  I should close out the story of the Gryphon As (Crawford 182/2) , which arrived several days ago and is now in queue for cataloging and to go to my gallery!  Very happy to have it.  Thanks for turning it loose, Steve!


I also wanted to share this unheralded coin, from the same source: 

AE Dupondius. Augustan Moneyer T Quinctius Crispinus Sulpicianus, ca 18 BC. AVGVSTVS/TRIBVNIC/POTEST within oak wreath / T.CRISPINVS.III VIR.A.A.A.F.F. around large S C. [RIC 332 although it is possible that it is a variant with just one "F" , I need to look a bit more closely.]

Crispinus had a decent start -- he was one of Augustus's moneyers and then later shared the consulship with Nero Claudius Drusus in 9 b.c.e. (Or, more properly stated, "the year in which Crispinus and Drusus were consuls".) 

As the coins graphically demonstrate, their legacies were not parallel -- "Commander and Conqueror of the Germans" on an aureus commissioned by son Claudius versus "one of three men who melt and strike gold, silver and bronze". 

And, although Drusus died shortly after, greatly lamented, as wikipedia notes, Crispinus did not fare as well in history:  "Velleius Paterculus characterized Crispinus Sulpicianus as "useless and defiant", and accused him of “unique depravity disguised by forbidding eyebrows”. A supporter of Iullus Antonius, he was accused of being one of the lovers of Julia the Elder and was either banished from Rome or executed in 2 BC as a result."


If only our eyebrows could disguise even some of our depravity...

PMah => I'm glad that you liked the Gryphon As (enjoy it)

Oh, and congrats on your Crispinus addition as well (thanks for posting it)

... I laughed at the eyebrow comment (sadly, I have very thin eyebrows that wouldn't be able to cloak any of my many vices!)

That's a lot of anchors.   I didn't even know that elephants needed anchors.
