Septimius Severus, with Julia Domna, 193-211. Aureus (Gold, 20 mm, 7.57 g, 6 h), Rome, 201. SEVERVS AVG – PART MAX Laureate bust of Septimius Severus to right, his shoulders heroically bare. Rev. IVLIA – AVGVSTA Draped bust of Julia Domna to right, her hair arranged in six waves and with a bun at the back. Biaggi 1122 (this coin). BMC 192 note. Calicó 2588 (this coin). Cohen -. RIC 161a. Very rare. Nicely toned and with splendid portraits of fine style. Virtually as struck.
Sold on behalf of a Swiss bank, ex Numismatica Ars Classica 52, 7 October 2009, 507, and from the collections of L. Biaggi, H. Platt Hall, part II, Glendining & Co. 16 November 1950, 1693 and P. Vautier, Naville II, 12 June 1922, 1137.

While all the "Dynastic" issues of Septimius Severus and his family are rare, those that pair Julia Domna with her husband when he has a bust with bare shoulders are much rarer than those that portray Septimius wearing an aegis.
