Here is another cool coin from Alexandria ... Saloninus

I think it is sooo cool when they make the young emperor's bust look like a wee lil' baby, eh? (tucked "safely" in the bottom of the  coin's reverse) ... very sad tale associated with the little guy

 Sad

... anyway ...

This is one of my favourite Roman Coins ...

EGYPT, Alexandria. Saloninus. "As Caesar"
BI Tetradrachm

AD 258-260
Dated RY 7 of Valerian I and Gallienus (AD 259/60)
Diameter: 22 mm
Weight: 13.00 grams
Obverse: Bareheaded, draped, and cuirassed bust right
Reverse: Eagle standing left, head right, holding wreath in beak; L Z (date) across field
Reference: Köln 3005; Dattari (Savio) 5377; K&G 93.8
Other: 12h … VF, even brown surfaces. Rare
From the Robert M. Harlick Collection. Ex Classical Numismatic Group Electronic Auction 281 (20 June 2012), lot 253

=> an absolutely gorgeous example of a fairly rare coin-type (total winna)

All great coins Steve. I do not believe I have seen a coin with an ant on it before.

Hey Jay & Peter, thanks for the consistent coin comments (I'm super glad to hear that my coins still have some cool on-lookers)

... yes, I'm fairly sure that this is my only "ant" ... I have a few bees & flies, but this is probably the only example of a mighty ant? (and luckily, it is very obviously an ant, rather than a bee or fly ... it is very cool ... if you want it, then send me an e-mail/PM and maybe we can figure-out some sort of trade?)

Oh, where are my manors? => "please" feel free to post any of your "ant" examples (of any type => I love seeing other people's coins) ... thanks again for your comments

Hi Steve,
I have been enjoying your fantastic coins quite a bit.
That ant is great! Coincidentally, this discussion appeared recently:

Small Greek Bronze Head Right / Insect 1.389g 10.5mm
