Verina facing right, AEL VER-INA AVG / SALVS REI-PVRLICAE (sic), Victory seated right, inscribing a shield supported by a small column, CONE in exergue. 21mm, 4.82 grams. Cherson mint. RIC 655 variety, with the mis-spelled REIPVBLICAE (see the note below). Unlisted in RIC.

A coin of highest rarity, with only a handful of known examples.
