Rare, Historic Sestertius:
The Meeting of Hadrian and “Africae” (female figure representing the continent)

$40.00

Roman Imperial Orichalcum Sestertius.

Rome, 134-138.

Size: 34 mm, 23.8 grams.

Obv: HADRIANVS AVG COS III P P. Laureate, draped bust facing left.

Rev: ADVENTVI AVG AFRICAE. Hadrian left extending hand to Africa holding a patera over an altar (pan for heating wine; a Roman religious practice).

Ref: RIC 872-Left Var; Cohen 11. NOTES: The Africa series in itself was both historic and rare. Hadrian was extremely fond of and, reportedly, popular in Africa, particularly in his last decade. He was greeted enthusiastically in modern-day Tunisia and along the Nile, where he enjoyed greater popularity than even Rome. Yet this type is especially rare—almost all were engraved with Hadrian facing right, as on almost all his coins. For whatever reason, though, he faces left in this exceptional issue. Unfortunately this coin in badly corroded, encrusted, and pitted around 9” (obv) and Hadrian’s forehead. Africa herself is barely visible. Electrolysis or other severe restoration might improve the coin, but I wouldn’t try.
