Denarius find for i.d please

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Any chance of an i.d on this denarius found detecting this morning. I don't find much roman so this was a very welcome find.

I have looked in spinks  but no exact bust to this coin.

As close as i can get is Julia Domna. but i could be a million miles away.

Thanks for any help.

Yes!!

I believe i was right with Julia Domna.

Thanks Rob for the Wildwinds site. I think it was the first coin for Julia Domna i looked at 😀

Julia Domna Denarius,Ric 538 Rsc 221 Bmc 56

Rome mint 195AD Draped bust right /VESTA

Vesta seated left, holding palladium and sceptre

Rsc 221.

The face on my coin looks a little crabbier but she has been in the ground for almost 2000 years.

I'm late to this thread - yes, it's Julia Domna; you can make out the MNA AUG to the right of her bust, and just discern the DO to the left. It's her portrait too.

I found my first denarius on the spoil tip of an archaeological dig in 1974 - a Julia Domna in VF. Sadly I was a penurious student when I got back to Brum and sold it to a dealer for around £7, a small fortune back then.

I'm sure I will not look that good even after 20 years
