Ancient Rome Denarius Vitellius and Children 69AD
Vitellius was Emperor of Rome for eight months, from 16 April to 22 December 69. Many coins were made with his likeness, and a Google search on 'Vitellius coins' produced lots of hits. Barbara asks about the coin with his children.
The children are of the second marriage of Vitellius, Vitellius Germanicus and Vitellia. Vitellius Germanicus, who had been raised by his father at the age of seven years in the rank of an imperial prince, was murdered in the year 70. Vitellia survived.
