EtTu Posted November 10, 2022 · Supporter Share Posted November 10, 2022 I'm pretty sure my heart skipped several beats when this coin popped up on eBay from Romae Aeternae. It's far from the prettiest coin, but I'm to the point where I only need a few types from the Gallienus Zoo collection to have every type represented and this is one I just didn't think I'd ever find! I was prepared for some heavy opposition on this coin due to the rarity, but I faced very little and admittedly did a little dance in my computer chair when the auction ended in my victory! Gallienus, Rome 267-268AD 23mm, 2.91g GALLIENVS AVG, Radiate head right APOLLINI CONS AVG, Centaur rearing right while drawing bow and arrow; Z in exergue Ref- Wolkow 3a7 As I have very few types left in my Gallienus Zoo collection, I've been thinking of expanding into new territories. I'll still continue to collect exceptional or unusual coins though. One of my recent acquisitions, although not too far out of my of current realm, is this barbarous radiate of Gallienus. I've added a few barbarous coins, but will continue to look for more. As for more of an expansion, I've been thinking of collecting portrait Radiates and/or coins of Probus. 24 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
