Orbiana married Severus Alexander in 225AD.  Coins in her name seem to have only been issued in her name that year.  Her father was accused of high treason in 227 and executed.  She was banished to North Africa. This may have been a plot by Julia Mamaea to remove the growing influance of Orbiana over Severus Alexander.

Obverse a bit grainy as are the reverse fields.

Obv: Bust of Orbiana right "SALL BARBIA ORBIANA AVG"

Rev: Concordia seated left holding patera and double cornucopiae. "CONCORDIA AVGG"
