I am still quite new at Roman Provincials, and am at the bottom of a long learning curve. Just got this one, an Augustus from Philippi (maybe). It has a countermark which I was actually able to track down, though it wasn't easy. The rather blotchy patina makes it a bit hard to see, but it looks to be a fairly respectable specimen based on the others I've seen online. I was hoping more experienced collectors could provide additional information, and answer two questions I had: 1. My example seems rather heavy for this issue (5.69 grams), although the diameter is about the same (mine is rather thick). Is this normal? Is it a "semis" as it is sometimes called? 2. Are those priests or colonists plowing? Different sources have different descriptions. Or are these different types altogether? Also, please share any other examples! I really like this type, now that I have one in hand. Found a nice one on FORVM (where I got most of my information, though I cross-checked as much as I could elsewhere) http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=546&pos=331 Here is mine, with an "enhanced" countermark view (my "TR" is similar, but not the same as the 2 other examples I could find; my R has a more closed-up loop): Augustus Æ 15 (Semis) (27 B.C.-14 A.D.)
