Cinda W. writes: I have two coins that were found by my late husband in Greece. He told me he had found them in the 60’s buried neath some ruins. I can not seem to locate anyone who may be able to identify them or tell me when they were made, or if they are worth anything. They are interesting, carvings of horses and chariots on one side with the face of a Greek man on the other side. On the front it reads: LVERVSAVGARM PARTHMAXIRP VIIII. On the back on the bottom: COS II SC. I do appreciate any info. Thank you kindly, Cinda
This is a coin of Lucius Verus, Emperor of Rome and therefore is a Roman coin. The coin was minted between the years 161-166 AD. You can tell this by the Consulship year (Cos II).
These coins exist in various denomination in bronze, silver and gold. They are not carvings but minted coins struck with dies on an anvil. Your description doesn’t mention metal or size so it is difficult to tell you which denomination you have or the condition (grade of the coin). Values for coins from this emperor range from a few dollars to several thousand dollars depending on the above information.
