Emperor Nero has become one of the more infamous Roman Emperors in the modern day, thus an interest in his coins. His name carries an image of a madman stemming from various stories and claims, such as his instigation of the Great Fire of Rome, which burnt down a significant portion of the city, or perhaps his image comes from contemporary political slander and exaggeration.
This coin is a billon tetradrachm with the emporor's radiate head on one side and a personification of the Egyptian city of Alexandria.
Inscriptions are NERW KLAY KAIS SEB GER and AYTO-KRA.
Very approximate catalog values run like this:
