There is an extremely rare Pompey Pietas denarius for sale on Forum (and which has already had its price reduced substantially)

I stumbled on this coin while browsing auction catalogues in the Fitzwilliam museum library in Cambridge yesterday. It's provenance is

Hans Schulman 30 (19th November 1960) lot 1322 ex Gibbs collection.

I also attach pictures of the provenance information.
