Identification Help / Identification help for an Antoninus Pius Sesterce
« Last post by Montmercure on Yesterday at 03:41:24 pm »
Hello from France,

I recently bought a sestertius from Antoninus Pius (Cohen 363 - RIC 770 - BMC 1677) whose reverse seems curious to me.
The theoretical legend is "FELICITAS AVG" but on my coin, I have the impression that the legend is "FELIC IT TAS AVG" ie "FELICITAS" with 2 T. (one left from Felicitas head and secund right to the head of the caduceus)!!

Have you ever encountered such a spelling error?

Thanks by advance

I just added a new Julia Mamaea denarius.  This issue is from around 223 AD at a time when she was effectively ruling in Alexander Severus' name.

Dear Ralph,

Thank you for your help. It is Augustus, provincial with CA within wreath (not certain mint, several mints are proposed for this series - Mysia, Syria or Cyprus, Ephesus, Pergamum, Antioch or Paphos).

Regards,

Teutoburgium

Hi Ron,

While you're in JSTOR it may be worth pulling out Harold Mattingly's 1946 paper from Numismatic Chronicle, The Reigns of Trebonnianus Gallus, and Volusian and of Aemilian, pp36-46. He mentions it in RIC as adjusting the order of issues of Trebonianus Gallus that he couldn't incorporate in the main text of RIC. For example RIC issue 2 comes after RIC issue 3.

Wow! Thank you a lot!

Are you 100% sure that's a copy or there's any chance to be original?
