three emperors

Hi,

I have seen this coin on ebay UK today and I found it enough unusual to present it to you.

bronze, 8.1 gr, 23 mm

That is the first roman coin with three busts side by side that I have ever seen; there are probably other examples ???

it is probably a fake; the seller, from Bulgaria, does not garantee the authenticity

I hope you like it,

cheers,

Roland

as a rule, on eBay, never buy from a seller located in Bulgaria!

The picture is great and the history behind the coin very interesting: a good example of subtle roman propaganda !

Thanks for the link and the comments.
