Pertinax Silver Denarius 193AD
15x19mm, 3.12g

Pertinax was an accomplished Roman military leader becoming Roman Emperor for the first three months of 193AD. He succeeded Commodus to become the first emperor during the “Year of the Five Emperors”. His attempts to reform discipline among the Praetorian Guard (emperor’s personal bodyguards) led to his rapid downfall and assassination.

Well struck, little wear and a lovely iridescent tone, a fine example of a rare emperor.
