SASSANIAN EMPIRE. Shahpur I, A.D. 240-272. AV Dinar (7.34 gms), Mint I ("Ctesiphon"), ca. A.D. 260-272. ANACS MS 64. Gobl Type-I/1. Obverse: Bust right, wearing diadem and mural crown with korymbos; Reverse: Fire altar flanked by two attendants wearing mural crowns. Extremely well centered and rather sharply struck on a flan of good metal, this example offers great eye appeal. Wholly worthy of increased focus and an elite bid.
