Stobi, Macedonia

Stobi (now Gradsko, Macedonia) was an ancient town of Paeonia, conquered by Macedonia, and later made the capital of the Roman province of Macedonia Salutaris. Stobi prospered under Rome and in 69 A.D. was designated a municipium. Citizens of Stobi enjoyed Ius Italicum and were citizens of Rome. Theodosius I stayed in Stobi in 388. In 479, Stobi was sacked by the Ostrogothic king Theodoric. The town was rebuilt, but in 518 was struck by a powerful earthquake. Avaro-Slavic invasions in the 6th century ruined the city's economy and infrastructure. Stobi is perhaps the most important archaeological site in the Republic of Macedonia.


Septimius Severus, 9 April 193 - 4 February 211 A.D., Stobi, Macedonia

None of the references describe this bust. Josifovski identifies all dies for Severus with the Victory left reverse as laureate, draped, and cuirassed but this coin (and his coin 126 from the same dies) is not draped or cuirassed. We believe there is the slight trace of an aegis on the far shoulder. Varbanov references Josifovski.

Roman Mint of Stobi

The findings and scientific results presented in this book come from the several year long process of collecting, systematizing, and processing of the coins minted in the Stobi mint. The collected material, studied from an autopsy, on the corpus of coinage in Stobi of 544 specimen of public and private collections from Macedonia and Europe, was a solid basis for studying of this type, which enabled us to give a more complete picture on the activities of the Stobi mint (73 - 217 year).
