Ref: BMC 7-9. Moushmov 5782. Jaurukova 200. RPC 1718.
Notes: Rhoemetalkes is the only non-roman person to appear on a coin together with Augustus. Thrace did not become a Roman Province until A.D.46 in the reign of Claudius. The Kingdom had a troubled history after the death of Rhoemetalkes in A.D.12 which culminated in the murder of the last ruler, Rhoemetalkes III, by his wife.

An interesting reverse depicting a mythological scene: Leto and her children Artemis and Apollo. The two were fathered by Zeus, arousing Hera's jealousy. Leto was banned from giving birth on earth or sea, but found the island of Delos, which supposedly was not connected to either.

(all notes from FORVM website)

Extremely rare with no other specimens found on Wildwinds.com, acsearch.info or coinarchives.com, or in Loebbecke, Scholz or all the Imhoof additions.

[One same size, same obv. die as {this coin}, same magistrate (archon) Artemidoros, but different rev. type (river god reclining), in RPC temp. (online) 8174 = Peus 365, 2000, Burstein 696, there stated to be unpublished and apparently unique.

Comment: Issued under the Provincial Governor, Statius Longinus. The interesting combination of godesses was suggested by Pat Lawrence. Based on that I interpret the message to mean that unethical/unlawful conduct in the marketplace will be judged and condemned in the afterlife.
All too typical of the time, Diadumenian and his father, Macrinus, were assassinated at Antioch by the order of Elagabalus in June of 218. The boy was not quite ten years old.
Attribution thanks go to Steve Minnoch and Pat Lawrence.

Ref : Emmet, Alexandrian coins #4241/2, RCV # 12982 (2000), Sear # 4801 var (It's actually an hexadrachm in Sear)
Domitius Domitianus, stationed in Egypt, rebelled against Diocletianus in july 296 AD and was proclaimed emperor. He was defeated during spring 297 AD. Diocletian decided to close the alexandrian mint, so the coins of Domitianus are the last provincial coins from Alexandria. Also, Domitianus was the only ruler to strike octadrachms (in parallel with didrachms, tetradrachms and hexadrachms)

Ex-Forum

This is the Wildwinds example

Ptolemy Soter, wanting to integrate Egyptian religion with that of their Hellenic rulers, promoted worship of Serapis as a deity that would win the reverence of both groups alike. This was despite the curses of the Egyptian priests against the gods of previous foreign rulers (i.e Set who was lauded by the Hyksos). Alexander the Great had attempted to use Amun for this purpose, but Amum was more prominent in Upper Egypt, and not as popular in Lower Egypt, where the Greeks had stronger influence. The Greeks had little respect for animal-headed figures, and so an anthropomorphic statue was chosen as the idol, and proclaimed as the equivalent of the highly popular Apis. It was named Aser-hapi (i.e. Osiris-Apis), which became Serapis, and was said to be Osiris in full, rather than just his Ka (life force). Ptolemy's efforts were successful - in time Serapis was held by the Egyptians in the highest reverence above all other deities, and he was adored in Athens and other Greek cities.

Struck in preparation of the 900th anniversary of Rome celebrated in AD 147.
The river god Tiber plays an important role in ancient Roman legends such as Rhea Silvia, the mother of Romulus and Remus, who was thrown into the river to be drowned. She fell into the arms of the River god who married her; Romulus and Remus were saved by the river god Tiber who safely left the twins in a pool where they were rescued by a wolf.

This very rare type has been struck from a single obverse die, with a bust with aegis and with the unique obverse legend "ANTONINVS AVGVSTVS PIVS" found nowhere else in the coinage of Antoninus Pius. This die was used exclusively with two very similar reverse dies differing only in the legend: TR P COS III (this specimen) and TR POT COS III.

This coin commemorates the Roman advance into Scotland which saw the beginning of construction of the Antonine Wall, running across the central belt from the Clyde Estuary in the west to the Forth Estuary in the east. Since Antoninus had already taken the title “Imperator” on his adoption by Hadrian, he was hailed Imperator for the second time after this victory in Britain which was possibly engineered simply in order to give the new emperor military prestige.

The edges of the coin appear filed/rasped/ground, with parallel scour marks, flat fields, and usually a prominent ridge all around the circumference of the coin. To me it would suggest "filing" after manufacture.
The coin has virtually no wear, and a dark, almost black patina.

RIC I : 510 | BMC : 703 | RSC : 298
Very Rare.

This coin commemorates Augustus' triumphant agreement with the Parthians in 20 B.C. under which they returned the legionary standards captured from Crassus who had been defeated and killed at Carrhae thirty-three years earlier (53 B.C.). Augustus installed these standards in the Temple of Mars Ultor.
The reverse of the coin shows the triumphal arch which was awarded to Augustus on the occasion of his recovery of the standards. This was the second triumphal arch awarded to Augustus and, like the earlier arch which had been constructed in 29 BC to honour his victory over Cleopatra, this second arch, which archaeological evidence suggests actually incorporated the first arch, stood in close proximity to the Temple of Divus Julius at the southern entrance to the Roman Forum.

This is the rarest cistophorus struck during the reign of Augustus with the exception of the exceedingly rare issues featuring a sphinx.

Sear RCV I 1614 BMCRE 666 BMCRR East 257 RSC 182

There is a certain amount of difference of opinion over the reverse of this coin, not only from the reading of the legend, but also the date and place of minting. Sear gives the reverse legend as IOV OLV and BMCs Roman Empire and Republic as IOVI OLV or IOVI OLVM.. However, both references give the date as 20/21B.C. to commemorate Augustus' visit to Athens, but Sear says that another reference prefers to assign it to the Pergamene Mint six years earlier. This coin here certainly seems to give a clear reverse legend as IOVI OLVI.

RIC.152 Sear RCV III 11587

In A.D.274 Aurelian attempted a currency reform that did bring a certain amount of stability. The antoninianus was restored to approximately its original size. The actual silver content was increased slightly, but remained very low at around 4.5% overall. These reformed antoninianii often bear a mint mark of XXI that is thought to represent the ratio of 20 parts copper to 1 of silver. However, coins produced at Ticinum, as shown here, have the letter T instead of the I in the value mark.

RIC 525c var. (draped bust); Banti 59

Before a battle, or on parade, the emperor would address his troops in an event known as an adlocutio cohortium (address to the cohorts). This was an important opportunity for the emperor to be present among his troops and inspire morale and esprit de corps among them. A sestertius of Gaius (Caligula), issued on behalf of a donative for the Praetorian Guard, was the first to employ the adlocutio as a reverse type. Similar subsequent issues were minted to emphasize the emperor's perceived, if not actual, role as military commander. The present specimen commemorates Caracalla's victory against the Germans and his preparations for a Persian war. Caracalla idolized Alexander the Great and, as other emperors before him, wished to recreate his successes in the east. Thus, in 214 AD, after having been proclaimed "Alexander" at Philippopolis in Thrace, he assembled his troops, who had been outfitted as Macedonians, and proceeded into Asia Minor. Caracalla's ambitions were, however, hampered by his own unfit physical and mental state; over the next three years the campaign degeneratged into near-chaos and ended with Caracalla's murder.

I think this is a beautiful portrait of the ten year old Caracalla. The coin is also notable for being the product of the Laodicea mint (modern Latakia in Syria).

Van Heesch, Last, 2.

J. van Heesch has provided the latest chronology for these anonymous civic bronzes of the fourth century AD. An active campaign of persecution against local Christians, abetted by Maximinus II, reached its height in Nicomedia, Antioch, and Alexandria. Churches were closed and property was seized from Christians who were expelled from many cities. These three major mint cities struck a series of small bronzes honoring the old Greco-Roman gods, Jupiter, Apollo, Tyche, and Serapis being among them. The persecutions subsided in AD 313, possibly as a result of concerns expressed by Constantine and Licinius, the emperors in the west.

Märkl states in his work "The Imperial Mints during the Reign of Claudius II. Gothicus and their Issues" that RIC attribute these coins wrongly to Milan (or Gallic mint) but they are in fact from Tarraco. No two mints in empire were allowed to strike same issue. Tarraco mint should have made "DIVO CLAVDIO GOTHICO" but this coin has only short (Siscian) legend: "DIVO CLAVDIO". Two known exemplars with short legend are mentioned by Märkl.

Pomona, a goddess among the Romans, presiding over fruit -trees. Her worship was of long standing at Rome, where there was a Flamen Pomonalis who sacrificed to her every year for the preservation of the fruit. She lived in the time of Procas, king of Alba, devoted to the culture of gardens, to which she confined herself and shunning all society with the male deities.
Vertumnus, under various shapes, tried to win her hand, sometimes he came as a reaper, sometimes as a haymaker, another time as a ploughman or a wine-dresser, a soldier and a fisherman, but to equally little purpose. At length, under the guise of an old woman, he won the confidence of the goddess. And, by enlarging on the evils of a single life and the blessings of the wedded state, by launching out into the praises of Vertumnus, and relating a tale of the punishment of female cruelty to a lover, he moved the heart of Pomona; whereupon, resuming his real form, he obtained the hand of the no longer reluctant nymph.

Felicitas Temporum ("Prosperity of the Times"), reflecting a Golden Age ideology, was among the innovative virtues that began to appear during the reigns of Trajan and Antoninus Pius. Septimius Severus, whose reign followed the exceedingly brief tenure of Pertinax and unsatisfactory conditions under Commodus, used coinage to express his efforts toward restoring the Pax Romana, with themes such as Felicitas Temporum and Felicitas Saeculi, "Prosperity of the Age" (saeculum), prevalent in the years 200 to 202. Some Imperial coins use these phrases with images of women and children in the emperor's family.

One of the scarcer issues of Constantine. The precise meaning of this curious legend is unclear, though various theories have been advanced. Dafne (or Daphne) was the name of a Constantinian fortress on the Danube, of the imperial palace in Constantinople, and of a celebrated park south of Antioch (the source of the city's water supply) where a statue of the Empress Helena had been erected. Daphne also means 'laurel' and the type may simply be in commemoration of Constantine's numerous military victories

Though a very popular reverse type for the Tetrarchs, this coin is only recorded for officina B and is listed as Rare, as are all 6 types in this rare issue (blank|A,B,Gamma / .SISC.). Curtis Clay surmises that all 6 of them were produced by all 3 officinae , making 18 variants. RIC records 8 of them, mine adds a 9th and there should be 9 more out there, though very rare indeed!

This coin is one of the vast issues struck for several years after a reform of the bronze coinage by Constantius II and Constans in conjunction with the 1100th anniversary of Rome in A.D.348. This reverse type is representative of Constans' crossing to Britannia in A.D.343.

Flavius Julius Delmatius was the son of Julius Constantius and the grandson of Constantius I. He was elevated to the rank of Caesar by Constantine I in September A.D.335 and given charge of Thrace, Macedonia and Greece. He was murdered together with the other members of his family after the death of Constantine I in the summer of A.D.337.

Spes was the Roman personification of Hope. In art Spes is normally depicted carrying flowers or a cornucopia, but on coins she is almost invariably depicted holding a flower in her extended right hand, while the left is raising a fold of her dress. She was also named "ultima dea" - for Hope is the last resort of men. On this coin, the Caesar, Diadumenian, the designated successor of the emperor, is identified as the future hope of the Roman people.

Ex NFA sale XXVII, 1991, 118.


Throughout the course of Imperial Roman coinage seven children were honored posthumously, with five of them being presented as gods. One of these divine children was an infant son born to Domitia, the wife of Domitian. Virtually nothing is known about him, and if he had not appeared on this rare coin type, he would have been little more than a footnote in the historical record. We may deduce from a passage in Suetonius, from historical circumstances, and from his infantile appearance on memorial coins that he probably was born in 83 and died soon thereafter. Regrettably, his name is nowhere recorded. Since the boy usually appears on the reverse of coins of Domitia, and Domitian seems to have divorced her in about 83 (roughly the time she would have given birth to the boy), it seems obvious that he died in infancy and that Domitian immediately deified him and celebrated him on coinage before he exiled his wife. Domitian’s grief must have been profound, for the boy’s presentation ranks among the most inventive on all Roman coinage; he is shown as a young Jupiter seated on a globe with his hands raised toward seven stars that represent the constellation of the Great Bear (Ursa Major). The boy is also represented on two other rare issues: denarii inscribed PIETAS AVGVST that show him standing before Domitia in the guise of Pietas, and sestertii with a similar scene but inscribed DIVI CAESAR MATRI or DIVI CAESARIS MATER. This particular denarius is a notable rarity, and is considered to be a muling of a Domitian obverse with a Domitia reverse.

Although the basic design of this coin is quite common, Although the basic design of this coin is quite common, I have been lead to believe that this variety is rare (if I read the info correctly this issue was produced only between August & September 13, AD 88). I did check this coin out on ascearch and found that the time of the search using “Domitian, Denarius” the search produced 988 coins. When I added the reverse legend to the search parameters I got one hit and that specimen was sold by “FORUM”. The listing did state it was very rare.

This is just the third known specimen with the interesting obverse legend which combines the "DIVI VESP F" variant and the "PONT" variant. The "DIVI VESP F" coins are rather easy to obtain from the bulk of the 81 AD coinage while the "PONT" coins are rare. A combination of the two only seem to occur on just two obverse dies used to strike very few curule chairs coins and the second for altar coins. Also the reverse legend is a scarce one, lacking the "TR P" mention. The other two surviving coins from these dies are: one in the Institut fur Antike Numismatik in Vienna and one from the Leo Benz collection, sold in 1999 as Lanz 94 lot 377.

Very rare with only a few surviving specimens, of which I can only confirm one in the Curtis Clay coll., struck from the same dies. Also this reverse die was used for the coin above (no. 160) and for the normal variant of this type struck with a different obverse die with DOMITIANVS. Another interesting feature is the oddly shaped V in AVG, which appears on other dies too and it is the "signature" of perhaps a Greek letter cutter. Read the full article by Christopher Lezak here. One of the pictured coins is the same mentioned above; it belonged to Mr. Lezak as well.

This reverse type commemorates the events during the civil war of 69 A.D. Upon the arrival of the flavian troops in Italy, Sabinus (the elder brother of Vespasian) was forced to seek refuge in the Capitoline fortress (the sanctuary of Jupiter). He also brought in Domitian, his nephew. Eventually the fortress was set on fire and Sabinus captured and executed. Domitian managed to escape and found shelter at one of his father's clients. Later in that place he built a temple for Jupiter Conservator (= the Protector). Source: Tacitus, Histories, the 3rd book, section LXXIV : "Domitianus.....ac potiente rerum patre, disiecto aeditui contubernio, modicum sacellum Iovi Conservatori aramque posuit casus suos in marmore expressam).

SALVS AVGVST, Salus seated left, feet on small pedestal, holding corn-ears.

This is the third reverse type of the reform, and was probably issued along IVVPITER in the first part of 83 A.D. Salus is represented here not in the common way as goddess of health, but as goddess of prosperity. This might be related to Domitian’s reformatory ideas, one of which actually took form in an edict enforcing grain growth against vine production. Obviously this measure encountered such strong opposition that it was impossible to apply; later Domitian had to revoke the edict.

The only occasion on which I found an obverse die match between coins with different Minerva types - see coin below. Since such links are virtually inexistent, and the style is clearly grouped around each reverse type, Prof. Carradice rightfully assumed that each reverse type was struck in its own separated officina. This seems to be the exception that confirms the rule. It is interesting that their style is very unusual, but they are certainly ancient and made of solid silver. Another detail is related to the bust type which is more of a "right shoulder forward" type instead of the usual simple head.

These series announce the Censorship assumed by Domitian in April 85 A.D. This office allowed him to remove any member of the Senate on the basis of moral misconduct; however this was used as a powerful political weapon and Domitian assumed it for life later that year. His decision also brought him deep hate from the entire senatorial class, hence today's negative view on this emperor. Until the recent years only the Germania reverse type was known with these dates but the Minerva types surfaced too. I know about 5 specimens with the Minerva 4 reverse including this one, all from the same dies. There is a 6th specimen struck with different dies, on which the reverse legend is written clockwise and the obverse legend has the TR POT variant instead of the usual TR P.

Excessevely rare issue and the last to be struck at the reformed standard.
RIC 65 is based on Cohen 176 but the coin does not exist in the Paris collection, according to Ian Carradice. In addition he could not confirm any specimen by the time he wrote his work on Domitian's coinage.

Extremely rare. RIC 66a is based on the B.M. coll. but not such coin is listed in the BMCRE vol. II later published, except a footnote questioning: "does the rev. legend .... occur with this reverse type?" Hence Ian Carradice omitting it from his thesis written in late '70's. At this moment I can only confirm the specimen from Leu 83 lot 751 struck from the same dies.

IMP number change caused by the victory of Agricola in Britain or perhaps an uncertain victory in Germania. Also, this is the period when the Dacians crossed the frozen Danube and defeated the governor Oppius Sabinus.

The current references list only two Minerva reverse types for this date: Minerva 1 and Minerva 4. The type in the picture appeared for the first time in the Sacra Moneta-Galata sale from September 1987 - different dies . The coin here is the second known to T.V. Buttrey, Ian Carradice and David Sear. Within this issue the last usual Minerva type (Minerva 3) is yet to be discovered.

Recently I was able to find close die style matches with three coins of this Minerva type, all dated IMP XIIII COS XIIII (January-August 88): CNG 57 lot 1195, CNG 58 lot 1163 and Rauch 69 lot 352. It is interesting that they display an aegis portrait, mark of an exceptional series. It is very likely that the coin above and the aegis variants of the regular issue form a special group marking the new consulship or perhaps another important event at the start of 88 A.D. Also my GERMAN specimen features a very similar portrait style, although it is smaller.

A most interesting coin, with a reverse that belongs to what would have become a major reform. Besides this type, Domitian introduced the "Minerva Victrix", the "altar" reverse and the "Domitian in military dress" reverse which is known from an unique coin. So far Maia was simply noted as "unknown woman", but recently, Prof. T.V. Buttrey properly identified her as Maia, the mother of Hermes, in his article that will appear this year in the Journal of Roman Archeology. From the few recorded specimens (less than ten, all struck with the same reverse die) this is most likely the finest.

Very rare, apparently the 9th recorded specimen. Judging from the military decorations, we might guess the tomb of a general or an altar dedicated to soldiers died in battle.

One of the reformed reverses mentioned above. Unlike the previous type, the coins were struck with more than one reverse die. So far I did not see a die match yet. It is interesting that most of these were engraved quite hastily in a poor style that perhaps would have been unacceptable in the previous years; perhaps Domitian ordered the reform to be carried out at a fast pace. Still, the specimen here was finelly executed.

Struck in the final week of Domitian's reign. Since he became emperor on 13 September 81 A.D., at the same date he received his first tribunician office which was renewed yearly. He reached TR P XV on 13 September 96, but five days later he was murdered. Of course, not many coins could have been struck in such a short period and much less survived to our time. The M4 type was not discovered in time for inclusion in Ian Carradice's thesis in late 70's and the coin here appears to be unique.
