Recently I've got one more Sinope's bronze, this time it's Augustus - Julius Caesar, dated ANXXIII.
So, help me, please, to ID this coin correctly, with reference, if possible.
I couldn't find any other example on acsearch, cngcoins, asiaminorcoins etc...
Diam. 20-21 mm, weight 6,54 g

Thanks in advance!

AR, each at ca. 22mm

Are these two silver birds from brooches? As seen in the photo, there is no pin attachment. Soldered?




Hi Kevin

You can see mine:

best regards
I'm also hesitate to tell which was the real origin of this..
Maybe  Shawn are right they were some decoration..
but I saw earliar some fibula which have some decoration like this...

I've bought this battered Carausius coin recently:

IMP CARAVSIVS P AVG (radiate, draped and cuirassed bust right)
PAX AVG (Pax stg. left, holding branch and vertical sceptre)
22-25 mm, 3,80 g

I wasn't able to find this combination of legends and mintmark neither in RIC nor in any other of my sources.
Has anybody seen a similar specimen somewhere?

Zenon M.

PS. The photo is not perfect, but all details are good legible in hand...

I don't like the style on the obverse at all... It doesn't look ancient to me...

 Regards ,

The one on the right side of Kevin's photo is a suspension loop from a 2nd - 3rd century Roman belt.  It would be attached to the belt with the small suspension loop extending below and allowing something small to be hung - dagger or knife sheath, purse, etc.

The item on the left side of the photo is a Roman belt decoration.  It would be placed horizontally on a belt and attached with two rivets.  I have not been able to get a "lock" on exactly when such belt decorations date from and would appreciate any information anyone has.  They appear to be a Danubian type.

I don't think so.  I would guess they were decoration for something else.  Soldered to the rim of a vessel perhaps.

Apparently someone hasn't read the rules of the forum.

IMO a forgery.
