Elaea, Aeolis, 138 - 192 A.D.
|Aeolis|, |Elaea,| |Aeolis,| |138| |-| |192| |A.D.|, The head on this type has traditionally been identified as Lucius Verus; however, Lucius Verus was 30 years old when he was made caesar and he was made augustus simultaneously. The legend and young portrait suggest it might be someone else. RPC identifies the identity of the head as uncertain and lists Lucius Verus, Lucius Aelius and Commodus as possibilities.
