AE15mm
« on: October 15, 2016, 02:01:32 AM »
Decided to catch up on attributing some coins. But with 51 sitting in a holder, a dozen sitting in DW and another lot yet to be cleaned, I could use some help.
15mm 1.71g.
  Thanks,
       Phil

Hello Phil,

This type was issued by Constans and Constantius II, the reverse is VICTORIAE DD AVGGQ NN.

The obverse legend looks like it fits Constans, which is CONSTAN-S PF AVG

On the reverse, the exergue is hard to read, but the ivy leaf between the victories means it is from either Trier or Rome. The style looks like Trier and I am pretty sure that I can see three letters in the exergue, so either TRP or TRS.

It is not the ivy leaf but the palm between the victories and so the mints can be : Trier, Lyon, Arles, Rome, Aquileia, Siscia and Thessalonica.

Yes, I am sorry...it is indeed a palm leaf.  mea culpa
