Caracalla . Acrasus, Lydia ???
« on: May 01, 2021, 01:30:01 pm »

Time to time I make spontaneous coin purchases outside of my collecting theme and put them on the side . So recently I’ve been going trough a bunch of coins and I rediscovered this in my drawer. I have no clue where and when I bought this coin . No tags.  Broken and repaired . After the long search I think I found a match , but I’m not sure . I don’t have any books on Roman Provincial and the only other example that I was able to find online is on Bibliotheque Nationale de France de Paris website and the same coin on wildwinds .

Caracalla . Acrasus, Lydia. 198-217. Magistrate Philodemus Moschianus
AYTO KAI M AYR ANTWNINOC, laureate, draped, cuirassed  bust right.
EPI CTR FILODHMOY MOSCIA B AKRACIWTWN, Artemis, with bow and
quiver, in biga of stags galloping left.
BMC 26; SNG von Aulock 2887; Mionnet IV, 16.
14.9 gr.
Additional information and comments are welcome  :)

No, GRPC plate coin is the same BnF coin in wildwinds.
But there is another coin in Sestini Mus. Fontana 8 (corr.
misread MOCXIA).

... But there is another coin in Sestini Mus. Fontana 8 (corr. misread MOCXIA). ...
You find the description here: https://digi.ub.uni-heidelberg.de/diglit/sestini1822bd1/0111  (last coin description on the bottom of the page)
but there is no picture.

Sestini refers to Mionnet and to a book by Joseph Pellerin, where the coin is described on page 142, first coin, but again without picture:
https://www.digitale-sammlungen.de/de/view/bsb10684986?page=158

As far as I understand it, this is the same coin described by Mionnet (page 3 and 4 number 16): https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k399108k/f10.item
and now in the BnF: https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b8516660s
