    Fantastic reverse!

    I've kept up with the last pages of additions and the "individual cities shown by a CoinTalker" count is now 276, or ~42% of Roman provincial cities that issued coins.

    Ha! I bought another coin of the same town at the same auction in order to show it on CoinTalk. But it has yet to come in.

    And Titiopolis, too. I might as well post the coin I won (that hasn't come in, so far) that is a premiere on CoinTalk for the town of Colybrassus in Cilicia. Besides, for my collection, it is the first of the Empress Tranquillina (what a beautiful name), the wife of young Emperor Gordian III. My 90th Roman sovereign.

    At present, Colybrassus is a nameless field of ruins in mountainous Turkey, 15 miles north of Alanya (=Coracesium, mentioned above!). Here's a picture of the landscape only a few miles from Colybrassus.

    Colybrassus.jpg

    CILICIA. Colybrassus. Tranquillina (Augusta, 241-244). AE18. Obv: Draped bust to the right. CAB TPANKVΛΛЄINA. Rev. Hermes standing left, holding purse and caduceus. KOΛVBPACCЄΩN.18 mm, 3.07 gr. Ziegler 44; SNG BN 551; SNG Levante 338. Ex Dr. P. Vogl Collection; ex auction Bankhaus Aufhäuser 4, lot 417 (7 October 1987).

    Thanks TIF, I'm glad I won that Commodus quietly... I really like it!

    I'm surprised that Celsa hasn't been covered with one of these:

    I overlooked this post, sorry! Celsa has now been checked off the database, thanks! :) Koinon Macedonia had been shown. What a great example of the type though!

    Koinon (the confederation) is checked off but the mint city... Beroia or Beroea (or Berea) is/was unchecked on the list! ...at least I hope I have the right city!
