Pertinax aka Publius Helvius Pertinax Augustus Denarius
Pertinax AR Denarius. Rome, AD 193. 3.21g, 17mm, 7h

O: IMP CAES P HELV PERTIN AVG, laureate head right
R: VOT DECEN TR P COS II, Pertinax, togate and veiled, standing left, sacrificing out of patera in right hand over tripod. - BM 24. RIC 13a (R2). Cohen 56 (50 Fr.)

An interesting type in that it is the earliest Roman coin type to commemorate the undertaking of decennalian vows at the beginning of an emperor's reign. His rule lasted about 9 years and 9 months short of celebrating his decennalia.
