The stars on the veil which billows out behind Aeternitas' head are often poorly rendered by the die-engraver, and are typically nonexistent on the denarius, which led to some doubt as to the identity of the obverse figure on this denomination. However, on some examples of the coin, such as Zumbly's, the stars of the heavens appear on Aeternitas' midriff. On my examples, the stars are seen unequivocally only on the sestertius denomination. Coins of this reverse type were issued in the denarius, sestertius, and middle bronze denominations. Like all of Faustina's coins bearing the AETERNITAS reverse legend in conjunction with the DIVA FAVSTINA obverse inscription, they were part of a massive issue which commenced in AD 150 to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the empress' death in late (November?) AD 140. The iconography is clear in its allegory: the deified empress, Diva Faustina, resides for eternity in the celestial sphere. Post anything you feel is relevant! Faustina I, AD 138-141. Roman AR denarius, 3.26 g, 18.4 mm, 5 h. Rome, AD 150 and later. Obv: DIVA FAV-STINA, bare-headed and draped bust, right. Rev: AETERNITAS, Providentia standing left, holding globe and grasping veil which billows behind her. Refs: RIC 351; BMCRE 373-381; Cohen/RSC 32; Strack 447; RCV 4578; CRE 121. Faustina I, AD 138-141. Roman orichalcum sestertius, 26.49 g, 31.4 mm, 5 h. Rome, AD 150 and later. Obv: DIVA FAVSTINA, bare-headed and draped bust, right.

Roman copper alloy as or dupondius, 13.38 g, 27.2 mm, 5 h. Rome, AD 150 and later. Obv: DIVA FAVSTINA, bare-headed and draped bust, right.

Notes: Obverse die match to the British Museum specimen, a dupondius. ~~~ 1. Mattingly, in both RIC3 and BMCRE4, tentatively but mistakenly identifies the figure on the denarius version of the coin as Providentia, but correctly identifies the reverse figure as Aeternitas in his descriptions of the bronze denominations of the coin and in the introduction to BMCRE4. I have discussed this previously in this thread. 2. Mattingly, Harold, Coins of the Roman Empire in the British Museum, vol. IV: Antoninus Pius to Commodus. Introduction, indexes and plates. London, BMP, 1968, p. lxxxiii. 3. I have discussed this previously. 4. I have not encountered a specimen that could be unequivocally identified as an as. The specimens in the British Museum and the University of Göttingen collection are dupondii, as is the specimen in @thejewk's collection. The only example at acsearchinfo is identified as a dupondius by the auction firm. There are no examples of the coin at Wildwinds, CNG's archives, or The Coin Project with which to compare.
