Friends and Enemies of Rome

Our exhibit focuses on the relationships that Rome had with other empires and leaders. Throughout these times the massive empire had quite the list of friends and enemies. Rome's allies or “friends” would become allies of Rome after they were defeated by the large empire. The enemies of Rome dared to stand against the Roman Empire and were grudgingly respected by the Romans. The extensive history of war and conquering empires is deep-seated in the roots of Rome. In this exhibit we focus on coins that were embossed with friends and enemies of the Roman Empire. We dig deep into finding their place and influence on the Roman Empire throughout its time as the most powerful empire in the world.
