About this artwork
The front (obverse) of this coin portrays the emperor Marcus Aurelius, facing right and wearing a radiate crown.
On the back (reverse), the god Jupiter presents the emperor with a globe, atop which the goddess Victory is shown.
Marcus Aurelius Valerius Maximianus (sometimes called Maximianus I or Maximian) issued coins only as Augustus. The appearance of "M A" refers to the "Marcus Aurelius" in his name.
