This recently acquired gold coin (about A.D. 430–445) is rare because it features portraits of a Roman empress on both sides. She appears decked out in luxurious jewels on the obverse side and enthroned on the reverse. https://t.co/je74BzEftK

Among the oldest images in our "(un)expected families" exhibition are photographs of "hidden mothers" (1860s–70s), depicting infants in the laps of concealed adults—a trick to keep the children still during long portrait sittings and exposures. https://t.co/f8sDwBwXZl

The 2018 Color of the Year from @Pantone is Ultra Violet, but our textile and fashion curators point out that it’s very close to mauvine, the first synthetic dye discovered in 1856, found in this American dress from 1860! https://t.co/FFq8cHDADh
