Mint?
« on: June 14, 2022, 11:50:17 am »
Hello,

The exergue is impossible to read. I actually think about nicomedia because of M in left field and break FEL TEMP – REPARATIO
 What do you think?

You probably have to break it out of that thing and get a closer look at those letters.

Is it an AN? ??

The exergue is impossible to read, no letter can be distinguished. Thats why i try to find something with the legend break wich appear to be seen only for some mints.

There seems to be an M in the left field of the reverse and the rider seems to be bareheaded.

This would indicate, Sirmium, Siscia, or Thessalonika as it looks like the rider is reaching out towards the soldier.
If you can define the rider to be bearded, then it is Sirmium, but the reverse is quite far gone.

If clutching instead of reaching and no beard, then it narrows it down to either Thessalonika or Alexandria. And the portrait doesn't look Alexandrine to me.
