Seleukeia (AD 198-217) AE 28 - Caracalla13 viewsCaracalla, 198-217 AD. AE28 (14.37g, 6h). Laureate head right / Infant Zeus seated facing on throne, head left, raising right hand; around him, three Curetes, each wearing military outfit, striking shields with swords. VF, dark green, almost black, patina.

The Curetes share some of the attributes of the Corybantes, dancing divinities associated with the worship of Cybele, but their specific role in Greek mythology was to serve as the protectors of the infant Zeus while he was hidden away on Crete, safe from his murderous father Cronus. Their militant dancing, accompanied by the clashing of swords on shields, drowned out the cries of the infant.
