Gallic Empire. OB: IMP C POSTVMVS P F AVG; Rx: PAX AVG; Pax standing left.
RSC IV 215; Van Meter 37.
Pax was the Roman goddess of peace, carried over from the Greek goddess Eirene. She was the daughter of Jupiter (Zeus) and Justitia (Themis), the goddess of justice and order. Although sources have conflicting dates, one of the dates listed is January 3 as being when the Festival of Pax was celebrated. Celebrated as Pax Romana and Pax Augusta, she was celebrated since the 2nd century BC.
Pax, herself, is portrayed on coins in several guises. Sometimes she is shown with an olive branch raised in one hand and holding a cornucopia in the other. Also, she might be shown leaning on a column. Other times she is setting fire to a pile of arms. Pax is also known as the goddess of security, holding a caduceus and grain stalk, or holding a scepter over a tripod.
