Bosporus Kingdom Sauromates I (93-123AD)


Recommended Posts



An interesting coin, one of the fascinating aspects of this coin is the curious reading of the legend on the obverse, it reads from 5 o'clock to 8 o'clock, or from right to left. This is a very unusual feature which is quite seldom found on western alphabetised coinages. The legend reads "BACILEWC CAYPOMATOY" or King Sauromates
