Dear friends of Nikopolis!

Important:  All coins with a number higher than #041 are transferred to Nikopolis Addenda #7!

The chase goes on. This thread should be seen as supplement and integral part of Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov, The Coinage of Nicopolis ad Istrum, edition 2018.

#001

A new type for Nikopolis

Anonymous issue, 1st-3rd century AD
AE 12, 0.70g, 12.02mm, 180°
obv. Female figure, in long garment, stg. r.
rev. Crescent with 5 stars
ref. Not in Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2018):
      cf. No. 8.(?).0.48.6 (Tyche with rudder stg, l.)
rare, S+
coll. Hoeft

It is discussed wether these items are coins at all or rather temple tokens. Most of them are holed and on this specimen an attempted piercing can be seen too. Mr. Jekov has decided to add them to Nikopolis.

Best regards

A new "barbaric" imitation for Elagabal

Elagabal, AD 218-222
AE 18, 2.79g, 17.89mm
obv. [AV K ]M AVR - ANTWNINO[C] (R retrograd)
       Bust, draped and cuirassed, laureate, r.
rev. NIKOPO[L]ITWN PROC IC
       Crescent with 3 stars in the cavity
ref. a) not in AMNG

The style of the obv. resembles that of No. 8(?).26(?).14.1 (even the retrograde R!) and so I have completed the obv. legend.

Now when I have the new edition 2018 of Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov, The Coinage of Nicopolis ad Istrum, in hand I have seen that 2 corrections mentioned in this thread have already been done. So I have deleted the obsolete entrances.

#011

       c) Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2018) No. 8.14.1.21 corr.

This coin was published in Nikopolis Addenda #5 under #97, and is now listed in HrHJ (2018) as No. 8.14.1.21 in error. It is not Zeus but Serapis with kalathos.

A new type for Domna

Julia Domna, AD 193-211
AE 17, 3.10g, 16.52, 0°
obv. IOV DOM - CEBACT
       Bust, draped, r.
rev. NIKOPOLI - PROC ICTR

      b) not in Varbanov
      c) Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2018) No. 8.17.10.2 corr.
coll. Hoeft

This type is mixed up under No. 8.17.10.2 with another different type. But it should have its own number. It has a different obv. legend (IOV DOM - CEBACT instead of IOVL DO - CEBACTH) and a different rev. depiction (Hermes is nude without chlamys over l. arm).

A new rev. legend and a legend error for Severus

Septimius Severus, AD 193-211
AE 18, 2.68g, 18.17mm, 30°
obv. AV KAI CE - CEVHRVC(sic!)
       Laureate head r.
rev. NIKOPOLITWN PROC ICTRON
      Crescent with 1 8-pointed star in the cavity
ref. a) not in AMNG
      b) not in Varbanov
      c) not in Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2018):
          rev. No. 8.14.48.44 var. (has ICTRO)
          obv. e.g. No. 8.14.3.11 var. (without legend error)
coll. Hoeft

I read CEVHRVC. I think we owe this neat legend error to a Latin speaking engraver.

I think, No. 8.18.22.2 is exactly this type too. But the coin depicted in HrHJ (2018) is too worn.

An important correction for Commodus

Commodus, AD 177-192
AE 18, 2.94g, 17.51mm, 180°
obv. AVT KAI A - V KOMODOC
       Laureate head r.

      c) Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2018) No. 8.10.47.7 corr.
coll. Hoeft

This is the first coin, where the unknown legend in ex. is decipherably. Until now the ex. was always outside the flan. But already the depicted coins have had remains of the legend in ex. Now the legend is completed.

In exergue a large T upside down, then a smaller PO upside down but only about half visible, the concluding N seems difficult to see?

One could wish for a clearer reading on this specimen too!

I think the T is part of the legend PROC ICT, not part of the ex. The central letter in the vex. is round, so it seems to be the O of RON. On the right side of O I see straight lines. That could be remains of N. So only the R of RON is missing. It should be on the left side of O.

Yes the T is the continuation of IC in the circular legend, but to me looks to be below the ground line, so in the exergue.

That would suggest that the PON was also upside down, though not enough of these letters survives to be sure.

Usually the "barbaric" imitations from Nikopolis are from the time of the Severans. The obv. legend seems to be Latin because the end looks like AVG.

A correction for Caracalla&Geta

Caracalla & Geta as Caesar, AD 198-201
AE 26, 9.87g, 25.5mm, 225°
struck under governor Ovinius Tertullus             c(sic!)
obv. AV.K.M.AVR.ANTONINOC.K.L.CEP. / .KAI GETAC

       Emperor (Severus), bearded, in military cloak stg. frontal, looking l., resting with raised l.
       hand on spear and holding in extended tr. hand small Nike
ref. a) AMNG I/1, 1624 (1 ex., München)
      b) Varbanov 3167 (R9)
      c) Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2018) No. 8.20.34.1 corr. (R9)
coll. Hoeft

Small c above G of GETAC not mentioned. But you can it see on 8.20.1.1, 8.20.20.1 and 8.20.32.1 too. At AMNG 1623 (= 8.20.32.1) Pick writes: "The small naturally belongs to KAIC." Therefore all named coins should be corrected.
Pick writes "in ex. PROC I". But here and on the depicted coin in HrHJ (2018) the ex. seems to be outside the flan.
HrHJ (2018) does know of only 1 ex. of this type. So it was called R10. Now this 2nd ex. turned up and the rarity has to be reduced to R9.

       Bust, draped, seen from front, bare-headed, r.

Already Pick has supposed that Apollo is holding an object in his r. hand. He writes "r. hand (with arrow?) drawn back". It is not an arrow, but probably a twig.

I have added a scan en detail.

A new rev. description for Severus

Septimius Severus, AD 193-211
AE 17, 3.35g
obv. AV K L C - CEVHROC
       Laureate head r.
rev. NIKOPOLIT PROC ICT.
       Altar with basket (cista mystica?) from which a snake is coiling up
ref. a) not in AMNG
      b) not in Varbanov
      c) Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2018) 8.14.47.31 corr.
emiliyan_pavlov, Ebay, September 2018

This type was described as "altar, on which snake is coiling, head l." This new coin has far the best preserved rev. I have seen. And now my suspicion that the old description is not correct is proven. It can't be a snake alone because there are structures above the altar not compatible with a snake. So I think it is a basket or a similar container in which the snake is coiling up.

Was described in error as "Bear walking r." Because of the raised tail I think it is rather a lion than a panther. Because of the missing mane I vote for a lioness.

A lion? mmmmhhh... sure not a bear!

Yes, Jochen is the expert for Nikopolis. I don't collect these coins, but it's great when employ so much.

Thank you! The Coinage of Nikopolis is one of the most important tasks in my life.

@nummis durensis
If you take a closer look you can recognize the typical underjaw of a lion if his mouth is open. Because the mane is missing I think it is a lioness.

A completely new type for Severus

Septimius Severus, AD 193-211
AE 26, 10.39mm, 26.17mm, 15°
struck under governor Aurelius Gallus
obv. AV [K L CEP] - CEVHROC P
       Laureate head r., slightly draped on l. shoulder
rev. VPA [AVR GALLOV] NIKO - POLEITWN PROC / ICTRON
       Demeter in long garment and mantle, stg. frontal, head l., resting with raised l. hand on
       burning long torch and holding in extended r. hand grain ears over cista mystica with
       raised lid from which snake is emerging l.
ref. a) not in AMNG
      b) not in Varbanov
      c) not in Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2018)

          obv. e.g. No. 8.14.38.11 (same die)
       probably unpublished
coll. Hoeft

Because of the obv. the governor is Aurelius Gallus.

Now we have the following depictions of Demeter:
(1) Aurelius Gallus under Severus: Demeter with cista mystica 8.14.5.-
(2) Tertullus under Caracalla: Demeter with Modius with grain-ears 8.18.5.1
(3) Flavius Ulpianus under Geta: Demeter with burning altar 8.22.5.1

I suspect this might just be a coin of Geta, same dies as HHJ 2012, p. 248, third coin, but with the obv. legend extensively recut to name Caracalla instead. Note the die break in Geta's drapery below his chin, which also seems to be present on the possibly recut "Caracalla".

But this idea could easily be refuted if you can point to another untooled coin from the same obv. die and so of course with the same obv. legend of Caracalla!

Dear Curtis!

Thank you for your hint. Yes, I couldn't find this obv. under the coins of Caracalla which are depicted in Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2018) especially with the close ANT of ANTWNINOC. But there is no bust of Geta in HrHJ (2018) that matches this coin.

When you write "recut" then you think it would be a modern fake?

Jochen,

Yes, I am postulating recutting by a modern hand. If true the motivation is hard to understand, since altering the obv. legend from Geta to Caracalla would not significantly increase the coin's desirability or market value!

You refer to the coin of Geta HHJ 2018 8.22.9.3 corr., from the same rev. die (only I in exergue) as your possible new Caracalla. I would assume that this is the same specimen I am referring to, HHJ 2012, p. 248, third coin. Doesn't the obv. die show a die break in Geta's drapery below his chin? This is the Geta obv. die which I think may have been recut to Caracalla on the new coin.

Yours,

Curtis
