Post your She-wolf and Twins Types with attributions or questions

Recommended Posts

I was hoping this thread could take off with people posting examples, and if you can identify it as thoroughly as possible that would be great. If you are unable, maybe somebody could quote your post and add to it. (Or even make corrections)

I don't know what draws me to this issue, it is certainly a bizarre reverse by todays standards. On the other hand, there is a lot of bizarre-ness today, but two kids drinking milk from a wolf is up there pretty good. I do remember my early schooling. I never took many books home but did just fine. I had a decent education back then. I remember Romulus and Remus and the founding of Rome.

So back to the coins. There must be a bazillion varieties, different mints, and subtle differences in Roma's headgear, stars or crescents on wolfs shoulder. Just a lot of varieties I suppose.

It would be neat to see a lot of these, post em even if somebody already did post one like yours. Hopefully this will be an educational thread.

I only have two so far and will post my first here now.

This very well may be a
Barbarous Imitation of a Commemorative VRBS ROMA, 335-339


Barbarous Imitation of a Commemorative VRBS ROMA, 335-339 AD Follis

She-wolf & twins Romulus and Remus. ( So my description has changed since first posted. Thanks to John Conduitt posting his very similar coin, I am concluding that mine is a Barbarous Imitation )


A much lighter version 14.5mm, 1.5 gr. imitating the Urbs Roma type, commemorating the founding of Rome. Barbarous coins were common in Britain at this time, but mostly produced in Gaul and Spain. Some, like this one, are shown by hoard evidence to have been produced in large numbers in Britain.

Obv. Bronze, VRBS ROMA Helmeted and mantled bust of Roma to left.

Rev. Mintmark •PLG (Lugdunum) Present day Lyons
She-wolf standing left, suckling the twins Romulus and Remus; above, two stars.
An original coin is cataloged RIC 242.
This one was reportedly found in modern Normandy.

King Amulius ordered the twins Romulus and Remus to be killed and they were abandoned on the bank of the river Tiber to die.
They were suckled by a she-wolf in a cave.
Romulus was the founder of the city of Rome. The god Mars was the twins father.

Neat collecting area....I only have one but do agree the reverse depiction is quite appealing...Mine was minted in Antioch..

I have a few

image.png.20ef50a6bd67e1fb061a297f8fdfde72.png

City Commemoratives, Roma.

Date Range: AD 332 - AD 335

VRBS - ROMA, bust of Roma, wearing plumed helmet, left / She-wolf, standing left, suckling twins; above, two stars

MintMark: -/-//•SMKA

RIC VII Cyzicus 106

 

 

image.png.916750cf8a2e6821af6a33849ebcb6be.png

URBS ROMA

1.78 g 18 mm

Struck under Constantine I. Arelate, AD 333. VRBS ROMA, helmeted bust of Roma to left, wearing imperial cloak / She-wolf standing to left, suckling Romulus and Remus; wreath flanked by two stars above, PCONST in exergue. RIC VII 373; LRBC 376.

 

But I find this one very interesting as it's a barbarous imitation. Much smaller than the official version, at 10.5 mm and 0.38 g.

Of course, the image of the shewolf with twins appears on provincial coins, earlier, suchs as this Macrinus from Laodicea ad Mare. There are other cities who issues coins with this reverse, I remember miserably losing a Diadumenian from Deultum.

And on republican coins
