Issue Date: 2016
Publisher: Memphis, Tenn. : Art Department, Rhodes College
Abstract: This coin dates from 251 to 253 CE. The coin is silver in color and appears porous potentially due to corrosion. On the obverse a bust appears wearing a spiked crown, facing to the right and appears to have a beard. The inscription, "IMP CAE C VIB VOLVSIANO AVG" lies around the edge of the coin. Bust features are not able to be made out, however, the nose, mouth and chin easily made out. On the reverse is a female figure standing facing left. Anatomically, her right arm outstretched palm facing up, wearing a crown and holding a cornucopia in her left hand. The inscription "CONCORDIA AVGG" is around the outside of the figures. All figures and text appear raised except for a "C" which is stamped into the coin.
