Sear 3386, 19x20mm, 7.32g
A bold portrait and pleasing overall.
This coin was struck during the reign of emperor Hadrian (AD 117-138). This time was mostly peaceful as Hadrian worked hard to maintain his adopted empire rather than expand it. Trouble from the Picts in unconquered Caledonia (Scotland) led to the building of Hadrian’s Wall to protect the northern frontier of Britannia around AD 122.
