Severus Alexander. AD 222 to 235.

Denomination : Bronze sestertius. Mint : Rome. 

Date : issue of AD 231

Reference : Sear-8013

Size : 27.2 x 30.5 mm   Weight : 20.85 grams.

Grade :  VF with good smooth metal and a dark brown patination.  The coin is very attractive like this but I do not believe the patination is natural.

Obverse : Head of Severus Alexander right, with IMP ALEXANDER PIVS AVG around.

Reverse : Annona standing forward with head left, holding a cornucopiae, and holding two ears of corn over a modius from which extend more stocks of grain, with PROVIDENTIA AVG around and S C in the fields.
