Julia Domna Silver Denarius

Silver denarius depicting Julia Domna (193-217 AD) on the obverse, facing right, with the inscription IVLIA AVGVSTA. Julia Domna was the wife of the Roman Emperor Septimius Severus (193-211AD) and mother of Caracalla and Geta. She accompanied her husband and sons to Britain in 208 AD and probably stayed in London. The reverse features Isis, facing right, wearing a peaked headdress and standing with one foot on the prow of a vessel. She is nursing infant Horus. The coin measures 19 mm in diameter and weighs 3.25 g. It was excavated at the site of Magor Roman villa, Illogan, Cornwall in 1931 by B.H. St John O'Neil
