The obverse presents the draped bust of Bruttia Crispina Augusta (164-182 or 187), wife of Lucius Aurelius Commodus Antoninus (161-192), facing right, hair tied in bun on back of head. The reverse presents Juno standing left, holding patera and sceptre. The material is silver, and was minted in the period 180-183.
