About this seller
Notes:Aug 19, 12 - The mint mark on the reverse is missing from this coin making full attribution impossible. I think Alexandria can be ruled out as a potential mint for the coin based on stylistic issues. That still leaves Heraclea, Cyzicus, Nicomedia, Siscia and Antioch as possibilities.

The seller of this coin, H*O*A*R*D also sells on eBay as Land-Of-Kush. He is notorious for false advertising and misleading claims in his auctions. This coin was received as part of a group of 20 coins that were supposed to have been unclean. They were actually cleaned late Roman bronze coins that had been "re-dirted" (re-covered with mud after being cleaned). I feel lucky that I actually received genuine coins.
