COTD / Constantine I SOL INVICTO from Ticinum...Sol facing
« Last post by Victor on Today at 02:43:22 PM »
Here is a nice example of Sol facing from Ticinum. There is a small discrepancy in the RIC listing though. It is described as "Sol stg. facing, head facing" when Sol is actually "stg. r." the same as the previous coins  Ticinum 130-132.

Constantine I
A.D. 312-13
22mm    3.3gm
CONSTANTINVS P F AVG; laureate and cuirassed bust right.
SOLI INVI-C-TO COMITI; Sol rad., stg. r., raising r. hand, globe in l., chlamys across l. shoulder and hanging behind.
in ex. PT
RIC VI Ticinum 133

The NVMMVS Bible example is attributed to RIC 49 due to its size. Both 36 and 49 are AE4 modules, but RIC 36 is 14- 16mm, while RIC 49 is 12-13mm. Though the size is not given, the weight of 1.11 g seems to put it in the smaller module category.

I have figured out the RIC number confusion Victor.
The coin on Nummus-bible-database doesn't have the IVN in the legend which mine does, this however still makes them both RIC 36 with mine being 36b & the other 36c. The same type for Gratian & Theodosius i is also 36, A & D respectively.
No workshop details or pictures, just the Type listed.
At least i have now got the ID correct.
Thanks again.

Sometimes you might not be able to find a picture of your coin online. This is because there are many, many thousands of coins in RIC and quite a few unlisted.

Thanks for the link Victor , much appreciated.
I will have to go back over my searches to double check but I am pretty sure that RIC 36 was the only reference I found for it.
You are 100% correct on the MM, it can only be P.
It still leaves me without a picture of my coin anywhere which i a find a little odd, the search goes on.
Thanks again Victor.

This coin was issued from two workshops- P and S and yours looks like the first workshop.

I looked on NVMMVS Bible, but they did not have an example of RIC 36, only this one- http://www.nummus-bible-database.com/monnaie-37579.htm

Maybe it could be the victories´ hands.

I can see why you might say that...below are some examples where it is more evident that they are ties/ decorations
