Geta Provincial coin
« on: April 17, 2022, 11:47:03 am »
Hello,

Below is the URL to a Geta Roman Provincial coin I recently purchased and I was wondering if anyone could tell me, what if any, specific battle the reverse of the coin in referring to or any other information?  I cannot find any other examples in www.acsearch.info and the free version of coin archives.  I don't buy many Provincial coins, but this one really caught my eye and I could not resist.

Thank you for your help,

Paul

The coin here is also described in AMNG I-2 on page 777 as number 3012:

There are some words about the tropaion on coins from Tomis on page 635, but without reference to some specific battle:
