Help needed! Identification of a Roman Imperial coin.


Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone,

I am relatively new to the fascinating world of numismatics. Recently, I came across a coin and have been diligently trying to identify it, but my efforts have been in vain so far. Here is what I've been able to uncover about the coin:

- It's a Roman imperial coin made of silver.

- The reverse features Venus, a fact confirmed by an inscription that reads "VENVSV...". (perhaps VENVS VICTRIX?)

- Venus is depicted holding what appears to be a bird (or perhaps an apple?) in her left hand and a sceptre in her right.

- On the obverse, I recognize a diademed (female?) figure, bearing a striking resemblance to the bust of Julia Mamaea.

Could anyone lend a hand in identifying this coin? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! I've been primarily using https://numismatics.org/ocre/ for my quest to unravel the mystery of this coin.

It looks a lot like this coin, but I remain uncertain...


Thank you in advance,

Warm regards.
