Hello AW,

What a great coin. My small collection of Crawford 511s, and a Q Nasidius, piqued my interest in the career of Sextus Pompey. He gets a pretty bum rap in the classical and standard literature. If I am not mistaken, until Kathryn Welch published her biography of Sextus (Magnus Pius: Sextus Pompeius and the transformation of the Roman Republic. Swansea: Classical Press of Wales, 2012) the only other english language biography of Sextus was by Moses Hadas, simply entitled Sextus Pompey, and that was in 1930! If youre interested you might also want to check out the collection of essays entitled Sextus Pompeius, edited by Anton Powell and Kathryn Welch (Swansea: Classical Press of Wales, 2002).

All the best.

Tracy
