I bought an interesting cast coin today. I will post that coin when it arrives. This coin was an adder. I saw it in the Roman Imperial section and thought it looked interesting. Roman Empire; Gallienus; 253-268 AD; AE antoninianus. Rome mint, struck A.D. 267-268. Obverse – Radiate head R, GAL[LIENV]S AVG Rev - Hippocamp swimming right, NEPT [VNO CONS AVG], below N Weight 2.63 grams Diameter 19 mm Green patina with some silvering, some of legend missing, otherwise SPL RIC 245 RSC 668 Cohen 667 I found about 50 examples on line. Most sold for modest prices ($10 - $100), but a few high grade, well struck and centered examples sold for over $200. Mine hammered for 7 Euros, or $10 - $15 with vig, but no postage. I noted only letter, N, below the Hippocamp. A similar coin has either S or H below a Capricorn, right. I did not notice any exergue lines. Capricorns and Hippocamps are similar animals. The Capricorn has horns like a goat and the Hippocamp does not. Some interesting comments from descriptions on acsearch: One of the rare secondary reverse types in Gallienus' animal series: a hippocamp not a capricorn is usually associated with the legend naming Neptune. - Gemini, LLC; Auction XI; Lot 499; 1/12/14 Reverse translation: 'Neptuno Conservatori Augusti', (To Neptune the protector of the august). - http://www.cgbfr.com/ The engraving of the officina mark, 'N', is so poorly done that it appears to be a 'III'-- a common occurrence at Rome during this time period. - CNG web shop This is my second Hippocamp this year: Post your hippocamps, capricorns, and other neat animals.
