03 01 Tiberius RIC 4
Tiberius 14-37 A.D. AR Denarius. Lugdunum Mint, 15-16 A.D. (3.74g, 17.6mm, 6h). Obv: TI CAESAR DIVI AVG F AVGVSTVS, laureate head right. Rev: [TR POT X]VII. IMP [VII] in exergue, Tiberius, laur. And cloaked, stg. In slow Quadriga r., holding laurel branch and eagle tipped scepter. RIC I 4 (R2), BMC 7, RSC 48.

For an emperor with relatively long reign, Tiberiusí silver coinage was remarkably unvaried with the ubiquitous ďtribute pennyĒ making up the bulk of his denarii. This is a decent example of, perhaps, the second most common silver coin. Although the reverse legends are largely off the flan, the obverse has a decent portrait and legend.

there is something about the wear of this coin that just seemingly fits. not sure what it is, but i can see why you were attracted to this coin.

One of the Types I like allot more from Tiberius. Great addition, and nice portrait!
