A vary muddled strike--perhaps double strike.  Little hope for anything specific.

Roman Coins / Caracalla Denarius from an uncertain eastern mint
« Last post by Aeneas on Today at 03:57:59 pm »
Dear Friends

A few days ago, this denarius (2.78g) was auctioned from a respected auction house for a high price. It is attributed to an uncertain Eastern mint, probably dating to AD 202. While the portrait looks more like from the mint of Rome to me, I agree that the letters are  irregular and match better the Eastern style. I was wondering if this could not be an ancient forgery rather than a new, otherwise undocumented mint with an unknown reverse legend for Caracalla. Any thoughts?

Many thanks

David

Dear Amelia!

A really difficult coin. I'll try another start without first identifying the individual letters.

We have a block of letters in front of us that consists of 4 lines with a strikingly large number of letters, nothing like usual, where the top line has 2, 3, or max. 4 letters.
This arrangement exists only for Yehochanan. In addition, in the first line the third letter from the left is a Chet. Only Yehochanan has this. And it fits that there is only 1 letter above the first line. This is an A, which also only exists in Yehochanan. It is supposed to be a reference to Alexander Zebina.

Then the two first lines of the legend are
A
NN(Ch) WHY

Your coin is Yehochanan (John Hyrcanus I), TJC Group A1

Best regards
Jochen
