Description

An AE Bronze from Emperor Trajan, the second in the Five Good Emperors of Rome and leading Rome to its territorial height. Featuring the bust of Trajan on the obverse and a quadriga advancing right on the reverse. This coin type is interesting because it was struck for local currency but also assumed to raise fund for a gift to Emperor Trajan after his victory over the Dacians. The countermark on the obverse of the coin is ΔAK which stands for Dacicus (Victorious over the Dacians) which was a title granted to Trajan following his victory in the Dacian War. This coin can also be dated to the years of 101/2 CE because "EN" on the reverse is a year on the Claudia-Leucas local calendar which can be converted to a modern date. A nice green patina covers the surface of the coin making it very eye appealing.
