Diassaria, 9.25g
Stobi, Macedonia mint, 77-78 AD
Obv: T IMP VESPASIANVS AVG F COS VI; Head of Titus, laureate bearded, r.; globe at point of truncation
Rev: MVNICIPIVM STOBENSIVM; tetrastyle temple on the podium with two steps; inside, cult figure, r.; globe in pediment
RPC 310 (2 spec.).
Acquired from CGB.fr, November 2020.

The important northern Macedonian city of Stobi became a municipium during the early imperial period either under Augustus or Vespasian. Sometime after 69 AD, Vespasian granted Stobi the right to mint its own coins for use in local trade. This diassaria dated to 77/78 AD struck under Vespasian in the name of Titus Caesar features an unidentified tetrastyle temple on the reverse. The figure depicted inside the structure may be a cult statue of Zeus, possibly attributing the temple to that deity.

Beautiful emerald green patina.
