    I purchased one once, an outstanding example which turned out to be fake a few years later when we started to know more about pressed fakes. Now, I see it as obvious but it fooled quite a bunch of folks at the time. The discussion about it is here

    Is "unmoderating" a hole a term of art? It's new to me!

    Lol! Oh, yes. All the foremost European collectors have been unmoderating coins for decades ;) No idea how autocorrect gives me words sometimes?

    Hanniballianus Caesar
    Æ Nummus
    Euphrates seated
    Constantinople mint, CONSS Rex Regum of Pontos
    RIC 147
    COMMENT: He was elevated by Constantine to the rank of Rex Regum of the Pontic people, but soon after killed in the family purge instigated by Constantine's sons. That's why his legend reads HANNIBALLIANO REGI
