unpublished? provincial of Gallienus

Recommended Posts

The dealer described this Gallienus provincial as being possibly unpublished.  I bought it because it interested me.  This was really the 'throw-in' of the lot.  Aside from Severan-era Balkan provincials, Alexandrian issues, and certain Antiochene issues, I really don't heavy collect Roman provincials. 

I've been on an Antonianus kick lately. While the silvered Ant's don't really interest me, the 'silver' ones are fun.  Silver coins from this dealer tend to be very bright, but that doesn't greatly bother me with common Antoninianii.  The Trebonianus Gallus is my favorite of the lot.

Are mini-flips a European thing?  I've been noticing that a couple of European dealers have been using these mini's lately.

The Antioch mint went downhill rapidly after Philip.  The last ones of Trebonianus Gallus look terrible.
