    I picked this up last week as well. It’s rough but an unusual and weird design, fairly rare and a connection to Pompey.

    Here is my most recent. It is from the current batch of uncleaned and I finished it this morning. This coin, like many in the current batch, has heavy silver on the surface. These are very difficult to clean without removing the silver. It also restricts the amount of detail I can expose.

    Hope you like it.

    Constantine AE follis. 321-324 AD. CONSTANTINVS AVG, laureate head right. / DN CONSTANTINI MAX AVG, VOT XX in wreath. Mintmark BSIS sunburst.

    Hi All,

    I don't collect these but it was a snack I could not resist for under $28 with all S&H included.

    As far as I know the 2001 Hesperia article by Camp & Kroll ("The Agora Mint and Athenian Bronze Coinage"), is the latest on Athenian bronzes. JSTOR link is here. If you know of any newer research please let me know. Thanks!
