Unlisted / Re: Constantinus I Marti Conservatori from Arles

Yes, it is unlisted in RIC. Ferrando lists it as #342.

Lech has a few examples on his site-  https://www.forumancientcoins.com/notinric/7arl23.html

Unlisted / Constantinus I Marti Conservatori from Arles
« Last post by Corduba on November 17, 2017, 04:39:51 AM »
Just from the same auction that Diocletian follis I bought this one.

As far I know, RIC don´t list this mintmark SARL for this rare coin.
RIC VII Arles 23

Unlisted / Diocletian misspelling observe
« Last post by Corduba on November 17, 2017, 04:16:58 AM »
Yesterday, I bought this coin in a spanich auction.
I could not resist the misspelling observe at the end of the legend.
IMP. C. DIOCLETIANVS P.F. A"F"G.

The auction house catalogued as RIC VI Alexandria 32a, but I think is RIC VI Alexandria 30a.

The picture is from the auction house.

Best regards, Ignacio

Unlisted / Constantinopolis commemorative from Antioch
« Last post by Victor on November 16, 2017, 09:34:43 AM »
RIC only lists the mintmark SMANI for the Constantinopolis issue, but does have SMANTA for a Constantine I GLORIA EXERCITVS issue (RIC 85) and this coin should come after it.

Constantinopolis
A.D. 335
18x19mm     2.4gm
Obv. CONSTAN-TINOPOLIS laureate, helmeted, wearing imperial mantle, holding scepter. 
Rev. Victory stg. l., on prow with spear, shield.

Unlisted / Helena SECVRITAS REIPVBLICE from Antioch
« Last post by Victor on November 15, 2017, 07:54:14 AM »
This workshop is not listed in RIC. Lech has an example (second picture below) on his page that is a die match with this coin.

https://www.forumancientcoins.com/notinric/7ant80_a.html

Helena
A.D. 327- 328
19mm    3.2gm
FL HELENA AVGVSTA; diademed and draped bust right.
SECVRITAS REIPVBLICE; Securitas standing left, lowering branch, raising robe with right hand.
In ex. SMANTA
RIC VII Antioch 80


EDIT- I think that the workshop is actually a B. I have another example that I will post later.

COTD / VRBS ROMA from Antioch with eyes to heaven
« Last post by Victor on November 13, 2017, 01:13:19 PM »
Here is a VRBS ROMA with an eyes to heaven bust. I have seen several VRBS and Constantinopolis with this bust type. The question is whether this was officially sanctioned or merely the engraver exercising artistic license...I think it was probably artistic license.

VRBS ROMA
A.D. 335- 337
18mm    3.0gm
Obv. VRBS-ROMA [City of Rome] Roma with eyes to heaven, helmeted, wearing imperial cloak.
Rev. She-wolf left with twins (Romulus and Remus); above, two stars.
In ex. SMANΘ
