Historical Notes:

Viminacium was an important Balkan city, the capital of the Roman province of Moesia Superior, in what is present-day Serbia. It possessed luxurious villas, large temples and baths, a 12000-seat amphitheatre, and the impressive military camp of the Legio VII Claudia. Provincial coinage was struck here from AD 239 to 255, featuring on the reverse the personification of Moesia standing between a lion and a bull, the symbols of the 7th and 4th Legions respectively.
