supply dell'Urbe and expansionist policy of Rome.
