Trajan Provincial2 viewsTrajan 98-117 AD. AR Tridrachm. Uncertain Mint. 112-114 AD. (24.17 mm, 10.27 gr) Obv: Laureate head right. Rev: Aquila between two signa, that to the left surmounted by wreath, that to the right by hand; all with hand grabs to left.
Metcalf, Caesarea pp. 148-9; Sydenham, Caesarea 225; SNG ANS 1163 (Bostra); Kindler p. 97.

Ex: Romadrome

"W. Metcalf, on the basis of hoard evidence, rejects the traditional attribution of this coin type to Caesarea in Cappadocia. He suggests the mint of Bostra in Arabia. However, Ari Kindler in his monograph on the coinage of Bostra sees no evidence for it being from Arabia. The piece remains in limbo. " (source: CNG)

Some newer sources claim that the mint is neither Cappadocia nor Bostra but Tyre in Phoenicia.
(source: http://www.acsearch.info/record.html?id=353831)

David Atherton:

"And to further confuse the matter - many large silver coins were minted in Rome and distributed in the east during the Flavian era - the cistophorus comes to mind. Your coin does have a 'Rome mint' look to it."

1791 AE Halfpenny Token. Hull, Yorkshire.0 viewsObverse: No legend. A ship sailing right, two laurel branches below.
Reverse: HULL HALFPENNY / 1791. Coat of Arms of Hull (a shield bearing three crowns vertically) between two sprigs of oak with eight acorns on each branch.
Edge: PAYABLE IN HULL AND IN LONDON • X X •.
Diameter 29mm | Die Axis 7
Dalton & Hamer: 22

This token was issued by Jonathan Garton who was a linen draper with a business in the market place in Hull.
The dies for this token were engraved by John Gregory Hancock who was also probably responsible for manufacturing it.

The “three crowns” have been used as Hull’s coat of arms since the early 1400s. The College of Arms, the institution which regulates heraldry in England, confirmed the right of the Borough (now City) of Hull to use the crowns in the 1600s. Since then, virtually every public building in the City has been decorated with the coat of arms.

A depiction of the shield in stained glass in St Mary’s Church Lowgate dates from the reign of Richard III (1483-85) and is among the earliest versions to survive. It is part of the east window and is shown below.

Campania. Neapolis AR Nomos10 viewsCirca 275-250 BC. AR Nomos (21mm, 7.21 g, 11h). Sambon–; HN Italy 586; BMC 87; SNG France–; SNG ANS–. Obverse: Diademed head of nymph left, wearing triple-pendant earring and necklace; to right, Artemis standing right, holding torch in both hands. Reverse: Man-headed bull walking right; above, Nike flying right, placing wreath on bull's head; IΣ below; [N]EOΠOΛITΩN in exergue. Good VF, toned. Scarce symbol for issue.

Ex Gorny & Mosch 125 (13 October 2003), lot 21. Ex Classical Numismatic Review XXXIX No. 2 Summer 2014, lot 979726.

The obverse of early Neapolitan coins represent the siren Parthenope who, according to legend, committed suicide after her failed attempt to seduce Odysseus and his shipmates as they passed the Sorrento peninsula. Her body was washed up on the shore of nearby Megaride, a tiny island in the Bay of Naples. The locals interred her in Mount Echia, now the hill of Pizzofalcone. The Sirens were originally the islands found at the mouth of the river Achelöos in Greece which flowed into the Ionian Sea between Akarnania and Aetolia. The man-headed bull on the reverse of the coins was meant to represent Achelöos, the greatest water god of ancient Greece and father of Parthenope. This coin, however, belongs to a later group known as Class VI (Numismatic Circular, vol. 14, 1906). The latest coins with the obverse head always facing left may well be identified as the head of Dia-Hebe. She is associated with Dionysus Hebon and the Neapolitan bull on the reverse was reinterpreted as the bull with which Dionysus Hebon was always depicted.

1794_Chichester___Portsmouth_Halfpenny.JPG
1794 AE Halfpenny Token. Chichester and Portsmouth, Sussex.0 viewsObverse: IOHN HOWARD F•R•S PHILANTHROPIST•. Bust of John Howard facing left.
Reverse: CHICHESTER AND PORTSMOUTH • / HALFPENNY; Arms of the Borough of Portsmouth, a sun and moon over a castle of three towers, a shield of arms above gateway below central tower, 1794 in exergue.
Edge: PAYABLE AT SHARPS PORTSMOUTH AND CHALDECOTTS CHICHESTER.
Diameter 29mm | Die Axis 12
Dalton & Hamer: 19

This token was probably manufactured by Peter Kempson in Birmingham and the dies were engraved by Thomas Wyon. Little is known about the issuers of the token, T. Chaldecott of Chichester and Thomas Sharp, seemingly a Mercer in Portsmouth in the 18th century.

This token was struck in the name of John Howard who was born in Lower Clapton, London the son of a wealthy upholsterer. After the death of his father in 1742, he received a sizeable inheritance. Since he was wealthy and had no true vocation, in 1748 Howard left England and began to travel. However, while in Hanover he was captured by French privateers and imprisoned. It was this experience that made him consider the conditions in which prisoners were held.
In 1758 Howard returned to England and settled in Cardington, Bedfordshire. As a landowner he was philanthropic and enlightened, ensuring that his estate housing was of good standard and that the poor houses under his management were well run.
In 1773 he became High Sheriff of Bedfordshire. On his appointment he began a tour of English prisons which led to two Acts of Parliament in 1774, making gaolers salaried officers and setting standards of cleanliness.
In April 1777, Howard's sister died leaving him £15,000 and her house. He used this inheritance and the revenue from the sale of her house to further his work on prisons. In 1778 he was examined by the House of Commons, who were this time inquiring into prison ships, or “hulks”. Two days after giving evidence, he was again travelling Europe, beginning in the Dutch Republic.
His final journey took him into Eastern Europe and Russia. Whilst at Kherson, in what is now Ukraine, Howard contracted typhus on a prison visit and died. He was buried on the shores of the Black Sea in a walled field at Dophinovka (Stepanovka), Ukraine. Despite requesting a quiet funeral without pomp and ceremony, the event was elaborate and attended by the Prince of Moldovia.
Howard became the first civilian to be honoured with a statue in St Paul's Cathedral, London. A statue was also erected in Bedford, and another one in Kherson. John Howard's bust can still be seen as a feature in the architecture of a number of Victorian prisons across the UK.

Alchred, or Alhred is a little known monarch of Northumbria. He was probably related, either directly or through marriage to King Eadberht, who was tonsured in 758. Alchred succeeded Aethelwald Moll, who took power after killing Eadberht's son Oswulf. According to the chronicle, he was deposed in 774 and succeeded by Aethelwald's son, Aethelred I.

Eadmund (or Edmund), later to be sainted and forever known as St. Edmund (of the Bury St. Edmund's fame) was the last independent king of East Anglia. He managed to keep order in his kingdom when the Viking "Great Heathen Army" landed an invasion force in 865, and made some sort of peace with them, providing a brief respite. The Vikings went north and attacked Northumbria, took York, set up a puppet government there, and then came south again. This time, the East Anglians resisted, but were crushed by the Viking army. Eadmund died, either in battle, or shortly after.

Some of the denarii struck in 88 are quite exceptional in style. Both obverse and reverse dies on this denarius are good examples of that fine style, certianly not "Friday afternoon" dies. Very idealised and bordering on fine art. The fabric and centering are also quite choice. Part of the large first issue of 88.

From Sears Imperator's:

"This issue would appear to be a revival of the type struck by Antony in the spring during the war around Mutina. After his Gallic adventures Antony, accompanied by his ally Lepidus, was now back in Cisalpine Gaul to meet with his former opponent Octavian. The conference between the three men at Bononia in early November, set the seal on the formation of the Second Triumvirate, an event commemorated by this issue. It clearly belongs to the period immediately following the agreement at Bononia as the form of the triumviral titulature (R P C) had not yet been expanded to the normal III VIR R P C. A distinctive feature of this coinage is the portrait of Antony which has a strangely elongated form, giving it something of the appearance of a caricature. Presumably, Antony's retinue at this time lacked the services of a die-engraver competent in the art of portraiture."

SealBox.JPG
Early Christian Seal Box7 viewsRoman Christian Seal Box, 2nd-3rd Century AD. Bronze, 5.33g, about 20mm maximum diameter and about 5mm thick. The figure has a halo (nimbate) and her(?) hands are raised in praise (orans pose). There are three attachment holes on the reverse. Found near the Balkans. A rare example of early Christian iconography and possibly unique for seal boxes.

The seal box was an extra-secure way of ensuring that the contents of a package were not compromised when sending important goods or information from one place to another.
