Sesterzio repubblicano in bronzo

Questa moneta mi ha colpito: è la prima volta che vedo un sesterzio pre augusteo (ancorché censito fra le monete "provinciali") in bronzo!

mi sembra già sufficientemente audace l'uso della definizione sesterzio.....

E' una moneta provinciale, attribuirle la denominazione di sesterzio e' quantomeno avventurosa e fatta con il solo scopo commerciale di risvegliare l'interesse dei collezionisti. Anche se diametro e peso (un po' scarso in verita') potrebbero richiamare un sesterzio credo che sia alquanto improbabile che tale moneta avesse tale valore all'epoca

Concordo con quanto detto, non credo si possa definire un sesterzio; casomai (credo si usi questo criterio) lo definirei AE 34.

This is certainly a Sestertius. The value is clearly marked

Value marks in numbers

Delta (Sestertius 4 Asses).

Gamma (Tressis or 3 Asses),

Beta (Dupondius or 2 Asses),

Alpha (As).

Value marks in symbols

The Sestertius also has a Square as mark of value.

The Tressis has a Triskeles.

The Dupondius has two caps of Dioscuri.

Value marks by the number of objects

Sestertius has Four Hippocamps

Tressis has Three ships with sails and Three facing portraits

Dupondius has Two ships with sails and Two facing portraits

The As has a single ship with sail and Jugate portraits

The Semis has a ship without sail

The denominations are clearly marked in different ways. By letters

Α Β Γ Δ. By symbols. By the types. So they are very clear.

For information about these coins, see my website here:

I have a photo gallery of these coins here:

Don't you think that,perhaps, the number of object depicted could be just related to the space available in the face of the coin ?

The little is the coin ,the less is the space available,the less could be the items represented as well as the portraits engraved.

Maybe the letters could are a significative indication for the kind of the coin ( alpha for the as and so go on) but i don't think that the number of object could be the same ..
