Lotto 70:
Greek Italy. Greek Italy, uncertain mint. Capua or Minturnae(?). AE 17 mm. Late 90s-early 80s BC. Head of Dionysos right, wearing ivy wreath. / Panther standing right, holding thyrsos. HN Italy 2672; Stannard & Sinner, “A central Italian coin with Dionysus/Panther types, and contacts between Central Italy and Spain in the 2nd and 1st centuries BC,” Saguntum 46 (2014), p. 161, 1; SNG Cop. 342 (Capua?). AE. 4.24 g. 17.00 mm. R. Rare and interesting coin. VF/About VF. This issue has hitherto been tentatively attributed to Capua (BMC and SNG Cop.), but Garrucci (p. 59f) claimed that the coins appeared to be found chiefly in the neighbourhood of Orvieto (Bolsena). Possibly belonging to Minturnae, where a number of specimens have been found. Based on overstrikes, Stannard and Sinner place this issue around the time of the Social Wars.
