Seller's Note/ These issues were struck for so many centuries under so many magistrates names that it makes our head swim, you know? And the soft strike with the missing legend did not help. Ugh. But one thing we can tell you is that the cow standing left on these wonderful issues is Rare/Scarce.
Such extensive coinage was issued at Dyrrhachium, in present day Albania, under the Roman Republic. The drachm circulated alongside, and presumably at parity with, Roman denarii.
