Note /1 was attributed to Aelia, but it looks very different from RPC 3966. The Roma sale refers /2 to Trajan, citing RIC 702, and regarding it as an imitation; /1 looks more like Hadrian, for whom a quadrans with a boar is know (RIC new edition 684: obv. Hercules). For the moment, the question is left open.
