Antoninus Pius. AD 138-161. Æ Sestertius (33mm, 26.25 g, 6h). Rome mint. Struck AD 139. Laureate head right / PHOE [NI]CE, Phoenicia standing left, with left foot on prow, holding jeweled crown and scepter; palm tree to right, COS II/S C across field. RIC III 587; BMCRE 1195 = Banti 266. Brown surfaces, some roughness, scratches on edge. Near VF. Very rare type, and possibly only the second known example with COS II in the field rather than in the exergue. Banti cites one specimen for this variety, and only one, this coin, in CoinArchives.
