Magnia Urbica is thought to have been the wife of Carinus.

Denomination : Bronze Antoninianus. Mint  : uncertain (probably Ticinum)

Reference : Sear-12431.

Size : 22.0 x 23.8  Weight : 3.06 grams.

Grade :  aVF/G and the reverse is slightly rough.

Obverse : Bust of Magnia Urbica right, set on a crescent, with MAGN VRBICA AVG around.

Reverse :  Venus standing left, holding a helmet and sceptre, with a shield at her feet and with VENVS VICTRIX around. 

The mint mark below is not fully visible, but there is an X placing it at either Ticium or Siscia.  The obverse die was engraved by the same celator that did the example illustrated on RIC V (ii) plate VIII, #4, which is a Ticinum mint example. 

Magnia Urbicia antoninianii have been appearing on the market much more frequently in recent years, but they are still fairly scarce as this period of Roman coinage goes.  Prices are now about 1/2 of what they were 10 years ago.
