I know I know this but as the blog is my external mind to help me remember things and I cannot seem to find a post to add this too as a note…. Here goes.
As the catalogue notes, Burnett 1983, p. 11 believes this type with an African Elephant was made in Sicily c. 213-210 by the Carthagianians for the Hannibalic War. This corrects the views of Robinson.
Also note that the specimen appears lightly double struck. See second nose under proper nose of final strike.
