    Decent coin there Ripley. This is one of those emperors that you don't see for sale often, but he's not exactly rare either. I just showed a provincial of his from Antioch and here is the only other I have:

    Volusian AR Antoninianus
    OBV: IMP CAE C VIB VOLVSIANO AVG, radiate, draped and cuirassed bust right
    REV: CONCORDIA AVG G - Concordia seated left, holding patera and two cornucopiae
    Struck at Serdica, 251-253 AD
    3.4g, 20mm
    RIC 168 (Trebonianus Gallus)

    Yeah, he is not rare by any means. Aorta has him ranked 79th with 541 known examples of his coinage. :cool:
