The four FORTUNA REDUX coins above were minted to wish Trajan good fortune on his expedition to Parthia. For that part the blessing worked well as Trajan's army swept into Mesopotamia and captured the Parthian capital. However, good fortune stopped there as Trajan was diverted by rebellions in Judaea, Cyprus, and Mesopatamia, and Egypt. Although he suppressed all of these, he fell ill and never made it back to Rome.
The images on the coins are similar. The major difference being in the inscriptions.
