EASTERN EUROPE, Uncertain Tribe. AR Denarius (18mm, 2.82 g, 12h). Uncertain obverse prototype, reverse type of C. Postumius. After 74 BC. Crude head right / Hound right. Davis D/Ia (website AL5); cf. Crawford 394/1 (for rev.). VF, toned.

From the RBW Collection. Ex Phillip Davis Collection (Gemini IX, 8 January 2012), lot 698.

From the Gemini sale: “Classified as ‘anomalous’ because of its strong resemblance to Eraviscan coins in style, fabric, weight, and type selection, although it is not represented in the Eraviscan hoards or die sequences. I think it’s quite possible that it is Eraviscan, simply very rare.”
