Time of Vespasian Æ17, 2.86g Sardis mint, 69-79 AD Obv: ΙƐΡΑ ϹΥΝΚΛΗΤ(ΟϹ); Draped bust of Senate, r. Rev: ϹΑΡΔΙΑΝΩΝ; Temple with four columns RPC 1309 (1 spec.). Acquired from David Connors, August 2021. The mint of Sardis in Asia minor had previously struck coins for the Julio-Claudians. This undated small bronze most likely was struck sometime during Vespasian's reign (although a Second Century date cannot be ruled out). The obverse features a draped bust of the Holy Senate with the reverse showing an anonymous temple. The weight indicates this piece's likely value as 1/2-assarion. Does anyone else have a coin from Sardis or featuring a personification of the Senate? If so, I'd love to see it!
