Who is this on the reverse of this Caracalla


Recommended Posts

In advance, I thank you for your patience with me.

The description says it is Hera, but I can't find any in wildwinds with Hera at all. I looked everywhere for an hour to find one like it. No soap.

I think it is Julia Domna

What do you think. I got this cheap and it is not yet in hand. Best I could do with tiny pictures in a flip picture. I will photograph it myself when it arrives.

Here is the card that comes with it. I know there's not much to go on here. Sorry

You know what shanxi

I think you nailed it right off the bat. I looked at a lot of Caracalla coins since you posted and I am going to settle on that description for now.

But it might be this too and the seller did not describe correctly.
