ROMAN EMPIRE, NUMERIAN. Commemorative AE Antoninianus of Rome. Struck A.D.284 - 285 under Carinus
Obverse: DIVO NVMERIANO. Radiate head of Numerian facing right.
Reverse: CONSECRATIO. Eagle standing facing, head left; in exergue, KAA.
RIC V ii : 424

Though mis-rated as common by Cohen and RIC, antoninianii of Divus Numerian are in fact quite rare: there were only 15 of his antoninianii of all types in the Venera hoard, as compared to 25 antoninianii of the 'very rare' Divus Nigrinian. - source HJB
