Uncertain (AD 96-98) Cistophoric Tetradrachm - Nerva331 viewsNerva, 96-98 AD. AR Cistophoric Tetradrachm (10.07g, 7h). Uncertain Asia Minor (or Rome) mint. Struck 97 AD. Laureate head right / Distyle temple set on four-tiered base; within, cult statue of Augustus standing facing, holding spear, being crowned with wreath by female figure holding cornucopiae; ROMA ET AVG across entablature. VF. While no decisive evidence exists for the location of the mint of the cistophori during the reigns of Vespasian through Trajan, the style, legends, and, in particular, the consistent die axis point to Rome, suggesting that these coins were minted in the capital and then sent to Asia for local use.
Uncertain (AD 77-78) AE 19 - Domitian111 viewsDomitian, as Caesar, struck 77-78 AD. AE19 (3.18g 12h). CAESAR DOMITIANVS AVG F, Laureate head right / COS V PRINC IVVENT, S-C in field; cornucopiae. VF, green patina. Very rare. Tricarico coll.

While some of these “solar disk” drachms are attributable to Rhodes, most of the issues have long been recognized as being psudo-Rhodian issues from mints in Caria. The ME issues had originally been assigned to Megiste, but R. Ashton convincingly argues against this speculative attribution (cf. R. Ashton, “The Coinage of Nisyros” in Travaux Le Rider, p. 16, n. 4).
