Unknown AE10
« on: January 17, 2006, 12:52:00 pm »
Dear forum members,

Please help me with identification of this coin. I cannot recognize nothink, although all details are very clear. I havn't even a direction: Greek? Roman? Another?
The coin origin is from Meadle East.

Thank you,

I think it's Berytus (Phoenicia).
obv: Nike advancing left holding wreath and palm
rev: C B (?), Lituus, hook left.

I say it might be Pontius Pilatus rare vareity with Lituus to left, the other side seems to be very crouded, but I cant make any thing from it.

Thank you Luigi and Salem!

I think Luigi is right. My coin is of the similar type. When this coin was minted? I supposed that it is somewhere in I century AD. I'm right.
