Trajan, Divus. Antoninianus
Trajan, Divus. 98-117 AD. Antoninianus, 3.04g. (5h). Rome, restored by Trajan Decius, 250-1 AD. Obv: DIVO TRAIANO Radiate head of Divus Trajan right. Rx: CONSECRATIO Eagle with raised wings standing right, head left. RIC 85a (S). Cohen (Traj.) 666 (3 Fr.). Some areas of weak striking. Mint State.

Ex Berk 83, 26 October 1994, lot 547.

Underweight specimen: perhaps overstruck on an earlier denarius, though no traces of such an undertype have survived. The rarer of the two standard reverse types for Divus Trajan: only one specimen in Dorchester hoard, compared to 14 specimens with reverse Altar.
