Marcus Aurelius, Divus. Antoninianus
Marcus Aurelius, Divus. Died 180 AD. Antoninianus, 3.70g. (7h). Rome, restored by Trajan Decius, 250-1 AD. Obv: DIVO MARCO ANTONINO Radiate head of Divus Marcus Aurelius right. Rx: CONSECRATIO Rectangular, lighted altar with four panels on front and two steps below. RIC 92a (R2). Cohen (M. Aurel.) 1058 (3 Fr.). Mint State.

Ex CNG 38, 6-7 June 1996, lot 1017.

One of the rarest emperors in the Divi series of Trajan Decius, and particulaly rare with this obverse legend: see note to preceding lot. Joaquim Blay's online die catalogue of this coinage lists just five specimens of this particular type of Divus Marcus (RIC 92a), including our coin. It may therefore be considered to be the rarest regular type in the entire Divi series.
