Roman Coins / Re: TREBONIANUS GALLUS and STAR WARS
« Last post by AMICTUS on Today at 05:00:46 am »
The six branches stars seem to be somewhat hastily engraved (and clumsily placed in the field on the reverse) so it could be the result of a suddenly  added mint mark to already prepared dies. The eight branches stars are more carefully engraved (and placed in the field on the reverse) so they could have followed a little later. A few coins of Valerian and Gallienus attributed to Viminacium (SAECVLI FELICITAS and PROVID AVG) and dated 254-256 also have always a eight branches star in the reverse field.

Hi Joe,
Yes, I think it's circa 12th century. Unfortunately, the reverse offers very little to fully attribute it. I think I read 'skepois' on the last line (may you protect) but there are hundreds of seal legends ending that way. I did check a couple of Annunciation seals, which are rare, but no evident matches.
Regards
Gert

Honestly Virgil, just dive in!  There are threads in the photography forum on taking decent coin photos with cell phones, and you can try that to get started.  Building a gallery is like falling in love all over again with each of your coins, and you get to have a macro-photography hobby as well :)

As for today, I'm posting an interesting Antoninianus struck by Aureolus in Milan for Postumus when Aureolus revolted against Gallienus.  This one is even more interesting as the reverse die had previously experienced a die clash so there is a left-facing bust inprint as part of the reverse.  Kind of a cool oddity.

I also posted a decent Antoninianus of Saloninas who was briefly caesar under Gallienus before being murdered by Postumus.

Hi, Ron,

The Aureolus coin is great  +++

I like that... ;)

Identification Help / Re: Apollo - Rose coin?

Yes, I have tried Caria Rhodes, on most of the coins, Apollo is looking front.
The only one, I have found that almost looks like it, is SNG Copenhagen 860, same type of reverse, but on obverse Apollo is radiate.
