Very Fine Roman Egypt billon tetradrachm coin.
Struck for Emperor Commodus, son of Marcus Aurelius.
Minted in the Emperor's 28th Alexandrian year = 187/8 CE.
Certified by NGC to VF.
Obverse: laureate head of emperor facing right.
Reverse: Emperor standing left holding scepter being crowned by Alexandria wearing crown standing left, surrounded by date letters L K H = 28.
Alexandria was the personification of the Egyptian city of Alexandria & is depicted wearing a crown of city towers.
This reverse type appears to be commemorative in nature, perhaps in connection with Commodus being awarded Pater Senatus.
