Think i posted this before in a similar thread. It´s my all time favourite caricature on an ancient coin so far.


From different obverse dies we know Herennia Etruscilla´s features certainly looked better than the product of this engraver shows:




Herennia Etruscilla, spouse of Roman emperor Trajan Decius, Rome mint, struck 250-251 AD.,

Antoninianus (21-23 mm / 2,65 g),

Obv.: HER ETRVSCILLA AVG , diademed draped bust of Herennia Etruscilla right, resting on crescent.

Rev.: FECVNDITAS AVG , Fecunditas standing left, holding cornucopiae and placing hand over child.

RIC IV, III, 127, 55b , Coh. 8 ; RSC 8 .
