GregH Posted July 20, 2022 · Member Share Posted July 20, 2022 Hi all I'm very happy to have FINALLY upgraded an emperor who defies upgrading: Quintillus. Coins of his are mostly heavily debased, poorly struck, miserable and barbarous - like my old example: And here's the new one - from a pedigree going back to the 1960s: Denomination: Silvered antoninianus (21mm, 4.07g)Mint: CyzicusObverse: IMP QVINTILLVS P F AVG Radiate, draped and cuirassed bust of Quintillus to right; below bust: • Reverse: FORTVNA REDVX Fortuna standing front, head to left, holding rudder set on globe in her right hand and cornucopiae in her left Reference: Cohen -. RIC 83. RIC V online 1265.18 (this coin). Provenance: Leu Auction 21 Lot 5029 Jul 2022; From the collection of Dipl.-Ing. Adrian Lang, ex Münzen & Medaillen GmbH 13, 9 October 2003, 786 and Kress 131, 16 November 1964, 787 Yes there is some gunk stuck to it - i'll see what can be done to remove it. If anyone is interested in my old Quintillus, let me know. I will place it in the Coin Cabinet shortly at a reasonable price. 25 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
