I love Postumus' portrait on this one, he looks like Santa Claus. Maybe it's because of the children on the reverse. The reverse die style is typically gallic.

Commodus - Medallic sestertius51 viewsWorn obverse legend, that should read : L. AELIVS AVRELIVS COMMODVS AVG. PIVS FELIX , head of Hercules/Commodus left, wearing lion's skin
HER CVLI / ROM ANO / AVG VST. in three lines divided by club, all in wreath. No SC.
33-34 mm

This bronze coin has the size of a large sestertius, but has not the letters SC, and the obverse is from the die engraver who worked for medallions, while the reverse die was carved with much less care. It is a reduced version of a medallion (42 mm) discovered in Crete - the only parallel I could find :

Probably unpublished

This as, among other coins with the pair of gods Liber Pater / Hercules on the reverse, was issued for the Secular Games of 204. Liber Pater and Hercules are the Roman versions of Melqart (Hercules) and Shadrafa (Liber Pater), the 2 punic gods of Leptis Magna, Libya, the city of Septimius Severus and his Pratorian Prefect Plautianus.

Gordien III sesterce.jpg
Gordian III - sestertius65 viewsNice Gordian III sestertius, reverse : Providentia Aug.

It was minted in 238, and is probably the very first bronze issue as Augustus for this young emperor of only 13. I like this coin because of the portrait : Gordian tries to look serious, without the stupid smile he has on later issues.
