Weight: 3.1 g An extremely fine silver denarius of Diva Faustina Senior. Faustina was granted the title of Augusta early in AD 139, tragically, within two years she was dead. Her lifetime coinage is considerably scarcer than the posthumous issues struck in her honour by her grieving husband Antoninus Pius. After death she was venerated as a goddess, and the cult of Diva Faustina was widespread across the Roman world. Her elaborate hairstyle consisting of braids tied into a bun was admired and commonly imitated for several generations. This is a near mint specimen, perfectly centred with attractive old cabinet toning. ALL MY COINS ARE GUARANTEED GENUINE.
