    Description

    CAPPADOCIA. Caesarea. Gaius 'Caligula' (AD 37-41). AR drachm (18mm, 3.51 gm, 12h).  Struck ca. AD 37-8. C. CAESAR AVG GERMANICVS, bare head of Caligula right / IMPERATOR. PONT. MAX. AVG. TR. POT., lituus and simpulum. RIC 63. RPC 3624. Very Rare. Nearly Extremely Fine.

    RIC considers Caesarea in Cappadocia to be a regular Imperial, as opposed to Provincial, mint during the Julio-Claudian era. Silver drachms and didrachms were struck with Latin legends and seemed to be directly interchangeable with Roman denominations. Starting with Vespasian, Caesarea switched to Greek legends and the mint is classified as "Provincial."
