Antoninianus of Magnia Urbica.[1]

Magnia Urbica was wife of the emperor Carus, until recently mistaken to be the wife of his own son Carinus. While both Carinus and Numerian were killed in 284 CE it is unclear what her own fate may have been or even if she predeceased them. She was granted the honorifics Augusta, and Mater castrorum, senatus ac patriae, "Mother of the barracks (armies), Senate and Fatherland".[2]
