These intriguing coins (6537 to 6545) are now quite well known, though further variants may of course come to light. They should date from the first half of Trajan’s reign, after the emperor was styled Dacicus, at the end of AD 102. No indication of mint is given, but it is difficult to consider them as part of the regular imperial coinage, and they are not included in Woytek’s book. We have several eastern provenances: the four specimens acquired by Lindgren, the Kovacs specimens which are said to have come from Sophene, the specimen in the AUB collection and the coin 2 discovered in the excavations at Perrhe, in the province of Samosata. The provenances, as well as the typical eastern patina of some specimens, point towards Samosata, Commagene or the northern part of Syria.They represent two denominations (one of 16-17 mm and about 4 g; the other of 13 mm and about 2 g).
