The author, maintaining the same structure that has characterized the first volume, proposes the whole Nero’s lifetime through his monetary iconography. The text opens with a brief introduction, followed by the biography of the “August”, however seen in a new light: the intention is to rehabilitate, at least in part, the name of this emperor. Among the most interesting chapters we report:

• the portraits and descriptions of relatives and wives who accompanied him during his whole existence;

• some of the major architecture buildings that the emperor authorized the construction: the port of Ostia, the "Macellum Magnum", the Temple of Janus, etc; • some particular historical curiosities as the "Congiarium", the "Decursio" and the games called "Neronia";

• a series of impressive numismatic portraits dedicated to him, as well as a brief overview of the coinage of the Roman provinces.

• a legend that includes a brief method of reading an ancient Roman coin as well as a glossary with the meanings of the major imperial titles.

At the end, a glossary of the main numismatic terms and the meanings of the various imperial titles and a special insert of the the entire Julio-Claudian dynasty.
