Thanks , quadrans and Stkp, museumguy and Robert L,
sorry I don't always reply in time.  Your thumbs up are appreciated.
Steve, the Phraates III archer does look funny. It also has two horns and looks quite devilish.
Stkp, you are indeed stretched out quite a bit. What generated your interest in Hungarian coins?

Regards,
Schatz

For those of us whose collecting interests are not squarely within the mainstream, the question of what generated our interests in our core collections would actually make a good topic. What generated your extremely focused interest in Parthian coins, Schatz? Stkp

Hello again after a long while,

in the -at least for the time being- last chapter of my gallery headed 'Plate Coins' I have compiled a handful of Parthian and Elymaian coins that have appeared with a photograph in the relevant literature on Parthian and Elymaian coins. These are not newly acquired pieces, i.e. they already figure in the appropriate chapters of my gallery. The idea was to make it easier to locate and view certain coins without having to go through my entire gallery. The chapter 'Plate Coins' will be followed (in the near future) by a compilation of my tetradrachms - the number of times viewed in the gallery proper indicate that the greatest interest is in tetras.

Hoping to find some new coins one of these days,
Schatz

Thanks, quadrans,

these here are not new, but as I say, I am hopeful to find some new coins one of these days. It seems that the field is getting narrower, actually, there are only four or five coins left which I lust after, and they are hardly ever on sale. You don't seem to have this problem, but then, you picked a larger pool of possible to begin with.

Regards,
Schatz

Hallelujah.  Find 'em, buy 'em.  Then, having finally met your goal, start selling off some of this amazing collection to me.   Grin

A spectacular achievement - actually two.  Not just the building of such a great collection, but the documentation - the educational resource - that you've provided, gratis, to all of us.

Well done, Schatz.

Hi Bob,

I have a feeling that I may be looking for those four or five coins for the rest of my life. Well, it's good to have a goal to the very end.
Thanks for your kind remarks. Without your patient encouragement and guidance I would never have started a gallery. Now that I have some time at my hands I will take a closer look at some of those coins and see if I can trace their pedigrees a little better.
How are your Elymaians going?

Best regards,
Schatz

I anticipate uploading some of my recent Elymaean pickups in about two weeks, Schatz, and I've got bids out on a couple more.  Thanks for asking.

I have been under the radar for quite a while but am now ready to upload some more coins to my gallery.  Here are the first Elymais pieces and then, over the next days/weeks, I will continue with more Elymais coins and a handful of Parthians:

1. A bronze drachm of the usurper Tigraios: http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158530;

2. A AR tdr of Kamnaskires V.: http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158534;

3. A BI tdr of an unknown Early Arsacid ruler: http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158536;

4. Another BI tdr of an unknown early ruler: http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158535;

5. My favorite Elymaian ruler, a BI tdr of Kamnaskires-Orodes: http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158544.  Sorry about the dar picture, but the coin is almost black.

Hope you enjoy looking at these,
Schatz

Hi,  here are some more Elymais drachms. I was able to get some good quality drachms with a very attractive, nearly black tone:

  2.  http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158550;

  4.  http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158553;

  5.  http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158557;

  6.  http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158606;

  7.  http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158605;

 
Sorry about the dark images, but it is not easy to photograph dark bronzes. When enlarged the pics show quite a lot of detail.

First 2 leftovers from my 'almost black' series, 1 scary Kamnaskires-Orodes drachm and 1 excellent quality Orodes III.:

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158722;

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158604;

I came across a handful of lovely drachms with a very attractive verdigris patina - of course, no one knows its origin.  There is 1 Kamnaskires-Orodes, 2 Orodes II., 2 Phraates, and 2 Orodes III., all in quite good condition:

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158724;

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158730;

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158728;

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158726;

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158723;

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158725;

Hope I could rekindle your interest in Elymais coinage a bit.  There is more to come later this week.

Dear Schatz and Board,

Your drachms with "attractive verdigris patina" look a bit like the pieces from the massive "Robinson" hoard.  Certainly the types fit.  Compare your group with my "three kings":

Handsome specimens you have regardless!
