Comments

The coin in the main image (3.01g, 18mm, 7h, Extremely Fine, toned):
◦ Ex-private French collection and from the Banasa / El Ksar Hoard of 1907 (IGCH 2307).
◦ Auctioned by Roma Numismatics Ltd, Auction XVII, 28 March 2019, Lot 319. Sold for 2,300 GBP.

The Banasa Hoard, deposited in circa AD 18-17 was found in 1907 near modern day Souk-el Arbaa, 120 km northeast of Rabat, Morocco, in 1907. The hoard was previously said to be from Alkazar (El Ksar El Kebir), 70 km south of Tangier and hence is occasionally referred to as the El Ksar Hoard. The group contained approximately 4000 silver coins and one bronze. A substantial number of the coins now reside in public collections, principally in London, Paris, Berlin, Athens, New York and Algiers.
