Hadrian Alexandria Egypt

This coin was minted in Alexandia, Egypt under the emperor Hadrian. It may have been produced in opposition to the Bar Kochba revolt with Hadrian portrayed as the "son of the star." Perhaps it was in relation to the upcoming new solar cycle of the Egyptian religion. Rome integrated foreign gods into their religion. A source said Tiberius wanted to recognize Jesus Christ as a diety before the senate after the crucifixion but that Jesus would not tolerate other gods before Him. Photo from Shick Coins

2000 years ago the cross was a Roman symbol of death and terror. Jesus Christ transformed this symbol into a universal sign of God's love, hope and resurrection. Solar eclipse events are recorded in Roman mythology during the conception of Romulus and Remus by the war god Mars and during the foundation of the city of Rome. The solar eclipse to the Romans was a sign from their gods that war was upon the Earth. The solar eclipse symbol of the star/pellet within the crescent on Roman coins and legionary standards was also a sign of their god's approval of Roman domination over conquered lands. Fifteen hundred years later, the "Our Lady of Guadalupe" Icon was presented to the New World as an inverted Roman Legionary Standard. Jesus Christ changed these symbols of Roman domination and slavery into an everlasting sign of God's love and compassion.
