A Unique Provincial of Crispina I Submitted to RPC

Roman Collector

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased this provincial of Crispina from Side in Pamphylia. I wasn't able to find it in any of the standard references and so I submitted it to RPC. As of this morning, it has been added as the exemplar of the issue! It's an obverse die match to RPC IV.3, 10438 (temporary).

Crispina, 178-182 CE.

Rev: ϹΙΔΗΤΩΝ, Tyche standing facing, head left, holding rudder and cornucopiae.
Refs: RPC IV.3, 25074 (temporary); BMC --; Mionnet --; Sear GIC --; Lindgren I --; Wiczay --.

Congratulations on the rare find, @Roman Collector

Although not a Faustina, or Side, this one is from Pamphylia, and like yours, it seems to be unpublished, except for the Wildwinds example.  Perhaps I should submit it to RPC?
