Here's wildwinds example.. Marcus Aurelius as Caesar, AR denarius, Rome. Struck under Antoninus Pius. Obverse..AVRELIVS CAESAR AVG P II F, bare head right. Reverse..TR POT III COS II, Minerva standing right, holding spear and resting hand on shield. RIC 444[pius]; RSC 618; Sear 4787 var (tribunal year). Nice looking coin you have there...
Sel I'm not sure but I thought all his denarius, at least the early ones, were minted in Rome? but I'm probably wrong... I found another example over on vcoins actually attributed incorrectly but clearly the same TRPOTIII COSII and seems closer in style to the OP coin...Maybe its just different engravers but I'm not really sure...Hopefully one of the Roman experts will step in...Paul
I have compared several different examples of the TROPOT II and TROPOT III but cant seem to find and exact match could it just be a mid coin maybe struck right after the TROPOT II with a different die?
