Much luster remaining. EF.

From the Style Collection.

Only rarely does one encounter a truly “medallic” silver denarius of this era, but this example merits the description. Not only is it struck on an especially broad, round flan, with a full border, but the quality of engraving and portraiture are a notch above the usual. Clearly whoever engraved and struck this piece took great pride in their work.
