Description

A late Roman coin die discovered during an excavation in the outskirts of the castrum of Basilia / Basel (CH) in 1999 was identified only in 2021. It turned out to be a heavily corroded iron lower die used to strike late Constantinian imitations of the FEL TEMP REPARATIO / falling horseman type.
In addition to a detailed presentation of the coin die and its classification in the context of the features of the excavation, the poster will discuss the significance of the coin die within the phenomenon of imitations in the 4th century AD, especially in the Rhineland.
