Ex BCD Collection (Triton XV, 3 January 2012), lot 981 (hammer $1200).

“This is the first Thessalian Geta this writer ever acquired; it appeared in the 60s as part of an old collection. To find a coin of an Emperor not even mentioned in Rogers was a revelation and at the same time a reminder that no book on ancient Greek coins can be complete, no matter how narrow is the subject treated. What has been really surprising though is that the coin still remains unique, at least to this writer’s knowledge and up to the time of writing.” [BCD]
