Oh, magnificent. I only have Honos in the denarius
for Marcus Aurelius
• Marcus Aurelius
. COS II RIC
Ant Pius for MAur no. 429a. BMCRE cf.
nos. 594-602: this is one with CAE
SAR and with the branch separating CO and S.
There must have been a shrine to Honos in Rome
with a statue that was the model for this coin type
, but I don't know what his
attributes mean, the branch and the cornucopiae
. I just wanted him for his
masculine-gender name (like Virtus
for her feminine-gender name).
And they're pretty coins, too! Pat
P.S. I think your sestertius
must be RIC
p. 124, no. 772, where it is labeled 'S'.
