Coin of the Month

May 2016: CNT_762

Also the Staatliche Münzsammlung in Munich is contributing their Thracian coins to CNT. Our coin of the Month from Munich comes from Byzantion and is dated 209-212 AD. On the obverse Caracalla is depicted with a radiate crown, he and Geta are standing on the reverse facing each other on both sides of a prize crown. They are wearing togas and holding a scroll each, while clasping hands. Via clicking the ‘combination’ button you will get an overview of all coins already in CNT with the same obverse and reverse. At the moment we are online with six coins and casts of this combination (http://www.corpus-nummorum.eu/coins.php?dieV=973&dieR=978), among them pieces from Berlin, London, Sankt Petersburg and Paris. Maybe in your collection is another one? Further you will find out via the functions of CNT that the obverse also could be connected to a lot of different reverses e.g. showing the emperor in military dress galloping on a horse or standing in a quadriga.
