Not only Hercules but his coins have also got skinnier towards the end of his reign. This is my lowest weighing denarius at just 1.94g, my clipped siliqua of Gratian weighs more than this! 


Obv: M COMM ANT P FEL AVG BRIT P P, laureate head right.
Rev: CONC COM P M TR P XVI COS VI, Concordia standing left, holding patera and sceptre.
1.94g. 191 AD
