          rev.:  "PACE P R VBIQ PARTA IANVM CLVSIT S C"
                     View of Temple of Janus with doors on right closed.
          note:  Priced in Sear M $88 in F. If one were to grade this from wear alone, it would probably be VF.  However, with the pitting on the reverse and roughness of the fields, I think fine would be a gift.  Still, it is over 1900 years old and of a famous Emperor.
