Many of these barbaric imitations are well executed but not sufficiently well to be in the style of the official output. I have gathered a few nice barbs over the years.

Obv:- IMV (sic) CAE L SEP SEV PERT AVG, Laureate head right
Rev:- LEG II ADIVT / TR P COS, Legionary eagle between two standards
Barbarous imitation of coins minted in Rome. A.D. 193



I have a strong preference for examples that I think are imitating the eastern mints

This one seems to be imitating the later style of Laodicea



This one seems to be imitating "Emesa"

Obv:– IMP CAE L SEP SEV PERT AVG CO, Laureate head right
Rev:– VICT AVG TR P [COS II P P], Victory walking left, holding wreath in right hand, palm in left



as are these which I find interesting because they are an obverse die match with different reverses (bought several years apart)

Obv:– IMP CAE L SEPT ERT AVT COS II, Laureate head right
Rev:– VICTOR SEV-E-R AVG, Victory walking left, holding wreath in right hand, palm in left



Obv:– IMP CAE L SEPT ERT AVT COS II, Laureate head right
Rev:– IOVL SER ?? AVG, Jupiter?, seated left



This one imitating eastern IMP II

Obv:– L SEPT SEV PERT AVG IMP II, laureate head right
Rev:– AEQVIT AVG TR P COS II, Aequitas standing left, holding scales and cornucopia

Thank you Sir!

Byzantion showed up on some of my searches, but nothing of this type.  I can see the Magistrate's name now-- :Greek_Pi: :Greek_Upsilon: :Greek_Theta_2: :Greek_Omicron: :Greek_Delta: :Greek_Omega: and perhaps  :Greek_Pi: :Greek_Iota: (a date?) to the right of the prow?  Interesting!  I will do a bit more research this week.

Hi folks,

Today, I swapped out 5 sub-par (blurry) Greek Sicily photos (Syracuse).

I finished swapping out my blurry Greek Sicily photos. Some photos need to be re-cropped at a later date.

Dear Libanus93 and Board,

This is a Greek bronze issue of Byzantium struck under the magistrate Pytho[...]:

What is neat about your piece are the extra letters which seem to extend both the ethnic and magistrate's name.  I am a little busy at the moment, but this would make an excellent research project! 


Best regards,

I hate to say, but I suspect they are modern replicas.
