Lucius Verus From Pessinus in Galatia


Recommended Posts

  • Benefactor

I picked this one up recently fro my collection.  I love bronzes, and while I try to keep to sestertius size this one was too attractive to pass on.  Plus I was not even aware of the city (which I suppose is not unusual with provincials).  Much nicer and greener in hand than my bad photo shows (I'm still trying to learn my new camera setup).  Auction photo below that which includes a dust booger free of charge!

Lucius Verus, 161 - 169 AD

AE25, Galatia, Pessinus Mint, 11.19 grams

Obverse:  A K Λ OY CEBACTOC, Bare head of Lucius left.
