During his reign, Antoninus Pius paid particular attention to Britain, crushing a revolt in Northern Britain and pushing the Roman line further North of Hadrians Wall into the Lowlands of Scotland. Its perhaps for this reason that some of his coinage features a mournfully seated Britannia, so that the Romans could show off that they had conquered the ‘barbarians’ of Britain. It would be 1,500 years before Britannia was revived for use in the copper coinage of Charles II.
