Monogram countermark (Griersons type E) on the reverse; this countermark is associated with Syria in the years just before the loss of Byzantine control in 636. Type E countermarks are somewhat variable in detail. The most thorough published analysis is in a 2006 paper by Schulze, Schulze and Leimenstoll: this specimen is an example of their sub-variety 1q.

Ceres was the Roman goddess associated with agriculture and grain crops. This type, mirroring one contemporaneously issued for Titus and Domitian, came with a series echoing agrarian themes.

Despite some wear, this specimen has a wonderfully centered and proportioned obverse.

While the picture may not depict it, the toning on this specimen is quite nice.

Obv: IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG P M; Head of Titus, Laureate, bearded, l.
Rev: TR P VIIII IMP XIIII COS VII P P; Venus stg. r. leaning on column, with helmet and spear
F+

Titus' 14th imperial acclamation dates between 1 July to at least before 8 September 79 as two documents indicate - one a letter Titus addressed to the city of Munigua on 7 September, and the other a military diploma dated 8 September, both still show him as IMP XIIII. Effectively, this coin was struck during the time of the Mount Vesuvius eruption on 24 August, although the traditional date of the disaster is now disputed and may possibly have been later in the year.

Left facing portraits of Titus are much rarer than right facing, perhaps to a ratio of 1:10. This left facing Venus type from the second issue after 1 July is extremely difficult to find. Listed simply as 'rare' by the new RIC, this is perhaps one of those types which might be a bit rarer than the rating indicates.

Somewhat worn, but nicely centered and in fine style. I've noticed over the years that those denarii of Titus with dots in the legend tend to be of a finer style, such as this coin.

Reverse: LIBERALITAS AVG / Libertas standing, holding pileus (Liberty cap) and sceptre.

RIC #187; Sear #8618.

The reverse type of this coin is interesting in that the legend speaks of LIBERALITAS, but the image is that of Libertas. There must have been some confusion between these two personifications in the mint at Antioch. This is probably understandable since the language in the East was Greek, not Latin.

(11 mm, 1.456 g, 10h).
ex- Forum Ancient Coins.

This coin was acquired with an attribution "unknown". Subsequently, CNG and others attributed the type to the Cycladic islands, either Syros, or Naxos Some years later this was corrected by CNG to an uncertain Lydian mint, possibly Sardes.

CNG Auction 100 note: "In previous sales, this issue has been variously attributed to either Cycladic Naxos or Syros. While both cities struck coins with the same types as on this issue, all of these cities bronzes consistently bear the first two letters of their respective ethnic flanking the base of the kantharos. On this issue, however, these Greek letters have been replaced by two Lydian letters, allowing its correct attribution to a mint in Lydia. Sardes is a possibility, as its spelling in Lydian was Sfard."

Unknown in references. Not too much to say about this, but I have to say, it sure looks a lot like the inscribed Northumbrian silver sceats/stycas of the late 8th century. Presumably this predates the Northumbrian coins, and perhaps it is the inspiration for that series.

Mint: unknown
O: AodoBERT
R: FREdIRI

Merovingian deniers present a number of difficulties in identification. Inscribed Merovingian deniers are quite rare, and are often illegible or nonsensical. This is certainly legible, but not quite clear. The name 'Aodobert' is not the name of a king, but could possibly be a moneyer or a religious figure. St. Aubert (Audbert) is the traditional founder of the bishopric of Cambray (Cambrai).

The reverse seems to depict "+FREdIRI". Unclear if this is a moneyer

ex Andre Cichos

Julian anticipated a successful trip to Antioch, but his experience there was a disappointment to him. The people chided him for his appearance, causing him to write The Misopogon (or Beard Hater), a satire on himself but also a scathing indictment of the people of Antioch, whom he considered soft and degenerate, and wrote mockingly I say that you are liars and dancers, well skilled to dance in a chorus".
The relationship declined even more after the locals burned the temple of Apollo at Daphne, and further still after Julians efforts to make economic reforms designed to end government corruption and ease famine in the city caused by years of drought.
Julian finally left Antioch to march east and fulfill his plan to conquer Persia, but met his death in the attempt. Some say that the spearhead removed from his liver was actually Roman, but we will probably never know for certain.

REV Bust of emperor wearing stemma, divitision, collar piece, and jeweled loros of a simplified type; holds in r hand labarum headed scepter and in l. Globus cruciger.

Metropolitan Issue were minted in Constantinople, each of these coins had an added silver content unknown for this issue. The entire tetartera of Alexius III are much harder to find due to debasement of trachea virtually rendering the Tetarteron useless. The Metropolitan issues were believed to be produced only for two years 1195-1197.

Size 18/19mm

Weight 2.7gm

DOC lists 1 example with weight of 3.38gm and 19mm

This example matches the weights of my other example, the only difference between the two is this is slightly smaller but a slightly thicker flan.

The regnal year 3 tetradrachms struck at Alexandria are not quite as frequently encountered as those of year 2. Notice the style of the portrait is strikingly similar to the contemporary 'Syrian' tetradrachms (see my RPC 1947 for comparison). Strong evidence that some of the 'Antioch' issues were actually struck in Alexandria.

Despite the wear, the bold portrait of Vespasian is quite pleasing.

RIC 165 GOBL 718b CUNETIO 1348

Rather an unusual style for the Griffin types, an odd looking head which might be the die cutters attempt at having the rear wing in a more foreshortening position or on second thoughts it is more likely to be an attempt at getting the head looking up (like some of the other animal types do). Also notice the tail is cut with lines and circles giving it a somewhat bony-like appearance.

The hippocamp reverse type was undoubtedly one of the first non-incuse didrachms minted at Taras, occuring at the very beginning of the fifth century. However these small module coins were minted slightly later than the spread-flans, probably 470-450 BC.

"He [Poseidon] towers on high above the peaceful waves, urging his team of Hippokampoi with his three-pronged spear: frontwise they run at furious speed amid showers of foam, behind they swim and blot out their footprints with their tails."

Note from CNG.
Under Trajan and Hadrian several series of bronze quadrantes were struck in the names of the imperial mines in Noricum, Dalmatia, Pannonia and Moesia (Dardania). These operations supplied metal for the mint at Rome, and perhaps were the sites of workshops to produce coinage for local circulation or as donatives. Some scholars believe these pieces were struck at Rome itself, and served some unidentified function, much as the contemporary "nome" coinage struck at Alexandria in Egypt. Whatever the circumstances, these pieces saw limited use, and, except for one rare type struck by Marcus Aurelius, were not issued at any other period.

Nola was located about 15 miles northeast of Neapolis, in a fertile region between the coast and the Appenine Mountains. The city still survives to this day, but very little is left of the ancient polis.
Nola is known as the city in which Augustus died in 14 AD.
Their coins are nearly identical to those of Neapolis and nearby Hyria, and in fact may actually have been struck in the former city.

aVF

This regnal year 2 tetradrachm in "Alexandrian" style was most likely struck in Alexandria and then sent to Syria for circulation. Kevin Butcher speculates these "Alexandrian" styled tets were ordered by the southern Syrian cities from the Alexandria mint for circulation in that part of the province. It's of interest to note that these tetradrachms in which Titus' portrait is featured on the reverse may have been circulating in the region where he commanded the legions fighting the Jewish War. The star in the reverse left field may be some sort of mint control mark.

Although the flan is somewhat flatly stuck near the bottom and the surfaces a bit rough, in hand it's a really nice piece. The main attraction here is the fine portrait of Titus on the reverse.

about VF

Q. Sicinius was a follower of Pompeius. The rev. is full of symbolic: The caduceus stands for Pompeius' victory over the Cilician pirates and the free trade after their defeat. The palm branch symbolizes all his victories. The wreath seems to stand for the chaplet which was given to him by the Roman People (Mommsen, Rmische Geschichte).

This type has been struck at a critical point of the Civil War, late February or early March 49 BC, probably outside of Rome. Caesar has already crossed the Rubicon on January 1. Sicinius fled with the other Pompeians to Greece end of March. He seems to be the last Republican mint master.

F+

Alexandria struck the very first coinage for Vespasian in July and August of 69 after the legions under Tiberius Alexandria hailed him as emperor on 1 July. This coin is dated to his first regnal year at Alexandria and was minted in those heady days. The portrait is similar to the tetradrachms struck for Vitellius, most likely because the engravers had no image of Vespasian to go by. According to Tacitus (Hist. III, 48) he had not yet arrived in Alexandria by the time reports of the battle of Cremona reached him in the middle of November. Fittingly on the reverse, Alexandria (or Alexander the Great?) is seen here offering a victor's wreath, presumably to Vespasian, and holding a sceptre.

It's difficult to find these Alexandrian tets in decent condition. They are typically well circulated and worn and this example is no exception, but it's nicely toned and the heavy wear has not been too unkind.

Reverse:- DIANAECONS[AVG], Doe standing left, looking right
Exergue:- E
RIC 177 GOBL 727b CUNETIO 1365

This is likely to be a rare variation of the left standing doe looking right, where the front legs are in the reversed position to the usual type. This is only example I've personally seen so far. The Left standing Doe is a good deal more uncommon than Right standing Doe the Cunetio lists 37 verses 228, GOBL records 38 verses 227, while La Verena 16 against 128 .

As a note of caution when comparing the figures quoted in the Gobl with those of Cunetio / Verena or other hoards. Some of the examples pictures in Gobl are referenced as coming from these hoards, therefore it is probable that some of these coins were also likely to have been included in his survey figures. Since the total numbers in Gobl clearly don't included all the coins from Cunetio & Verena or other hoards, this "double bubble" comparison could potentially skew the figures (probably making rarer coins seem less rare). That said Gobl's figures are not so far away in terms of percentages from either the Cunetio or Verena hoards & this may well have been a deliberate undertaking by the author.

Metropolitan Issues were minted in Constantinople, each of these coins had an added silver content of 3% and were also issued with a very light silver wash (Silver traces are common on Cosmopolitan issues but intact fully silvered coins are very rare.) These more than likely were tariffed at a higher rate than the Thessalonica issues that have been shown to have no silver content. Cosmopolitan issue are in general far scarcer than the Thessalonica issues

DOC catalog lists 3 examples with weights ranging from 1.6gm to 3.49gm and size is universal at 18mm

This is a difficult coin to obtain, I have only seen now four in the last 15 years, I did the photo in B+W for detail.

Ptolemy Soter integrated Egyptian religion with that of the Hellenic rulers by creating Serapis, a deity that would win the reverence of both groups. 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.

Ive sought a coin with a portrait of Lepidus, and while worn, the obverse portrait is clearly identifiable. 43 B.C. saw the establishment of the Second Triumvirate giving Lepidus, Antony, and Octavian dictatorial powers over the Roman State.

Vespasian RIC II 0964 Legend Error7 viewsVespasian. 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. 77-78 A.D. (3.45g, 17.5mm, 6h). Obv: CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVS, laureate head right. Rev: AANNONA AVG, Annona std. l. with sack of corn ears. RIC II 964; RSC 28.

Annona is the goddess or personification of the grain supply in Rome. This example has an interesting obverse legend error of AVS instead of AVG, the second in my collection to save the same letter mix up (V980). The obverse is well centered and has a good portrait of Vespasian as well.
