Septimius Severus - Thessalonica
« on: March 10, 2021, 08:54:52 am »
Hi everyone,

I have this coin identified as:
Septimius Severus AE26 of Thessalonica, Macedonia
Obverse: Laureate, draped and cuirassed bust right
Reverse Nike walking right holding wreath and palm

But I am struggling to get a full ID or to find a similar? any suggestion?

Thanks

Here is a similar in the BnF: https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b8591236d
but there is no exact reference for it  :-\.

Thank you Altamura.

Someone send this from wildwinds: ~

Septimius Severus AE26 of Thessalonica, Macedonia. AD 193-211. 12.04g. AY K Λ CEV CEYHΡOC ΠEΡ, laureate, draped and cuirassed bust right / ΘECCAΛONIKEΩN, Nike walking right holding wreath and palm. Varbanov 4346; Touratsoglou 201.20.

I don't have Varbanov or Touratsoglou. can anyone with these books send an image of the page?

Varbanov III (E) 4346 (not depicted) has Nike advancing right, a rarer reverse type than Nike left.  He cites Touratsoglou 201,20.  I cannot find my copy of Touratsoglou to verify. I just moved a month ago and cannot remember which box I packed it in. Your coin is not in BMC Macedonia (which is fairly limited for Thessalonica).  

   Obverse legend should read AY K Λ CEΠ CEYHΡOC ΠEΡ not AY K Λ CEV CEYHΡOC ΠEΡ and the obverse type is laureate bust right.

I'll post a picture from Touratsoglou when I find it.

Well you inspired me to find the book!  Touratsoglou cites Paris BN 1377. Obv die 10 reverse 20.  I'm having problems uploading pictures, sorry.

...... Touratsoglou cites Paris BN 1377. ...
And this is exactly the coin from the BnF I linked above  :).
