Dear friends,
I want to share the latest purchase of S. Severus Denarius Emesa Mint Victoria. RIC VI 420.
The coin is some worn but not easy to find.
Obverse : IMP CAE L SEP SEV PERT AVG COS II - Head of Septimius Severus, laureate, right.
Reverse: VIC AVG - Victory, winged, naked to waist, standing left, inscribing AVG on shield set on column and holding palm sloped over left shoulder in left hand.

I read the reverse legend as VICT AVG, if that makes any difference. I don't find the extent of wear objectionable.

@Lucky Cuss-Thank for your comment. My coins really has rev: VIC AVG.
And I could not find any specimens on http://www.acsearch.
There are some variations of RIC 420 (RIC Emesa II, 9 as it listed in Wildwings.com)
Obverse : IMP CAE L SEP SEV PERT AVG COS I ; IMP CAE L SEP SEV PERT AVG COS II
Reverse: VICTORIA AVG; VICTORIAE AVG; VICT AVG; VIC AVG as mine one.

A nice example of a scarcer type. The VICT AVG reading is quite clear.

I only have one example of the type and it simply reads VIC-TO-RIA

I wouldn't call the OP coin particularly worn, but of course @maridunum's example is absolutely stunning in comparison.

It looks to be the same reverse die as this example.

@maridvnvm - Many thanks for the link.
There is a mistake in the description of the reverse of the coin - the seller saw the VIC on the reverse and does not see the T.
On my coin the T is clearly visible.
