ancientart:



Roman coins found during excavations on the site of the former County Hospital, Dorchester, England.


Shown 1st is a reverse of Julia Mamaea (222-235 AD), the 2nd is a reverse of a Valentinian II coin showing Victory walking with a wreath in her hand, and the 3rd, Allectus 293-296/7 AD. Next is Carausius 286-293 AD, Vespasian 69-79 AD, and the final coin is a reverse of Nummus of Flavius Victor (387-388 AD). The mintmark on this coin is for Trier, and it is of the Spes Romanorum type, depicting a camp gate.

A lighter week this week and next, because I have applications due in early February. Sorry, everyone.
