Is the Mintmark TSA or TS Delta?

I would say Delta. The letter has a distinct horizontal base, that one does not see on the A's.

Very nice and and an Emperor I'm on the hunt for. Was it one of those "unidentified" finds? I just snagged a rare emperor myself a few day ago. Will post shortly.

@erafjel: Thanks for the analysis! I'm always doubting about the mint letters. Is it part of the mint name or the officina

@travelcoin: It was one of my: I-will-look-at-them-later-dusty-coin-piles
I'll probably put the coin up for sale. It is actually still too early for my collection area.

You're welcome. The Delta signifies that it is minted in the 4th officina. The TS stands for Thessalonica. There were five officinae, denoted Alfa, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon.
