Baktria,_Diodotos_II_Tetradrachm_-_unknown_type~0.jpg
Greek, Diodotos II Tetradrachm - Unrecorded Baktrian.142 viewsBaktrian Kingdom, Diodotos II, ca. 235-225 BC, AR Tetradrachm
Diademed head of Diodotos II right. / ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ ΔIOΔITOY (of King Diodotos). Zeus striding left, hurling thunderbolt in right hand, aegis over extended left arm; eagle standing in lower inner left, TI monogram in outer right field
The only known example of the TI mint control on the Holt F series - previously unrecorded.
Based on die matches to Holt F8.2 (obverse) and Holt F8.3 (reverse with modified controls) the coin is an immediate precursor to the Holt F8 group and thus fits between Holts F7 and F8 groups. Struck at Mint "B" (probably Baktra/Balkh) ca. 230-225 BC.

We were unable to find another example with this combination of control symbols. Thompson lists the lion head and AP monogram control symbols for Lysimachia, but not together. The ΠA monogram is not listed for not for Lysimachia but is listed for other mints.

Ptolemy_tyre_tet~0.jpg
Greek, Ptolemy II Tetradrachm 151 viewsSilver tetradrachm, Svoronos 626 var (no monogram) or Svoronos 644 var (D behind ear), VF, Phoenicia, Tyre mint, weight 14.076g, maximum diameter 27.4mm, die axis 0o, obverse diademed head of Ptolemy I right wearing aegis; reverse PTOLEMAIOU BASILEWS, eagle standing left on thunderbolt, Tyre monogram and club left; rare;

Ex Forvm

Svoronos' description for tetradrachm 626 is the "same as the gold pentadrachm." In the notes for the pentadrachm he notes the type sometimes has a Tyre monogram, but the notes for the tetradrachm 626 discuss only countermarks and not a monogram. The monogram is absent on the plate coin.

Svoronos 644 is be marked with a tiny D behind Ptolemy's ear. On this coin the mark appears to be absent.

SeleuKid_kingdom,_Seleukos_I,_AR_tetradrachm,_Babylon_II_Mint_-_unpublished_with_erased_anchor.jpg
Greek, Seleukos I Nikator, 312-281 BC, Seleukid Kingdom, Babylon, AR Tetradrachm - urecorded with the anchor normally found in the left field erased from the die156 viewsHead of Herakles right wearing lion skin. / ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ AΛΕΞANΔPOY Zeus Aetophoros seated left, circled NE monogram in left field, large Π beneath throne; remnant die erased anchor symbol in outer left field.
Price 3347 var. (anchor in left field, attributed to Arados); Houghton Group II, Series H, 69-76 var. (anchor in left field); SC 94.3(c) var. (anchor in left field). Obverse die macth to SC 94.4; SNG Copenhage 670; HGC 9, 10g (C). Babylon II (Native or Satrapal Mint) 311-305 BC. A unique example of the type undocumented with the erased anchor.
(27 mm, 17.29 g, 5h).

This is the only known example of SC 94.3c that bears a reverse struck from a die on which the anchor that is normally found in the outer left field has been erased. It is the one of two erased anchor issues in the name of Alexander outside of museum collections. The other example SC 94.5 is also to be found in the LT collection. The anchor erasure has not been documented on SC 94.3c, although it is known on three examples of SC 94.4 that bear a ΠAT monogram mint control in the place of the circled NE monogram found on this coin. The obverse of this coin is a die match to an example of SC 94.4, SNG Copenhagen 670, illustrated in Morkholm Plate V, 82. This previously unrecorded example of anchor erasure is further evidence that the erasure was a systematic and deliberate act in the Babylon II mint that appears to have occurred around the time that Seleukos adopted the royal title.

Sogdiana,_Imitative_Antiochos_I__AR_drachm_.jpg
Greek, Sogdiana, Imitative Antiochos I Soter, 281-261 BC, AR Drachm 54 viewsLaureate head of Antiochos right.
Retrograde legend ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ ANT[I]OXOY curving from left to below and before a bridled horned horse head right, circled Δ to far right.
SC 461-462 (var. controls); HGC 9, 136 (var. - controls) (R3).
Sogidana, uncertain mint, mid-third century BC.
A unique and unrecorded variant of SC 461-462.
(17 mm, 2.86 g, 6h)
ex- William K. Raymond Collection

The crude style, the retrograde semi-circular legend, the disposition of the mint control and the low weight of this coin are indicative of a Sogdian imitation of the Antiochos I drachm type that was issued by the mint at Ai Khanoum in Baktria during the period 281-261 BC. Unlike the imitative coin the official issue was struck on the Attic weight standard of 4.3 grams. The style of this coin and the full replication of the Ai Khanoum mint control place it early in the Sogdian imitative series, possibly contemporaneous with the lifetime Antiochos I issue that it imitates. Marcanda/Samarkand and Bukhara are likely candidates for the origin of this coin.

From Ivan Varbanov "Yes, the coin is very interesting and rare. For pos. 1545 I cite the Moushmov description. I have no picture of this coin. So we can't be sure if the Moushmov coin is with 4 or 5 stars. This is the problem of his catalogue - it gives us insufficient information. And this makes your coin very attractive."

This legend break is unrecorded for this type- in combination with extremely rare bust type and scarce reverse type. A fantastically rare coin.

From Curtis Clay: This type is known for Diocletian from officinae 1-2, 4-5 and 7. For Galerius there are coins from officina 3 (added: 'Known also for Maximian, RIC'!). For Constantius coins from officina 6 (S) were expected but not yet known.This can be changed when more coins are coming out of Turkey or Syria

Unlisted in RIC for this ruler. (Cf. RIC VII : 385 but with addition of palm-branches). This mintmark is not associated with Delmatius in RIC, it is an unrecorded issue associated with the next mint mark group and should be included between RIC 389 and RIC 390. The issue with this mint-mark is listed by RIC (p.344) only for Constantine II, Constans and Urbs Roma and all of these are rated as R5, extremely rare.

This coin was minted some time between Domitian's seventh consulship in 80 AD and the death of Titus in 81 AD. The reverse type appears to be identical to RIC II 727 (Vespasian); BMCRE 747 (Vespasian) however, unlike this coin, the listed coin has the obverse inscription CAESAR AVG F DOMITIANVS COS VI. This coin appears therefore to be a continuation of that type after Vespasian's death with a different obverse inscription.

Perhaps an example of the chaos that reign at the imperial mint in 81 AD on Domitian's accession, note the unusual tailed V in AVG which may indicate a Greek celator. The Obverse is as RIC 10B, reverse as RIC 14. I haven't seen another dolphin denarius like this one.

This coin was minted in 86 A.D. The Minerva standing is a very common reverse for Domitian's denarii. Neither RIC nor RSC list a Minerva standing for Domitian with TRP VI, IMP XII, COS XII. According to the seller, this coin was once part of the collection of the San Francisco Museum of Fine Arts. The reverse of the coin was reportedly damaged by an adhesive sticker which ate into the silver.

Roman Empire, Elagabalus, 16 May 218 - 11 March 222 A.D. Silver denarius12 viewsPossibly unique! The combination of this reverse legend with a recumbent bull behind the altar is apparently unpublished and this is the only example known to Forum. The bull is present on a similar type with the reverse legend INVICTVS SACERDOS AVG.


Silver denarius, RSC III 213c var. (no bull); BMCRE V 269 var. (same); Hunter III 68 var. (same); RIC IV 52 (S) var. (same, also no horn); SRCV II 7538 var. (same), NGC XF, strike 5/5, surface 3/5 (2412840-011), Rome mint, weight 3.07g, maximum diameter 18.4mm, die axis 0o, Jan 222 A.D.; obverse IMP ANTONINVS PIVS AVG, horned, laureate, draped and bearded bust right, from the front; reverse P M TR P V COS IIII P P, Elagabalus standing slightly left, wearing Syrian priestly dress, sacrificing from patera in right hand over flaming altar at feet on left, club (or branch) cradled in left hand and arm, star in upper left field, recumbent bull behind altar; NGC certified (slabbed); extremely rare.

Coins with a horned portrait and the title TR P V were struck in January 222 A.D. After some days or weeks the horn was removed from Elagabalus' portrait. Elagabalus had shocked the public with bizarre behavior including cross dressing and marrying a vestal virgin. Removing the unusual horn from his portrait was probably part of a last ditch effort to show that he had changed, dropping his peculiar Syrian ways. The effort failed. On 11 March 222, Elagabalus and his mother were murdered, dragged through the streets of Rome and dumped into the Tiber.

Curtis Clay:
This coin seems to be from the same obv. die as von Aulock, Pisidien II, no. 568, pl. 13. ANTWNEINO before face, vA attributes to Elagabalus, though the same coin, in Athens, had earlier been published as Caracalla.
Zeus seated right is a new type for Elagabalus at this mint, though vA has it both earlier, for Septimius and for Caracalla under Septimius, and later, for Sev. Alex. and Tranquillina.

Rev.: FECVND AVGVSTA (around) S C (in field), Fecunditas standing left, holding a child in her arms, two more standing left and right of her raising their right hands.
RIC (Aurelius) unlisted, legend corresponds to RIC 1635 and the representation to RIC 1649
ex Aeternitas Coins & Antiquities (via VCoins)

This type refers to the growing family of Marcus Aurelius and Faustina Jr. The three girls represent the three surviving children (of a total of 7 born) around end of 159 to early 160: Annia Galeria Aurelia Faustina (age 14), Lucilla (12) and Fadilla (1).

Additional information provided by Curtis Clay (19 july 2012): "This type commemorating the birth of a third survivng daughter usually has the legend IVNONI LVCINAE, whereas the type FECVND AVGVSTAE commemorates the birth of the next daughter about a year or so later and shows Fecunditas/Faustina holding two children in her arms while two more stand at her feet.

Strack 1335 knew a sestertius like yours in only one specimen, in Naples, but unfortunately does not illustrate the coin.

The Naples collection was stolen in 1977. Your coin is of nice quality, and has an old-collection look, lightly cleaned on the reverse. I would not be at all surprised if it is the actual Naples coin! ..."

Not listed in RIC nor Cohen. Curtis Clay confirms that this is a new variety, giving the following additional information: "The obv. die is Kraay's A88, Aes of Galba pl. VII, known to him with rev. Victory holding Palladium, one spec., Paris = Giard 173, pl. XII = RIC 353. That's the only obv. die Kraay or RIC knew with this exact obv. legend and the laureate, draped bust. ... This LIBERTAS PVBLICA rev. die was apparently unknown to Kraay in any combination."

Other AVGG coins of the same issue at Milan: pl. 84, 1044u, just cited; 1045o (apparently from the same VIRTVS AVGG rev. die, different sort of armored obv. die). Pl. 72, 937z (ADVENTVS AVGG Emp. on horseback, obv. of Saloninus as Caesar). Pl. 71, 929r (bronze medallion, ADLOCVTIO AVGG Emp. and two attendants on platform addressing troops)." Markus Weder knows of just one other specimen of my coin, ex Gibraltar hoard, it is in his own collection.

GALLIENVS AVG, Radiate head right
RESTITVTOR VRBIS, Roma seated left
Weight 1.59g

Possibly connected with other material of this period such as the sestertii with GENIVS P R busts. Possibly a trial for an issue that was never, for some reason, actually struck in any numbers. The reverse type and legend are taken from issues of Septimius Severus several decades earlier

Roman Empire, Licinius I. AE332 viewsThis is a very nice example of an AE3 reduced follis for Licinius I, from the mint at Arelate, officina (workshop) 1

Obv inscr: IMP LICINVS P F AVG. The bust of the emperor is wearing a laurel wreath and a cuirass, so it is a B5 class bust. This example is a bit special because the name of the emperor is misspelled.

Rev.: SOLI INVICTO COMITI, with C and S in the two fields r and L, and PARL in the exergue, which is the mint mark for Arelate officina P (for Prima = first) (as I mentioned above).

The coin is a variant of a coin listed in the standard reference Roman Imperial Coinage, vol VII, as #155 for the mint at Arelate (ancient Arles, France). Because of the misspelling this coin is not actually listed, and the "normal" version is rated as an R4.

Apparently this arrangement of the rev. legend is rare: usually it's COS II in exergue and S - C in field. Of seven specimens in the British Museum, only one has the arrangement like this one, with COS II in circular legend and SC in exergue.

That BM coin, no. 862, has a cuirassed bust like this, but head laureate rather than bare.

maybe unique! Variant with Diocletian: CNG 63, Lot: 1104.
4,39g

few AE tetradrachms with weight 6-8g are known but this is clearly smaller flan just like CNG 63, Lot: 1104.

CNG:
" The Isis festival was a major celebration in Rome in the 3rd and 4th centuries, heralding the arrival of the ship of Isis (navigium Isidis) from Alexandria on the 5th of March. Such coins or tokens were first struck by Diocletian at Rome to mark the arrival of the ship, but this item, with its Alexandrian flan and Greek legend, was clearly struck in Egypt, perhaps upon the ship's departure. It may be one of the last issues struck in Alexandria before the closure of the mint in 296 AD. Alfldi proposes that the festival associated with the Isis ship (also known as carrus navalis) became, in the Middle Ages, the carne levare or carnival."

Provenance: Roma Numismatics, Sep. 2010
Wildwinds reference (this coin): http://www.wildwinds.com/coins/ric/lucilla/RIC_1770cf.txt

Wildwinds citation (from the text accompanying Roma numismatics sale):
"Lucilla, AE As. 9.97g; 26mm. 164-166 AD. Obv: LVCILLAE AVG ANTONINI AVG F, draped bust right. Rev: unclear legend, Venus standing right, holding apple and sceptre, S-C across fields. cf. RIC 1770; Cohen 80. This is the only Lucilla coin in RIC which has a deity standing right holding a sceptre (there is a Diana holding a torch with both hands). The legend seems to contain ..IT or AT.. and ends in A, but there are no coins in RIC which have such a legend. This coin is almost identical to one sold by Noble Coins Australia with the same description, though that one was a dupondius)"

Note by Johny SYSEL: "It could be mule combining Lucilla obverse with Faustna II reverse. But definitely there is Laetitia on reverse not Venus."

Note by Curtis Clay: "I think Johny S is right: a mule with a LAETITIA reverse die meant for Faustina II. Rome mint mules are rare. This one might help to establish the chronology of Lucilla's and Faustina's respective coinages."

This Bust type is not listed in RIC. Also this coin is undoubtedly of the style of Serdica but the emission mark does not match that of any published emission mark for Serdica. There is growing evidence of an unlisted second series of mintmarks used during the third emission of Serdica using Greek letters that ran in parallel to the Roman equivalent.

This is a variant of RIC 401 with Bust type C. The full seplling of the reverse legend is not noted by RIC but is noted by Pink.
The portrait of this coin is also an early one, which is based on Tacitus/Florian and places the coin to very early in the second emission, later coins in this emission have a more Probus like portrait.

Curtis Clay: For some reason coins of Alex. and Maesa under Tereventinus are rare. Pick knew only two types, three specimens, since 1064 shows Mamaea not Maesa. Hristova/Jekov pp. 189 and 191 try to add two new types, but the readings of empress and/or governor seem doubtful.

I have not been able to attribute this coin with certainty. Valentinian III had a similar reverse for Cherson, except those were AE2s and the bust was helmeted. On mine, the bust is diademed and the coin is much smaller and thinner. I think this is probably a variant, or possibly an imitation, of the Cherson issue.

Rev - No legend. Vespasian laureate, standing in triumphal quadriga r., horses pacing, holding branch in r. hand and sceptre in l.

This reverse celebrates Vespasian and Titus' Judaean Triumph at Rome.

Most examples of this reverse type are Antioch mint issues which copy the Rome mint type.

This example is unusual because of the obverse legend IMP CAES VESP AVG PM. RIC and RSC only record this reverse with COS IIII added to the end of the legend. BMCRE does not have either one listed but has a note for the COS IIII type.

This example is a rare official variant which Ian Carradice knows of only three other specimens.

This is an unlisted mule with the obverse corresponding to RIC 759 (Vespasian) and reverse corresponding to RIC 761-762 (Titus). RIC 760 is also a mule using the same Titus reverse, but with obverse legend VESPASIAN (RIC 757), not VESPASIANVS like this one. Belongs to issues associated with bronzes of smaller denominations minted for Syria.
