Back into the Flavian swing of things with another Titus denarius:

We missed you.

I think this one got missed in the updates.

An interesting type that has some mysteries

A Group 1 Tetradrachm from Antioch with distinctly "Alexandrian" style. The dies either engraved by the Alexandrian mint and shipped to Syria or the coins were struck in Alexandria for Syrian distribution. I lean towards the dies being shipped to Syria rather than the coins.  An interesting series.

Was happy to get this little gem in the mail today.

A rare quadrans of Titus with Julia Augusta reverse.  Rated R2.  Not one you see every day.  Even nicer in hand with almost black patina.

Thanks Peter.  Tough to photograph because of the dark patina.
