Hadrian, 11 August 117 - 10 July 138 A.D.
The "Eastern" mint denarii of Hadrian are all rare. BMCRE vol. II, pp. 372-81, ppl. 68-71, lists 27 specimens from the collection and another 44 not in the collection but illustrated in the plates. The section on Hadrian's Imperial coinage on the Beast Coins website lists just under 50 specimens. This coin is apparently unpublished and we do not know of another specimen.
