Harlan said this reverse with Julia Mamaea as Annona is quite rare. It supposedly came from a small hoard from Syria in the mid 1990's and was the only example in that hoard. It's flawless except for a slightly flatness of the nose.


Good catch. You're the first to ever notice the unusual nature of this extremely rare beauty.
