Commodus (AD 177-192). AE as 26 mm. 11.1 gm. Two Obverses Series. Obv: M ANTONINVS-COMMODVS AVG, laureate head right, drapery on left shoulder. Rev: M ANTONINVS-COMMODVS AVG, laureate head right, drapery on left shoulder. cf. RIC III (Marcus Aurelius) 1260. Unpublished and possibly unique. Ex Morris Collection.
An unpublished type that appears to fit into the “two obverses” series of AD 179-180. A feature of the two obverses series is identical or near identical portraits on both obverse and reverse, but this coin seems to feature a middle-aged portrait of father Marcus Aurelius on the obverse and a young bust of the son and new Augustus, Commodus, on the reverse.
