Denomination : Billon tetradrachm. Mint : Alexandria.

Date : year 13, AD 66 to 67

Reference : Milne-251, Sear-2007, Emmett-113

Size : 22.8 x 23.4 mm. Weight : 12.35 grams.

Grade : VF, good silver appearance, but just slightly grainy surfaces


Obverse
: Head of Nero left, with NERW KLAU KAIS SEB GER AU around (parts of some letters are off the flan).

Reverse : Head of Augustus right, with QEOS SEBASTOS around (only the middle part of the inscription is fully on the flan).

It would be rather unusual to fine one of these with fully visible inscriptions, and the partial inscriptions on this specimen are pretty typical of how these are seen.

Sear list this type for Year-17 as Sear-3740.
