New Caracalla denarius with a nice Victory reverse


Recommended Posts

CARACALLA AR Denarius. Victoria - VICT PART MAX.
Obverse: ANTONINVS PIVS AVG. Laureate, draped and cuirassed bust to right.
Reverse: VICT PART MAX. Victory advancing left, holding palm and wreath.
 A good example of this interesting coin, celebrating the roman victory over the Parthian empire during the reign of Septimius Severus.
RIC IV-1 144a. RSC 660. Rome mint, A.D. 204.  3,2 g - 18 mm.


Post your Caracalla or Victory or defeat of the Parthians

Nice coin @expat!

I'll get the ball rolling.

I have a coin of Caracalla from when he was in his teens, but I posted that recently in another thread. Instead, I'll post another coin I have of him, which I haven't shown for quite a while...



Kind regards,
