NEXT: Any coin from RPC Volume 10 era

Since Volume 10 covers Valerian I through Diocletian, I'll take the opportunity to post my own "latest Provincial coin": a tetradrachm from Roman Alexandria issued by Diocletian during his Regnal Year 9 (AD 292/293), the last year before his monetary reform took effect. It also happens to be a "plate coin," published in a book:

Diocletian, Billon Tetradrachm, 292/293 AD (Year 9), Alexandria, Egypt mint. Obv. Laureate and cuirassed bust right, ΔΙΟΚΛHΤΙΑΝΟC CΕΒ / Rev. ENA/TOV / L [= Year 9 spelled out] within laurel wreath; in exergue, A [ = 1st Officina]. 19-20 mm., 7.39g., 12 h. Dattari 5787; Geissen 3264/65; BMC 16 Alexandria 2541 at p. 327; K & G 119.84; Emmett 4084.9, Milne 5065; Kellner, Teil 22, “Diocletian Jahr 8 und 9,” p. 63 & Abb. 23 (ill p. 159) [this coin] [Wendelin Kellner, Die Münzstätte Alexandria in Ägypten (2009)].* Purchased from Dr. Martina Dieterle, Schenkenzell, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, Feb. 2022; ex Münchner Münzhandlung Karl Kreß [Kress] Auction 139, 20 Jun 1967, Lot 717.

The photo in Kellner:

image.png.24424e73678f65b329b87ee2b4bfad20.png

*The commentary about this coin on the cited page of Kellner states: “In den Lorbeerkranz einer Münze der selben Offizin (Abb. 23) ist die Jahreszahl ENA/TOV / L eingeschrieben. Das Portrait stammt vom „2. Graveur“, allerdings lässt der in ordentlichen Strichen gezeichnete Bart auf eine Überarbeitung durch den „1. Graveur“ schließen.” (Translation: “The laurel wreath of a coin from the same Offizin (fig. 23) is inscribed with the year ENA/TOV / L. The portrait is by the ‘2nd engraver’, although the beard, drawn in neat strokes, suggests a reworking by the ‘1st engraver’.")

Next: another plate coin.

I couldn't decide whether that was a joke or intended as a serious prompt.
