A great coin Tracy- The depiction of Scylla is fantastic- I'm glad you put the larger photo in so the details could be viewed!

Robin,

Thank you for the compliment. I never considered Sextus Pompey as an area of collecting interest but that coin type just called out to me.

Spectacular!
One can even see the "human" face on Scylla.
Great catch!

Akropolis,

Thank you. I agree that it is a great catch. I don't have a premium subscription to acsearch, but when I did a quick perusal of some of the 89 examples of Crawford 511/4 I was hard pressed to find one that looks as good as this representation of Scylla.

Thank you Joe for posting the larger picture to this discussion thread.

This one just arrived fresh from Forum's sale last week!  It's a huge hunk of silver from just after Alexander's death minted in Babylon.  I love the head of Helios in the field.

Joe's coins have always surpassed expectations and this one is no exception.  Such an amazing coin in hand.  

Thanks Joe!

I want to share a related pair of purchases I've made from FORVM. As a few of you might know I collect Marc Antony legionary denarii (among others), and while there are many of the standard issues from that series that I still need to collect, in the past month Joe has provided me with the chance to add two tangental members of that series: The Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus restoration issue and an IMPVES countermarked example of Antony's legionary coinage believed to have been marked during the reign of Vespasian. Both of these pieces speak to the enduring legacy of this coin series to the Romans themselves in the centuries following their original issue.

Thanks Joe and FORVM!
