Spaniard Posted January 22 · Supporter Share Posted January 22 (edited) Recently I purchased this Septimius Severus denarius from Laodicea ad Mare and was wondering what the general consensus is, within the collecting fraternity now, as to the location of these types.....Would appreciate any feedback on mint location...Do I still attribute these to Laodicae or unknown Syrian mint?
