Maximinvs II ... altro Not in RIC ???


Recommended Posts

Probabilmente Babbo Natale quest'anno ha contribuito ad "arricchire" la mia raccolta su Massimino Daia con un esemplare della Zecca di Antiochia molto interessante ( il tanto vituperato "solito sito d'aste" a volte è fonte di vere sorprese ) .... Allego oltre alla foto, il commento di Lech Stepniewski autore dell' interessate sito http://www.notinric.prv.pl/ ...

Hi Luca!

Your nice coin is PROBABLY not in RIC, because ANTIOCHIA 169b has star

in right field (not in exergue) and Virtus is dragging captive (not

holding a spear).

It is also possibility that the description in RIC is not complete.

Maybe all coins from officina delta/epsilon have such changes on

reverse? When delta is in left field and epsilon is in right field

there is simply no room for star and captive. But I have never seen

any specimen from officina delta/epsilon. It's very rare issue!
