£800.00
Luceria, Roman Republic. An anonymous issue silver Victoriatus, dated between 211-208 BC, with a head of Jupiter facing right to the obverse. The reverse shows the standing figure of Victory placing a wreath on a large trophy. On this coin an ‘L’ appears in-between the figure and the trophy, indicates that it was struck at the Luceria mint in the northern Apennines. These silver coins appear at the same as the silver denarius though in a different metal composition and had a weight roughly equivalent to a drachm or half nomos. There was a great need for silver coinage in Rome at the time as the city needed to pay its allies in the Second Punic War. They were primarily used to pay soldiers in Greek-speaking southern Italy. This is a highly graded example of an interesting coin. A great addition to any collection.
