    I love the various images of Winged Victory and think this could be a great pile on thread. I picked up this Trajan at CNG last week for the reverse. Please join in.


    Trajan. AD 98-117. AR Denarius (19mm, 3.32 g, 6h). Rome mint. Struck AD 102. Laureate bust right, slight drapery / Victory standing right on prow, terminating in serpent, holding palm frond and wreath. RIC II 59; Woytek 123b; RSC 241a. VF, toned.

    From the Kallman Collection, purchased from Colosseum Coin Exchange.

    That's a very attractive Trajan! His denarii are not always so appealing. Nice score :)

    Victory appears holding trophy on reverse of this coin which was struck in Trier under Constantine the Great. The reverse reads "Sarmata Devicta", strange to me.
