An exceptionally delicate portrait of this rare empress, and on good silver for this provincial coin. In my view, silver coins from the Eastern provincial mints are deserving a place in Roman portrait collections. Many follow the portrait styles defined in Rome and some offer fascinating local artistic qualities. AMP.
