Gallienus: Sols 'winged horse'
Gallienus (253Ė268)
Rome mint, workshop A.
Obeverse: [GALLIE]NVSAVG, Gallienushead right.
Reverse: SOLIC[ONSAVG], winged horse right. A below.

Comment: This is one of the most common coins in the zoo series. I have kept this lower grade coin over the years because of the excellent strike and the nice body of the horse. Iím a big fan of those íwinged horsesí Ė those who drew Solís chariot over the sky. The coin costed me about 10 dollars, and that is not a big investment for a favourite coin.

W=2.47g; D=19x21mm
