This is my favourite AE coin - a brass as of Nero.   It's rarer than the RIC rating of S would indicate - OCRE has no examples and I saw none on acsearch (there's a coin listed as RIC 220 which appears twice, but it has a radiate head).

Ruler: Nero (Augustus)
Coin: Brass As
NERO CLAVDIVS CAESAR AVG GERMANIC - Laureate head right
GENIO AVGVSTI - Genius, his waist draped, standing half-left, sacrificing from patera over lighted altar with right hand, left hand holding cornucopiae

Mint: Rome (64 AD)
Wt./Size/Axis: 7.20g / - / 6h
Rarity: S

It was fate for you acquiring that beauty. A RIC 220 in auction number 220, what a lovely co-incidence

I hadn't noticed that until now! - it was lot no. 220 and in the December 2012 auction - the full listing got truncated.

ATB,
