    I think you meant “You and me THREE.”

    I guess I did a good job of burying the lead. Here's my take:
    RPC 10735

    My Turkish is pretty rusty, but it appears to be the same as #54 from this paper:
    Lucilla, wife of Lucius Verus, Pamphylia, Aspendus, c. 163-169, perhaps later, AE, (4.48g 19mm)
    Obv: ΛοVΚΙΛΛΑ ϹƐΒΑϹΤΗ, draped bust of Lucilla, right, border of dots
    Rev: ΑϹΠƐΝΔΙⲰΝ, two statues of Aphroditai Kastnietides in double aedicula, border of dots

    Why didn't I see this one!?
    I checked over RPC (thanks for this amazing resource, btw) and I was fixated on that one, seemingly ridiculously, identified as Fulvia, and that Maesa:confused:
    I LOVE Lucilla! How neat:smuggrin:
    And Aphrodite with a bunch of boobs... yes please :D
    What a fun find. The dies even look similar:artist:
    Thanks a TON @Sulla80!:singing::)

    Bingo!! Well done @Sulla80!

    That paper also has the Naumann coin in it, attributed to Plautilla. Her name was Fulvia Plautilla.

    Is see that RPC doesn't say "Aphrodite" or any variation as part of the reverse description. Instead it says "two veiled archaic cult statues." That's why I (we?) couldn't find it. I searched for Aspendus with "Aphr*" as the search string for the reverse description.

    Bravo @Sulla80!

    I was just totally thrown off by the whole boob/testicle thing... which I'm still seeing on Ryro's coin, btw. :bag:
