Haha!...i've been thinking lately that most of my coin are ho hum run of the mill average ancient coins with a popular and plentiful theme and reverse...when i saw this i thought of @Roman Collector, and @Ryro...Vestal Virgins + Julia with almost full length hair(one of my targets yet to attain, and i've missed some beauties)....

so, here it is an As that we'd know was minted during Caracalla's reign....

In a previous life I had one of them. Many years ago I swapped it for a Diana Lucifera Plautilla denarius with @arizonarobin
