Silver Denarius issued by the Emperor Antoninus Pius in the period 140 to 143 AD, Ancient Roman Empire. Minted by Rome. Antoninus Pius was Consul for the third time (COS III on this coin) in 140 AD and for the fourth time from 1 Jan 144. This coin was therefore struck in the period 140 to 143 AD. The reverse commemorates either success in Britain, perhaps including the building of the Antonine Wall, or the suppression of an uprising in Germany
