<< < (3/3)

Hi Dane ,
 Very nice ..


I have some in my Celtic coin Gallery:


Joe Sermarini:
Septimius Severus, 9 April 193 - 4 February 211 A.D., Barbaric Imitative

Tribal peoples outside the Empire struck coinage imitative of Roman types beginning in the second century B.C. and continued to strike imitative types even after the Western Empire ceased to exist. Several official issues used this reverse type, but the style is exotic and crude. These legends were never used on any official issues.
