Hamburger assigns this type to the mint
at Tyre. Other experts suggest Caesarea
since they are commonly found there.
However, very small module coins,
apparently official issues from cities
around the eastern empire, were also
frequently found in the surrounding
sand dunes.

King Kanishka coinage bears eloquent testimony to his zeal for Buddhism. Lord Shiva and bull, Nandi were commonly portrayed on his gold and copper coins, but the most important numismatic contribution of him is as follows: he was the first ruler (and perhaps only one in ancient world) who minted coins with image of Buddha. The coins depicting Buddha are extremely rare. There exist only 5 gold coins (2 dinars and 3 quarter dinars) in the world having portrait of Buddha. There are some copper coins which show Buddha which are also rare. All these coins have been minted by Kanishka, most likely to commemorate building of great stupa of Purushpur (modern Peshawar, in Pakistan).

King Kanishka coinage bears eloquent testimony to his zeal for Buddhism. Lord Shiva and bull, Nandi were commonly portrayed on his gold and copper coins, but the most important numismatic contribution of him is as follows: he was the first ruler (and perhaps only one in ancient world) who minted coins with image of Buddha. The coins depicting Buddha are extremely rare. There exist only 5 gold coins (2 dinars and 3 quarter dinars) in the world having portrait of Buddha. There are some copper coins which show Buddha which are also rare. All these coins have been minted by Kanishka, most likely to commemorate building of great stupa of Purushpur (modern Peshawar, in Pakistan).

states

"Jordanov has the emperor seated on a backless throne, but in the broken example pictured (Dolna Kabda coin 761) the throne is not obvious: perhaps it appears on other examples of the type (Jordanov reports four examples in the stray finds at Turnovo, although it is noticable that they are not mentioned by Dochev). Jordanov describes the obverse figure as a Military Saint (or perhaps Archangel), but again this is not obvious on the coin pictured.
This rare type is apparently known in both large (medium?) and (at Dolna Kabda) small module form."

Edges hammered in antiquity (1st-3rd century) to create a "proto-contorniate"

Better in Hand!


Ex-Tater's

From Numiswiki protocontorniate:

A protocontorniate is a normal, large-module bronze coin, typically a sestertius, which at some point was later altered by hammering the edges of the coin so that it could serve some other use. A common assumption is that protocontorniates functioned as game counters since the rim created through hammering could protect the designs. Andreas Alföldi believed protocontorniates to be forerunners of the contorniates of the fourth and fifth centuries. He argued that protocontorniates were New Year’s gifts and that the older coins were actually hammered in the fourth century before the contorniates proper came into being.

Rev: FEL TEM (10-12 o'cl.)  Falling Horseman over GLOR - IA EX (3-6 o'cl.) Two soldiers with standard(s).
GLORIA EXERCITVS 330-340 AD
FEL TEMP REPARATIO traditionally 348 on, might already have begun c. 344 AD

Per Forvm members:
The dates may be even more widely separated.
The FEL TEMP REPARATIO only reached the module (approximate weight and diameter) of the GLORIA EXERCITVS with the last major issue struck circa 356 to 358. 
This is the FEL TEMP REPARATIO issue that often has an M in the reverse field. 
According to Brickstock (Copies of the Fel Temp Reparatio Coinage in Britain) it was relatively common to strike these late FEL TEMP REPARATIO coins on earlier coins of similar module.
The module of the AD 356-358 FTRs (average 2.25 grams) is really only close to the earlier GLORIA EXERCITVS with two standards (average 2.32 grams) struck 330-336
as opposed to the GLORIA EXERCITVS with one standard (average 1.63 grams) struck 336-341.   However, the late FTR is found overstruck on both the heavier coinage of 324-330
and the lighter of 336-348, as well as the more 'proper" coinage of 330-336, so yours could be either one or two standard types.

Provenance: Ex Forum Ancient Coins.

During the Second Punic War, Roman military mints often overstruck war booty bronzes into Roman types. Weights of the bronze undertypes were of little consequence since the coins were fiduciary anyway; thus we often see a wide-range of weights on these overstruck coins. Module was perhaps more important for visual differentiation. Sometimes, the undertype is barely noticeable. Other times, the result is a clear melding of the devices of overtype and undertype, as on this coin. Here we clearly see Poseidon’s remaining profile from 6-9h on the obverse. The reverse shows signs of the trident base at 8h to the left of the prow. The Mercury/Prow overtype is remarkably crisp and complete. Crawford contains a table of known overstrikes in the Roman Republican series which includes the types combined on this coin.

Struck for Khusro II, but using modified types of Heraclius. There are 2 sizes, the usual small ones (mine is 5.9 gm, 18.5 mm) and these larger module ones, about 4 times as heavy and double the diameter. How the two were valued against each other is a mystery.

Punch-mark on reverse: circular ring = Metcalf’s “Type b”. According to Metcalf, approximately 20% of the Anastasian small folles carry punch-marks; the annulus is one of the most usual designs.

Note also the slightly blundered obverse inscription, with N engraved in place of V as the penultimate letter.

Hahn accounts for the relative scarcity of this type by suggesting that the extra control marks (dots above and below the stars) were added at the start of the new lustrum in September 517. Consequently, this issue would only have been produced during the 10-month period before Anastasius’s death in July 518.Abu Galyon

The hippocamp reverse type was undoubtedly one of the first non-incuse didrachms minted at Taras, occuring at the very beginning of the fifth century. However these small module coins were minted slightly later than the spread-flans, probably 470-450 BC.

"He [Poseidon] towers on high above the peaceful waves, urging his team of Hippokampoi with his three-pronged spear: frontwise they run at furious speed amid showers of foam, behind they swim and blot out their footprints with their tails."
