Prieure de Sion Posted June 13, 2022 · Member Share Posted June 13, 2022 Hello, one of my areas of interest are the Syro-Phoenician Tetradrachms, which can be found under Prieur. There are a few things I like about these coins. Among other things, the silver pieces are nicely sized compared to Roman denarii and these tetradrachms have wonderful portraits (especially the mintings from Laodicea, for example). A small "disadvantage" is that the motifs on the reverse do not offer such a wide choice. Here is one of my coins. Marcus Aurelius Severus Antoninus Caracalla Laodicea ad Mare, 212/213 AD Silver tetradrachm, 28.10mm, 14.30g Prieur 1173a Av: Draped bust of Caracalla with laurel wreath to the right; ΑΥΤ ΚΑΙ ΑΝΤΩΝЄΙΝΟC CЄ Rv: Eagle standing facing, head and tail left, with wings spread, holding wreath in beak. Star between legs; ΔΗΜΑΡX ЄΞ ΥΠΑΤΟC ΤΟ Γ Maybe you would also like to show your Syro-Phoenician Tetradrachms here so I can find more inspiration 🙂 15 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
