THESSALY, Magnetes. Augustus. 27 BC-AD 14. Æ Assarion (16mm, 5.46 g, 12h). CEBACTOC, head right / [MAΓΝΗΤΩΝ], the centaur Chiron advancing right, branch over the left shoulder, right hand extended forward; below, dolphin. Rogers 362, fig. 184; RPC 1421. Brown surfaces with remnants of green patina. Near Fine.

Ex BCD Collection (Triton XV, 3 January 2012), lot 426.2; purchased from Frank Kovacs, June 1980, for $25.

“This writer is not convinced that the reverse of this coin reads MAΓΝΗΤΩΝ. It seems more likely that it reads CEBACTOC in which case Rogers’ suspicions would be verified and the coin assigned to Claudius. The type is so rare - and in such poor condition when it appears - that the matter may take a very long time until it is resolved.” [BCD]
