As you may already know that the ancient Greek and Roman gods of mythology were reflected in the night sky. When the ancients looked at the sky, they would point to constellations in the sky and would have an amazing story about each one of them. Some of the constellations included, Gemini, Ares Capricorn and the rest of the 12 Zodiac symbols. What is great about ancient coins is that they actually featured the mythological characters that had their counterpart in the sky, therefore in the Zodiac, Astrology and Astronomy. Some of the coins on the list feature characters as closely as I understand that they can relate to the Zodiac symbols, such as that of the Aquarius, Pisces and Virgo. Symbols such as the bull and the Capricorn were used as symbols on legionary standards.
