Valentinian Posted November 16, 2022 · Member Share Posted November 16, 2022 Seleucia ad Calycadnum was a city in Cilicia founded under Seleucus I. Now it is called Silifke. (Map from Wikipedia) Here is a Roman provincial coin from Seleucia ad Calycadunm. (Calycadnum is the name of a river: "Seleucia on the river Calycadnum.") This coin is a whopping 37.3 to 36.2 mm and 26.17 grams. AVT K M IOVΛΙΟΨ ΦΙΛΙΠΠΟC CEB, radiate, draped, cuirassed bust of Philip I right. (Julia in the legend is a family name of Philip) CEΛEVKEΩN TΩN ΠPOCTΩKAΛ EΛEVΘEP in exergue, Confronted busts of Artemis/Tyche (with modius) and Apollo, small branch between. Letters between the busts uncertain, maybe KAK/AC SNG Levante 777-8, SNG France 2, 1039-1042 (all with different letters between the busts, none with this combination) To grasp the size, here it is with a US half dollar: Show us some coins from this city! 19 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
