ASIA, Mysia, Pergamon, AE25 (25mm, 9.91g, 12h), pseudo-autonomous issue, probably struck under Trajan, but possibly under Domitian.

 

ΠΕΡΓΑΜΟC ΚΤΙC ΤΗC, bearded male head right (the founder of Pergamon) wearing taenia; ΕΠΙ CΤΡΑΤΗΓΟΥ CΩΚΡΑΤΟΥC, helmeted Athena standing left holding patera in right hand and shield in left, a spear behind her.

 

 

RPC --, BMC Mysia 224.

Is there even a remote possibility that this coin is Domitian's?  I don't know, but probably not.  RPC 924 = BMC 225, and this is BMC 224, so there's that, and it was represented as Domitianic when I bid on it.  When was Socrates strategos of Pergamon?  That would answer the question, wouldn't it?
