    ID H01:

Caracalla 198-217 AD. Denarius (AR; 18mm; 3.62g; 12h) 210-213. ANTONINVS PIVS AVG BRIT Laureate head of Caracalla to right. Rev. LIBERALITAS AVG VIII Liberalitas, draped, standing front, head left, leaning on column and holding abacus up in right hand.

This coin is unusual because Liberalitas is not holding a cornucopiae with her left hand; she is, rather, leaning her left elbow on a low column in the manner of Securitas. See also BMC p. 371, 79 footnote: 'The variant quoted in Atti e Mem.dell' Ist, 1925, p. 65, Liberalitas leans on column or sceptre(?), left hand empty, is quite uncertain' except, as we now know from this coin, it is actually, rather, certain.

BMCRE V – cf. p. 371, 79; C. - cf. 134; mt 9, 2008, p. 142 and pl. 4 (this coin illustrated); RIC IV, I cf. p. 243, 220.
