Trajan Decius. Sestertius
Trajan Decius. 249-251 AD. Sestertius, 16.88g. (11h). Rome, . Obv: IMP C M Q TRAIANVS DECIVS AVG Bust laureate, cuirassed right, seen from front. Rx: LIBERALITAS AVG around, S C in exergue, the emperor seated left on curule chair on platform, presiding at his first largesse; a togate figure stands behind him, Liberalitas holding out her coin counter stands before him, while at left a citizen climbs a ladder to the platform and holds out a fold of his toga to receive his gift. RIC 121 (R3). Cohen 75 (60 Fr.). Cohen with 60 francs and RIC with R3 somewhat overestimate the rarity of this type. Good VF.
