This specimen of RRC 14/2 has what might be deliberate cut marks on one side.
This made me think of the chop marks found on struck coins at Satricum which I blogged about last week.
What function could they serve? Definitely not to check purity. Unlikely to be defacement for political/ideological purposes.
The specimen is from the S. Marinella Hoard (CHRR 21) discovered in 1927.
The images are from BN 13 1989 and Catalli’s republication of the hoard.
