205, Lot: 424. Estimate $100.
Sold for $272. This amount does not include the buyer’s fee.

Fausta. Augusta, AD 324-326. Æ Follis (19mm, 3.68 g, 12h). Antioch mint, 1st officina. Struck AD 326. Draped bust right / Empress or Salus standing facing, head left, holding two children; •SMANTA. RIC VII -; LRBC -. Good VF, black patina, some earthen deposits.

Neither RIC nor LRBC record an issue for Fausta with the pellet before the mintmark. There is an issue recorded for Helena with the pellet, but RIC dates this issue to AD 327-329. With this coin for Fausta, the issue for Helena should probably be re-dated to AD 326.
