At first glance the reverse of this coin looks like the common type of Jupiter presenting victory on globe to Emperor, but this reverse is Victory presenting a wreath to the Emperor.

If anyone is interested, I have an old copy of A Dictionary of Ancient Roman Coins by John Melville Jones that I will send to anyone in the US that would like it.

"A Dictionary of Ancient Roman Coins It is 115 years since Seth Stevenson's magisterial Dictionary of Roman Coins was first published, and there have been several direct reprints since which indicate its continuing value for students of the subject. In this new Dictionary of Ancient Roman Coins, Professor Melville Jones has produced a work on a small scale that brings together in a more compact form the results of recent scholarship. A wealth of coin photographs has been used to illustrate the entries. Created on the traditional A-Z basis, this Dictionary lists deities, denominations, subjects and topics that need explanation or elucidation. It is a dictionary that will be invaluable to all numismatists concerned with Roman coins, Republican and Imperial, and of use to anyone interested in the world of ancient Rome."


US residents only as book rates outside the US are a bit expensive.

if you are interested in the book (and have a mailing address in the USA), just be the first to respond to this topic and then PM me your address.

Fakes / Constantius I SACRA MONET AVGG ET CAESS NOSTR from Siscia
« Last post by Victor on September 23, 2017, 03:03:56 PM »
Here is a fake Constantius I (bottom on right) mixed in with a group of coins. Besides the style and patina being dodgy, the real giveaway is the obverse legend that names him Caesar and Augustus--  CONSTANTIVS NOB C AVG

Late Roman Bronze coins / Why did I buy this lot?

I bought this group because of one interesting LRB.

I am sure that some of you will have no problem figuring it out.
