Arcadius 2.jpg
Arcadius Thessalonica solidus- RIC IX 51var340 viewsObv: D N ARCAD - IVS P F AVG
Pearl and rosette diademed, draped and cuirassed bust right
Rev: CONCORDI - A AVGGG
Constantinople, helmeted, enthroned facing, head right, right foot on prow, holding in right hand a sceptre and in left a shield, on which is inscribed VOT / V / MVLT / X
Exe: COMOB (should be CONOB)
Mint: Thessalonica
Date: 383-8
Ref: RIC 9 51var (different obverse die break; 9 51 known only from copy in bronze)

The style ldoes not match that of of contemporary Thess. solidi. A virtually identical solidus (including several surface flaws (not die flaws)), but in better shape, was sold by Fritz Rudolf Künker Münzenhandlung Auction 111 lot 7110, 18 March 2006. It too may be a fake, but it may also be the host coin for this cast copy.

Offered for sale on eBay by Serdiko.
