    Description

    Flavia Titiana, wife of Pertinax. A.D. 193. AE diobol (26 mm, 8.75 g). Alexandria in Egypt. Year 1. Draped bust right / Victory advancing left, holding wreath. Köln -; Milne - ; Dattari -; cf. Emmett 2649 (tetradrachm); cf. GIC 2104 (same); cf. Cohen p. 397, 1 (same); Gorny & Mosch 146, 365 (same dies). Good VF, dark green patina, light corrosion. Extremely rare - one of perhaps only two known. Coins of Titiana, the wife of the short-lived emperor Pertinax, are known from only a few specimens struck at Alexandria, and the only other example of this unique type was sold by Gorny & Mosch in 2006. That coin is considerably more corroded than the example offered here, and it realized EUR 5175 (approximately $6200 as of the date of sale) on an estimate of EUR 2000, with the buyer's premium.
