COIN

Unique ID: HAMP-DECD4A

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

A Roman provincial copper-alloy coin of Tabae, Caria (Turkey), dating to the period AD 253-268. The edge of the flan has been bent and damaged. This is probably recent damage, the coin appearing to have been disturbed by dredging activity, which would both account for its patina (from a waterlogged context) and also suggest it is likely a genuine ancient loss.

Obverse: IEPOC ΔHMOC, youthful, laureate, draped bust right; B before.

Reverse: TAB-HNΩN, Tyche standing left holding rudder and cornucopiae.

Cf. BMC 50; see also SNG Copenhagen nos. 546-547; SNG von Aulock no.2711; SNG Tubingen nos. 3497-3498.
