Altamura, I think you are right. I can see the helmet and, indeed, have an example of it in my Greek gallery on here.

Regards,

Mauseus

I also see Spes on reverse, the portrait looks Flavian to me, yet more Titus or Vespasian.

Dear Joe, i dnt know how to have bigger photos without loosing pixels...

Hydatius, i agree for the die crack. But did you saw the forms under some letters on the reverse? Same the lettering is a few troubling. I worked on 1.200 coins of this same type PERP AVG without break, no reverse letters looks like. I dnt what to do with this coin wich is ''unlisted''. Classify it or not...

In my eyes it is one of this series of unknown origin with a corinthian helmet on the obverse and an incuse punch on the reverse:

There exist also larger denominations:

https://www.acsearch.info/search.html?id=7679504  (hemiobol)

You find a (very) short discussion of these types in Otto Mørkholm, "Une trouvaille de monnaies Grecques archaiques", SNR 50, 1971:

Meant to add, the coin does verify on the ANACS site.
