David Atherton Posted January 18 · Member Share Posted January 18 Another coin in my 'Off the Beaten Path' series, this time a neat Macedonian bronze. Vespasian Æ23, 8.00g Thessalonica (Macedonia) mint, undated Obv: ΑΥΤΟΚΡΑΤΩΡ ΚΑΙΣΑΡ ΟΥΕΣΠΑΣ; Head of Vespasian, laureate, l. Rev: ΘΕΣΣΑ/ΛΟΝΙΚΕ/ΩΝ in three lines within oak wreath; above inscription, eagle standing, l., head r. RPC 320 (6 spec.). Acquired from Ephesus Numismatics, January 2023. During the Flavian era Thessalonica produced a smattering of coins under Vespasian and then again under Domitian. This 1 assarion piece struck for Vespasian is quite scarce with only 6 specimens recorded in the core collections cited by RPC. In hand. Please share your Macedonian coins. As always, thanks for looking! 12 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
