Ancient Rome (Parium City Coinage) Augustus Bronzes with Capricorn 27BC to 14AD
Parium, known to the locals as Parion, was a city founded by the ancient Greeks, located in what is now northwestern Turkey. At the time of these coin issues, it was part of the Roman province of Mysia. Coins have been produced in Parion since around the 4th century BC, which is attested by the amazing craftsmanship required to carve such beautiful designs into tiny dies. Values are quite respectable, as shown below:
worn: $85 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $350
well preserved: $500
Very well preserved coins with a strong legend and a beautiful portrait can be worth even more.
Please refer to our Important Terminology page found at the top left in order to properly interpret these catalog values.
