    Description

    Septimius Severus, A.D. 193-211. AE 30 dated year 208 (A.D. 206-207), minted at Amasia in Pontus. Laureate, cuirassed and draped bust right of Septimius Severus/Caracalla and Geta clasping hands, date between. Cf. Waddington p. 41, 51 (same type and date, but year in exergue). VF30 ICG, brown patina.
    For Roman provincial coins there were four main eras useful in dating coins (Seleucid, Pompeian, Caesarean and Actian eras), plus regnal or year-of-reign dating (used primarily at Alexandria in Egypt). In addition, many cities used their own local dating scheme - a complex numismatic study.
    From the Collection of Dr. Joseph M. Seventko. (PCGS# 100464)
