Crawford writes: The correct descripton of the issue (which I owe to Mr. H.-D. Schultz) renders impossible traditional interpretations of the reverse type as a recognitio equitum, as symbolising the cavalry brought from Gaul by P. Crassus or as alluding to the battle of the Colline Gate near the temple of Venus Erycina. The female figure has long hair and wears a curious head-dress with two projections at the front, a cloak gathering on the left shoulder and a skirt.

about VF, obv. a bit excentrically
pedigree:
ex Marc Breitsprecher
ex Harlan J. Berk

Iuba II., like his father, was one of the Roman client kings. Grown up in Rome and educated by Octavia, sister of Octavian, he was appointed as king of Mauretania by Augustus in 25 BC. He was highly cultivated and promoted the Hellenistic culture. Her 1. wife was Kleopatra, daughter of the famous Kleopatra VII and Marcus Antonius. Her time of death is disputed and therewith the dating of this coin. Kleopatra Selene, like her mother, thought herself the incarnation of Isis, whose celestial body was the moon. Therefore on the crescent the crown of Isis above crescent.

One of the rare coins with Greek and Latin legends!

pedigree:
ex Pecunem Auction 25, Lot 105

Pick writes: Cf. the note on a similar type on a coin for Macrinus, n. 1734. There the goddess hold grain-ears in her r. hand; here on the ex. from Bukarest the attribut seems to be unsure for me, whereas Svoronos on the ex. from Rollin means to see a patera; thereafter it remains uncertain wether Hera or Demeter is seen as city-goddess.
On my coin it does look more like a patera than grain-ears!

EF

This edition without the BR monogram is of distinct coarser style than the type with monogram. Referring to new spectral-analytical researches the gold of these type contains Sn and Sb, is not refined, but equal to the alluvial gold found in the rivers of Transsylvania like the gold of the bracelets from Sarmizegetusa. Probably it is a restrike of the Dacians after the death of Brutus in the battle of Philippi. The removing of the monogram is a strong argument against the theory that the monogram means BA(silews) and speaks for BR meaning Brutus. After his death it was not opportune to put his name on the coins.

Imitation of a gold stater of Lysimachos (323-281 BC), struck to pay the Thracian mercenaries of Brutus, the assassin of Julius Caesar, for his campaign against Octavian and Marcus Antonius. The style more crude than the original. There is an alternative interpretation: Issued under Mithridates VI, 88-87 BC.

Abgar was king of the kingdom of Osrhoene at the Upper Euphrat in Mesopotamia, situated between the Roman and the Parthian empire. The inhabitants, the Orrhoei, were relatives of the Nabataeans. Their capital city was Edessa. This name has been given to the city by Seleukos I Nikator referring to the capital of Makedonia.

This coin needs its own number.

A similar rev. is known for Macrinus, AMNG I/1, 1789, pl. XX, 40. Pick writes: "stalk of a plant(?)". It is certainly not the club of Herakles. I think it a cypress twig because of its similarity with the twig which Elagabal holds in his hand when he is sacrificing over an altar on some Imperial denarii.
