Copper As of the Emperor Hadrian struck between 125 and 128 AD, Ancient Roman Empire. Minted by Rome. Hadrian was consul for the third time (COS III on this coin) in 119 AD. The mint at Rome seems to close while Hadrian was travelling around the empire. When he returned in late 125 a new simplified form of obverse legend, HADRIANVS AVGVSTVS, was introduced. Production of this coin, based on the form of the obverse legend, was between 125 and 128 AD.
