Benefactor Egry Posted May 30, 2022 · Benefactor Benefactor Share Posted May 30, 2022 For the past month I’ve been been on Reddit coin forums and haven’t frequented CT, only to come back and all the familiar names are gone… skimming through a few chats only to stumble across a few hints of what happened and some kinda sketch looking link of where everyone went. Anyway, I’d like to share my latest acquisition . In my opinion one of the nicest Lucius Verus denarius I’ve come across yet. Let me know if you agree and please share any of yours. ARI-145 Lucius Aurelius Verus, Roman Emperor of the Nerva-Antonine Dynasty from 161-169 AD, Silver Denarius (3.25g, 18mm), Rome mint 161 AD. Obverse: Bare head of Lucius Verus facing to the right, legend surrounds, “IMP L ΛVREL VERVS ΛVG”. Reverse: Providentia stands facing to the left, draped and holding cornucopia in left arm and globe in outstretched right hand, legend surrounds, “PROV DEOR TR P COS II”. RIC-463. Exceptionally sharp and choicely centred each side, lightly toned and visually powerful in hand, near Mint State, reverse good Extremely Fine. The Obverse Latin legend reads “Imperator Lūcius Aurēlius Vērus Augustus”, stating the majority of his regnal nomenclature as emperor. The Reverse Latin legend reads “Prōvidentia deōrum, Tribūnīciā Potestate, cōnsul secundum”, with an English translation of “Foresight of the Gods, holder of Tribunician power for the first time, Consul in his second term”. 38 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
