Lot description:


GALBA, A.D. 68-69. AR Denarius (3.45 gms), Rome Mint. NGC AU, Strike: 4/5 Surface: 4/5.
RIC-186; RSC-55. Obverse: Laureate head right; Reverse: Diva Julia Augusta (Livia) standing left, holding patera and scepter. A rather impressive and stately example, this Denarius from the brief reign of an emperor caught up in the "Year of Four Emperors" (A.D. 69) offers a bold, powerful portrait off Galba along with a fairly well centered strike, charming cabinet toning, and some alluring brilliance emanating from the fields.

Estimate: $1000 - $2000
