Colonia Viminacium, Moesia Superior, Gordian III

Ave!

Colonia Viminacium, Moesia Superior, Gordian III

Æ; 22mm/6.3gm

Obv/IMP GORDIANVS PIVS FEL  AVG; radiate, draped & cuirassed bust right

Rev/ PMS COL VIM; Moesia standing left, arms outstretched over bull on left facing right and a lion on right facing left; ANIIII in ex. = 242/3 AD

Con/ VF; glossy green patina with earthen fill, well-centered with sharp stikes on both sides and cannot be improved in any manner.

Ref/ AMNG I, 84; Varbonov 119

Seller's Note/ This 'radiate' issue of Gordian is rather scarce and hard to find in this lovely condition, trust me, especially with such a perfect and untouched patina.

Not sure why, perhaps due to the alloy (?), but Viminacium issues tend to accrue spectacular green patinas.
