Strange object at the back of SOL

(1/2) > >>

Dear members,

ANy opinion about this strange object at the back of Sol on a coin of Aurelian. Is it a quiver? Never seen this before. This is RIC 64 Rome.

Thank you!
Best regards Jeroen

When he holds a bow then he needs a quiver too.


I can't say that I've seen a quiver shaped like a mushroom before. It almost looks like a sword pommel.

Thank you, this is quite a common coin and i have found 5 other exemples in the archives (about 1 out of 20), they are all mushroom shaped, but no one had described this object

I had always assumed it was an oversized fibula for the cloak he's wearing over that shoulder...?
