Licinius II, Ae 3 Issues struck in Antioch
The portraits of Licinius II struck in Antioch are quite unusual and never to be confused with any other mint. Note the sharp nose and somewhat pinched features.

Interesting. This is exactly the type of post I am hoping for in this gallery. It seems it is possible to attribute this type to Antioch even if the mintmark was off flan. Thanks!

Thanks Joe! In each case, the portraits are clean and defined. Kevin
