Hadrian. AD 117-138. AR Denarius (17.5mm, 3.62 g, 6h). Rome mint. Struck circa AD 134-138. Laureate head right / Moneta standing left, holding scales and cornucopia. RIC II 256; RSC 966. Very light toning with luster. Choice EF. Struck from dies of fine style, with a wonderful portrait.

From the Style Collection. Ex Phil Peck Collection; CNG Inventory 734199 (December 2002); Lanz 112 (25 November 2002), lot 490.

Hadrian was a trend-setter in many ways, including his adoption of a full beard. Roman die engravers adapted quickly to his novel visage and produced some exceptional portraits in all metals, including this denarius, which artfully conveys his aloof, inscrutable personality.
