Tracy Aiello:
Quadrans, what a fascinating coin. I really like the reverse. Pardon my ignorance, but what does "coins of the mines" mean?

Joe Sermarini:
Nice example.

quadrans:
Thank you, Joe, and Tracy... ;) :) +++

@Tracy

This coin was made on the occasion of the emperor's visit to the mine, here now the mine in Delmatia. These are pretty rare coins.
