Good Morning.

Just added a coin that just arrived from Joe to my Gallery.   
   
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-166985
I am very happy with it as I am a sucker for animals on coins.

Added Joe's picture too, they do a better job than my capabilities.

The description on the lot

Bronze diobol, Geissen 71; RPC I 5124 (9 spec.); Dattari 164; BMC Alexandria p. 12, 96; Milne 71; SNG Milan 627; Kampmann 12.10; Emmett 91/2 (R1); SNG Cop -, F, heavy flan, scratches, bumps, reverse off center, obverse edge beveled, 13.467g, 25.2mm, 0o, Alexandria mint, 29 Aug 41 - 28 Aug 42 A.D.; obverse TIB KLAY KAI CEBAC GEPM, laureate head right, star lower right; reverse hippopotamus standing right, AYTOKPA above, L B (year 2) in exergue; from the Errett Bishop Collection;

Thanks Eric

Another coin that I am proud to have purchased from Joe and just finally added to my gallery.

This Gallienus with a She-Wolf Reverse.   It is a great looking coin in hand.

Thanks Joe, Showing off another purchase today.  This is a great looking coin and I am very happy with it.  Was a Christmas present to myself, knowing my wife wouldn't get it for me Smiley  It is a start for me in the Parthians.

I don't collect medieval coins, really, but I will grab Byzantine Empire and Crusader states because I love the history. So, I got my first Crusader state coin from Joe and I am super happy with this one. I do love the thin silver medieval coins. This one has a special place in my collection. Thanks!

This one is Frankish Greece, Principality of Achaea, Florent of Hainaut, 1289 - 1297

Not all purchases of the day are .... coins.     I have been looking for this for a while and I found it at Forum.  Just arrived.  Time to show how easily I can be kept entertained!

One of three Forum items today, but they are so nicely wrapped I haven't brought myself to slice the tape.  (Plus, Forum's box took the edge off the Xacto.  Strong stuff.)

Congratulations!  Important book. It should come with a warning label that it can cause Auction Catalogue Madness (see thread of same name for details and symptoms).

I was hoping it would cure it.... they're not making any more Manhattan these days.

Thank you for offering it, Joe.  Just send me a Zoom invite anytime you want to hear a dramatic reading from it !
