Annona was the goddess of harvest and her main attribute is grain. When Severus Alexander was away on his Persian and German campaigns (231-235) he continuously struck Annona types. With the legend PROVIDENTIA AVG, "The Foresight of the Emperor," he assured that, though he was away, he would be carefully monitoring Rome's grain supply!

Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT GERMAN P M TR P VII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XIIII COS XIIII CENS P P P; Minerva adv. r., with spear and shield (M1)
Acquired from eBay, January 2018.

Very rare with 'GERMAN'. So rare in fact, Ian Carradice needed confirmation these denarii existed with this spelling when he wrote Coinage and Finances In the Reign of Domitian in 1983. Since the publication of that work several examples have surfaced. The issue this denarius is from also features extremely rare aegis portraits. I think what we have here are the markings of a special issue, perhaps struck in conjunction with the Secular Games which were held the same year the special denarii were struck. The series also features many coins engraved in fine 'Flavian baroque' style, as clearly seen on this example.

Well centred and fine style.

Reverse: GLORIA EXERCITVS. Two soldiers standing either side of standard; in exergue, R S .
Diameter: 16mm | Weight: 1.6gms | Die axis: 6
EXTREMELY RARE, POSSIBLY UNIQUE

Unlisted in RIC for this ruler. (Cf. RIC VII : 385 but with addition of palm-branches). This mintmark is not associated with Delmatius in RIC, it is an unrecorded issue associated with the next mint mark group and should be included between RIC 389 and RIC 390. Issues with this mint-mark are listed by RIC only for Constantine II, Constans and Urbs Roma and all of these are rated as R5, extremely rare.

Flavius Julius Delmatius was the son of Julius Constantius and the grandson of Constantius I. He was elevated to the rank of Caesar by Constantine I in September A.D.335 and given charge of Thrace, Macedonia and Greece. He was murdered together with the other members of his family after the death of Constantine I in the summer of A.D.337.

AR garas/groschen, struck for the city of Wratislawia in Silesian Bohemia (now Breslau/Wroclaw, Poland); 2.12 g., 25.90 mm. max., 180°.

Obv: + MATHIAS • PRIMVS • D • G • R • BOHEMIE, Four-part shield with Árpádian stripes, Bohemians lion, Lusatian bull and Silesian eagle, raven with ring in escutcheon.

Rev: GROSSVS • WRA-TISLAVIENSIS, Figure of Saint John the Baptist facing, holding lamb.

Type struck 1470-1490 (per Pohl) for the city of Wratislawia in Silesia (now Breslau/Wroclaw, Poland), after Matthias was elected by the insurgent Catholic Czech aristocrats as king of Bohemia in 1469 in opposition to the Hussite king, George Poděbrady, and seized Silesia. He was never crowned. In 1479, he agreed to limit his rule to Moravia, Silesia, and Lusatia, while retaining his title. Huszár does not list the coin without a W mintmark (in the reverse left field) but Pohl notes that it also appears without a mintmark. It seems to be more common without the mark.

(As a general rule, coins with an obverse legend ending in AG are rarer than those with AVG. Also, coins with Sol on the reverse with a spread chlamys are rarer than those where the chlamys is draped over one shoulder. This coin has both rare features.)

Flavia Maxima Fausta was the daughter of Maximianus and the second wife of Constantine I. Fausta was made Augusta in A.D.324 at the same time as Helena and this coin was struck to celebrate that event. In A.D.326, however, she was involved in the death of Crispus and Constantine had her executed soon after.

This coin is from the Grassmoor Hoard, Derbyshire, England. This hoard, consisting of some 1375 coins, was deposited about A.D.340. It was found by a metal detectorist near Chesterfield on 7th January 2001. The find site at Grassmoor lies close to the route of a Roman Road, the modern-day A61, running south from Rotherham to Derby. However, there is no evidence of any Roman settlement in the immediate area so it is thought that the hoard was either buried by a traveller along the road or by someone living close to the nearby Chesterfield fort, which seems to have been abandoned by this date. All the coins were professionally conserved and identified by the British museum. Some of the coins from the hoard were retained by the British Museum to be displayed both there and at the Chesterfield Museum, the remainder were put up for auction and this is one of those.

Obv: AYTOKPATΩP OYЄCΠACIANOC KAICAP; Head of Vespasian, laureate, l.
Rev: ЄTOYC NЄOY IЄPOY Θ; Zeus Salaminios standing facing, holding patera in r. hand, l. hand resting on a short sceptre; eagle on l. arm
Acquired from eBay, December 2017.

A small issue of tetradrachms were struck for Cyprus between 75 and 78. Style strongly indicates these are a product of the Antioch mint despite their Cypriot provenance. All of them are quite scarce compared with the large Syrian tetradrachm issues coined for Vespasian. This specimen from the second year of the Cypriot issue features the ethnic reverse type of Zeus Salaminios.

Some minor scrapes, but struck in good 'Cypriot' style.

The coins depict historical events associated with these emperors. This reverse type, though struck for both emperors, was in the East struck in greater numbers for Constans, even though this part of the Empire wasn't under his jurisdiction. It is therefore more than likely representative of Constans' defeat and settlement of the Franks in Toxandria, (part of Belgium) in A.D.342.

This coin is one of the vast issues struck for several years after a reform of the bronze coinage by Constantius II and Constans in conjunction with the 1100th anniversary of Rome in A.D.348. The coins depict historical events associated with these emperors. This reverse type, struck for both emperors, was only struck by mints in the Central and Eastern parts of the Empire, and only Siscia in the Central part struck for Constans. The type therefore more than likely is an allusion to Constantius' victory against the Persians in a battle which took place near Ctesiphon, the Persian capital, in A.D.344 which resulted in the Romans capturing the heir to the Persian throne.

This coin is one of the vast issues struck for several years after a reform of the bronze coinage by Constantius II and Constans in conjunction with the 1100th anniversary of Rome in A.D.348. The coins depict historical events associated with these emperors. This reverse type, though struck under both emperors, was in the East struck only for Constans, even though this part of the Empire wasn't under his jurisdiction. It therefore more than likely alludes to Constans' crossing to Britannia in c.A.D.343 to repel incursions into the province by the Picts. An extremely rare gold medallion exists celebrating the same event, it depicts Constans and has the legend "BONONIA OCEANEN".

Allectus, a chief minister under Carausius, murdered the British Emperor soon after the capture of Boulogne by Constantius in A.D.293 and took his place. Constantius invaded Britain in A.D.297 in a two pronged attack. Allectus was caught off balance and he was defeated and killed near Farnham as he hurriedly marched west to meet the invaders.

Marcus Aurelius Mausaeus Carausius, of Menapian origin and commander of the fleet under Maximianus, rebelled and set himself up as Emperor in Britain in A.D.287. All attempts by the central Empire to dislodge him failed and he adopted the title "Caesar" c.A.D.289 having negotiated a peace with Diocletian. He was murdered by Allectus, one of his chief ministers, in A.D.293.

Flavia Julia Helena was the wife of Constantius I and the mother of Constantine I. Constantine made her Augusta in A.D.324, and this coin was struck to celebrate her promotion and as part of the celebrations for Constantines's victory over Licinius. Helena had been converted to Christianity by the time of her promotion and she used her enormous wealth to devote much attention to the church. She died when she was about eighty years of age around A.D.330.

This is only the sixth specimen of this type known to me (including the 3 cited by Guillemain)

NOTE: scarce and desirable reverse type. Although RIC describes this type as "soldier resting on shield (...)" on better preserved specimens a nude breast is clearly visible, which effectively precludes a reference to a soldier. According to S.Estiot this is a personification of Roma dressed as amazon (hence the nude breast).

This is the only example of this type in my Probus database (assuming the specimen cited by S.Estiot and Ph. Gysen in RN 2006 comes from M.Griffiths collection).

Possibly an unicum!
