This is my third Sestertius of this type but the first one that will be a keeper as it combines a handsome portrait with a high relief obverse and clean surfaces. I can live with the scratch as it does not affect the bust and adds a little individuality to the coin.

She was married to sixteen year old emperor Severus Alexander at Rome on August 28, 225. The genuine affection the young couple had for a one another was more than the senior Augusta, Alexander´s jealous mother Julia Mamaea, was willing to tolerate, and Orbiana was banished to Libya a mere two years later.
