NINICA-CLAUDIOPLOIS, MAXIMINUS AE,  235 - 238 C.E.

SNG Levante 619, SNG Fr. 792, Very Fine, 29.9mm, 13.68 grams

Obverse: Laureate, cuirassed and draped bust of Maximinus to right, several countermarks

Reverse: Founder plowing to right with bull and ox, aquila in background

Lovely bust of the emperor on a larger and heavier than usual flan!

This type usually has one or two countermarks, this coin has four! All have been carefully applied in the fields or near the rim to avoid interference with the coins' designs.
