Here is my As from Obulco--not an exact match to numista, but still pretty close. Thanks to all for a great round! I know that these are a little tough on you US coin collectors, but hopefully you don't mind having your horizons expanded a little bit.
"The danger we all now face is distinguishing between what is authentic and what is performed." -----King Adz
"Obulco, a Roman municipium of Hispania Baetica (Andalusia), now called Porcuna, a town of some note between Cordova and Gienna. Its coins which are autonomous, bear for their types generally a female head, sometimes a horseman, at others a bull, and the word OBVLCO, with the names of Roman duumvirs, and Celtiberian inscriptions."
Ok. That was a fun round. I was sorta lost early in. I chose not not guess later in, because it would not be right if you guys asked all the questions, and I swooped in and stole the prize at the very end.
