Spaniard Posted June 12, 2022 · Supporter Share Posted June 12, 2022 I've been looking for a decent example of this type for a while now... Spain, Obulco. Circa 150 BC. AE As (14.94 gm, 30mm).Obv.: OBVLCO, female head right.CX behind. (Probably a goddess of the harvest)Rev.: L.AIMIL / M.IVNI in two lines,the aediles (duumvirs); AID vertically to right. , between plow and grain ear (X above).This legend corresponds to fifth issue ca. 100 B.C (García-Bellido y Blazquez, Diccionario de Cecas y pueblos Hispánicos, p. 293, 5ª A27). Also it is Alvarez Burgos 2 edic. Nº 837; and Vives (La Moneda Hispánica) nº 25 Obulco plate XCVI-6 (dated ca. 150 B.C.)...(Thanks Veton) Please feel free to pile on your ancients minted in Spain, be it Roman , Iberic, Muslim....I'd love to see them all.. 20 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
