Roman Republic, 99 - 50 B.C.


Roman Republican Moneyers and Their Coins 81 BCE - 64 BCE
Click for a larger photo From the author of Roman Republican Moneyers and Their Coins 63 BC - 49 BC. This new book covers the thirty-four moneyers who minted between 81 and 64 BCE. Michael Harlan describes the fascinating details of historical events and the social context of the period, the moneyers' family histories, and how all these influenced the coin types.

Pontus(?), Roman Quaestor (Lucius Lucullus?), 100 - 50 B.C.
Click for a larger photo The Q identifies the bare male head as a Roman Quaestor. This letter is not noted in RPC but is visible here and clear on another example known to Forum. Perhaps the image is of Lucius Lucullus, an important Quaestor of Sulla, about whom Plutarch wrote. The reverse legend, the Latin FETIA, refers to the fetial ceremony, part of the treaty making process, during which a pig was sacrificed to sanctify the oaths.

Roman Macedonia, "Thasian" Type, c. 148 - 80 B.C.
Click for a larger photo This Dionysos / Herakles type was first struck by Thasos itself on the island and in its continental territories in the South of the Balkans, c. 168 - 148 B.C.
