Carthago (near Tunis, Tunisia)

The mint of Carthage struck coins during the tetrarchy, being opened during a military campaign of Maximianus. Maxentius moved it to Ostia. Shortly after the mint was re-opened by the usurper Domitius Alexander, striking crude coins from dies obviosuly cut by ad-hoc workers. Carthage struck coins again under the Vandals. Dates of operation: 296 - 307 and 308. Mintmarks: PK. The name KART or KARTHAGO is mentioned in the reverse legend.

Carthago Nova, Tarraconensis, Hispania, c. 27 B.C. - 14 A.D.

|Carthago|, |Carthago| |Nova,| |Tarraconensis,| |Hispania,| |c.| |27| |B.C.| |-| |14| |A.D.||provincial| |semis|
The magistrates are quinquennial duumvirs P. Turullius and Postumus Albinus (for the 2nd time). In 30/29 B.C., the Koinon of Asia and Bithynia requested permission to honor Augustus as a living god. "Republican" Rome despised the worship of a living man, but an outright refusal might offend their loyal allies. A cautious formula was drawn up, non-Romans could only establish a cult for divus Augustus jointly with dea Roma. Most references date this type to the reign of Augustus but some to early in the reign of Tiberius.
RP84556. Bronze provincial semis, Villaronga-Benages 3145b, RPC I 175 (19 spec.), Burgos 602, Vives 131-14, Beltrn 32, SNG Cop 497, SNG Lorichs 1483, F/gVF, rough, reverse off center, weight 4.593 g, maximum diameter 20.3 mm, die axis 135o, Carthago Nova (Cartagena, Spain) mint, c. 27 B.C. - 14 A.D.; obverse quadriga walking left, vexillum before, P TVRVLLIO / VINK in two lines above, IIVIR / QVINQV in two lines below; reverse M POSTV ALBINVS clockwise above, IIVIR QVINQ ITER counterclockwise below, tetrastyle temple inscribed AVGVSTO on frieze, closed doors, VI-NK divided across field at center; scarce; SOLD

Non-Imperial Coinages in Africa, "Domino Nostro," c. 5th Century A.D.

|Carthage|, |Non-Imperial| |Coinages| |in| |Africa,| |"Domino| |Nostro,"| |c.| |5th| |Century| |A.D.||half| |centenionalis|
This type has been attributed to the time of Johannes and Boniface in Carthage 423 - 425 A.D., but strong evidence is lacking. We may more safely assume the series is later and copying official issues. The star is probably a crude Christogram or degenerated cross.
ME26375. Bronze half centenionalis, RIC X 3815 (R3), LRBC II -, F, weight 0.511 g, maximum diameter 19.5 mm, Carthage (near Tunis, Tunisia) mint, obverse DOMINIS NOSTRIS, diademed, draped, and cuirassed bust right; reverse star in wreath; very rare; SOLD

Constantius I, May 305 - 25 July 306 A.D.

|Constantius| |I|, |Constantius| |I,| |May| |305| |-| |25| |July| |306| |A.D.||follis|
This coin refers to the good fortune provided by Carthage to the emperors. When the Nile floods were deficient and Egypt suffered scarcity, Roman ships importing wheat steered for Carthage, from which they brought back a sufficient supply to the eternal city.
RT48330. Billon follis, RIC VI Carthago 32a, SRCV IV 14100, Cohen VI 271, Hunter V 40, EF, weight 9.010 g, maximum diameter 28.4 mm, die axis 180o, Carthage (near Tunis, Tunisia) mint, as caesar, c. 299 - 303 A.D.; obverse CONSTANTIVS NOB CAES, laureate head (larger) right; reverse SALVIS AVGG ET CAESS FEL KART, Carthage standing facing, head left, holding fruits in both hands, Γ in exergue; SOLD
