maridvnvm Posted August 21, 2022 · Member Share Posted August 21, 2022 This is only the third slabbed coin that I have ever bought. I generally avoid them but I broke one of my own guidelines in this case. Obv:– IMP CAE L SEP SEV PERT AVG, laureate head right Rev:– BONAE SPET.., Spes standing holding flower and lifting skirt. Minted in Emesa. A.D. 193 Reference(s) – Cohen -. RIC - (cf. 351A, ). BMCRE - (cf 334a). RSC - RIC 351A is BONAE SPES cited from Numismatic Chronicle 1896, p. 203, Plate 13. RIC 351A coin comes from the Brickendonbury hoard from 1895 and can be seen t confirm the BONAE SPEI reading. BMCRE 334a is also BONAE SPEI citing T.T. Caistor 1947. The BONAE SPET legend is also known from a single example from the AVG II C issue but from a different reverse die. 12 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
