Just arrived, an Emperor new to my collection. 

Gaius Vibius Trebonianus Gallus. Sestertius, Rome, AD 251-252

IMP CAES C VIBIVS TREBONIANVS GALLVS AVG, laureate, draped bust right / PIETAS AVGG, S-C, Pietas standing facing before lit altar, raising both hands.
RIC 117a; Cohen 86; Sear 9676.

Dealers photo has washed the colours out, so I tried, pretty poorly to video it.

Never too hot to barbeque.  🙂 Yesterday was 90* yesterday with a heat index of 97. I made some delicious garlic black pepper chicken breasts and some roasted brussels sprouts.

Today I am smoking some bacon cheddar burgers, beer brats, and cheddar brats for the tadpoles. Outside temp is 88*, feels like 90* They probably won't be ready for an hour or so but They are going to be *chef's kiss*

As for T-bones....

I will share my chunky tet:

Lovely eagle reverse, nice coin. Your food looks good. It was 106F here today, we are not used to that heat on the coast.  There is normally a sea breeze but not today.

Yeah I love the eagle.  The obverse leaves a bit much to be desired.
106? I heard it was hot over in Europe but I didn't realize it was THAT hot. 
Yuck.

I live in NE Oregon at 3000 feet in the foothills of mountains. Here is a photo of my thermometer yesterday:

Oregon!  It is not supposed to be like this.

More BBQ pics....sorry....I wanted a grill for 11 years and wasn't able to have one until we moved into our new house last summer. I have been taking full advantage of the grill since buying it about a month ago.

Here is tonight's dinner:

Lovely sestertius, @expat!! I do love me some T-Bone!! As you well know, the antoniniani of Trebonianus Gallus are plentiful but nice bronzes are not so easy to acquire. I wrote an installment of "T-Bone Tuesday" elsewhere about the PIETAS AVGG reverse types.

I don't have the sestertius of the PIETAS AVGG type, but there were three different Antoniniani:

Rome mint with star (no altar at Pietas's feet), mid-August to mid-November, 251 CE:

TrebonianusGallusPIETASAVGGstarantoninianusRome.jpg.015854d7124b40780f7b55307f98f7ac.jpg

Rome mint without star (no altar at Pietas's feet) mid-November, 251 to mid-July, 252 CE:

Branch mint (Mediolanum??), altar at Pietas's feet, 252-253 CE:

During the time of Trebonianus Gallus (251-253) the plague raged, claiming the life of co-emperor Hostilian in late 251. Apollo was a god of health and this type APOLL SALUTARI, according to Carson "seem to refer to the menace of the great plague which was sweeping Italy at the time."

21 mm. 3.62 grams.
Rome mint. RIC 32. "... must refer directly to the plague." Sear III 9627.  Foss 7.
