    I’m trying to pinpoint the attribution of this Caracalla from Serdica Thrace. The original tag indicates a Homonoia reverse with reference Varbanov 2391 R3. I haven’t been able to confirm via web search. If anyone has access I’d love a confirmation and any cross references available.

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

    I just checked. The attribution to 2391 is correct. Varbanov lists 10 varieties of this coin with various bust/legend combinations, all of which are Rarity 3 (500 - 1,000 examples) and Rarity 4 (200 - 500 examples).

    You've had two replies, Johnnie Black, but all good things comes in threes. So here goes. - Globe in right and sceptre in left. Eagle with wreath in beak to left.-

    @Deacon Ray @Ken Dorney @Bert Gedin I can’t thank you all enough for the help. Sorry for the delayed response, I’ve been swamped at work, but this is a nice way to end the day.
