ex David Conners

Although traditionally attributed as Kore Soteira, in my opinion this should more correctly be Persephone Soteira. The epithet Soteira (or ‘Savior’) refers to the Goddess’ role as the bringer of Spring and the return of life-giving crops. As this return must necessarily occur after Her abduction She is no longer Maiden (Kore) but rather Persephone, Queen of the Underworld and consort of Hades.

Philip III Arrhidaeus was the mentally deficient, bastard son of Philip II and a dancer, Philinna of Larissa, and therefore the half-brother of Alexander the Great. On the death of Alexander he was elected king by the Macedonian Army. He was, however, imprisoned upon his return to Macedonia and in October 317 B.C. he was executed under orders from Olympias, Alexander's mother, to ensure the succession of her grandson. Seleukos served under Alexander III as an infantry general. Following, Alexander's death, he served as Commander of the Companions in Babylon under Perdiccas and Satrap of of Babylon under Antipater. During the renewed Wars of the Diadochi, Seleukos founded the Seleukid Empire in 312 BC. The Seleukid dynasty ruled Syria until Pompey made Syria a Roman province in 63 BC.

Obverse: Helmeted Head of Athena Left.
Reverse: Herakles Strangling Nemean Lion; First Labor.

Tarentum, a city in Southern Italy, began as the Greek colony of Taras circa 706 BC. It was the only colony founded by the Lacedaemons. Taros was founded by Partheniae (Sons of Virgins), bastard sons of unmarried Spartan women and Perioeci (free men, but not citizens of Sparta) and named after the son of Poseidon, Taras. Other legends claim that either Taras himself or Herakles founded the city, both of whom are represented on much of the city's coinage. Taras won its first two wars against Rome for control of Southern Italy, but was conquered in 272 BC. The reverse of this coin shows Herakles strangling the Nemean Lion. According to legend, Hera drove Herakles mad, causing him to kill his wife and six sons before he regained his sanity. Seeking to atone, he visited the Oracle of Delphi, Pythoness, who told him that he must serve King Eurystheus of Tiryns for 12 years before being forgiven and gaining immortality. King Eurystheus ordered Herakles to perform 10 labors, but refused to count 2 of them because Herakles had help, leading to the 12 total mythical Labors of Herakles. The first of these was the slaying of a lion impervious to mortal weapons which was terrorizing the polis of Nemea. Herakles solved this feat by strangling it to death with his bare hands.

Following comment taken from http://www.asdenimes.com/ :

Un très bel exemplaire du dupondius d'Orange. Têtes adossées d'Agrippa (à gauche) et Octave (à droite). Très beaux reliefs.
L’as (ou dupondius) d’Orange est très rare et nombre d'exemplaires connus (quelques dizaines) sont souvent de médiocre conservation. Le dupondius d'Orange préfigure le dupondius de Nîmes frappé à partir de 28/27 av. J.-C. et qui reprendra l’avers quasiment à l’identique (y compris les légendes), avec les profils d’Octave devenu Auguste et d’Agrippa. Le revers sera interprété de façon parodique sur l’as de Nîmes, puisque la galère sera remplacée par le crocodile qui garde à peu près la forme générale du vaisseau et dont l’oeil prophylactique (pas visible sur cet exemplaire : voir les as de Vienne page suivante) deviendra l’oeil du crocodile. On y ajoutera la palme pour former le mat et quelques autres accessoires tout aussi symboliques.
La tête de bélier représentée dans le médaillon du revers serait l’emblème des vétérans de la légio II Gallica qui a fondé la colonie d’Arausio vers 35 av. J.-C.
On distingue 2 types de dupondius d'Orange : ceux dont les portraits occupent la plus grande partie de l'avers et ceux qui montrent des têtes plutôt petites.

Vespasian was proclaimed emperor in Alexandria Egypt on 1 July 69 and the legions in Antioch followed suit a week or so later. "At Antioch gold and silver currencies were struck" according to Tacitus in 'The Histories' - and here is one of those coins. Struck between mid July and 1 October of 69 this early tetradrachm was probably minted to help finance Vespasian's rise to the purple. These issues are found in hoards all over Judaea, indicating they were also used to pay the legions stationed there involved with crushing the ongoing Jewish revolt. This coin even now has some of the Judaean dirt still clinging to it.

Struck in good 'Antioch' style the coin is better in hand than my feeble attempt at photography would otherwise indicate.

Vespasian RIC II 00433 viewsVespasian. 69-79 A.D. Rome Mint. 71 A.D. July-Dec. (2.98g, 6h). Obv: IMP CAES VESP AVG PM, laureate head right. Rev: AVGVR (above) TRI POT (below); Priestly implements. RIC II 43, BMC 50, RSC 43.

Despite the irregular flan shape, this is a well preserved specimen of Vespasian’s earlier coinage. At this point in his coinage, the portrait is unmistakably and consistently that of Vespasian as with this example.

Another common Domitian in decent condition with full and legible legends. During this time, Domitian was rapidly accumulating Imperatorial titles indicating intense military activity. Domitian did not take the Consulship in 89 A.D., and with IMP XXI and TR P VIIII this issue came at the end of 89 A.D.

She doesn't come across as a great beauty in other busts, but I think she's rather beautiful in this version. She has a sad expression in her eyes, as if she can see what's coming for her...

Abbasid Governors, Transoxiana: Hamza (ca. 770s-790) Cast AE Fals, Kharashket (Nastich p. 48, fig. 45)1 viewsOne of 12 known specimens from a find reportedly centered on Kanka / Kharashket near Tashkent in modern Uzbekistan. All of them are were crudely cast and hence attribution is based on known information. The only publication that mentions these coins is Nastich.

Obv: In margin, لا إله إلا الله محمد رسول; within center circle, الله (There is no God but Allah. Muhammad is the apostle of Allah)
Rev: In margin, بسم الله كما أمر به معبد الا أمير; within central circle, حمزة (In the name of Allah from that ordered by the amir Hamza); outer circle.

The full name of Hamza is not known with certainty but Nastich believes the most likely candidate is Hamza b. 'Amr who is cited on a fals of Samarqand dated AH 153. A less likely possibility is Hamza b. Malik (fl. c. AH 176-177).

Here is a very common denarius struck between 1 January - 13 September 92 at a time of extremely high mint activity. The issue is the largest of the reign according to hoard finds (See Carradice, Coinage and Finances in the Reign of Domitian 1983). Domitian was campaigning against the Suebi and Sarmatians during 92, perhaps accounting for such an extraordinary output of coins.

The coin is in very fine style and struck on a tight flan. A most beautiful piece in hand.

R: ALFHEARD

Alfheard is a possible moneyer for Eanred. It is not clear if Alfheard is a distinct moneyer or whether it is an aberrant spelling of Heardwulf (frequently written as 'HEARDVVLF' or 'HERRDVVLF'. It is also possible that the name is Wulfheard. There are coins that depict a reverse of '+ALFHEARD' which raises the suspicion that Alfheard is a distinct individual. However, the style of their dies are quite similar.

Regardless, 'Alfheard' coins are fairly rare

Although in this version, Alexander seems to be charging forward with a raised hand or sword. It is Koinion of Macedonia, it is Alexander and it is Bucephalus, but I don't know the precise mint nor year. Let's call it 3rd century.

Ex FORVM 2010; Ex FORVM 2014.

With an army of mercenaries, through deceit, and after banishing or murdering some 10,000 citizens, Agathocles made himself master of Syracuse and later most of Sicily. Machiavelli wrote of him, "It cannot be called prowess to kill fellow-citizens, to betray friends, to be treacherous, pitiless, and irreligious" and cited him as an example of "those who by their crimes come to be princes." According to the historian Justin, very early in life Agathocles parlayed his remarkable beauty into a career as a prostitute, first for men, and later, after puberty, for women, and then made a living by robbery before becoming a soldier and marrying a rich widow.

“Kore, the Girl, is so intimately associated with her mother Demeter that they are often referred to simply as the Two Goddesses or even as Demeteres. Kore’s own enigmatic name is Persephone, or Phersephone, and in Attic Pherrephatta. In Homer she is mentioned alone and also in conjunction with her husband, Hades-Aidoneus, the personification of the underworld; her Homeric epithets are venerable, agaue, and awesome, epaine. Her two aspects, girl-like daughter of the Corn Goddess and Mistress of the Dead, are linked in the myth which, though ignored in heroic epic, is responsible almost exclusively for defining the picture of Demeter. The earliest extended version is the Homeric Hymn to Demeter, but Hesiod already alludes to it in the Theogony as an ancient and well known story, and aspects of the later tradition seem to preserve very ancient material.”
~ Walter Burkert (Greek Religion, 1985)

Persephone
I saw a tender maiden plucking flowers
Once, long ago, in the bright morning hours;
And then from heaven I saw a sudden cloud
Fall swift and dark, and heard her cry aloud.
Again I looked, but from my open door
My anxious eyes espied the maid no more;
The cloud had vanished, bearing her away
To underlands beyond the smiling day.
(From a fragment by Sappho)

O - La série des follis au H - O2 viewsCette émission de follis ayant un H sous le buste a été frappé à Trèves au temps de la première Tétrarchie (de 293 à 305 apJC).
Dioclétien et Maximien Hercule sont les Augustes, Constance Ier Chlore et Galère sont les Césars.
Dioclétien a la préséance sur Maximien Hercule. Il se mettra sous la protection de Jupiter et Maximien se mettra sous la tutelle de Hercule.
L'Empire est divisé en deux, Dioclétien prendra l'Orient avec Galère, ce seront les empereurs joviens.
Maximien Hercule et Constance Chlore prendront l'Occident, ce seront les empereurs herculéens.
Chacun aura un territoire réservé.

Cette phase particulière prend place durant la 3e émission de l'atelier de Trèves après sa réouverture par Dioclétien en 294.
Carl-Friedrich Zschucke situe cette 3e émission entre les années 295 et 297.
Tandis que pour le Roman Imperial Coins (RIC), elle se situerait entre 296 et 297.
Cette 3e émission se caractérise, par la lettre Gamma dans le champ droit au revers, qui dans le système de numération grecque vaut 3.

Durant cette 3e émission, trois officines frappèrent monnaies.
Il semble que la seconde officine soit la plus prolifique, les follis à la marque B sont les plus fréquents.
vient ensuite la première officine (A), alors que les monnaies de la troisième officine (C) semble beaucoup plus rares, on peut en déduire que cette officine a fermé durant la 3e émission, car aucune monnaie par la suite ne portera cette marque.

Le revers représente le Génie du Peuple Romain (GENIO POPVLI ROMANI)
Genius (le Génie) debout à gauche nu, coiffé du modius, le manteau sur l'épaule, tenant de la main gauche une corne d'abondance et de la main droite une patère .
Dans le champ gauche une lettre (A ou B ou C) pour l'officine.
Dans le champ droit la lettre grecque Gamma pour l'émission.
A l'exergue les lettres TR pour l'atelier de Trèves.

L'avers représente le buste nu et la tête laurée à droite de l'empereur ou du césar, avec la lettre H en exergue.

à noter la petite variante pour le buste de Constance pour la première officine, les deux pans du ruban qui tient la couronne pendent vers le bas, alors que sur les autres bustes, un pan pointe vers le bas et l'autre pointe vers le haut.

Signification de la lettre H :

Vincent Drost - Trésors Monétaires 23. a écrit:
Les bustes nus présentant la lettre H sous le buste sont l’apanage de cette seule émission et ne concernent à Larré que Maximien et Constance. Il s’agit là d’une référence explicite à la lignée herculéenne à laquelle se rattachent ces deux tétrarques. Dans quelques cas, la lettre H se retrouve toutefois sous les bustes de Dioclétien et de Galère. Ceci doit être interprété,comme dans le cas des exemples « d’échanges » de types de revers représentant Jupiter et Hercule entre Joviens et Herculéens abondamment illustrés dans le monnayage d’or de Trèves, comme un symbole fort de la parfaite union tétrarchique. Rappelons en outre qu’à Lyon, des monnaies divisionnaires associent, peu de temps avant la mise en œuvre de la réforme de 294, les bustes de Dioclétien et de Constance ou ceux de Maximien et de Galère
. De même, une autre monnaie divisionnaire lyonnaise au nom de Galère, un Jovien pourtant, présente un revers montrant Hercule enfant étranglant les serpents, accompagné de la légende PRIMV(M) AVSP(ICIVM)

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)"

The finder stated that he found both coiner's dies together. These dies are for antoninianii
because of their Diameters and probably they were produced under Maximinus Thrax or
Gordianus Pius since both types appear in that time.
It would be interesting to know why the dies got lost. Maybe during the fight with an enemy?
In any way it is very exciting.

The fortress-city of Kallatis was founded in Thrace at the end of the 6th Century BC by colonists from Heraclea Pontica. Kallatis began minting silver coinage circa 350 BC. In the year 28 BC, Kallatis was conquered by Licinius Crassus of Rome and made a part of the province of Moesia. The style on both the obverse and reverse are common of Alexander the Great's fractional drachm, bearing Herakles and his weapons. Kallatis claimed descent from Herakles through their mother city, Heraclea Pontica, which was founded by Megara, who claim Herakles as their founder.

Amyntas III, son of Arrhidaeus and father of Philip II, was king of Macedon in 393 BC, and again from 392 to 370 BC. In 393, he was driven out by the Illyrians, but in the following year, with the aid of the Thessalians, he recovered his kingdom. He is historically considered the founder of the unified Macedonian state. Through his youngest son, Philip II, he was paternal grandfather to Alexander the Great.

Philip III Arrhidaeus was the mentally deficient, bastard son of Philip II and a dancer, Philinna of Larissa, and therefore the half-brother of Alexander the Great. On the death of Alexander he was elected king by the Macedonian Army. He was, however, imprisoned upon his return to Macedonia and in October 317 B.C. he was executed under orders from Olympias, Alexander's mother, to ensure the succession of her grandson through Alexander III and Princess Roxanna of Bactria. Alexander IV was poisoned by the regent of Macedonia, Cassander, in 311 BC at age 12 when defenders of the Argead Dynasty began to declare that a regent was no longer needed and Alexander should be placed on the throne.

Dikaia was located in Thrace, in the region between the river Nestos and the river Hebros. It was founded by settlers from Eretria. Dikaia has also been known as “Dikaia Beside Abdera” to differentiate it from Dikaia in Macedonia. Eponymous mythical founder was Dikaios, son of Poseidon. Coins from Dikaia circulated as far as Egypt in ancient times, a testament to its large commercial activities. Another testimony to this is the large sums it paid in taxes to Athens in the 5th century BC; combined with Abdera, this amount reached 75 talents each year. Mentions of the city in the works of Strabo, Skylac, and Pliny indicate that it survived until Roman times. Dikaia has now been identified as the small archaeological site of Katsamakia.

Alexander III the Great, the King of Macedonia and conqueror of the Persian Empire is considered one of the greatest military geniuses of all times. He became king upon his father’s death in 336 BCE and went on to conquer most of the known world of his day. He is known as 'the great' both for his military genius and his diplomatic skills in handling the various populaces of the regions he conquered. Kabyle was an ancient Thracian city in modern South Eastern Bulgaria which was conquered by Philip II in 341 BC. Following the Celtic Invasion of Thrace, the royal Odrysian power was replaced by city rule. Kavaros was a Gallic King of Thrace, the only of them to strike coins.

My #1 or #2 favorite. I love the look that results from the worn dies often used on this style and the addition of Artemis. The flan has a slight bend that's apparent on the left side of the reverse, but I think it gives the coin more character rather than taking away from anything. The reverse also has a slight toning that I've heard referred to as "classic coin cabinet toning" or "gunmetal toning" that makes it look great. In hand, the overall presentation of this coin is just amazing in my opinion.

Owls were the first widely used international coin. They popularized the practice of putting a head on the obverse of a coin and an animal on the reverse. Athena was goddess of both wisdom and warfare and was the patron goddess of Athens. The owl is Athena's attribute or mascot. According to mythology, Athena at times took the very form of her owl. The owl species depicted on Athenian Owls is the Athena Noctua, also called the Little Owl or Minerva Owl.
