266/2 Cassia Dodrans C.CASSI. Vulcan with pileus tongs Prow Sooo AM#0814-13

Dodrans. 126BC. 13.18grams. Rome mint. Cassia. Crawford 266/02 C.CASSI. Obverse: hd Vulcan r pileus tongs, Sooo. Reverse: prow r, C.CASSI, Sooo. Scarce.

Dodrans, or 9 uncia or 3/4 as, a very unusual denomination, struck only briefly. The reasons for its issue are unknwown. It is in a remarkably fine state of preservation - the reverse in particular is quite fresh and unworn.
