    And an acquisition from a little while ago, but I don't believe I have posted it before.

    This heavy piece refers to the safe return of the emperor after his first voyage through the empire, by saying a big thank you to Neptune.

    An as of Hadrian was the last denomination in bronze missing for this emperor in my collection. Our friend @Valentinian had an attractive example for sale in my price range (meaning cheap). So here it is. I would be curious to see another specimen like this one since they are hard to find.

    That's really a wonderfully engraved coin. Excellent style.

    The reverse is one of the best I've seen.
