    Hello friends collectors of old coins!

    I am writing an article on a particular siliqua struck by the Antioch mint for Valens during its decennalia. It is the issue in • ANA.
    The particularity of this issue is that the only 4 known siliquas are all of the same dies of observe and reverse. The hypothesis that I wish to verify is the belonging of these 4 coins to the same treasure discovered in its time. So can you help me to verify this and :

    1 - DO YOU HAVE a silique of this issue yourself and if so, can you send me a picture?

    2 - Do you have information on a treasure of siliqua from which perhaps these 4 specimens would come?

    Many thanks for your help.

    Man, I had to dig in a thread from way back in 2015 to find my coin and info. I need to start shifting back to Siliqua one of these days.

    Is it one of those great coins that Marc Walter was offering on Vcoins? 2015 was probably a peak year for the quality of his inventory.

    I believe so.
    Seems like an entire lifetime now, doesn't it?!

    [QUOTE = "Ocatarinetabellatchitchix, message: 4598027, membre: 99554"] Avez-vous vérifié la recherche Ac? Il y a 4 exemples, peut-être pas les mêmes que les vôtres. [/ CITATION]
    They are the same. Thanks

    I wrote an article about a coin just like this that turned out to have no silver at all. I don't remember the mint however.
