Hadrian Æ sestertius. Rome, 134-138 AD. HADRIANVS AVG COS III P P, Laureate and draped bust of Hadrian right. / Hadrian bare-headed and in military dress standing right, holding spear and parazonium and resting foot on crocodile, S-C in fields. 27.23g, 34mm. RIC II 782, C. 1384 Two die matches: Double die match sold by Stacks & Bowers 2013 Reverse die match sold by Gadoury 2018 Here again is the portrait of Hadrian, which I think is a real gem: Anyone that has familiarity with the coins of Hadrian, I am wondering what the meaning or event was that occasioned the striking of this reverse type? I assume it has relation to Egypt given the crocodile, was it struck to celebrate Hadrian's visit to Egypt?
