Good Very fine condition. A lovely example. Scarce.

Julia Cornelia Paula came from a distinguished Romano-Syrian family and seems to have been both attractive and intelligent; she was picked to be the wife of Elagabalus by Julia Maesa, probably in hopes that she might be able to stabilize him. In the end she was unable to control him and was divorced in 220.
