(16 mm, 2.35 g, 7h).

Struck from worn dies as are all examples of this the last civic hemidrachm issue of Epidauros.

CNG Classical Numismatic Review XXXIX, 1, Spring 2014, 976803 from the BCD Collection; ex-1979/80 Epidauros Hoard (CH VII, 69).

This emission was the last civic silver issue struck by Epidauros. It was struck on a reduced weight standard that was adopted throughout most of the Peloponnesos from around 250 BC. It utilized an obverse die from the preceding emission on which the Θ mint control (D2) was re-cut over the earlier E mint control (D1). In 243 BC the last of pro-Macedonian tyrants that had ruled Epidauros for the previous fifty years was forced to step aside by Aretos of Sikyon, the strategos of the Achaean League. This event probably bought to an end the civic silver issues of Epidauros, although bronze civic coinage continued down to ca. 200 BC. After this, a few Epidauran issues in silver and bronze, conforming to Achaean League standards, were made in the period leading up to the defeat of the League by Rome in 146 BC

Simply a great coin with wonderful detail and totally natural color.

This is one of the newest additions to my collection and was purchased at an estate auction outside Burlington, VT this year (2014).

My total cost is $4,500 ($3,800 hammer price, $570 Buyer's Premium + certification Fee & round trip registered mail & Insurance + the same for CAC). Simply a ridiculously cheap price for this grade.

1786 Vermont Copper1 viewsVariety RR7 (Rarity 3)

NGC VF-30 with CAC

Census (The last time I checked) - 63 NGC graded coins - 26 VF's (VF-30 = ?) - 22 graded higher
(From Heritage Auction Records Two VF20; eight VF25; three VF30; three VF35; ten = VF ?)

On June 15, 1785 the Vermont legislature granted Reuben Harmon, Jr. an exclusive franchise to make copper coins. They were to weigh 160 grs. which exceeded even the Tower Mint standards for halfpence. This weight was reduced to 111grs. in October of that year.

Vermont coinage initially had two basic designs with several varieties of each and one oddball issue

First design

Obv. – Shows the sun rising over the Green Mountains and a plough in the foreground with the date below. The obverse legend read VERMONT(I)S RESPUBLICA (the Republic of Vermont”). Later VERMONTIS became VERMONTENSIUM (better Latin).

Rev – Shows the All-Seeing Eye in the Blazing Sun within a constellation of 13 stars for the original 13 colonies. The reverse legend read STELLA QUARTA DECIMA or the 14th star referring to local pressure to join the union.

Second design

The mint operator petitioned the legislature to permit a change in design to approximate that similar to most other coppers then current (British halfpence and their local imitations including Connecticut). The Vermont legislature amended the act to specify the following:

Obv. – A head with the motto AUCTORITATE VERMONTENIUS, abridged

Rev. – A women with the letters, INDE: ET LIB: - for Independence and Liberty.

Third Design the “Immune Columbia” issue

Although the third design bears the date 1785, it was probably struck later. The obverse matches the requirements for the second design but the reverse shows a seated figure of Columbia (a poetical name for America) and the legend IMMUNE COLUMBIA, this reverse was not authorized by the Vermont Legislature.

Vermont coppers were produced from 1785 to 1788

I once had a very large collection of U.S. coins and this is the only coin I have that was part of my original collection.

My cost was $2,200, however, I actually did not have to pay a single cent out of pocket. But that is a long story.

Akanthos, Macedon

Obverse: Laureate head of Apollo to right.

Reverse: Seven-stringed lyre, around which AKANΘION

Notes:
- Akanthos was a colony of the Aegean Island of Andros.
- Situated on the Chalkidike peninsula, Akanthos was an important and powerful city. The city was never willing to join the Chalkidian League, 430 – 348 BCE, a federation based on Akanthos’ rival Olynthos. The Chalkidian league’s famous lyre coinage is well known, and bears the name of magistrates rather than city epithets. Yet the use of the lyre on this coin, along with the inscription AKANΘION, indicates there was at one time some significant cooperative arrangement between Akanthos and the Chalkidian League. The generally quoted period of issue, 470-390, is probably too early.

Until the discovery of the Epidauros hoard, the hemidrachms of Epidauros were exceedingly rare, a handful of examples being known. The Epidauros hoard brought an additional 145 examples to light. Most of the specimens found in the market in the last thirty years originated from the hoard, including the four examples in this collection. Alan Walker and BCD divided Requier’s catalogue into four series, versus the two originally detailed in the latter. The Requier Series number as quoted in the attribution reflects the subdivision of the Epidauros emissions by Alan Walker and BCD, while the bracketed number is the original series number of Requier.

Elsen 119, 7 December 2013, 100: ex- P. Schindel Collection

Price suggested that the EΠ monogram of this coin might be the ethnic of Epidauros. He dated this issue to ca. 280-250 BC. However, two specimens with light wear found in Commerce “Seleucus I” 2005 Hoard, buried circa 282/1 BC, imply a date for this issue in the early third century BC. During this period Epidauros was ruled by pro-Macedonian tyrants and the date suggests a possible association with the presence of Demetrios I Poliorketes in the northern Peloponnesos in the period 300-287 BC. Based on the five known examples of the type, the emission was struck from a single obverse and two reverse dies. On the first of these reverse dies the Φ is missing. The progression of a die break on the scalp of the lion skin headdress indicates that the coins from the reverse bearing the Φ were struck after those without the Φ. The Φ thus represents a later addition to epigraphy of the type, suggesting that the EΠ monogram is the primary control and thus possibly the abbreviated ethnic of Epidauros as suggested by Price.

Vespasian-RIC-147768 viewsAR Denarius
Ephesus (?) mint, 76 AD
RIC 1477 (R), BMC 483, RSC 375a, RPC 1453 (7 spec.)
Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG; Head of Vespasian, laureate, r., a small 'o' mint mark below neck
Rev: PON MAX TR P COS VII; Winged caduceus
aVF

These 'o' mint denarii (the 'o' is often not visible) struck for Vespasian, Titus Caesar, and Domitian Caesar are thought to have been minted at Ephesus due to a similar 'o' mint mark previously used at that mint. The types are the same as those struck somewhat contemporaneously at Rome. Mules are a hallmark of the series, perhaps indicating a lack of care in their production. The cadeceus type here is not a mule and copies a Rome reverse of Vespasian from 74.

Curtis Clay wrote these insightful comments concerning the series - "You write, 'thought to have been minted at Ephesus due to a similar 'o' mint mark previously used at that mint'. I regard that as a clear mistake by Buttrey and Carradice. Yes, annulets appear on some late Ephesus denarii too, but everything else is against attributing this later annulet series to Ephesus. Ephesus had its own reverse types, faithfully repeated from issue to issue. But the new series copies its rev. types from Rome, as you note. Ephesus had its own obv. legends too, usually dated with consulships. Quite different in the new series, again copied from Rome. The style is totally different. Errors, such as calling Titus PON MAX and many mules mixing obverses of one emperor with reverses of another, occur only in the later series, never at Ephesus. Against these blatant differences, the shared annulets are I think a mere trifle. A clear case of different mints in my eyes! So 'Ephesus (?)' should be dropped, and we should return to 'uncertain Asia Minor mint'."

Porous and fairly worn, however the major devices are intact and the portrait is quite fine.

S.780
Moneyer: unknown (or Aethelred)
Mint: unknown
O: Degenerate head (porcupine)
R: Aethiliraed (runic in two lines, reversed)

This coin is one of the few sceattas of the early Anglo-Saxon period with a definite name inscribed on it. This one has the name 'Aethiliraed' or 'Aethelred'. This has historically been attributed to Aethelred of Mercia, a petty king who reigned 674-705.

Others believe that Aethelred was a moneyer. In the same context, sceats are known of the Northumbrian king Aldfrith, who was a contemporary of Aethelred of Mercia, so it is certainly possible that a Mercian king might have put his name on a coin.

This issue commemorates the victory of Heraclius over the Sasanid kingdom in 629 AD.

After years of war between Romans and Sasanids, in 612, Heraclius launched a major counter-offensive in Syria in 613. He was decisively defeated outside Antioch by Shahrbaraz and Shahin, and the Roman position collapsed. Over the following decade the Persians were able to conquer Palestine and Egypt and to devastate Anatolia. Meanwhile, the Avars and Slavs took advantage of the situation to overrun the Balkans, bringing the Roman Empire to the brink of destruction.
During these years, Heraclius strove to rebuild his army, slashing non-military expenditures, devaluing the currency and melting down Church plate, with the backing of Patriarch Sergius, to raise the necessary funds to continue the war. In 622, Heraclius left Constantinople, entrusting the city to Sergius and general Bonus as regents of his son. He assembled his forces in Asia Minor and, after conducting exercises to revive their morale, he launched a new counter-offensive, which took on the character of a holy war. In the Caucasus he inflicted a defeat on an army led by a Persian-allied Arab chief and then won a victory over the Persians under Shahrbaraz. Following a lull in 623, while he negotiated a truce with the Avars, Heraclius resumed his campaigns in the East in 624 and routed an army led by Khosrau at Ganzak in Atropatene. In 625 he defeated the generals Shahrbaraz, Shahin and Shahraplakan in Armenia, and in a surprise attack that winter he stormed Shahrbaraz's headquarters and attacked his troops in their winter billets. Supported by a Persian army commanded by Shahrbaraz, the Avars and Slavs unsuccessfully besieged Constantinople in 626, while a second Persian army under Shahin suffered another crushing defeat at the hands of Heraclius' brother Theodore. Meanwhile, Heraclius formed an alliance with the Turks, who took advantage of the dwindling strength of the Persians to ravage their territories in the Caucasus. Late in 627, Heraclius launched a winter offensive into Mesopotamia, where, despite the desertion of the Turkish contingent that had accompanied him, he defeated the Persians at the Battle of Nineveh. Continuing south along the Tigris, he sacked Khosrau's great palace at Dastagird and was only prevented from attacking Ctesiphon by the destruction of the bridges on the Nahrawan Canal. Discredited by this series of disasters, Khosrau was overthrown and killed in a coup led by his son Kavadh II, who at once sued for peace, agreeing to withdraw from all occupied territories. Heraclius restored the True Cross to Jerusalem with a majestic ceremony in 629.

During Domitian's reign Minerva dominates the silver coinage of Rome, so it's not surprising to see her Greek guise Athena on this silver didrachm struck in Rome for distribution in Cappadocia. Here Athena can be seen holding an owl and spear, a type not minted for Minerva in Rome. Rome is attributed to be the mint by both style and the 6 o'clock die axis. This didrachm is prime evidence of some sort of central control over the precious metal issues during the Flavian era. Tariffed at 2 denarii.

Antigonos I Monophthalmos ("the One-eyed") (382 B.C. - 301 B.C.) was a nobleman, general, and governor under Alexander the Great. Upon Alexander's death in 323 B.C.,
he established himself as one of the successors and declared himself King in 306 B.C. The most powerful satraps of the empire, Cassander, Seleucus, Ptolemy and Lysimachus,
answered by also proclaiming themselves kings. Antigonus found himself at war with all four, largely because his territory shared borders with all of them. He died in battle at Ipsus in 301 B.C.
Antigonus' kingdom was divided up, with Seleucus I Nicator gaining the most. His son, Demetrius I Poliorcetes, took Macedon, which the family held, off and on, until it was conquered by Rome in 168 B.C. - Wikipedia

Thespiai, Boeotia Obol6 viewsAR Obol
Size: 12 mm Weight: .80grams

Thespiai, Boeotia
Early-Mid 4th century BCE

Obverse: Boeotian shield decorated with crescent (crescent near worn off on this coin).

Reverse: Head of Aphrodite Melainis (the black) to right, Θ to right, EΣ to left, letters retrograde.

Notes:
- Thespiai was one of the few Boeotian cities to oppose the Persian invasion – they sent a force to fight at Thermopylae with Sparta and remained for the final battle. After the Persian victory, Thebes finally sided with the Persians, leaving only Thespiai and Plataea as Boetian states opposing the invasion. Both cities were burned by Xerxes, yet Thespiai still furnished hoplites for the Battle of Plataea.

Obverse: D N CONSTANTIVS PF AVG
Diadem, draped, and cuirassed bust to left, holding globe.

Reverse: FEL TEMP REPARATIO
Soldier advancing right, dragging young barbarian from hut beneath tree.

Mint: TRS: Trier, second mint house

Notes:
- ‘FELix TEMPorvm REPARATIO’ = Happy times restored.
- This type was issued at 13 different mints, each using a different tree, shrub or plant.
- The Fel Temp reform coinage began around 348 CE and initially had a target weight of 5.5 grams and a diameter of 23 mm, with a silver content of 2-3%. From circa 351 the series was gradually debased in both weight and size until it was finally discontinued circa 357 CE. The weight and diameter of this piece indicate it was struck between 351 and 354 CE.
- This coin has a deep glossy green patina; I guess it was found in a sealed container. Only the high points show wear suggesting contact with other coins in a sealed environment.

Notes:
- A tiny scarce fraction, the letter T thought to be an indication of denomination (tetartemorion) rather than the initial of the city.
- The ruins of the important Temple of Athena Alea can still be seen in the modern town of Alea.

400 – 350 BCE

Obverse: Youthful male head to left, probably Apollo.

Reverse: Wheel with four spokes, M and A in two of the quarters.

Notes:
- Massalia is modern day Marseille, France.
- Founded by Phokaians circa 600 BCE, Massalia was by far the most important place of contact between classical Greece and the Gauls. Forming an alliance with Rome, Gaulish threats precipitated an appeal for Roman assistance in the late 2nd century BCE, which eventually led to the formation of the Roman province of Gallia Transalpina.

Sinope was originally founded by Greek colonists from Miletus ca 725 BC. Bithynia, Paphlagonia and Pontus bordered the southern shore of the Black Sea. It remained an important port, as indicated by the maritime themes on its coinage, for many centuries. Recently near- perfectly preserved remains of Byzantine-era vessels, probably bound for Sinope, have been found at the bottom of these anoxic waters.

A slightly chipped example. Bruttium was in the toe of Italy (Calabria). It is believed to have been settled by Greek colonists from Crotona, hence the KPO legend. The followers of the cult of Pythagoras resided here and the tripod/inverse tripod design may have been inspired by their ideas or, more likely, it depicts a trophy in Olympic events. The Greeks were mainly farmers then (and now) and were more attracted to homely themes like scenes from nature and sporting competition than philosophy as subjects on their coins.

Irene_Solidus.jpg
Irene Solidus32 viewsIrene AV Solidus. Syracuse, AD 797-802. IREN AΓOVST, bust facing, wearing chlamys and crown with pendilia and cross on semicircle between two pinnacles, holding akakia with right hand; two curved lines of throne behind shoulders / AΓOVST, bust facing, wearing loros and crown as obverse; in right hand, cross potent. DOC 3; Spahr 340; Anastasi 452; Sear 1601. 3.86g, 18mm, 12h.


Struck for the sole reign of Irene, after her supporters had captured, imprisoned and blinded her son and once co-regent Constantine VI in 792, this interesting issue depicts the Empress on both the obverse and reverse. A new style and a precedent that was occasionally followed by later rulers, Irene decided against reviving the cross-on-steps type, or the reverse figures representing the deceased members of the ruling family that had characterised the gold coinage of the Isaurian Dynasty, thus leaving us with coins that often have almost identical obverse and reverse designs. Her decision to simply strike herself on both sides is an excellent example of her desire to have ultimate power, strength and independence, making this an interesting coin which wonderfully relates the character of an incredibly spirited woman.

Two distinct types of solidi for Irene have been identified as being struck at Syracuse. Both have the empress wearing loros and holding cross potent on one side; on the other there is always a facing bust, but while on the one type she wears a loros and holds a globus cruciger, on the second she wears a chlamys, holds an akakia and is enthroned, as we see on this example. The seated figure, coupled with the inclusion of the name of the empress in the legend, make this likely to be the obverse of this type.

Notes:
- Trajan was granted his sixth consulship in 112 CE and the title ‘Optimvs’ in 114. The following year he was awarded the title ‘Parthicvs’, so this coin can be dated to 114 CE.

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.
