Abstract

In November 1991, during archaeological research carried out over several years (1986-2004) in the Roman cemetery under the courtyards of the Milan campus of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, a gold pendant set with a gold coin of Saloninus was discovered. Exactly twenty years after the first publication of the artefact (Perassi 2003a; 2003b), this paper aims to bring the study of it up to date, taking into account the new and more in-depth knowledge of Roman coin jewellery, the figure of Gallienus’ young son, and the coinage in his name. The results of recent metallographic analyses of the coin, and the pendant’s ornamental elements, are also presented. Finally, the find from Milan is compared with other, limited evidence of coin jewellery found in Roman funerary contexts.
