On this specimen, however, the skin draped over the arm looks exactly like a lion not a serpent. In any event, the type is very rare and published only by Dattari. Erik Christiansen in his work, The Roman Coins of Alexandria, notes this type and states that he "found no parallel to this coin."

(20) Erik Christiansen proposed a new, possible denomination system for the Alexandrian bronze coinage in his recent two-volume set, The Roman Coins of Alexandria, that has much merit! This system consists of a drachm, hemidrachm, 1 112 obol coin or trihemiobol (diobol), 3/4 obol or hexachalkon (obol), trichalkon (dichalkon), and dichalkon (chalkon). I have chosen the traditional denominations (in parenthesis) for the purpose of this catalogue but as Mr. Christiansen notes, there is much need for further research in this area!

This coin was most likely struck during Pius' regnal year 5 in Alexandria.

(75) Dr. Metcalf notes in his article [citing Milne] that contemporary forgeries of Alexandrian coins are rare and most counterfeits are of modern origin. The counterfeiter's hoard published by Metcalf was acquired by Ε. T, Newell at Luxor in March, 1908 and is now in the collection of the American Numismatic Society. Metcalf notes that "the 76 pieces still in the ANS may or may not represent the entire hoard, since Newell was in the habit of disposing of duplicates or damaged specimens." The above coin is more than likely one such coin disposed of by Newell.
