Dear Board

I started uploading my collection to the Member's Gallery about a month ago. I'm slowly rephotographing and reattributing coins when I have the time and I will periodically update this thread with any interesting new additions to the gallery.

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/index.php?cat=40435

So far I have uploaded my Romans from Augustus to Commodus, lumping in imperial issues with provincials, along with a smattering of recent acquisitions:

Julio-Claudian Dynasty (plus Vitellus) http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=6760
Flavian Dynasty http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=6765
The Adoptive Emperors http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=6768
Severan Dynasty http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=6763
The Soldier Emperors http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=6761
The Successionist Empires http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=6759
The Tetrarchy http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=6775

I like all these coins but to pick out a few favorites:

It's hard for me to walk past my first two ancient coins - denarii of Lucus Verus (http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-148381) and Marcus Aurelius (http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-148655). They are not particularly rare types or in remarkable condition, but they are where it all started!

In my opinion, my most attractive (Roman) coin is this Trajan denarius with Victory on the reverse which has good detail and is nicely toned. My photography skills still aren't quite up to scratch so like most of my gallery it's even better in hand! http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-148293

I have an interest in the crisis of the third century, so this coin of Postumus issued under Aureolus is a favorite - not only is it a handsome coin, the story of Aureolus is a fascinating one, he was undoubtedly a pivotal character at a pivotal point in time for the Roman Empire. Although the coin is not one of the more common (but arguably more historically interesting) Fides Eqvit types, it's an exciting small piece of history http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-147799

My most viewed coin so far (by a long shot) is this Maximus II Daia. I'm a little confused by this! It's a nice example and doesn't seem to be an especially common type judging by the limited examples I can find online, but that aside, I'm not sure why it's garnered so much attention (nb the vendor had it as RIC 86 however I think it is RIC 100 (and have attributed it as such) based on the examples pictured on OCRE) http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-148442.

I will (slowly) keep them coming!

It's been a while since I updated this post... but I've not been completely inactive and have been slooooowly adding to my gallery with a dozen of my third-century coins from Maximinus Thrax to Claudius II Gothicus added since my last update.  Rather than batter you with a long list of uploads, I think I can leave you with this link http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=lastup&cat=40435

I've not had time to spend on coins lately or even lurk around the forums (and I have missed you all!), but I've had an opportunity the last few days to jump back in.  This batch is all part of the existing collection, mostly 3rd C CE Antoninianus, with some later Roman and eastern coins thrown in for some variety. Hopefully I'll be able to keep the updates coming!

Thanks Joe  Smiley

Added a couple more over the last few days with a few more of my Tetrachs and a start on the Constantine Era.

Diocletian / CONCORDIA MILITVM http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-154495

Galerius (as Caesar) / CONCORDIA MILITVM http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-154495

Licinius I / IOVI CONSERVATORI AVG http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-154486

Constantinus I / SOLI INVICTO COMITI http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-154499 NB using OCRE I think I have narrowed this down to RIC VI Treveri 873 or RIC VII Treveri 42 but I can't tell the difference between the two. Any thoughts appreciated!

I have made a small start on my Greek and other Eastern coins today



Aeolis, Aigai.
4th-3rd centuries BC.
9mm., 0.99g.
Laureate head of Apollo right
Head of goat right

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-155341

NB, aside from some Indo-Greek sources I don't have anything by way of Greek reference material in hard copy and I am still learning how to use a lot of the online material available for Greek coins. As such if anyone wants to weigh in with any help further attributing any of these feel free! It would be appreciated.
