Vespasian Æ As, 14.85g Antioch mint, undated Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIAN AVG; Head of Vespasian, laureate, l. Rev S • C in laurel wreath RPC 2009 (15 spec.). Acquired from eBay, January 2020. In the mid 70s the Antioch mint struck a series of leaded bronze coins with Latin legends. Presumably the Antiochene series picked up where the Rome mint orichalcum 'Syrian' issue struck in 74 left off. They can be distinguished from the Rome issues by the local style, 12 o'clock die axis, and metal. This As likely dates between 76-78 and is very close in style to the contemporary Cypriot tetradrachms struck at Antioch. I really love the portrait style these coins tend to have. This 'bull-necked' Vespasian is a superb example of the Antiochene engravers' finest style. Do you have any provincials with Latin legends?
