Quincunx. 212-195BC. 7.43grams. Luceria mint. Anonymous. Crawford 099/04 P. Obverse: hd Apollo r, P behind. Reverse: Dioscuri right, ROMA, ooooo. Rare.

Quincunx, a rare Roman denomination although commoner in Italian city coinage. Note the unusual reverse type, the dioscuri rather than the normal prow. This coin is discussed on andrewmccabe.ancients.info/History.html
