[Autom. eng. transl.] Ulpia Severina, wife of the emperor Aureliano, is known above all thanks to the epigraphic and numismatic documentation. Coin production in the woman's name began after the currency reform implemented by her husband in the spring of 274, probably in conjunction with his proclamation to Augusta in the autumn of the same year. Severina's coin portraits are examined according to the following categories: hairstyle, jewelry, clothes, secondary attributes, somatic features. Their study provides information on the hypothesized brief interregnum period managed by Severina after Aureliano's death, on the way in which the engravers of ticks worked, on the stylistic evolution of coin portraiture in the second half of the third century AD
