    FDC Numerian

    Numerian. 283-284 AD. Aureus, 4.78g (6h). Siscia. Obv: IMP C NVMERIANVS P F AVG Bust laureate, cuirassed right, seen from front, clasp and fold of cloak on right shoulder. Rx: ABVNDAN - TIA AVGG Abundantia standing left, emptying cornucopia with both hands. RIC 45, pl. VIII.11 (same dies). Calicó 4298 (without photograph). Cohen 2 (Rollin, 200 Fr.). Truly a first rate coin, completely flawless. FDC.

    From the Ratto Collection, according to the present owner's ticket.

    Apparently very rare, probably fewer than six specimens known. None in Berk photofile, and Calicó could find no photograph to use in his aureus catalogue. Not in the d'Amécourt, Montagu, or Biaggi Collections. RIC illustrates a BM specimen, from the same dies as ours, and also gives the weight of another specimen. CoinArchives Pro yields only one further example, again from the same dies as ours: Goldberg 55, 29 October 2009, lot 197.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
