Valentinian Posted June 13, 2022 · Member Share Posted June 13, 2022 Here is one of two new VOTA coins, now on my website on VOTA coins:http://augustuscoins.com/ed/VOTA/ Caracalla, struck 208. Denarius. 19 mm. 3.33 grams. ANTONINVS PIVS AVG VOTA SOLVT DEC COS III, which is somewhat unusual for mentioning vows paid as opposed to the usual vows taken. Emperor, togate, sacrificing over tripod altar, sacrificial bull reclining (dead?) behind altar. Caracalla became Augustus in 198 and COS III in 208 (and COS IIII in 213), so this coin was probably struck in 208, right after the vows for ten years had been paid. RIC 204. Sear II 6906. BMC 578. The other new coin of Caracalla is on the page about vota coins from the third century:https://augustuscoins.com/ed/VOTA/third.html Show us some VOTA coins! 10 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
