    Hi all!

    I bought this coin recently, but am having trouble finding a precise attribution.

    It is an antoninianus of Gallienus, PAX AVG reverse, V in right field (this quite faint). The obverse is radiate, draped, curiassed bust facing left, holding spear and shield.

    The closest one I can find is this coin, which was sold by CNG back in 2019

    "Gallienus. AD 253-268. Antoninianus (20.5mm, 2.24 g, 4h). Rome mint, 5th officina. 6th issue, AD 260-261. GALLIENVS AVG, radiate, draped, and cuirassed bust left, viewed from front, holding spear and shield / PAX AVG, Pax standing left, holding olive branch and transverse sceptre; V in left field. MIR 36, 366t; RIC V (sole reign) 256; Cunetio 969; Normanby –; Chalfont –. VF, porous, flan crack. Extremely rare, only one noted by MIR (the Cunetio piece, now in BM)."

    However, that coin has the V in the left field, rather than the right field. Would my coin (which is a very minor variation), have its own attribution? If yes, does anyone have any ideas what that is?

    Thanks!
