Two new Vespasian denarii arrived today.

The first an antiquarian type with laurel trees copying Augustus:

The second, Victory on prow rated as C2 but has been very tough to find lately.  Currently none for sale anywhere!

Thanks Andrew!

I finally got around to taking a new picture of my Athenian Owl.  Been meaning to do this for years.  I think it turned out quite nice.

Thanks Q!

Just got a great coin from right here at Forum.  A fairly rare year 1 tetradrachm (LA) from Alexandria.  Year 2 (LB) coins are pretty common as Vespasian churned out tetradrachms to pay the legions.  Year 1 coins can be specifically dated to 1 July - 28 Aug 69 A.D.  The legions proclaimed Vespasian Emperor on July 1st and the Egyptian new year began at the end of August, so year one coins only lasted 2 months at most.

Typical fabric for the type but with a very nice portrait and Nike reverse.  It's all there.

Thanks for looking
