    Really nice example of a very rare coin, the Divus Augustus obverse was Trajan's way of showing that he was a legitimate successor as Emperor, the legionary standards referring to his many victories in Dacia and the Middle East. In those days coins were very much political statements showing the emperor in the light that he wished to be seen.
