    I posted a thread about this coin recently, but Geta's beard on this sestertius is my favorite piece of imperial propaganda in my little collection. 2. Geta example edit.jpg

    Sasanian Drachm 568-628. I don't know the exact attribution, so if anyone happens to know feel free to enlighten me! Got it from a coin shop 25 years ago which is no longer around for a very modest price. One of my only ancients. His nose is even more impressive than his beard... Sasanian Drachm 568-628.jpeg
