Laureate bust right
BITHYNIA. Nicaea. Commodus. 24. A.D. 177-192. Obv: (M)AVKO-ANTΩ(NINOC) or similar. Bare headed and draped bust right. Rev: NIK(A)-IEΩN. Turreted and veiled head of Tyche right; countermark on head. Ref: BMC 45 var. Axis: 225. Weight: 6.22 g. CM: Laureate bust right , in circular punch, 6 mm. Howgego 65, 66 or 67 (?). Note: The coin can not be neatly assigned to either category. Howgego 65 (130 pcs) was applied to the obverse. Howgego 66 (47 pcs), which was applied to the reverse, was applied only to later coins. Howgego 67 (48 pcs) was also applied to the reverse, but almost exclusively to coins of Nicomedia. However, the reverse of this coin may have been mistaken for an obverse since it depicts bust of Tyche! Collection Automan.
