Tiberius Gemellus(?). Caesar, AD 35-37. Æ (17mm, 3.61 g, 3h). Philadelphia (as Neocaesarea) in Lydia mint. TIBEPION CEBACTON?, bare head right / NEOKECAPEIC, thunderbolt. LS 24 (under Tiberius Gemellus; same obv. die as illustration); RPC I 3017/1 (under Tiberius; same obv. die as illustration); Vagi 480 (under Tiberius Gemellus; same obv. die as illustration). Dark green patina, some red, minor smoothing. Good VF. Extremely rare.

From the Peter J. Merani Collection. Ex Nomos Obolos 5 (26 June 2016), lot 333.

For a discussion of this intriguing issue see RPC I p. 491-2. A major problem is due to the broken and recut obverse die, the only die known used for this type, that prohibits a clear reading even on an exceptional specimen like this one.
