Pour ce type, M. Crawford a relevé une estimation de 129 coins de droit et de 143 coins de revers. Ce denier est frappé dans un atelier itinérant accompagnant Pompée. Il semble plus rare que ne le laissent supposer les ouvrages généraux.

Historical background


SICINIA

(49 BC) Quintus Sicinius

In 49, the break between Pompey and Caesar is consumed. Caesar crossed the Rubicon, "Alea Jacta is" on January 11 and invaded Italy. The Senate says the defense of Rome to Pompey. Quintus Sicinius was appointed by the prefect of the city and minted until Caesar seizes. This is the last official coinage Pompeian party in the Urbs. Given the impossibility of defending the city against the troops of Caesar, Pompey fled and took refuge in Greece with a part of the Roman aristocracy.
