Lovely patina. I'm more of a silver guy (as most of you know), but I do have some bronzes with a somewhat of a green patina, but not a rich dark emerald like your example.

Congrats!
These are my two -

A lovely example, and a beautiful even patina. Well worth the asking price I'd say.

I rather liked the style of the portrait too
So before purchase I investigated the Philippopolis types of Geta to compare
Notice any similarities ?
And each one with a different reverse !
Now that is remarkable
