Geto-Dacian, Roman Republic Imitative, 154 B.C. - 1st Century A.D.

|Unofficial| |&| |Barbaric|, |Geto-Dacian,| |Roman| |Republic| |Imitative,| |154| |B.C.| |-| |1st| |Century| |A.D.||denarius|
The Dacians had a well-established affinity for Republican denarii, used them in enormous numbers, and also minted numerous imitations. Many Roman Republic imitative types, such as this type, are found in Dacia, and nowhere else. Some Dacian imitatives were quite faithful reproductions of the Roman Republic originals. Others, such as this coin, maintain the types but deviate in style. Other Dacian imitatives markedly diverge from their Republican prototypes with more or less fanciful, stylized or "barbarous" designs, often with mismatched obverse and reverse types and blundered legends. -- Phil Davis' website, "Imitations of Roman Republican Denarii" - https://rrimitations.ancients.info/
RR95316. Silver denarius, Davis -; cf. official prototype Rome mint, 154 B.C., C. Iuventius Thalna, Sydenham 379, Russo RBW 869, Crawford 202/1a, VF, slightly crude unofficial style, light toning, tight flan, flow lines, weight 3.699 g, maximum diameter 17.5 mm, die axis 270o, unofficial Geto-Dacian mint, 154 BC - 1st century A.D.; obverse helmeted head of Roma right; behind, X; reverse Victory in biga right; below, C TAL; in exergue, ROMA; SOLD


Germanic Tribes, Pseudo-Imperial Coinage, Mid 4th - Early 5th Century A.D.

|Unofficial| |&| |Barbaric|, |Germanic| |Tribes,| |Pseudo-Imperial| |Coinage,| |Mid| |4th| |-| |Early| |5th| |Century| |A.D.||barbarous| |AE| |3|
This type was minted by and used as currency by tribes outside the Roman Empire. It copied a type issued under Constantine the Great from the Siscia mint. Some imitative coins of this type are very similar to the Roman prototypes. This example has degraded illiterate legends and crude naive style.
RL38144. Bronze barbarous AE 3, for prototype cf. RIC VII Siscia 66 ff. (Roman, Constantine the Great, Siscia mint, 319 A.D.), Choice EF, very nice specimen for the issue, weight 3.284 g, maximum diameter 17.7 mm, die axis 0o, barbarous mint, after 318 A.D.; obverse IMP CONSTANTINVS P F AVG (blundered), laureate and cuirassed bust right; reverse VICTORIAE LAETAE PRINC PERP (blundered), two Victories holding shield over altar; SOLD


Geto-Dacian, Roman Republic Imitative, c. 82 B.C. - 1st Century A.D.

|Celtic| |&| |Tribal|, |Geto-Dacian,| |Roman| |Republic| |Imitative,| |c.| |82| |B.C.| |-| |1st| |Century| |A.D.||denarius| |serratus|
In ancient Greek and Roman writing Dacus (plural Daci) and Geta (plural Getae) were interchangeable names for tribes of the Dacia region, distinct from but influenced by and possibly related the Thracians and Celts. Modern historians prefer to use the name Geto-Dacians.
CE68430. Silver denarius serratus, cf. Davis C52 and M166; for the Rome mint, C. Mamilius Limetanus, 82 B.C., prototype see: SRCV I 282, Sydenham 741, Crawford 362/1, gVF, weight 3.846 g, maximum diameter 17.4 mm, die axis 135o, tribal mint, c. 82 B.C. - 1st century A.D.; obverse bust of Mercury right wearing winged petasus, caduceus over shoulder; reverse Ulysses (Odysseus) walking right, greeted by his dog Argos, staff in left hand, C MAMIL downward on left, LIMETAN (AT ligate) upwards on right; SOLD
