Otacilia Severa 

? - ? 

Wife of Philip I. 

While not much can be said about Otacilia the person, her coins sure are plentiful enough. This being the age of the cheap silver coins you can find her Antoniniani in any ancient coin dealerís inventory or in online auctions. These typically go from $20-$50 for problem-free coins of little or no wear.
 
Bronzes turn up regularly with the Sestertius probably being the most commonly available denomination. Asides from weighing considerably less than the Sestertii of a century before, they are still substantial coins.
