Mark Antony, Triumvir and Imperator, 44 - 30 B.C., LEG VIII

Hadrian, 11 August 117 - 10 July 138 A.D.
Click for a larger photo BMCRE and Strack divide the issue of this denarius type between Rome and an unidentified eastern mint. Curtis Clay, however, believes that all denarii of this type were struck at the eastern mint, the earliest being close to Roman style, perhaps because their dies were cut by engravers borrowed from Rome. P.V. Hill omitted this type from his Dating and Arrangement; perhaps he reached the same conclusion.
RS90480. Silver denarius, BMCRE III 1035, Strack II 27, RIC II 339 (Rome), RSC II 382 (Rome), Hill UCR -, VF, porous, a few light scratches, weight 3.258 g, maximum diameter 19.4 mm, die axis 180o, unidentified eastern mint mint, 128 - 132 A.D.; obverse HADRIANVS AVGVSTVS P P, laureate head right; reverse COS III, Aequitas standing half left, scales in right hand, cornucopia in left; scarce; $175.00 (131.25)
