PLOTINA, Wife of Trajan
The Sestertius was minted in c. 112 AD in honour of Pompeia PLOTINA, the wife of TRAJAN (emperor from 98 to 117). Maybe the finest examples of its type to survive from ancient times. It is struck on a broad full flan and the only Plotina Sestertius in the SARTI 1906 sale from the BOLSENA HOARD of the 1890's. This specima sold in 1906 for Liire 1400 an incredible price for a Roman Bronze or any coin at this time.

That portrait is so lifelike - if you look at it long enough, you can almost imagine her turning and looking back at you.
