    Really nice group - I enjoyed the post. I agree the Julian II is excellent and I like the provincial Severus Alexander second.

    Really nice examples, I love the Julian II/ esp. since I am a "Taurus". Yours could handle that Kushan Bull "Nandi" in a fight;)

    Awesome! The reverse of that last coin is magnificent.
    I also purchased the similar types of your top two... Though not in as good of shape:

    Very interesting coins with probably intentionally leftover soil remains.
