Amazing purchase David.  This must make the top 10 list for the year if not of all time!  Deserves to be in your collection!

This coin may rewrite what we know about the mint in Alexandria and Antioch.  It's an important coin.

Yes, La Tene was Celtic.  The Celts invented the type of enamel we think of as Roman.

The belt is probably 3rd century of so and likely military.

Kolejne przykłady niepojętej logiki starożytnych fałszerzy.

Zdawać by się mogło, że najprostszym sposobem wykonania fałszerstwa byłoby wzięcie jakiejś niezbyt rzucającej się w oczy typowej monety - na przykład takiej



i potraktowanie jej jako wzoru, który wystarczy jak najwierniej skopiować.

Tymczasem fałszerze z polotem godnym lepszej sprawy produkują na przykład takie dziwolągi:







Pomijam już to, że na każdej z tych monet brakuje liter S|F w polach. To mogło się zdarzyć przez niedopatrzenie. Już większe niedopatrzenie było potrzebne, by za każdym razem na rewersie dawać AVGG zamiast CAESS. Ale z jakiego powodu kreatywny fałszerz za każdym razem wymyślał inny typ popiersia? Nudził się? Rozpierała go duma twórcza?

Gdzie tu sens, gdzie logika?

I have known of this coin for over 6 years. Last week I finally pulled the trigger and purchased it ... I'm not sure why I waited so long nor why it went unsold! It's such a landmark coin and will be a cornerstone in the provincial section of my collection.

The coin also inspired me to purchase the Prieur catalogue in which it is featured.

The coin here is a smaller denomination as in SC 1426: http://numismatics.org/sco/id/sc.1.1426

Alas, the inscription is somewhat eroded and unclear so not sure if it might be the half-size of SC 1499 (ANTIOXEON TON EPI KALLIROHE) instead of one of the 'TON PROS DAPHNEN' type(s) SC1416 and SC1417. Types from those two 'quasi-municipal' groups look otherwise quite a bit alike and what's in Zeus's outstretched hand (and anything else in the left field area) is off the coin, which might give the specific attribution.
