..i collect'em but...it's a mystery 2 me 2...
Well.. Care to explain?
It's supposed to say VABALATHVS V C R IMP D R over the portrait of Vabalathus (the laureate bust) and it says IMP C AVRELIANVS AVG on both sides. Here's my non-error version:
Vabalathus, AD 270-272 and Aurelian, AD 270-275.
Roman billon antoninianus, 3.58 gm, 20.4 mm, 5 h.
Antioch, late AD 270-spring 272.
Obv: VABALATHVS V C R IMP D R, laureate, draped and cuirassed bust of Vabalathus, right.
Rev: IMP C AVRELIANVS AVG, radiate and cuirassed bust of Aurelian right; officina mark Є below.
Refs: RIC 381; CBN 1248; Cohen 1; MIR 353; RCV 11718.
ah, thank you for educating us non Valbaathus coin owners RC....
Here is another way to spell it
V H A B A L A T H U S
Separate names with a comma.
