    My first Denarius, from a lot of 34 "bronze" coins.
    Very worn but I was extremely glad that I have a Denarius and also from Trajan! Plus the coin was not worn enough to prevent attribution and the price for the entire lot was 100 EUR.

    2.8 g 18.3 mm
    RIC II Trajan 318 (denarius)
    Date A.D. 114
    Denomination Denarius
    Mint Rome
    Obverse IMP CAES NER TRAIANO OPTIMO AVG GER DAC: Bust of Trajan, laureate, draped, right
    Reverse P M TR P COS VI P P S P Q R FORT RED: Fortuna, draped, veiled, seated left on chair without back, holding rudder set on ground in right hand and cornucopiae in left

    Next - your first coin that you fought for in an auction

    Julia Mamaea was the MOTHER of a late Severan emperor, not the wife of one.

    But so many people have subsequently responded, that penalty is declined.


    Carry on ...

    wicked ruler - certainly. Whimsical reverse, in view of his alleged relationship with his sisters, I guess so.
