043/3c Luceria L Triens. Italian civic mint. [oooo] / L behind / Minerva; ROMA / Prow / L / oooo. RR ex AM#0973-27, 27g37

Triens. 215-212BC. 27.37grams. Luceria mint. Anonymous. Crawford 043/03c L. Obverse: hd Minerva r, L behind, oooo. Reverse: prow r, L before, oooo, ROMA. Extremely Rare

 

Luceria - there is a letter L behind the head and another in front of the prow. Although worn this is a very rare coin, with only a handful of published examples. This is much rarer than the lighter type illustrated on the Crawford plate (43/3a or 97/4). This coin is discussed on andrewmccabe.ancients.info/Introductory.html
