He reigned for a little more than a decade in the latter part of the 2nd Century AD, roughly 180 to 190AD although I am just ballparking those dates, but pretty close in there. This guy was the emperor portrayed in the movie "Gladiator" and his role was played by Joaquin Phoenix. He was generally considered a pretty bad dude. He was the son of Marcus Aurelius and, unfortunately, that apple fell quite a distance from the tree. The coin was minted during his lifetime, so is in the neighborhood of 1820 years old.
Betcha that the apple was not even an apple from that tree.

I'll admit to feeling something less than manly the first time I wore tight britches and tall black leather boots.

Suddenly, I no longer cared how I was dressed!

There's a reason this man is smiling . . . .

Friend of mine useta race for em. Still have one of his wheelsets.

I helped Eddy B load some bikes on the roof at the Tour du Pont. Good times.

You've got a point, At the risk of stereotyping -- women who ride english generaly look very different from women who ride western -- in a good way
