BURT MACKLIN: STARLORD.
(Somebody stop me. Or don’t. This is fun.)
This ancient Roman coin depicts Aurelian, who was Roman Emperor from 270 to 275. Born in humble circumstances, he rose through the military ranks to become emperor. During his reign, his many military successes were instrumental in ending the Roman Empire’s Crisis of the Third Century, earning him the title Restitutor Orbis or ‘Restorer of the World’.
Aurelian strengthened the position of the Sun god Sol Invictus as the main divinity of the Roman pantheon. His intention was to give to all the peoples of the Empire, civilian or soldiers, easterners or westerners, a single god they could believe in without betraying their own gods.
The top image is just the coin; the bottom includes the text, “Aurelian 270-275 AD / Restitutor Orbis”. Bitch YEAH Restorer of the World!

Oh God. I’m in Calabasas and have to get home to Playa del Rey under LAX. I can see it now…a 50 minute drive will turn into three hours of stop and go, in 90 degree heat, with no air conditioning in my car. I’m not going to make it. I’m going to die on the 405.
Or maybe i’ll just take Malibu Canyon to the PCH…at least then i’ll have a pretty view.
