PESCENNIUS NIGER, A.D. 193-194. AR Denarius, Antioch Mint. ANACS EF 45. cf. RIC-25 (for type); cf. RSC-24 (same). Obverse: Laureate head right; Reverse: Fortuna standing left, holding rudder and cornucopia. Always encountered on rather crude flans with more bizarre engraving than the typical denarius of its time, this particular example offers incredible quality with fully legible legends and an immensely pleasing portrait of the brief emperor. Charming gray toning with some subtle hints of gold and luster further augment its appeal.
