Lot # 388 - Auction is closed.Estimate: US$200 / Price Realized: US$1400
Trajan. AE 34
Trajan. AE 34, 20.53g. (12h). Year 14 = 110/1 AD. Bust laureate, draped right, seen from side / Sarapis standing facing, crowned by Heracles standing behind him; on left, Apollo (?) standing facing beside altar, raising right hand above head. RPC 4539 (2 spec.). Stated to be ex Dattari Collection, but not illustrated in Dattari-Savio. Pitted areas below emperorís chin and at top of reverse. Fine.

"Confirmation required" according to RPC, since the authors could only cite an unseen specimen reported to have been in the Curtis Collection, plus Dattari 1032 (Dattari-Savio, pl. 50), on which the date is illegible, and which is from different dies than ours.
