    Description

    Antoninus Pius (AD 138-161). AV aureus (17mm, 7.26 gm, 5h). NGC MS 5/5 - 4/5, Fine Style. Rome, AD 158-159. ANTONINVS AVG-PIVS P P TR P XXII, laureate bust of Antoninus Pius right, drapery on left shoulder / VOTA VI-GENNALIA, Antoninus Pius, togate, standing facing, veiled head left, sacrificing from patera in right hand over tripod at left, scroll in left hand; COS IIII in exergue. RIC III 295 var. (laureate only). Calic├│ 1718 (same). Extremely rare - this coin is the only example found in sales archives. Unusual smaller and thicker flan, but the dies appear to have been prepared for flans of around this size as the portrait and legends are of a more compact nature than the typical Antoninus aureus.

    Ex Numismatica Ars Classica, Auction 52 (7 October 2009), lot 448.
