    Very nice!

    The only thing similar in my collection is this Trebonianus Gallus antoninianus:

    Of course, my favorite depiction of an Emperor on horseback is on the reverse of the Constantius multiple aurei medallion (RIC Vol. VI, Treveri mint, No. 34) which is my CT avatar (my replica copy that is).

    A fun theme, emperors on horseback. There are quite a few out there.....
    This soldier prevents the emperor from falling off his horse :)

    Septimius Severus, denarius.
    Rome mint, 202 AD.
    RIC 248, RSC1.
    17 mm, 3.3 g.
    Obv. SEVERVS PIVS AVG, laureate head of Septimius Severus right.
    Rev. ADVENT AVGG, Septimius on horseback left with raised hand & spear; before him, soldier holding vexillum & restraining the horse by its bridle.

    The reverse type commemorates the return of the royal family to Rome after the second Eastern campaign.
