zoom view

Denomination : Bronze Antoninianus.  

Mint
: Barbarous imitatives like this are generally from the Northern frontier regions of the Roman Empire, including Britain.

Date : Tetricus II was Caesar from from AD 273 to 274, but these imitatives may date any time from then to slightly later in the 3rd century

Reference : The prototype coin is Sear 11292.

Size : 16.0 x 17.0 mm.  Weight : 2.05 grams.

Grade : Fine.

Obverse : Radiate bust of Tetricus II right, the inscription is barbarous but one can see that it starts with IV SVE TETRICVS CAES.  The style of the portrait is very close to the original coins of Tetricus, but the spelling of the first part of the inscription should have read C PIV ESV  but has been corrupted to IV SVE.

Reverse: Spes walking left and holding a flower, with SPES AVGG around.  The style of the reverse is pretty close to the original coins.
