This object has the following keywords:
  • Animalia - Kingdom containing multicellular organisms having cells bound by a plasma membrane and organized into tissue and specialized tissue systems that permit them to either move about in search of food or to draw food toward themselves. Unable to make their own food within themselves, as photosynthetic plants do, they rely on consuming preformed food. They possess a nervous system with sensory and motor nerves, enabling them to receive environmental stimuli and to respond with specialized movements.
  • antoniniani - Designates Roman coins of the 3rd century CE distinguished by a radiate crown on the depiction of the emperor; originally of silver and probably a double denarius, later debased.
  • Imperial - Refers to the period in history and the style of art that developed when the Roman Republic ceased to exist and Rome expanded its territory and was ruled by emperors. The period is generally considered to begin with Octavian's victory at the Battle of Actium in 31 BCE, and to last through the rule of the Severans. For later emperors, see "Late Antique." For the period and culture of the Holy Roman Empire, use "Holy Roman Imperial." Note that some classifications include the Tetrarchic, Constantinian, and the Holy Roman Empire in the "Roman Empire."
  • silver - Pure metallic element having symbol Ag and atomic number 47; a malleable, ductile, white metal with characteristic sheen, considered a precious metal. Silver is widely distributed throughout the world, occurring rarely as metallic silver (in Peru, Norway) but more often as silver-gold alloys and silver ore. Today silver is obtained as a byproduct in the refinement of gold, lead, copper, or zinc ores. Silver was smelted from the ore galena as early as 3800 BCE. As a pure metal, silver is second to gold in malleability and ductility, can be polished to a highly reflective surface, and used -- typically in an alloy -- in jewelry, coinage, photography, mirrors, electrical contacts, and tableware.
  • terrestrial globes - Refers to spheres that bear a map of the Earth on their surface. They were first devised by the ancient Greeks, who had calculated that the Earth is a sphere. Modern terrestrial globes are typically mounted on an axle that permits rotation and is tilted 23.5 degrees from the vertical in order to simulate the inclination of the Earth relative to the plane in which it orbits the Sun.
  • trophies - Objects taken as spoils in war or in hunting, or awarded as prizes for victory in contests; typically include such things as armor and weapons taken from an opponent in battle, stuffed and mounted skins, heads or other portions of a slain animal, and elaborate silver pieces awarded as contest prizes. Distinct from "trophies (monuments)", which are monuments erected as permanent reminders of military victories, usually containing images of the spoils of battle,.
