This is a crude coin, and it would not win any beauty contests. There's a major flan lamination on obverse, to the point where the metal split actually elevates part of Trajan's head. Beneath that point earthen material was deposited over the centuries, providing a natural bonding agent, thus keeping the leading edge from getting bent or breaking off. Additionally, there are two flan flaws on the reverse. On the plus side, the reverse has a nice depiction of Tyche and the river god doing some laps (perhaps she is his coach). Also, portrait of Trajan, lamination notwithstanding, is nice. So, here is the coin. I would like to get your opinions on it, and any references for this type. I have been unable to locate anything on the Internet. Roman Empire, 110/11 AD Trajan Tridrachm Phoenicia, Tyre Obverse: Trajan facing right Reverse: Tyche, seated, river god swimming below 9.8 grams 24 mm (widest point), 6 h.
