Hello Nathan:

Turning the reverse 90ļ  can it be a horse?

The head reminds me of Tanit coins of ancient Carthage. Zeugitana.

There are with several types of horses ...




I hope to be helpful and not complicate the search.

Greetings. Smiley

Thank you Pscipio and djmacdo! I appreciate your opinions.

A follow up question outside of authenticity if I may. I do not have Milne's text on Alexandrian coins. I have seen similar coins attributed as 4545, 4546 and 4547. I am unsure of the difference... which would my coin fall under?

Thank you again!

Josh

It turns out that I have seen this variant before, I just came across my note in my copy of BMC: such a denarius was shown on Numismatikforum by brutus68 in January 2007.

Unfortunately a quick search of that forum didn't turn up the coin, and the printout I doubtless made won't be easy to locate.

While not a RIC 81 or 82 but a 73, below is a bad cell phone photo of my somewhat similar Constans Hut from Cyzicus.  Grin

The difference between the trees is always interesting and my little dude seems to be saying "thanks but no thanks." I like the look on your little guys face.

Nice coin Maridvnvm! I like the detail on the globe in-hand. I've always enjoyed collecting these Hut coins and have been picking up new mint cities when I run across them (probably have 6-7 mints representated. Someday I'll have one from each city).

2 questions for you:

Do you know anything about the quartered and dotted globe designs? What is represented by the design?

Edit: We see the same globe designs on the Phoenix coins, the Beata coins and others.

Also what's the most difficult mint city to find for these?

Again, nice coin!

Well, I looked at Wildwinds and it appears that Carrhea used

KOL M...

I cannot seem to find KOL W.

The Omega seems to be lower-case.  Is that significant?

Thanks!

To my non-expert eye, it appears to be Hadrian. 

Definitely the neck is too, not-scrawny, to be a Flavian!

Thanks Pete and Steve.

I had to revise my notes. For some reason I my dies being the same as the Pfalzer dies, but in each case it is only the Obverse dies that match. So, it appears that von Aulock #'s 134 and 135 are die-pair matches, obverse and reverse, whereas for the Pfalzer example only the obverse die matches von Aulock but the reverse is different. For my example, only the obverse die matches the Pfalzer and von Aulock coins but my reverse die is different from both. Currently there appears to be 3 different reverse dies.
