Panticapaeum, 'Twin Caps' Issues

Ave!

Greek Black Sea Colony of Panticapaeum

Struck ca. 250-200 B.C.

Ae circa 12mm/1.75, various sizes and weights

Obv/ Head of beardless satyr r., wearing ivy wreath.

Rev/ ΠANTI; Caps of Dioscurio (Castor and Pollix) topped with stars.

Con: EF for the type; 95% have a glossy original dark green patina and are ready to flip.

Ref: MacDonald 146

Seller's Note: Nearly all of these coins have been 'over-struck' in one way or another; IE, on Apollo/Bow in case with ΠAN; Bearless satyr r./Bow and Arrow ΦA; etc., etc. The list goes on and on. Many have been re-struck at other nearby colonies, such as Theodosia, which is very cool for serious collectors.

If you're interested in purchasing these coins in 'bulk' lots, let us know and we'll quote you a lower price.

Remember, half the fun of collecting these coins is just figuering out exactly what they are!
