Rome. GEM, helmeted head of Roma right; below chin, denomination mark
/ M . ABVRI, Sol driving, head facing, holding reins and whip, galloping quadriga right; in exergue, ROMA.
Crawford 250/1. Sydenham 487. Aburia 6.
Deeply struck from fresh dies in imperfect metal. An absolute gem, it even says so on the coin!
NGC MS 4/5 – 4/5.
The moneyer is thought to be a descendant of M. Aburius, who was tribune of the plebs in 187 BC. Although Jupiter most commonly rides in the quadriga on Roman Republican denarii, here he has been replaced by a figure of Sol, the sun god. As the coin was struck in 132 BC, it is tempting to think that Sol here is used as a symbol for the East. In 133 BC, the kingdom of Pergamon was bequeathed to the Roman people. This kingdom became the first Roman province in Asia.Current bid: $110.00Time leftCurrent bid: $110.00

Of the highest rarity and possibly one of finest specimen known. Struck in high relief on a large flan.
Helmeted head of Roma r.; behind, X. Rev. The Dioscuri galloping r.;
below, ROMA totally incuse on tablet. Sydenham 166. Crawford 45/1. We believe that, logically speaking, this denarius must be the first to have been struck. It is reasonable to assume that this new issue would start with a totally incuse legend, moving to a partially incuse one, before settling on a legend in relief. Our assumption is corroborated by two features: the style and the flan diameter of the very few specimens known, among which this is by far the best.
The rare fully incuse ROMA issue is often confused with the relatively common semi-incuse denarius.
