Mint: Antioch (Antakya, Turkey)
Abbreviation: AN, ANT
Roman imperial coinage was struck at Antioch from as early as the reign of Augustus. It is also perhaps the most likely source of many silver denarii struck during the 2nd to 3rd centuries (often referred to as being struck at an eastern mint) and distinguished from issues struck at Rome on the basis of style. The mint continued to produce gold, silver and copper alloy coins throughout the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. Coins of the Antioch mint struck in the 4th century (and distinguished by an AN or ANT mintmark) are rare as UK finds.
