silver billon tetradrachm of Antoninus Pius (138-161 AD). The coin depicts the emperor upon its obverse and Poseidon standing with a dolphin and his Trident of the coin's reverse. It is well silvered (unusually so for this series). A really nice tetradrachm with an interesting the highly collectable reverse type!
