  • unique silver coin of Fausta

    I recently purchased a unique silver coin of Fausta, which I want to represent in this forum.



    Half argenteus , minted 307 AD in Trier
    Obverse: FAVSTAE NOBILISSIMAE FEMINAE draped bust left
    Reverse: IVNONI REGINAE, TR Juno standing left holding patera and sceptre, at feet to left, peacock
    Weight: 1.07 g.
    Diameter: 14 mm.

    found in Trier, former "Hopfengarten" in 1984
    described in "Funde und Ausgrabungen im Bezirk Trier", Heft 18, Trier 1986
    exhibited in the "Rheinisches Landesmuseum Trier" as a loan
    purchased from Zlatko Plesa January 2014

    Because of the obverse legend and the younger facial features of Fausta, this coin is considered to belong to a series of marriage coinages.
