Lovely quinarius! I wish quinarii were more common in the area I collect, they are a great denomination imho.

Hi, Meep, Ron, and Eric ... +++

Thank you

@Eric

Do you know, the new RIC II 341?

The axis is exactly between 6, and 7h, probably 6h,

I do not find this quinarius together with this type of bust...
"Laureate draped and cuirassed bust right, seen from behind."
I find earlier only the same bust in the gold quinarius.

Your opinion?

Regards

See on OCRE. No picture with this bust but "viewed from rear" is mentioned in the text.

Thank you, Eric,

Unfortunately, I do not have the New RIC volume only the old one.  ::)

Last few weeks I put some other Hadrianus coins in my Gallery some nice specimens ;) :) +++...

It is, I mentioned that there is no picture of your type, but it is described in the text.
