@Justin Lee! And thank you @Brian Bucklan for such a generous giveaway!
@Brian Bucklan and congratulations to @Justin Lee !!
I'll get one eventually.
Kudos for an exceptionally generous giveaway!
thanks so much for your generosity, Brian!!
@Brian Bucklan , that was such a popular giveaway.
I think it is worth a second run:
I AM INTERESTED!
The coin is on its way to @Justin Lee and he's welcome to do another giveaway with it at some point. For me it was a real pleasure to see the interest it generated as I was hoping, but wasn't sure, it would.
Super well done, Brian.
Absolutely agree, that this coin will either be in my collection or given away in a giveaway whenever that time comes to an end -- I'll definitely pay your generosity forward. Thank you again!
In fact, I'm thinking I might have a giveaway over Labor Day weekend (with a different coin of course) as a way of paying it forward more immediately.
It's got a lovely green patina, really showing it off on the reverse!
Though, I do question the initial identification of Cilicia for it. In looking on ACSearch to try to find more details for a Cilicia coin, I ended up seeing what are better matches for Lokri Opuntii. This fits much better with the lambda visible in the left of the grapes on reverse (possibly too worn to determine if there is an O in the right field).
Appears to be similar to 134.4 and part of Corpus group 20, 19a, and it sounds like "Corpus" is from Locri Opuntii corpus by Mrs. Diana Delbridge.
