Well done, Jochen !

Incredible how prolific the mint was at Nicopolis  :)

I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the updated edition.

Cheers,

Caracalla AE18, 3.02g, laur. draped cuir. bust r., AV KES ANTWN / Homonoia with patera and cornucopiae standing left, retrograde legend NIKOPOLI PROS ISTR -- actually sold as Philippopolis. Hr-H-J 8.18.36 v., Varbanov 2957 v.  Although Jochen has noted other retrograde legends for this mint (https://www.forumancientcoins.com/board/index.php?topic=73689.msg462794#msg462794 and https://www.forumancientcoins.com/board/index.php?topic=52692.msg326971), I don't think that these dies get a reference in either Hr-H-J or Varbanov; corresponding to the description of a single Vienna specimen in AMNG 1597, there is one other specimen on WildWinds page http://www.wildwinds.com/coins/greece/moesia/nikopolis/i.html (from an H. J. Berk sale; second picture below).

Dear archivum!

Thank you for your contribution. But I think this type is already listed under HrHJ (2018) 8.18.36.14. I have added the coins from my Collection, sadly in worse state than the ones depicted in your post.
