Reverse: "IVNO CONSEAV
ΛT"
     Juno (the consort of Jupiter) veiled, standing left, holding patera and scepter.

Note:  I have been shown two other specimens of this obverse with a blundered reverse legend.  Both other specimens are fourees.  This example, although not showing any loss of plating could also be a forree or billon.  As this obverse die has been used for reverses issued under Trajan Decius, it was probably struck during or after his reign.

Reverse: "IVNO REGINA"
    Juno (the consort of Jupiter) standing half-left, holding patera and scepter.

Note:  This coin is probably an ancient counterfeit.  The obverse die is the same as the "AEQVITAS AVGG" coin and both reverses are common for Herennia Etruscilla As this obverse die has been used for reverses issued under Trajan Decius, it was probably struck during or after his reign.

Reverse: "PANNONIAE"
    The two Pannoniae, veiled, standing right and left, facing each other, clasping hands.

Note:  This coin is probably another ancient counterfeit. It has a copper core with silver plating.  The reverse is common for Trajan Decius but unknown for this Empress.  As this obverse die has been used for reverses issued under Trajan Decius, it was probably struck during or after his reign.
