And the coin is quite silvery compared to most Alexandrian tets, especially later ones. (Note the cited disagreement on whether to call it "billon" or "AR.") My only other Roman Alexandrian coin issued prior to the Nerva-Antonine Dynasty is this tetradrachm issued by Nero, with the personification of Alexandria on the reverse.

Because the contrast between the number of Alexandrian coins issued by the Nerva-Antonines and the numbers issued before -- and even afterwards -- isn't present only in my collection; it's almost invevitable given the disparities in the numbers of different coins issued by the different emperors from Augustus to Diocletian. Here is a list I compiled, in order, of the ten Emperors/Empresses with the largest numbers of different coins of all denominations minted in Alexandria in their names (including Nomes coinage). The source is the numbers set forth for each person and for each denomination of that person in Emmett at pp. xxii-xxv; I have combined the numbers as Caesar and as Augustus where they are given for both. 1. Hadrian: 1,065 2. Antoninus Pius: 1,019 3. Trajan: 980 4. Marcus Aurelius: 546 5. Domitian; 289 6. Severus Alexander: 273 7. Faustina II: 233 8. Lucius Verus: 217 9. Commodus: 207 10. Diocletian: 176. The number for Claudius I is 86 (including only 9 different tetradrachms), and the number for Nero is 125. I don't think anyone who's collected Roman Alexandrian coins will be surprised by these numbers!
