A Zoo Series Antoninianus of Gallienus... from Siscia?

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I recently bought this coin as a part of a group lot on eBay, as it struck me as unusual.

The bust seems to be in the style of Siscia mint, but the coin has APOLLINI CONS AVG (centaur left) reverse.


Almost all "zoo series" antoninianii of Gallienus were struck from Rome mint, but a select few appear to have been struck from Siscia. MIR lists a few zoo series ants from Siscia, but not this exact type (with the centaur facing left). It looks like the mintmark of my coin may be I[S]?

The closest I can find is this antoninianus from the Reinhardt Collection, which possibly shares this obverse die


Any thoughts on this?
