I have to post this again, cuz it is one of my favorites... Campania, Capua Bronze circa 216-211, Æ 14.5mm., 2.35g. Obv: Diademed and veiled bust of Hera r.; lotus-tipped sceptre over shoulder. Rev: KAPV in oscan character Grain ear; in r. field, tripod-like object. Ref: SNG France 517. SNG ANS 219. Historia Numorum Italy 500 Campania From the collection of EE Clain Stefanelli Ex: Naville Numismatics Comments: When Hannibal came through Italia, he promised the Capuan Magistrates that Capua would become the capital of Italia should he destroy Rome. Obviously, the Roman Republic prevailed in the Second Punic War. Since Capua sided with Hannibal, all coins, and anything that Capua created to popularize Hannibal were destroyed, melted down, etc. Makes Capuan coins scarcer from this Era.
