Antiocheia (AD 238-244) AE 34 - Gordian III122 viewsGordian III, 238-244 AD. AE34 (25.23g). IMP CAES M ANT GORDIANOVS AVG, laureate, draped and cuirassed bust of Gordian right / VIBI AVG COL ANTIOCH, Gordian on horseback trampling down and spearing enemy, SR in exergue.

On this series of coins, we see Gordian in a pompous privileged manner, most often hunting animals. A rare series show either one or two enemies lying on the ground already vanquished and dead. This rare example shows the enemy in the act of falling to the ground and death. The horse rears up to trample and Gordian has his spear at the ready to finish the job. The scene reminds one of the Fel Temp Reparatio series issued about 100 years later.

In expiation for his murder of Iphitus at Tiryns, Hercules was compelled by the Delphic oracle to serve Omphale, Queen of Lydia, for one year. During this time, he performed a number of labors, similar to those which he undertook while serving Eurystheus, including the capture of the Cercopes, the killing of the Syleus, and the conquest of the city of the Itones. At the same time, he was forced to wear women’s clothing and spin wool while, according to the poet Ovid (Fasti 2.305), Omphale wore Hercules’ lion’s skin and carried his club. However, these actions seemed to have little ill-effect on the hero; after his year’s service was completed, Hercules married Omphale.

Mithras, the central god of the syncretic Hellenistic mystery religion known as Mithraism, was of Persian origin. There, known as Mithra, he served as a mediator between the supreme god Ahura-Mazda and humankind. His attributes were varied, but he soon became associated as a divinity of light and much of the symbolism of the mystery cult that developed around him is cosmologic. The chief participants of the cult were the military, attracted to the masculine aspect of the god and his selfless sacrifice to duty.
