    Julia Domna... Julia Mamaea... Julia Paula, etc. (Did I forget one?)

    This Julia Mamaea/Felicitas denarius was a recent acquisition from @Ken Dorney. So recent that it is not yet in hand.

    Nice to have another Imperial lady. Ceres on my Republican denarius was getting tired of being the only Roman female in my box.

    Post your Julias, or your Felicitas coins!

    (Felicitases? Felicitii? Eh. Whatever - you knowhutimean.)

    'Tis true, Julia Maesa was not the happiest looking individual portrayed on Roman coins. In that regard, she gives Galba a run for his money.

    I'm in the market for a Julia Soaemias. The other Severan ladies, Julia Aquilia Severa and Sallustia Orbiana, will have to wait. There are no coins of Annia Faustina as far as I know.
