    No great rarity here....

    This coin came by way of eBay. It is quite readily available, across this and other emperors, and comes in a wide range of condition. I'd say this example is somewhere in the middle of the continuum, and a relatively good value at $6.99 (the postage was more than the cost of the coin, which often happens in the venue).

    Roman Empire, 244/5 AD
    Moesia Superior, Viminacium
    AE 30
    Philip I (244-249 AD)

    Basically a sestertius of Viminacium. Nice find and the price was right.
