Really it was an interesting family, but this coin is an Agrippina Maior.
She was a mother of Agrippina junior and Caligulas.
I love this era of history, wars, scientists, and incests ...

Excellent find !!
AGRIPPINA SENIOR Commemorative issue struck under Claudius A.D. 41-54. AE Sestertius, Rome Mint, Circa A.D. 50.
RIC (Claudius)-102. Head of Agrippina Senior, right; Reverse: Large SC, legend around. Well centered, evenly struck and nicely defined. This similar coin is being auctioned by Stack's Bowers and Ponterio at their sale #173 NYINC Auction on 12 Jan. 2013. They (very conservatively, in my opinion) gave a pre-auction estimate of $1,000. I expect it will go much higher.

I expect it will go much higher.
Thank you Don!
This sestertius is the gem of my collection.
