THESSALY, Koinon of Thessaly. Faustina Junior. Augusta, AD 147-175. Æ Tetrassarion (31mm, 24.05 g, 9h). ΦAVCTЄINA CЄBACTH, draped bust right / KOINON ΘЄCCAΛѠN, Athena Itonia striding right, hurling spear held in her right hand, shield on her left arm. Burrer, MA-G 5 (this coin); Rogers 97, fig. 37. VF, green patina with some red; very rare.

This is the companion piece to the Marcus Aurelius Tetrassaria and it is interesting to note that Faustina Junior does not age the same way her husband did.
