Note:
Comments: Commemorates the Secular Games of .D. 88. The Secular Games, Ludi Saeculares, were religious ceremonies that took place in Rome every 100 or 110 years; they had a mythological origin but were actually held in 249 and 140 BC, after which they fell into abeyance until Augustus revived them in 17 BC. They involved sacrifices to a number of different gods and goddesses, after which there were theatrical performances and some athletic events.
Domitians celebrations were commemorated on an extensive series of coins in all metals, with those in orichalcum and copper being the most elaborate. The legend LVDi SAECulares FECit is used throughout, and conveys the emperor as bringing the celebration of the games to the city. In the present example we see Domitian sacrificing in the presence of the Tiber, with two attendants adding a musical accompaniment.

ex G. Henzen (Netherlands, 2000)

The reverse of this sestertius commemorates the completion in AD 103 of a major restoration of the Circus Maximus, following a great fire that had severely damaged the famous arena in the time of the Flavian emperors. The origin of the Circus Maximus, situated in the Murcia valley between the Palatine and Aventine hills, is quite obscure. An enclosure for chariot racing, it had parallel sides and one semicircular end, all fitted with seats for spectators, and an axial rib (spina) marked at each end by turning-posts (metae) dividing the arena into two runs. At the open end were the curved stables (carceres) sufficient to accommodate twelve teams of horses. Traditionally founded by King Tarquinius Priscus, it does not seem to have become a permanent structure until 329 BC (Livy viii. 20.1). In later times, it was much embellished, notably by Augustus who erected on the spina the great Egyptian obelisk of Rameses II from Heliopolis (it now stands in the Piazza del Populo). The vast arena was frequently damaged by the fires that afflicted the imperial capital; on several occasions, there was loss of life when structural failure occurred under the weight of the huge crowds that attended the events. Trajan was himself an ardent fan of the Circus so it is scarcely surprising that he took on the task of restoring the arena. The present specimen is a good example of the rare issue that commemorated the completion of this undertaking. More than a century later (AD 213), the Emperor Caracalla issued a similar type to record his own restoration work on the Circus Maximus. The last recorded games in this celebrated arena took place under the Ostrogothic king Totila in AD 550.

A very rare RPC Group 1 tetradrachm from Antioch. The style is "Alexandrian". It's highly probable the coin was engraved and struck at Alexandria and then sent to Syria for circulation. Kevin Butcher speculates these "Alexandrian" styled tets were sent to southern Syria to fulfil coin orders the cities in that region may have placed with the mint at Alexandria.

Unusually for a Group 1 tetradrachm, the portrait is without aegis and resembles Titus more than Vespasian.

Note: Gustavus Lindenmueller was a colorful New York tavern owner. In 1863, in order to advertise his business, the barkeep had more than one million tokens struck and placed into circulation. They were commonly used for streetcar fare. Eventually, the Third Avenue Railroad company, which had been accepting the tokens in lieu of actual currency, asked Lindenmueller to redeem them. He refused, and left the railroad company with no legal recourse. Incidents such as these eventually forced government intervention.

Good very fine. shows Trajan, after his initially successful campaigns in the east, assigning kingdoms to three eastern client rulers. His lack of the title Parthicus within the obverse legend, indicates that this coin must have been struck in c. 115/116, before it was awarded (the somewhat more common issues of Trajan with this reverse type include that title). The heavily bearded figures of the kings of the reverse are meant to be Armenians and Parthians, but they are surprisingly reminiscent of Dacians as well! beter in de hand

Probus Stlyes Montage192 viewsmaridvnvm posted this on the discussion board July 17, 2006:

One of my specialist areas is Probus and I thought I would share a little montage that I have put together. We must remember that stylistic changes occur within a mint over the time of a single emperor as well as between mints and it is often necessary to become as familiar as we can with these style differences to be able to determine the correct mint placement for some coins.

Here are some Bust Type Cs (Radiate, draped and cuirassed bust right (seen from the rear)) for arrange of mints under Probus including some examples from different periods of output from these mints where I have examples to show. I hope it is evident that there are marked differences to be seen between the mints but also within a single mint just for this short period of production. I have taken a random sample of coins and there are different styles notable between dies from the same period but they are all generally evident that they come from a particular mint at a particular period.

The output of Antioch and Tripolis are notably more crude and eccentric than the output of the other mints,

Similar stylistic differences can be seen for the other

Regards,
Martin

There are many stories in Greek mythology regarding the goddess Athena; Her involvement in the War of the Giants, the contest with Poseidon to determine the patron of Athens, Her weaving contest with Arachne, the Judgment of Paris, and the blinding of Teiresias for viewing Her while bathing are among the most commonly known.
But it is Her assistance to Herakles during his Twelve Labors which concerns us here, the first of which, the slaying of the Nemean lion, is depicted on the reverse of this coin.

Hercules of the Forum Boarium9 viewsHercules of the Forum Boarium is a gilded 2nd century B.C. slightly over-lifesize bronze statue, which was found in the Forum Boarium in Rome. This statue is probably the one mentioned by Pliny, which originally stood in the Temple of Hercules Victor, by the Tiber. It lacks the lion skin. Perhaps a actual lion skin was once draped on it. The sculpture is now in the Musei Capitolini, Rome.1 commentsJoe SermariniJul 23, 2015

The figure supports himself lightly on his grounded vertical club; the skin of the Nemean Lion is draped over his left forearm, he holds the apples of Hesperides in his left hand.

The Parthians were successors to the Persian Empire of the Achaemenids. They achieved this by defeating Seleucus, one of Alexander's successor generals. Their empire continued until early in the third century AD after which they were supplanted by the Sassanids. They were constantly battling the Romans, usually over the province of Armenia,

Pub. Plautius was curule aedile with him in B.C. 58.

The moneyer was a supporter of Cicero, the obverse concordia being represenation of the 'concordia ordinum', central to Ciceros politics in 63 (according to Crawford; Grber gives a different interpretation, assumedly as he puts the coin into 71 b.c.) .

The reservse remembering the (assumed?) ancestor hailed 'imperator' three times.

Obverse: Helmeted and draped bust of Virtus right "VIRTVS" before and "III VIR" behind.
Reverse: Warrior, (Mn. Aquillius, consul in 101 BC) standing facing, looking right, holding shield, raising figure of Sicilia who is slumped to the left, "MN. AQVIL." on right and "MN. F. MN. N." on left (both MN in monogram). In ex. "SICIL."

Mn. Aquillius (the moneyer's grandfather) was consul in 101 B.C. and sent as proconsul to end the second slave war in Sicily. The slaves were under the control of Athenion, a Cilician, one of their commanders, who had already defeated L. Licinius Lucullus. Aquillius succeeded the next year in defeating Athenion and this coin type commemorates his valour (Virtus). The coin was minted during the famous slave war led by Spartacus, when Rome was trembling, which may or may not be a coincidence.

Mn. Aquillius was not so lucky after the defeat of the slaves. In 88 B.C. he went to Asia as one of the consular legates in the Mithridactic war; he was defeated and handed over by the inhabitants of Mytilene to Mithridates, who put him to death by pouring molten gold down his throat.

Antioch mint, 69-70 AD

Obv : AYTOKPAT KAIΣA OYEΣΠAΣIANOY; Head of Vespasian, laureate, r., with aegis
Rev : ETOYΣ NEOY IEPOY B; Eagle standing r., on thunderbolt; in r. field, palm branch
aVF

This RPC Group 1 tetradrachm was struck very early in Vespasian's reign. He is seen here wearing an aegis, similar in appearance and style to those struck for Nero. The first tetradrachms at Antioch depicting Vespasian with an aegis were struck for regnal year one (July - September 69), this year two coin (October 69 - September 70) was likely minted very soon afterward, perhaps Autumn of 69. The style is 'Alexandrian', indicating either the coin was struck at the Alexandria mint and then sent to Syria or, at the very least, the die was engraved there. Interestingly the aegis depicted on the portrait is a cloak (goat skin?) decorated with a snake on the shoulder, much more elaborate than the aegises engraved at Rome.

A fantastic early and rare portrait of the new emperor.

The front of the temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus standing on the Capitole.

The temple was originally build during the time of the Kings; reportedly decided by Numa Pompilus himself, finished only in the founding year of the Republic under Marcus Horatius Pulvillus, on September 13, 509 BC
Destroyed in 83 bc and not yet rubuilt when this coin was minted.
Also this temple front (or rather the front of the newly rebuild one) can be found on coins of Petillius Capitolinus in 43 BC

Size 17mm

Weight 2.18 gm

Cosmopolitan Issue 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 lists 27 examples with weights from 2,79gm to 4.69gm and sizes ranging from 18mm to 22mm

This coin even in a very nice example is half the weight of the normal examples, this is very unusual for a Constantinople minted coin, I added this to be collection as an oddity perhaps a half Tetarteron.

The reverse ends legend with "AUG V". The 'V' stands for the number of times donatives had been given at the time of the minting. "Liberalitas" signifies generosity.

Trinitite2 viewsTrinitite, also known as atomsite or Alamogordo glass, is the glassy residue left on the desert floor after the plutonium-based Trinity nuclear bomb test on July 16, 1945, near Alamogordo, New Mexico. The glass is primarily composed of arkosic sand composed of quartz grains and feldspar (both microcline and smaller amount of plagioclase with small amount of calcite, hornblende and augite in a matrix of sandy clay)[2] that was melted by the atomic blast. It is usually a light green, although color can vary. It is mildly radioactive but safe to handleRandygeki(h2)Jul 12, 2015

SCARCE

The bronze coins of Antoninus Pius struck c.A.D.154 - 155 and bearing the "Britannia" reverse type have been found in considerable quantities in Britain, but are not generally recorded from Roman sites in France and Germany. The old theory that the "Britannia" issues of Antoninus Pius were minted in Britain is therefore not improbable, though it is possible that the issue was both issued at Rome and produced locally in Britannia. The many "Britannia" issues of Antoninus Pius found in Coventina's Well, Carrawburgh, seem to have come from only a few dies, suggesting that the place of mintage was not far distant.
Since the coins proposed to have been struck in Britannia are typically smaller, lighter, and somewhat inferior to those issued from Rome this coin, due to it's somewhat irregular flan and light weight would probably be considered to be a product of a mint in Britannia.

Bearing that in mind, this coin, because of it's excellent style, size and weight, would probably be attributed to a Roman mint or at least to dies produced there.

The avers ist showing a bust with the combined attributes of Apollo (Hair, Laurel), Minerva (Helmet), Diana (Bow) Victory (winged) and Fortuna (Cornucopia).
According to M Harlan the whole coin can also be read as a reference to Fortuna Primigenia as seen in her temple on the Quirinal.

For the moneyer Crawford refers to Cicero (ad Att v,20, 8); Mommsen names him as the prosecutor of Fonteius, also refering to Cicero (pro Font.)

This second home merged with the Montreal Hebrew Orphans Home in 1936, and relocated to the former Herve Institute building on Claremont Avenue. In 1942 the orphanage was forced to close due to lack of funding and the rise of foster care in Quebec.

Cuthgils (or Cudcils?) is a rare moneyer for Aethelred I. He also coined for Aelfwald II. His coins, of crude design compared with others of Aethelred's second reign, suggest these coins might be an earlier issue, but since there is no hoard evidence there is no way to know. Cuthgils' coins depict a triangular design with a cross above. This has been called a "shrine" or "church roof" though the simplicity of the design prevents further interpretation. It has been suggested that this was an ecclesiastic issue, though there is no specific indication of this.

Lord Grantley believed the reverse of the coin was a tribute to St. Cuthberht, and misinterpreted the reverse as stating "SCT CVD" There were only 2-3 known at the time, and the discovery of more specimens with clearer legends showed that the legend is clearly "CVD CLS". The final nail that put he matter to rest was the discovery of coins of Aelfwald (II?) by the same moneyer Cuthgils. These are extremely rare and do not depict a 'shrine' or other fancy design.

Whether the shrine design on otherwise featureless coins had any specific meaning, such as being struck under the auspices of a clergyman, has been lost to history. Presumably the idea for the shrine image itself was copied from contemporary Merovingian or early Carolingian coins.

The Yorkshire museum does have a Cuthgils sceat (Pirie 22) but it is from different dies. I have not been able to trace an obverse die match, but the reverse matches coin 46 on Patrick Finn's Memorial List 'A' (in "Studies in Early Medieval Coinage vol 1", T. Abramson ed). The reverse is distinct and recognizable by the presence of most of the letters in the legend being recut on the die. While this issue is not as rare as it was 100 years ago when Grantley wrote about it, it still remains quite rare. There are only 5 listed in the EMC and a handful of others in private collections.
