    I wanted to join the Siscian symbol club and got this weet ae.

    Constans, AE of Siscia. AD 337-350. DN CONSTA-NS PF AVG, pearl diademed, draped, cuirassed bust right / FEL TEMP REPARATIO, radiate phoenix standing right on rocky mound. Mintmark delta SIS[SYM4] (like a Y). RIC VIII Siscia 241.


    The next one is a FH I have 2 duplicates of, but really liked the portrait and reverse style and needed to get it (was cheap though).

    Thankfully both arrived now since all of Flagstaff is under a state on emergency and at pre-evacuation (some parts already evacuating) but the fire crews are being aggressive and hopefully rain Tuesday will help.


    My drive to work:

    Sorry about the fires! Very nice coins. I'm curious, do you buy them online or do you have a dealer?

    Stay safe Randy. I am not looking forward to our fire season which starts in September. I live in the hills with lots of big trees and brush which is highly incendiary. Congrats on the new additions to your collection.

    Ken Dorney Yea, I'm Cool That Way...

    Where do you live? One year ago today we had a huge fire rip through town and surrounding countryside. The hills still look like the Apocalypse happened. Another small town here (named Paradise) also burned almost completely to the ground. Last I heard the population of that town is still down 90% (about 30,000 people before the fire).

    Thanks All. The fire (2600 acres) is about 10% contained now and the fire area got about 1.5 inches of rain. My side of town is not as threatened as before thankfully but we have to watch out for flash floods now in my neighborhood.

    Unfortunately yes. Had a fire closed to where this one is now, and a few years before that was another close one but this fire was for sure the closest to town in a while.

    Got these both online, but the local shop has some as well.

    I live in Flagstaff, population of about 73,000.

    I really like that Siscian piece, Randy, and I'd like to talk about it and the markings. But not in this thread. The fire looms too large for me to do that. I fell in love with Flagstaff the year we spent in Arizona on my internship in the 70s. It is frightening to see the threats to you. May God preserve you all.

    Once again, stay safe! I'm sure the rain helped but it still seems a bit scary.
