Manlia Scantilla, Augusta 28 March - 1 June 193 A.D., Wife of Didius Julianus

Manlia Scantilla and her daughter Didia Clara were awarded the title of Augusta by decree of the Senate on the day her husband, Didius Julianus, became emperor. Little is known about her except that, due to an unknown deformity, she was reputed to be extremely ugly. The new emperor Septimius Severus removed her status and title when her husband was killed after ruling only two months. She died less than a month later. Her coins are very rare due to her husband's short reign.

Juno was the chief female divinity in the Roman pantheon. She was the wife of Jupiter and a member of the Capitoline Triad. She had many different aspects, such as Juno Moneta, Juno Sospita, and Juno Lucina, but here she is depicted as Juno Regina, "Juno the Queen." Juno is usually shown holding a patera, scepter or a statuette of Athena, and is often accompanied by a peacock.
