KINGS of BOSPORUS. Rhescuporis IV, with Gallienus. Circa AD 242/3-276/7. BI Stater (20mm, 7.53 g, 12h). Dated BE 561 (AD 264/5). Diademed and draped bust of Rhescuporis right; trident to right / Laureate and draped bust of Gallienus right; I (mark of value) to right, AΞΦ (date) below. MacDonald 620/3; Frolova p. 161 and plates XV-XVI (uncertain dies); Anokhin 712a. Toned, scratches, porosity. Near VF. Rare.

Unlike the previous year in which two imperial portraits appear on the reverse, MacDonald cites two reverse types for this year: one with two imperial portraits, the other with only one. This single portrait – that of Gallienus – suggests the news of Valerian’s death in captivity had begun to be reported in the Roman Empire.
