Herennia Etruscilla. Double Sestertius
Herennia Etruscilla. . Double Sestertius, 35.36g. (11h). Rome, . Obv: HERENNIA ETRVSCILLA AVG Bust draped right wearing stephane, earlier hairdo without waves, crescent below bust marking the double denomination. Rx: PVDICITIA AVG around, S C in exergue, Pudicitia seated left, veiled, holding end of veil in right hand, transverse scepter in left, her feet resting on footstool. RIC 136a (R2). Cohen 21 (80 Fr.). Very rare. Despite a few hairlines in right obverse field, this coin is in excellent condition, with no tooling, dark and light brown patination, and a fine portrait. About EF.

Ex Pegasi VIII, 29 April 2003, lot 521.

Double sestertii of Herennia Etruscilla are considerably rarer than those of Trajan Decius himself in the same issue: our specimen and about a dozen others in CoinArchives Pro and various printed catalogues all come from only two obverse dies and three reverse dies.
