happy_collector Posted December 10, 2022 · Member Share Posted December 10, 2022 (edited) Happy Holidays! December is the “Top 10” season for many of us, and I am waiting for next week’s CNG and ROMA to finalize my own list. Before that happens, I would like to share 10 bronze coins I picked up this year. They all fit into my “Roman Empress” collecting theme. I am super happy to receive my 6 coins on various Roman empresses earlier today. I purchased them just last week from Aegean Numismatics. Instead of starting a post on a coin, I think it would be fun to type up my “Top 10 Roman Empresses in 2022” list instead. Here it is… You are most welcome to share any Roman empress coin you picked up this year. Thanks! Wishing you all a great Holidays season! 😃 # 10: Otacilla Severa. 244-249 AD.
