This title was held for one year and is often followed by a numeral which indicates which term as Tribune the emperor was then serving. CONSUL - The consuls was the chief magistrates of the Roman government. This title is often followed by a numeral which indicates the number of times the emperor had held this position. SENATUS CONSULTUS - Usuailly appears on the reverse of bronze coins of the early empire.
The reason for this initial apprehension is that the ancient Romans were excessive abbreviators and that the legends were run together without stops or breaks.
