Trajan, Divus. Antoninianus
Trajan, Divus. 98-117 AD. Antoninianus, 2.90g. (11h). Rome, restored by Trajan Decius, 250-1 AD. Obv: DIVO TRAIANO Radiate bust of Divus Trajan right with fold of cloak on front shoulder and behind neck. Rx: CONSECRATIO Rectangular, lighted altar with four panels on front and two steps below. RIC 86a (S). Cohen (Traj.) 664 (3 Fr.). Scarce: 14 specimens in Dorchester hoard. Good VF.

Acquired from Christian Blom, ANA Show, 15 August 1966.

Probably overstruck on an earlier denarius, as shown by the coin's light weight, its broad, thin flan with multiple edge cracks, and the apparent traces of an undertype in the obverse field, before Trajan's nose and forehead and above the top of his radiate crown.
