I just got my very first sestertius, ever! I've wanted one of these chunky coins for quite a while, but prices just weren't within my poor-mans budget. However, I did manage to win this auction for just about $13, which I think is a deal-and-a-half for any sestertius, especially a thicc 34mm x 18.1g example. Gordian III is known to be, at age 13, the youngest Sole Emperor in Rome's history. Most of his statues and coins show an obviously young kid, such as the below: Some of his coins show a rather more mature-looking individual, who looks less like a kid and more like a late teen. Thus is the coin I now am happy to own, an issue from Viminacium! Obv: IMP GORDIANVS PIVS FEL AVG Rev: PMS C-OL VIM Diam: 34mm Weight: 18.1g Ref: AMNG 82, Martin 1'29'1 (I have no idea what any of the above means, that's just what Wildwinds shows) Please show off your big boys!
