Description
Perhaps no emperor evokes the image of Rome’s grandeur and decadence better than Nero. Much maligned by later historians, Nero was in fact a complex and talented individual, as full of whims and contradictions as any human being. Though he sat on the throne of Rome, his dearest ambition was to be a stage actor. He neither set fire to the city nor fiddled as it burned, but this is the impression that has survived through the ages. This is not to say that Nero was free from faults, but he clearly was not the corrupt villain history has painted him to be. Who among us is not open to misinterpretation? The individual who wears this stunning token from Nero’s reign will recognize that fact, and be unafraid to be a little different. - (FJ.3812)
