Why add this Tetradrachm of Roman Emperor Caracalla to your collection?
This billon tetradrachm honoring Caracalla is a Roman Provincial issue, struck at the Antioch Mint AD 198-217.

Realizing the potential of the internet, Prieur founded the Compagnie Generale de Bourse (CGB) in 1988, which is now one of the world's most respected online numismatic resources.
