I gotta share or I'll never get around to it later. Last things first; My butcher accidentally backed into the meat slicer and got a little behind in his work!... speaking of last things and behinds. I needed to get a proper Domna Venus reverse of her reverse. But had to give up centering, which I don't worry that much about so long as the most attractive and eye catching motifs are not missing, for possibly the greatest cheeks on the streets that I've ever seen Save maybe an Augustus that was up for auction a couple years ago that sold for the down payment on my house But if you think you've got better buns, we'd all love to see em Oh. And the portrait is a showstopper as well. Heck, might be my favorite Denarius Happy to share with you all my latest Domna win The auction house gave two different images. Though, I don't like that in both pics the lighting is on the back of her head and not on her face, I prefer this one slightly more for how much more detail I can see on the reverse. And the other image was the only one viewable on biddr (with the blurier posterior): Julia Domna Denarius . 193-196 AD . Rome . (Ric- 536 ). Ob .: IVLIA DOMNA AVG, Bust draped to the right . Rev .: VENERI VICTR, Venus standing to the right, leaning on a column, holding a palm and an apple . Ag . 3.18 g. Displaced. Tone . EBC . Tauler & Fau Jan 2021 (Excuse me! Her FEET are down there!) As nice as that is, what's much nicer than finding a misidentified rarity with Egyptian i-coin-ography? How about it being a stunning Julie Domna Sold as: "Denarius AR Julia Domna (193-218), Juno, Rome 209 AD 20 mm, 3,30 g RIC IV 559" One question. Where the Cloaca Maxima is Juno? Thanks AC search I quickly put two and two together and, BooM: Julia Domna (AD 193-217). AR denarius (20mm, 3.30 gm, 1h). VF, flan crack. Rome, AD 200-207. IVLIA-AVGVSTA, draped bust of Julia Domna right, seen from front, hair braided in waves and tucked in large chignon at back of head / SAECVLI F-ELICITAS, Isis, wearing peaked headdress, standing right, left foot on prow, holding the infant horus at her breast; to left, altar, against which rests a rudder. RIC IV.I (Septimius Severus) 577. Ex: Dr Elkowicz Jan 2021 "An issue of aurei, denarii and sesterces in the name of the Empress Julia Domna appears on the reverse Isis. The legend SAECVLI FELICITAS invites to consider this strike as the indication of a new era of prosperity thanks to the Severan family back from Egypt. Already attached to the Antonine dynasty by the will of Septimius Severus, Divi Marci filius since 194, it promises stability and order to the Empire." Ummm yeah How sweet was this find that was pennies compared to double bubble up there And by the way... So please share your Julia Domnas, posteriors on ancients, Isis or baby Horus on coins, thoughts and observations or any old thing that brings interest, fun and thought.
