Aelius, 136-138 AD, AR Denarius, RIC 435

 

An attractive example of this coin struck at Rome under Hadrian 137 AD. Aelius was named by Hadrian as his successor but predeceased him and never became emperor. Consequently his coinage is scarce.

 

O: L AELIVS CAESAR, bare-headed and draped bust right.

R: TR PO-T COS II, Spes walking left, holding flower and raising hem of skirt. 

I would grade this coin Very Fine but I have provided high-resolution close up photos so you can decide on a grade for yourself. 

 

For uncertified ancient coins I provide a grading opinion using the UK descriptive system. I offer a grading opinion as a courtesy, but please examine the high resolution close up photos carefully and decide on a grade for yourself.
