Divus Antoninus Pius (died AD 161) AR denarius struck under M. Aurelius and L. Verus, Rome, c. 161-162.
Obv: DIVVS ANTONINVS - bare head of Antoninus Pius to right
Rev: DIVO PIO - The column of Antoninus Pius: a tall column, on a base surrounded by a balustrade, surmounted by a statue of the deified emperor.
The Column of Antoninus Pius was made of a monolithic slab of red granite and had a decorated base of white marble. The broken column and the base were rediscovered in the 18th century, and there were soon plans to re-erect it, but the column was too damaged to do so: the base is on display in the Vatican.
