Isn't Matidia rather scarce as well? I do not recall having her in my old collection, and I believe I had over 100 different emperors and empresses, usurpers, etc.
Very scarce, especially in bronze. There are many more sales of Denarii and even Aurei than Sestertii. (Looks like usually only a couple of her Sestertii each year appear in major auctions, usually not this nice.)
I've got some Sabina's in bronze & silver, but definitely no Mitidia's!
A few of my Latin Ladies on Roman AE Sestertii from other reigns, all pretty common:
Otacilia AE Sestertii:
Julia Domna AE Sestertius:
Diva Faustina I AE Sestertius:
Julia Mamaea AE Sestertius:
Matidia Augusta divae Marcianae f(ilia) : "Matidia Augusta, daughter of the divine Marciana". She was Trajan's niece and Hadrian's mother in law. When Trajan's sister Ulpia Marciana died, c. 112-114, the senate declared her diva, and gave her daughter the title of Augusta.
Quite rare !
