Description: AVG IN PACE or AUGUSTA IN PEACE is considered by many to be the first overtly Christian legend. In 261 the emperor Gallienus restored the rights of Christians and ended the persecution started by Trajan Decius in 250AD. His wife Salonina was reputed to be a Christian herself and the end of the persecution would have put her at peace. This legend was not used by any other emperor or empress
