i already saw your posts searching Forum
for similar issues.
Maybe i should add here what i compiled so far:
The dimple on both sides, Greek letter style
(Y for V, Λ for A, Θ for O), spelling errors plus the irregular alignment suggested a Balkan mint
. All the Latin coins of Perinthus
does not list Perinthus mint
, but identifies another type
as "barbrous". RIC
notes the existence of Balkan sestertii
but does not catalog

, with centration dimples
, was struck at a branch mint
. Coins of this mint
were little known before coins began flooding out of Bulgaria
with the fall of the Iron Curtain. I wonder if any from this mint
were included in Kleiner
's die corpus of Arch sestertii

"Since the series was only recognized by MacDowall
in Num. Chron. 1960, but most of the known specimens have only emerged from the Balkans after 1990, the series is abysmally catalogued in the standard
(1984), pp. 186-7, merely summarizes MacDowall
's findings without listing the coins individually.RPC I
(1992), 1759-1762, appeared too early to take account of the new flood of material from the Balkans, so mainly merely repeats the few varieties known to MacDowall
, with MacDowall
's illustrations too for the most part
Little was added in RPC
Suppl I, 1998, p. 24, and Supplement 2, Part
1, 2006 (online), p. 39.
My own assemblage of material appearing after 1990 has been haphazard, so not thorough or systematic."
You see, i´m very much and gratefully depending on your knowledge.
