Siliqua of Arcadius AD 383 - 408


Obverse:- Diademed,draped & cuirassed bust right. DN ARCAPI - VS PF AVG. Reverse:- Roma seated left on cuirass, holding Victory on globe & sceptre. VIRTVS RO - MANORVM in exergue TRPS (2nd Officina Treveri - Trier). RIC Vol IX No 106c See Seaby Bulletin No 816 December 1986 C582(This Coin). Ex Holway Hoard No 395 in the inventory prepared by Roger Bland & Steve Minnitt and published by British Museum Publications in The Normanby Hoard & other Roman Coin Hoards 1988. Nine examples of this type are recorded from Holway, eight off (Nos 387 to 394) are retained in Taunton Castle Museum - this coin in my collection is No 395 in the Inventory. In my view this is one of the finest Siliqua portraits of Arcadius I have seen - it must have found its' way into the Hoard within a matter of a few weeks or months from minting.
