    Description

    Extremely rare issue with pellets on reverse

    Theodosius I (AD 379-395). AV solidus (4.46 gm). NGC AU 5/5 - 4/5. Treveri (Trier), 9 August AD 378-25 August AD 383. D N THEODO-SIVS P F AVG, pearl-diademed, draped and cuirassed bust of Theodosius I right, seen from front / VICTOR-IA AVGG, Gratian and Theodosius I seated facing, enthroned facing, jointly holding globe; Victory behind with spread wings facing, upright palm on ground line between, two vertical pellets in middle right field, pellet in lower right field, TROBC in exergue. RIC IX, 50.

    Note - the pellets in the right field are not noted or documented in standard references, and in fact may simply be artifacts by the celator to give perspective to the throne on some dies, but are described here for accuracy and for future research on die varieties on solidi of this period as they are found (extremely rarely) on other issues. In fact, no examples could be found in sales archives of this issue with pellets.
