    Portrait doesn't look like him - I would start searching under Claudius first.

    you made the right call - here's the RPC entry, and another example.

    Sulla80. Thank you very much. Apparently this coin is not rare?

    You raise a long discussion about "what is rare"? RPC shows 21 specimen. Let's say there are 100 in the world altogether - is that rare?

    If there are only 100 of them in the world, then in my opinion this is rare.

    You may enjoy this thread from BenSi and this article from David Hendin and Arthur Houghton: "Defining Rarity in Seleucid and Ancient Jewish Coinages". The authors ask, "Can one devise a concept approach to rarity values that can be applied to all ancient coinages?"

    Sulla80. Thank you very much. If coins are rare, then they are rare.
    And how many pieces of such coins should be in order to be recognized as rare, I do not know.
