117-138 AD Hadrian Denarius Africa

117-138 AD Hadrian Denarius Africa

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

£475.00
An attractive silver Denarius of the formidable emperor Hadrian, struck at the mint of Rome around 130-133 AD. Hadrian spent more than half of his reign travelling, his journeys documented in what numismatists refer to as his ‘travel series’. This coin celebrates his journeys to the northern coast of Africa with a detailed female personification reclining on the reverse. She wears what is reputedly an elephant-skin headdress, holds a scorpion in one hand and a cornucopia in the other. At her feet sits a basket containing ears of grain. It’s a depiction of bounty - the region exported foodstuffs and oil to Rome - and native species. The obverse shows a handsome laureate head of Hadrian, facing right. A lovely piece.
