Carthage, 300 AD. AR argenteus, 3.45 gr., 18 mm.
Obv: MAXIMIANUS AUG, laureate bust of Maximian to the right.
Rev: XC VI in two lines surrounded by laurel wreath, in centre: pellet.
Ref: RIC 15b.
Very rare. Beautiful old cabinet tone. Extremely fine.
From the David Miller collection, collector’s ticket included.
Assigned to Carthage in RIC, though having no mint mark to prove this, it has since been postulated that this type might better be attributed to the mint at Rome due to stylistic parallels and the chance find in an English hoard of a piece with PR in the reverse exergue.
