A very attractive example of Otho, with excellent eye appeal. Congratulations!

Hmmm. Doesn't look like a book to me. Very nice portrait none the less. Perhaps purchased from a colleague?

Outstanding portrait of Otho! Makes me miss my Roman coins.

Thanks all for the comments. This one didn't come from a fellow collector, but rather the German archeology-trained VCoins dealer, Dr. Martina Dieterle. I asked her to hunt out quality 12 Caesars portrait pieces for me in Europe, that sometimes never appear in the American market.
