    Description

    SYRIA. Seleucis and Pieria. Antioch (?). Nero and Divus Claudius (AD 54-68). AR tetradrachm (26mm, 14.82 gm, 12h). Struck AD 63-68. NERO CLAVD DIVI CLAVD F CAESAR AVG GER, laureate head of Nero night, star behind / DIVOS CLAVD AVG GERMANIC PATER AVG, laureate head of Claudius right. McAlee 270. Prieur 48. RPC I 4123 (Uncertain Syrian mint). Reverse a bit double-struck, otherwise Very Fine.

    From The Andre Constantine Dimitriadis Collection.

    The mint location for this large series of tetradrachms with Latin legends has long puzzled numismatists, with speculation ranging from Caesarea in Cappadocia to Tyre in Phoenicia. The style and fabric conform to the major Syrian mint of Antioch, but Latin legends are usually found only on bronzes struck in the city. Prieur tentatively assigns the issue to a "second mint" of Antioch.
