Workflow status: Published Find published

A complete, silver plated, copper alloy contemporary copy of a silver Roman denarius of Julia Paula (AD 219 - AD 220), dating to the period AD 219 - AD 220 (Reece Period: 10). PROVIDENTIA AVG reverse type, depicting Providentia standing left holding cornucopiae on right and a wand or sceptre on left, globe at feet.

The prototype for this coin type does not appear in RIC. There is a small patch of copper corrosion product on the reverse and the obverse is darker in colour where the bust has been scraped, suggesting that the silver there may be thinner.
