Abstract

The first part of the paper is devoted to the study and classification of 27 antoniniani and radiate imitations kept at the Gozo Museum of Archaeology. They are what remains of a hoard of about 4,000 coins discovered in a jar at Victoria (Gozo) in 1937. The second and the third parts of the paper try to systematically list the antoniniani and radiate imitations found in Malta during archaeological excavations, or accidentally unearthed, or discovered in some hoards, or kept in the Numismatic National Collection but without a veri-fied Maltese provenance, or simply mentioned in Maltese written sources. The Conclusions propose a model of circulation of official and imitative coins of the second half of the third century AD in Malta that looks like that of southern Italy, Sicily and Sardinia.
