ROMAN EMPIRE, Lucius Verus
Obverse. L.AVREL.VERVS AVG.ARMENIACVS. Laureate head right.
Reverse. TR.P.IIII.IMP.II.COS.II - S.C. Mars walking r., carrying spear and trophy.
RIC III 1379.

A nice setertius with Mars advancing on the reverse.
One interesting thing is that the reverse has not been cleaned to the same extent as the obverse.
