Chariots on Ancient Coins
Geto-Dacian, Roman Republic Imitative, 154 B.C. - 1st Century A.D.

|Unofficial| |&| |Barbaric|, |denarius|NEW
The Dacians had a well-established affinity for Republican denarii, used them in enormous numbers, and also minted numerous imitations. Many Roman Republic imitative types, such as this type, are found in Dacia, and nowhere else. Some Dacian imitatives were quite faithful reproductions of the Roman Republic originals. Others, such as this coin, maintain the types but deviate in style. Other Dacian imitatives markedly diverge from their Republican prototypes with more or less fanciful, stylized or "barbarous" designs, often with mismatched obverse and reverse types and blundered legends. -- Phil Davis' website, "Imitations of Roman Republican Denarii" -

Titus, 24 June 79 - 13 September 81 A.D.

|Titus|, |denarius|
Certificate of Authenticity issued by David R. Sear.

"The quadriga with the basket of grain-ears shows the procession of the calathus of Ceres, sung by Callimachus in his hymn [to Demeter]: it had already appeared on the coins of the moneyers of Augustus in 17 B.C. (cf. BMC 38). It is unmistakably derived form Alexandria, and suggests the importance of Egypt as the granary of Rome, even beside any endeavors of the Emperor to revive Italian agriculture." -- Mattingly, p. xlii of BMCRE Vol. 2
