A silver Denarius of Antoninus Pius in good condition. The reverse depicts Victory. The coin is not listed in the Roman Imperial Coinage catalogue, although it is listed in Seaby's 'Roman Silver Coins II; Tiberius to Commodus' (1995, page 183; ref 832a). The legend on the reverse suggests that it dates to the beginning of this emperor's reign, to circa 139 AD.
