Since I just posted my Trajan tetradrachm with Tyche on the reverse in the Tyche of Antioch thread, I'll post this one here instead:

also recently ordered a tridrachm of trajan... I'm kind of having some buyers regret, impulse purchase I guess you could say. Hope I change my mind when its in hand. Sometimes you just don't know until you see it in RL.
That tridrachm looks really good, and a scarcer denomination as well, for me any buyers regret would be overpaying!
graffito on the obverse. It sold at auction 5 years ago for $480.00. I wonder what it would fetch at auction today ?
@JayAg47! Gotta love 'em chunky-style!!
That's a new word, correct me if i'm wrong but it sent me down a rabbit hole, I guess it means treasure?
Sort of. It's what renaissance and early modern numismatists -- writing in Latin -- called a coin cabinet.
