Just got around to uploading these two recent purchases;  a 1670 West Friesland and a 1682 Campen.

Now I just need to find time to shoot about 20 other pieces for which I don't have decent images.

Identification Help / Which Roman Provincial town is this coin from?
« Last post by Jan P on Today at 04:56:37 pm »
Just back from a visit to a friend collector. The man is in his eighties and has no computer. He is a collector old style with a quite interesting collection.
Today I saw a brass coin in his possession with following legends in Greek:

Obvers: ΑΥΤ ΚΜ ΑΥΡ ΣΕΒ ΑΛΕΖΑΝΔΡΟΣ - Head of emperor laureate & togate.
Revers: ΜΗΤΡΟΠΠΟΝΤΟΥΜΕΑΕ - Hygieia to the right - Greek delta in the field.

It is a coin of Severus Alexander, but I have no idea of the town which has its name on the revers.
Sorry, at the moment I have no picture and within a month I will not see my friend back.

Is there somebody having enough with these data to come to an identification, or shall I repeat this question after a month and with pictures?

Perhaps the oddest thing is that Zeus seems to be wearing a baseball cap backwards.
;D
I think the target market for this fake must be a younger generation...  Zeus the Rapper!
