Una 197-198B/1b cicciona

Recommended Posts

Un asse unciale, proveniente da Tintinna 29, bruttino ma interessante.

E' certamente "vissuto", ma il rovescio é tra i più chiari tra i pochissimi 197-198B/1b che si vedono in giro.

Il tondello presenta difetti di fusione (non mi sembra che la superficie mostri segni di rogo) che fanno si' che non sia completo.

Ciononostante é un "peso massimo" per questa tipologia: 28,55 grammi. Non ricordo in biblografia esemplari più pesanti.

Tra le altre cose presenta strani segni di sgorbia al dritto, sul collo. Fosse stato un denario si sarebbe pensato ad un pezzo "aggiustato". Ma un asse... ???

This is a very nice example of this type. Here are the weights of my examples (all of the exact same style, and some are die matches)

(24 coins): 26.80g, 26.63g, 26.43g, 25.48g, 24.87g, 24.86g, 24.07g, 24.02g, 23.63g, 23.24g, 22.98g, 22.89g, 22.32g, 22.07g, 22.04g, 21.96g, 21.67g, 21.44g, 21.42g, 21.37g, 21.02g, 20.84g, 20.56g, 20.14g, 18.27g.

So your new coin is now the heaviest known example! I show below a picture of the complete series (the supposed As with I above the prow does not belong to this series but is from an earlier time)

I know. Actually I bought it just to check his weight (it was described as a 32,86 grams RRC 56/1: the RRC type was obviously wrong, and so

exaggerated weight needed to be checked... In fact the real weight is just 28,55 grams).
Of course you can pick it as a 25th.
