Obv: Laureate and cuirassed bust of Gallienus r., viewed from front.
Rev: Eagle standing three quarters r., wreath in beak, palm branch over far shoulder, date L—ΗΑ across field.
Note: This unusual manner of expressing the numeral nine, as eight and one, is yet another expedient adopted by the mint authorities to avoid the ill-omened Θ (see commentary on lot 2383 above).
 
2506 A.D. 264/265
Æ hemidrachm (15.16 gm). Dattari 5292. Milne —. BMC —. Cologne 2927.

Note: Bronze coinage fell out of general use toward the end of the second century, and when it was occasionally revived in the the third century, it was clearly regarded as a special commemorative coinage. Bronze drachms were revived on the occasion of Severus Alexander's decennalia, and again under Philip I, in his fith and sixth regnal years, in celebration of Rome's millennium. The last great revival of bronze denominations, in the twelfth year of Gallienus, involved the hemidrachm denomination. It's function must similarly be commemorative, but the occasion is not understood.

Obv: Laureate, draped and cuirassed bust of Aurelian r., date L—Α across field.
Rev: Laureate, draped and cuirassed bust of Vabalathus r., date L—Δ across field.
Note: Vabalathus was the son of the Palmyrene king Odenathus, who for his services to Rome against Persia was rewarded by Gallienus with the titles Dex and Imperator. These titles did not pass automatically to Vabalathus, and in fact were denied him by both Gallienus and Claudius Gothicus. Aurelian, however, confirmed the young king in these titles. Both the Antiochene coinage and the Alexandrian coinage, which passed under Palmyrene control with the conquest of Egypt in A.D. 269, represent Aurelian and Vabalathus as imperial colleagues.

Rev: Homonoia standing three quarters l., raising r. hand and holding double cornucopiae, date LΕ in l. field.
Note: Vabalathus was proclaimed Augustus in A. D. 271, provoking Aurelian to make war on the Palmyrene empire. Numismatically the Palmyrene revolt is reflected in a short-lived coinage in the sole name of Vabalathus.
 
Zenobia, Queen of Palmyra mother of Vabalathus
2522 A.D. 270/271
Potin tetradrachm (8.63 gm).

Obv: ΘΕΩ ΚΑΡΩ CΕΒ, laureate head of Divus Carus r.
Rev: ΑΦΙΕ*ΡΩCΙC, lighted altar.
Note: This novel type commemorates the consecration of Carus. It corresponds closely to the commemorative coinage issued at Rome, which also employed the dedicatory dative in the obverse inscription. Both coinages employed two reverse types, an eagle and an altar, as here.

2530 A.D. 284/285

Obv: Laureate, draped and cuirassed bust of Numerian r.
Rev: Eagle standing l. between two vexilla, looking r., star and L Β above.

Potin tetradrachm (8.11 gm). Dattari 5612. Milne 4739. BMC 2469. Curtis 1950.

2535 A.D. 292/293

Obv: Laureate , draped and cuirassed bust of Maximian r.
Rev: GREEK in wreath.
Note: This type combines the Alexandrian concern with avoiding the regnal date Θ with a typical reverse design of the contemporary Rome coinage honoring Diocletian's decennalia
