That is a nice specimen indeed!  I have seen a few of these over the years and every one but this one has been worn almost to the point to illegibility.  For this type, this is unusually nice.

Thanks guys, yes this type is usually pretty rough and well travelled so I'm pleased for now to have this one.

Of course I'd love one with full obverse legends

Only five spec. in Reka Devnia hoard, so a scarce type.

Finally added a coin of Domitian that isn't a Minerva reverse!

Domitian and his goat:

https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-157902

Although listed as "Common" in RIC I've had a tough time finding one.  I'm very pleased with this coin, and the fact that it has a very pronounced dot at the end of the legend is a bonus!  Minted after the deification of Vespasian under Titus.

This nice Brettian drachm arrived today in the mail:

https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158110

Rare with these control marks.  Only 2 on acsearch including this one.  Obverse struck with a worn die but still nice.  Reverse is very nicely preserved.

Another Brettian Punic war issue added today:

https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158124

Seems to be rare with the "hammer" or "double axe" in field.  Nice patina and not as rough in hand.

Love these coins!

Thanks Meep!

Added this decent sestertius today of Domitian on Horseback spearing a fallen German soldier:

Rated as (C) in RIC it's actually quite scarce to find.  Worn but with a pleasing portrait.

Picked this one up as a run of the mill Vespasian Pax sestertius.  In actuality it's a very rare issue from 77-78 AD with COS VIII

https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158383

Lovely portrait and the reverse is a lot nicer in hand.

Wow Jay, that is a fantastic acquisition. Rarity aside it is also a very handsome coin with a special portrait. Congrats!

Been several months since I added anything.  Today I add 2

First a rare Domitian RIC 164 (R2) denarius:

https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-159844

Light weight and rough surfaces but a very thin flan.

Second a stater from Lucania, Metapontom.

https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-159845

Again underweight but an extremely rare type.  Is it an ancient counterfeit or a lower standard issue?  Closest I could find was Noe 485 except  my legend is retrograde and I can't find it in any of the online references.  If anyone could help me out I'd appreciate it.

Again underweight but an extremely rare type.  Is it an ancient counterfeit or a lower standard issue?  Closest I could find was Noe 485 except  my legend is retrograde and I can't find it in any of the online references.  If anyone could help me out I'd appreciate it.

I've never see its like, but it looks genuine enough.  I've been using the SNG and ACNAC books, among others.  The hair style is consistent with the SNG ANS 2 #363-366. At first glance, #367 doesn't appear to match the hair or ethnic, but otherwise matches up well.

You gave me cause to check out the ANS online MANTIS coin database, which I can't recall ever doing.  I've found the entry, but alas, no photo.

Silver stater, Metapontum. 1944.100.4988

Denomination:  stater
Mint:  Metapontum
Obverse:  female head
Reverse:  barley ear
Weight:  7.9
Reference:  SNGANS 2.367

As happens too often, using too many criteria spoils the search, such as deity=Demeter.
Congrats on a true rarity!
