Unlisted Aurelian As?

    Hi all!

    I bought this coin in a very small lot on eBay, thinking it was a denarius of Aurelian. However, when it arrived, it was much bigger than expected, so I think it's probably an as.

    However, the mintmark is a bit unusual on the coin; with the visible part appearing to be SA, which I can't seem to find anywhere else (all the ones on Wildwinds have just one letter, or none at all)

    Is this an unlisted coin, or is there a reference I'm missing?

    Thanks!

    Are you sure there really is a A after the S ? Also my old copy of RIC is almost 90 years old...

    I think so. There's definitely something there. (Maybe it's a delta instead?). The S is also quite far on the left

    Seemingly your coin is unknown on ric.mom.fr , the best database on the subject as far as I know.
    With a better photo, g, mm, and axis, you could have the pleasure to see your unique coin on the Net, and to partipate to this work. :cat:

    I own one Aureliano similar with the SA mintmark
