L Papius Denarius Serratus - New symbol pair

Obv: Head of Juno Sospita right, wearing goat skin tied under chin. Behind head, Dolphin wrapped around anchor.
Rev: Gryphon running right; in ex., L. PAPI.; in field, Hippocamp
Minted in Rome from . B.C. 79.
Reference(s) RSC Papia 1. RRC 384/1. RCTV 311.

This is a previously unknown symbol pair.

The website:-
http://www.bonannocoins.com/l_papius/l_papius_db.php
lists all the RRC symbols along with several others that have come to light since.

I have had confirmation from James Bonanno and Richard Schaefer that this is a previously unknown symbol pair. This coin has been added to the above website.



Regards,
Martin

Hi Alex,
Yes those are the symbols in question. Crawford illustrates 211 symbol pairs in RRC and a few more pairs have come to light since then bringing the current known number of symbol pairs to over 230. The symbols are engraved on a pair of dies that are used together as a pair and don't seem to have been mixed with other dies.
Regards,
Martin
