Wow, that's fricken sweet!! ... Oki, congrats on adding that awesome coin

Man, I love the River-god reverse .... oh, and superb portrait => super cool coin

I'm totally jealous of your latest addition (a nice big, chunky, eye-appealing winner!)

 Thumbs Up

I like these big bronzes of Philippopolis (and other cities of that region), especially from Antoninus Pius. The portrait style very often is imperial roman as if die cutters were transferred from Rome to the Balkans.

The seller of the "Minervina" seems to be a fanciful guy laugh

Dear FORVM,

I am in the need of the following pages from these two books for my research.  If anyone has them, can you please send me a PDF/IMG of the pages?

Need pictures for the following coins from Bates, pg 131?, Nos. 3078, 3086, 3095, 3096

C. Morrisson, Catalogue des monnaies byzantines de la Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris 1970

Need pictures for the following coins from Morrison, pg 599, No. 78, 79, 81

Thanks,

QG

Thank you for the confirmation of my translation Gert!  I recently read that the "rank of Patrikios (Patrician) was an honorific title and most known holders of the title were generals, members of the imperial family, or sons of military leaders."  Pogh_poor

I think the coin is actually Faustina II with Concordia on the reverse

Yes, Johannes patrikios (not patrikos). Your dating seems ok. Unfortunately we don't know more of this John, but his high court dignity of patrikios means he was not a secretary. Normally, provincial governors/generals (strategoi) have this rank.

More likely to be ordinary die wear than a cast. With the coin in hand it should be fairly easy to see if the cracks are from striking. If the cracks are from striking, it cannot be cast.
