    Marcus Aurelius' Rain Miracle and the Marcomannic Wars by Péter Kovács it was amazing avg rating — 1 rating — published   Thanks! There's a fairly recent book that explores the Rain Miracle (Marcus Aurelius' Rain Miracle and the Marcomannic Wars, Peter Kovács, ), but it's a little too pricey for me.A review of it does briefly mentions that the book contains a chapter on the RELIG AVG coins and that the author apparently makes a strong case that none of the coins can be linked to the Rain Miracle.

    The Column of Marcus Aurelius was constructed following the end of the emperor’s ‘Marcomannic Wars’ against the Germans and Sarmatians; although the exact date of its decree and completion are unknown, it has been suggested that the omission of Commodus – who took part in the military campaigns of his father only in the late s – from the frieze decoration suggests that it was. Gaius Vettius Sabinianus Julius Hospes (fl. 2nd century) was a Roman military officer and was born into the equestrian order, possibly in North Africa. He held the traditional series of military, administrative and judicial positions of steadily increasing responsibility which aspiring upper class Romans were expected to progress through, known as the cursus honorum.

      View attachment View attachment This one is a Roman Denarius featuring Marcus Aurelius and this one has Diocletian on it View attachment View attachment I don't know much about the coinage of ancient Rome yet, but I think that the dates of these coins are represented by the ruler depicted on them.   This bas relief from the arch of Marcus Aurelius depicts the emperor during the Marcomannic Wars against Germanic barbarians, – AD. Marcus is often depicted in the pose of giving clemency.
