late Roman or Vandal monogram
« on: December 03, 2016, 11:35:56 AM »
Here is a coin I got recently. I have been unable to identify the monogram. I consulted Wroth WPBC, MEC I, and this web site on monograms:
http://www.forumancientcoins.com/numiswiki/view.asp?key=monogram
It is 10-9 mm, 0.92 grams, 9:30 die axis.

The source (assembled decades ago) had numerous "Vandalic" AE4s from Carthage, including some Gelimer monograms, 8-pointed stars, and Justinian chi-rhos, but this coin's patina is different, so I cannot say they belong together.

I solicit your input.

I haven't seen anything similar. I wonder if might be an anonymous civic issue or perhaps just an unofficial issue.
