Although Nero is best remembered for his cruelties, the first years of his reign showed him capably directing a responsible, moderate government. Eventually Nero killed his half-brother, mother, aunt and tutors. Many noble families became victims of his murderous rage. Legend says he started the fire that burned 10 districts of Rome. Finally, not even the Praetorian Guard or his palace servants supported him, and he committed suicide. This gold Aureus was hand struck over 1,900 years ago so no two are exactly alike.
