    Commode HS.jpg This is my first sestertius. I was young at the time, and very excited to find this budget Roman coin with the emperor Commodus addressing the Praetorian Guard ! Even more excited when experts told me it did not look like a fake.

    Next : a coin with many people on the reverse.
