EGYPT, Alexandria. Claudius II Gothicus

year 3, CE 269/70

tetradrachm, 20 mm, 10.2 gm

Obv: AVTKKΛAVΔIOCCEB (In theory: what I can read on this coin doesn't quite match what the legend is supposed to be.  Probably just engraver error or die deterioration); laureate head right

Rev: Tyche standing left with rudder and cornucopia; L Γ in left field

Ref: Emmett 3896 (3), R4

My favorite find from a large mixed lot, Stack's Bowers Nov. 2013.  Tyche is rendered in a particularly artistic manner.

Translation of legend abbreviations:


Imperator Caesar Claudius Augustus


year 3
