Marcus Aurelius Valerius Maxentius, né vers 278, est le fils de Maximien Hercule et d’Eutropia. Face aux menaces sur l’Empire, un duumvirat est mis en place, avec Maximien Hercule chargé de seconder Dioclétien. Puis, en 293, dans le système de la tétrarchie, les Augustes Dioclétien et Maximien Hercule, associent deux généraux pour les seconder respectivement, avec interdiction de choisir un fils. Sont nommés Césars Constance Chlore et Galère. En 305, après 20 ans de services terminés par un fabuleux triomphe, les deux Augustes se retirent au profit des deux Césars et de nouveaux Césars sont désignés : Maximin Daïa et Sévère. En 306, à la mort de Constance Chlore, son fils Constantin Ier se fait proclamer empereur par les soldats de son père. Maxence fait de même et se donne les titres de Prince invincible et d’Auguste, régnant sur l’Italie et les provinces africaines. Maxence présente sa politique comme une réhabilitation de Rome, centre de l’Empire romain. Les dieux fondateurs sont favorisés tandis qu’une politique de constructions est entreprise, construction de la basilique de Maxence ou, pour notre exemplaire, restauration du Temple de Vénus et de Rome. Un temps allié de Constantin, symbolisé par le mariage de ce dernier avec sa propre sœur Fausta, Maxence contient ses adversaires mais son pouvoir s’affaiblit peu à peu. En 312, Constantin s’empare de l’Italie du nord et avance sur Rome où ses troupes l’emportent sur celles de Maxence qui périt dans sa fuite, en franchissant le Tibre au pont Milvius. Le Temple de Vénus et de Rome est le plus grand temple de la Rome antique, construit sous l’empereur Hadrien, entre 121 et 141, après avoir été inauguré en 135. Endommagé par un incendie en 307, il est restauré avec des modifications sous Maxence. La fin des travaux donna lieu à une cérémonie grandiose et à la frappe d’émissions commémoratives. Les deux chambres principales du Temple abritaient chacune une statue colossale, Vénus d’une part et Roma d’autre part, adossées dans le temple comme leurs noms, Vénus représentant l’Amour, ou AMOR et ROMA, épelé à l’envers. Notre représentation du revers n’est autre que cette statue colossale de Roma, qui fut miraculeusement épargnée par l’incendie

To challenge the threats to the Empire, a diarchy is set up with Maximian Herculius in charge assisted by Diocletian. In 293 it became a tetrarchy. Choosing one of their sons to rule was prohibited. Augustes Diocletian and Maximian Herculius appoint two generals to support them. Constance Chlore and Galerius were named Caesar. In 305, having served twenty years and after major victories, Constance Chloe and Galerius retired. Two new Caesars were appointed: Maximinus Daza and Valerius Severus. In 306 Constantius Chlorus died and his son Constantine I was proclaimed Emperor by his father's soldiers. Maxentius did the same, having granted himself the titles of invincible Prince and Augustus. He ruled Italy and the African provinces. Maxentius reestablished Rome as the center of the Empire. The founding gods are favored while is undertaken a building policy, for example the construction of the basilica of Maxentius or the restoration of the temple of Venus and Roma. Constantine I, married Fausta, sister of Emperor Maxentius and daughter of Emperor Maximian. Fausta contributed to her father’s downfall, he died in 310 as a consequence of an assignation plot against Constantine. Maxentius controlled his opponents but his power gradually weakened. In 312, Constantine I seized northern Italy and marched on Rome where his troops overwhelmed Maxentius. Maxentius was killed crossing the Tiber river at the Milvian Bridge. The Temple of Venus and Roma is the largest Temple in ancient Rome. It was built under Emperor Hadrian between 121 and 141. Inaugurated in 135, damaged by fire in 307, it was restored under Maxentius. When the work was completed, there was a grand celebration and a commemorative series of coins were minted. The two main rooms of the Temple each housed a colossal statue. Venus was in one room, Roma in the other. Venus represented Love, or AMOR and ROMA, spelled backwards. The depiction on the reverse of this coin is this colossal statue of Roma, which had been miraculously spared by the fire.
