Believing himself to be a demi-god, Commodus positioned statues of himself portrayed as Hercules throughout the empire and renamed the city of Rome to be Commodiana. Roman legions became Commodianae, the Senate retitled the Commodian Fortunate Senate, and the months were renamed with Commodus' twelve names: Lucius, Aelius, Aurelius, Commodus, Augustus, Herculeus, Romanus, Exsuperatorius, Amazonius, Invictus, Felix, and Pius.Commodus' megalomaniac behavior led to his assassination in late AD 192, immediately followed by the restoration of Rome and its institutions by the Senate. This approximately 18 mm diameter Silver Denarius was struck in Rome during the reign of Commodus.
