Antoninus Pius denarius Italia
AR Denarius
Antoninus Pius, 138-161 CE
Diameter: 18mm Weight: 3.24 grams

Obverse: ANTONINVS AVG PIVS PP TRP COS III
Laureate head to right.

Reverse: ITALIA
Italia towered, seated left on globe, holding cornucopiae and sceptre.

Mint: Rome

Notes:
- This coin can be dated between 140 to 143 CE.
- A scarcer issue of Antoninus, alluding to Italian domination over the world. The cornucopiae symoblises the Roman belief in the prosperity and good fortune they had brought the world
- Denarii minted under the reign of Antoninus Pius had a target weight of 3.4 grams and an average silver content of 88%.
