Vespasian AE 21 ANTIOCHIA



Vespasian AE21, struck in or shipped to Antioch 73-74 AD


Obv:


IMP VESP AVG PM TP
Laureate head of Vespasian left



Rev:


ANTIOCHIA
Turreted and draped bust of Tyche right



This is a very interesting coin, probably at least partially responsible for the reassignment of these eastern AE issues to Antioch as opposed to Commagene, where they had long thought to belong. Note the Flavian looking features on the bust of Tyche.
