Lot 358.  Mesopotamia, Edessa. Caracalla. A.D. 198-217. Æ.

Mesopotamia, Edessa. Caracalla. A.D. 198-217. Æ (12 mm, 1.92 g, 2 h). Laureate, draped and cuirassed bust of Caracalla right / Baetyle surmounted by an inverted crescent. Dandrow pl. 23, 15 (same dies). Extremely rare - the third known example.

E. Dandrow, ""The Latin coins of Caracalla from Edessa,"" NC (2016), p. 198, note 18, documents the two previously known examples of this extremely rare and interesting coin: one specimen in the Bibliothèque Nationale, M 5509, the other ex MMAG 20, 959. Our coin is struck from the same dies as both examples.
