Very rare (R9), S+, dark green patina

It is discussed wether these items are coins at all or rather temple tokens. Most of them are holed and on this specimen an attempted piercing can be seen too. Mr. Jekov has decided to add them to Nikopolis.

Pick writes: The head is surely unbearded and seems to be female. To name him for sure is not possible, but possibly it is the head of Nike who must have played the role of an eponymous goddess.

I think the coin is rarer than R8 because the pic in HrHJ (2015) is taken von the AMNG plate.

Pick: The head is surely unbearded, and seems to be female due to the hair-do. It can't be
attributed for sure but possibly it is the head of Nike who must have played the role of an eponyme
goddess of Nikopolis.

The head is surely unbearded and seems to be female because of its head-dress. May be that it's the head of Nike who was the eponym goddess of Nikopolis (Pick).

This is the earliest and most elegant depiction of the Praxiteles statue which is described by Pliny the Elder in his Natural History 34.69-70, but without an arrow on this type. Pick: 'May be that there is a lizard creeping up the tree.' Here the lizard could be seen clearly.

From the seller: "This coin strikes me as somewhat odd. First, it seems that the face of the obverse die was slightly different than the face of the obverse die. The next characteristic is that I believe the planchet is an imperial sestertius."

Claudius Attalus is known from coins of Pautalia. He is mentioned by Cassius Dio. He was killed by Elagabal because he was fallen in disgrace with Elagabal's favourite Comazon, prefect of the Praetorian Guard.

On an ex. from Sofia between P and ICT are surely only two letters; wether it should be read PRO or POC is doubtful (Pick). Here we have the same situation but we can read PRC IC for sure. But then however follows another letter looking like a P before the legend is continued with HG. It can well be a ligate TR!

HrJ writes NIKOP PROC, but I think it is NIKOPO PROC where the O of PROC is blocked. Otherwise the big space before C ICT can't be explained.
There are several different variants of this type. They are due to the sloppy making.

The dot behind ICTR could well be a part of the tree stump too! Although corroded a beautiful and interesting example of the coinage of Nikopolis at the time of Commodus!

This is the best preserved coin of this scarce type. All others are incorrectly described, because the palm branch in the l. field is not visible. Altogether an unusual depiction.

A possible explanation:
Because of its style this coin is a bit doubtful. On most specimens of this type the palmbranch in l. field is barely visible. So it is possible that the forger has not seen it!

Reminiscent of the type of Eros reclining r. on lion's skin (?), holding torch almost horizontally beneath him, known at Nicopolis for Caracalla Caesar and Julia Domna, AMNG 1468 and 1489, pl. XVI.4. There, however, one of Eros' wings is clearly visible above him. I'm not sure Eros is meant under Commodus too, since the all-important wing isn't visible. (Curtis Clay)

Where did I read that the Caracalla Eros Ć21 (Caesar) is as Eros also known elsewhere where Eros is playing Herakles, and is here sleeping as a very weary Herakles from all his Labors? So both answers may be true, or the wing (given Commodus's die engraver) might just not show. (Pat Lawrence)

The object in the r. hand of the river-god appears as a thin stick but should be a rudder; anyway it is no reed as Santini has suggested (Pick).
The big bronzes from Commodus are from bad style. They all seem to come from the same die-cutter, perhaps his first ones (Pick).

Pick called the object in the r. hand of the river-god a rudder. But here it is clearly a waterplant. I think this type has 2 subtypes:
subtype a with the urn within or above the groundline and a typical waterplant, and
subtype b with the urn under the groundline and a waterplant looking more like a rudder
Here it is obviously subtype a. But look at my other coins of this type!

Pick: The figure is of very bad work, referring to the lettering from the same die-cutter as the big bronze coins. Wether the bridle-like item is hold by her l. hand or stands free beside her is unclear; but it seems to be meant Nemesis.

This coin was difficult to attribute. The solution was the remarkable obv. portrait, which was found on HrJ (2011) 8.10.13.2 for Nikopolis and on asiaminorcoins.com 2/21 but here misattributed as Marcus Aurelius to Metropolis/Ionia. Both coins are from the same dies. So I had the opportunity to complete the obv. legend which is remarkable too.

The obv. legend of HrJ (2011) No. 8.10.13.2 (M ANTWNEINOC KOMODOC) should now be corrected to M AVR KOMODOC ANTWNEINOC.

ICCT is a well known legend error. But the obv. legend AVT L KAI or AVT A KAI or AVT M KAI is unknown. His name was L. AVRELIVS COMMODVS, and changed in Oct. 180 to M. AVRELIVS COMMODVS. My suggestion: This coin was struck before Oct. 180.

What immediately catches the eye is the clear Y at the beginning of the second part of the legend. This only occurs with the legends for Commodus at A - YR and the A at the end of the first legend part fits well. In the name KOMODOC the KO is missing and the M is only a stunted letter.

Auspex coins may be more incisive (and larger, usually) and Tertullus coins more majestic, but Gentianus coins, most of them with the same obverse die, are exceptionally elegant and refined for the late 2nd century (probably a year or so before AD 198). But they are not common! (Pat Lawrence)

Varbanov writes: tree stump entwined by a snake. As Pat Lawrence could show this is not correct. It is a lizard too but on an awry tree with implied branches which is known from sacro-idyllic paintings from the Hellenistic period.

Varbanov writes: tree stump entwined by a snake. As Pat Lawrence could show this is not correct. It is a lizard too but on a awry tree with implied branches which is known from sacro-idyllic paintings from the Hellenistic period. This type was first described by G.Dzanev in 'Coins of the Rousse region, Rousse 1998, p.66' (Pat Lawrence)

Because the obv. legend of the depicted coin is partially unreadable it is well possible that it is from the same die.
I think the rev. legend of the depicted coin is VP AVR GALLOV too. You can see the round head of the R before GALLOV.

Pick: It is remarkable that with the name of Flavius Ulpianus much fewer coins of Severus are known than from Caracalla or Geta; it is probably allowed to conclude that Ulpianus has taken the administration of Moesia inferior under the three Augusti and then after the death of Severus has continued it a fairly long time under his sons.

The strange object is not a kantharos and not a bunch of grapes. We have discussed it on FORVM and the most likely suggestion was a drinking horn. On a coin of Gordian III from Berytos Dionysos holds a rhyton (BMC 245).

Additional comment of Pat Lawrence: The head of Septimius looks like the work of that surviver from Commodus's worst dies who did anonymous Septimius in the time of Auspex (and, of course, possibly later—though we have no signed ones as evidence—since a change of governor might not entail getting rid of a reliable engraver who could make usable dies). We know from his Apollo Sauroktonos that he sometimes put into hands shapes that might be ivy or snake or whatever.

The bust of this obv. die is always slightly draped on the l. shoulder. Therefore the following types should be corrected:
- No. 8.14.4.7 (Athena)
- No. 8.14.9.11 (Nike with biga)

This obv. die seems to be one of the rarer ones.

The obv. die with the legend AV KAI LOV CEP. - CEVHROC, with which the coins no.1253, 1256 and 1263 have been struck, is used too by governor Cosconius Gentianus for no. 1266. Thus it is proofed that Gentianus was the direct successor of Auspex.

It is remarkable that Telesphoros here is clad in short chiton and not in hooded cloak as usually. The meaning of the role in his hand is unknown. Therefore it is sometimes doubted that this is actually Telesphoros. For more information take a look at the referring article in the Mythology Thread

Pat Lawrence: The coin is very interesting also in some other respects: The head of Septimius looks pre-Tertullus and the attitude and stance and the proportions of the Harpokrates make it resemble the unusual one for Diadumenian.

Coins of Ulpianus for Severus are rare, in contrast to coins for Caracalla or Geta. This type was known only for Geta. Because types often were struck parallel for all three emperors it is possible that this type could be found for Caracalla too! The obv. combination of legend AVT L CEPTI and this bust type draped and cuirassed is not known.

The object in the r. hand of the emperor is not clear at all. Sometimes it is called a sword. I think a small Nike is the most probable.

On this rev. not only the A of VP is separated by a point but it is clearly visible that all A have a small transversal line while this line is missed on the L. This is not by chance but well considered and notable written. The L belongs to a praenomen of Aurelius Gallus, probably Lucius
