Countermarked Ancient Coins

The practice of "countermarking" coins, or stamping additional elements of design to a coin after it had originally been struck, was widespread throughout much of antiquity. This was particularly common in the provinces of the Roman Empire. Exactly when and why individual countermarks were applied is often difficult say with any certainty. Countermarks were applied to coins for many reasons, including revaluation, reaffirmation of validity, and propaganda.
