Capotiline Wolf Bracelet Query

Recommended Posts

Well, the title and topic description say it all. When was the last dateable use of the Roman slogan SENATVS POPVLVSQVE ROMANVS? Like many things, did this cease after the third century, once the primacy of Rome in the Empire had diminished?


Hello .. I joined this site-just to ask if any of you know what year this bracelet souvenir would have been made http://www.rubylane.com/item/341589-JJS7072/Early-Roman-S-P-Q


Thank you ... I am from Australia

If the date on the bracelet was as it appears to claim to be 'AD DCCLIII' then it would have been made in AD 753.


I have serious reservations about this dating since it depicts the Capotiline Wolf with the suckling Romus and Remus beneath it which as discussed elsewhere on latest evidence was possibly cast no earlier than the 13th Century AD.


On the whole to me it doesn't 'taste' right and I wouldn't be suprised if expert analysis of the metals proved it was made no earlier than the late 19th or early 20th centuries.


Any other takers?
