    Another one off the list!



    Plautilla. Augusta, AD 202-205. AR Denarius

    Struck under Septimius Severus and Caracalla, AD 202-203. O: Draped bust right R: Concordia standing left, holding patera and scepter. RIC IV 363a, Rome mint. 18 mm, 3.7 g.

    If you have trouble keeping track of the Roman ladies like I do, she was the wife of Caracalla. After their marriage, well... they certainly didn't live happily ever after. When this coin was struck she was just a kid really (about 14), about my youngest daughters age. Kind of makes sad really.

    Well, she looks nice on my new coin. Post your Plautilla coins!

    Very nice OP Plautilla denarius @chrsmat71
    For a long while, I've had a soft spot for her and was eventually able to put together the whole series of denarii struck in her name. Sadly, I've sold most of them since, but have kept the overview made of them

    Plautilla overview
    A virtual tray showing obverses and reverses of all the silver coins minted for Plautilla that I could find.
    Including 14 types of denarii from Rome featuring all the known variations of hairdo and reverses, 3 types of denarii from Laodicaea, and as a bonus, a drachm from Caesarea
