I thought that I'd change it up a bit today and show a couple of my Siliqua examples (Siliquae?) ...  both examples are from the same time period and both also show incredibly cool flow lines! (yummy-yummy, visually, eh?)

Magnus Maximus. AR Siliqua
Treveri (Trier) mint
AD 383-388
Diameter: 17 mm
Weight: 1.96 grams
Obverse: Pearl-diademed, draped, and cuirassed bust right
Reverse: Constantinopolis seated facing, head left, on throne, holding globe and scepter
Reference: TRPS. RIC IX 84b.1 var. (scepter instead of spear); RSC 20†a var. (same)
Other: 12h … toned and cool flow-lines

Arcadius, AR Siliqua
Quinquennalia issue, Mediolanum (Milan) mint
383-408 AD
Struck AD 388
Diameter: 17 mm
Weight: 1.43 grams
Obverse: Pearl-diademed, draped, and cuirassed bust right
Reverse: VOT V/MVLT X in four lines within wreath
Reference: MDPS. RIC IX 13; Ulrich-Bansa, Moneta, 23; RSC 27B
Other: 12h … sweet flow-lines with iridescent toning
From the D. Fagan Collection, purchased from Edward J. Waddell

Hi Steve,

Great coins, as always.

I bought this one recently. It is a hoard coin.
I had always wanted a siliqua and I could not resist this one for a number of reasons.

Julian II; Rome, Lugdunum (Lyon) mint, 1st officina; AR Siliqua;  Silver; struck 361 AD; Obverse: FL CL IVLIA NVS P P AVG, pearl-diademed, draped, and cuirassed bust right; Reverse: VOT/X/MVLT/XX in four lines within wreath; PLVG, in exergue; (17.22mm, 2.05g, 7h); Pedigreed: from the 1887 East Harptree, Somerset Hoard (IRBCH 1424), ex Classical Numismatic Group eAuction 407 (11 October 2017), Lot 608; References: RIC VIII (Lyons) 233; Lyon 276; RSC V 146b; Cohen 146; Voetter 3

Hmmm, what should I choose this morning?

Either way, they're pretty cool, so they're gonna be today's thing

It's Saturday night and I'm a bit bored, so here is another sweet coin-avenue to follow

=> "bees"

Again, it'd be great if you wanted to post any bees from your collections

Oh, and here is a fake bee (after we found a couple of fake examples, the seller gave me my money back)

too bad (I really liked the look of this coin ... too good to be true, I guess, eh?)

Holy Cow Steve (i'm so sorry, someone had to do it). 

Great bull set. Who is the little dwarf on the Ebusus coin meant to be?
