Julia Paula or Tranquillina?


Recommended Posts

This 24x25mm coin of Caesarea is rather worn, but has a definitive female head. There appear to be only three females with Caesarean coins - Julia Domna, Julia Paula, and Tranquillina.

The head shape doesn't match Julia Domna, and it sure looks like Julia Paula, but could also be Tranquillina. What do you think?
