Copador3.jpg
Southern Maya polychrome painted bowl5 viewsSouthern Maya polychrome painted bowl (Copador*), El Salvador, classic period (AD 250-900).
The outside of the bowl is decorated with a row of ten right seated figures making offerings. These figures may represent one of the Maya hero twins (Hunahpú) which, in the classic period, was believed to be reborne as the Maize God.

The inside of the bowl has in the center a pattern of two double-crossing angled bands within a circle (the earth?) with, outside the circle, seven left standing bird-like animals carrying double-bodied fruits in their beaks.

Height: 10cm; Diameter: 23cm

Photo upper left: condition of the bowl as it was found;
Middel left: repaired bowl viewed from outer side;
Right: Inside view of the bowl;
Below: Rollout photo of the outer side.

(*) The term "Copador" is a contraction of Copán (Honduras) and El Salvador, because ceramics of this same style are found in these regions dating from the classic period.

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

Interesting example because of the ancient graffiti on Christ, also the OC of the obverse gives the impression Christ is seated, he is not.

Juba II was the only son and heir of his father King Juba I. King Juba I was the King of Numidia and ally to Pompey the Great. He fought against Julius Caesar at the battle of Thapsus and lost commiting suicide soon after. His son Juba II was taken away to Rome to be paraded in Caesar's Triumph's. He was then raised in Caesar's houshold and educated in both Latin and Greek excelling in his studies. He was praised as one of Rome's most educated citizens and at age 20 even published a work entitled Roman Archaeology. He became life long friends with Julius Caesar's heir Octavian. He accompanied Octavian on several campaigns during the turbulent times after Caesar's death even fighting at the battle of Actium against his future wifes parents...Antony and Cleopatra VII.

Augustus restored Juba II as the king of Numidia between 29 BC-27 BC and Numidia become one of the most loyal client kings that served Rome. Between 26 BC-20 BC, Augustus arranged for him to marry Cleopatra Selene II (Daughter of Antony and Cleopatra) giving her a large dowry and appointing her queen. She also had been paraded in a Triumph in Rome after the battle of Actium. It was probably due to his services with Augustus in a campaign in Spain that led Augustus to make him King of Mauretania.

Cleopatra is said to have exerted considerable influence on Juba II's policies. Juba II encouraged and supported the performing arts, research of the sciences and research of natural history. Juba II also supported Mauretanian trade. Mauretania traded all over the Mediterranean and exported fish grapes, pearls, figs, grain, wooden furniture and purple dye harvested from certain shellfish, which was used in the manufacture of purple stripes for senatorial robes. Juba II sent a contingent to Iles Purpuraires to re-establish the ancient Phoenician dye manufacturing process.

Cleopatra Selene seems to have inherited the same qualities of both Antony and Cleopatra VII. She was strong willed and maintained her Egyptian/Greek heritage. She seems intent on continuing the Ptolomaic line of strong women rulers using the same titles as her mother. She died sometime before Juba II. The Greek Historian Plutarch describes Juba II as 'one of the most gifted rulers of his time'. Between 2 BC-2, he travelled with Gaius Caesar as a member of his advisory staff to the troubled Eastern Mediterranean. In 21, Juba II made his son Ptolemy co-ruler. Juba II died in 23 AD. He had two children by Cleopatra Selene, Ptolomy of Mauretania (1 BC- 40 AD) and Drusilla of Mauretania (born in 5 AD). He was burried in the Mausolium he constructed for himself and his wife which is still visible today. A partial inscription attributed to her reads:

The moon herself grew dark, rising at sunset,
Covering her suffering in the night,
Because she saw her beautiful namesake, Selene,
Breathless, descending to Hades,
With her she had had the beauty of her light in common,
And mingled her own darkness with her death

Antonia was the younger daughter of Mark Antony and Octavia and was born on January 31st 36B.C. She was married at age 20 to Tiberius' younger brother Nero Claudius Drusus and had two sons, the great Germanicus and the future emperor Claudius. She was widowed in 9 BC and refused to marry again and devoted her life to her families interests. Her wealth and status made her very influencial during Tiberius' reign and it was she who brought about the downfall of Sejanus.

On the accession of her grandson Caligula in 37 AD she received many honours but died later that year at the age of 73. She did not receive postumous honours until the reign of her son Claudius in 41 AD and all of the coinage in Antonia's name was issued by Claudius.

Domitian's imperial acclamations were piling up fairly rapidly in 86 due to ongoing battles being fought along the Danube. This denarius from the second issue of 86 records his 12th imperial acclamation. Many of the denarii of 86 are rendered in fine style and are quite scarce, this coin being a delightful example of such.

A stunning portrait on a large flan (21mm!). Aurei and denarii often shared dies in this issue, I can't help but think the dies which struck this coin were meant for both.

In 279 B.C., Pyrrhus' forces, supporting the Greek cities of southern Italy, met and defeated the Romans at the battle of Asculum in Apulia. Pyrrhus, however, lost many men, several close associates, and all of his baggage. When one of his soldiers congratulated him on his victory, he famously replied: "Another such victory and we are ruined!" From this we have the term Pyrric victory, a victory achieved at ruinous cost.

Mayan cylinder13 viewsMayan Pottery Polychrome Dynastic Cylinder, Late Classic Ca. 600 - 900 A.D. Two elite figures wearing headband and feathered cloak holding staff with obsidian celt attached. The glyphs inscribed under the rim are a variant of Michael Coe's Primary Standard Sequence (PSS) which speaks of and, perhaps, names the artist who painted the vessel and its contents.

Height: 18 cm; diameter: 12 cm; circumference: 41.2 cm.

Little is known about Theodora. She was the daughter or step-daughter of Maximianus and married Constantius I c.A.D.292. Theodora and Constantius had six children whose names were Flavius Dalmatius, Julius Constantius, Hannibalianus, Constantia, Anastasia and Eutropia. This coin was struck after her death, as were all her coins, under Constantine II, Constantius II and Constans, the sons of Constantine I.

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. Metropolitan issues are in general far scarcer than the Thessalonica issues.

Classical Numismatic Group.

The Lydian capital of Sardis surrendered to Alexander the Great in 334 BC. In 330 BC a royal mint was established at Sardis. From ca. 325 BC silver drachms dominated the output of the mint and adjacent mints in Asia Minor. This drachm output circulated throughout the Macedonian empire. Morkholm (1991) attributed concentration of drachm production in the mints of Asia Minor to be the result of a deliberate division of labour, the government reserving the main production of silver drachms for these special mints, while other imperial mints concentrated on the production of tetradrachms. From 325 until 318 BC Sardis remained the most productive of the Alexandrine drachm mints.

Spink & Son Ltd, December 1987.

After the Battle of Ipsos in 301 BC, Ephesos and Miletos were the only major centres in Asia Minor to remain loyal to Demetrios Poliorketes, the son and successor of Antigonos Monopthalmos. In 294 BC, Demetrios secured the Macedonian throne, ruling most of Greece for a period of six years. In 286 BC he invaded Asia Minor, only to be abandoned by his army, at which point he surrendered to his son-in-law Seleukos I Nikator. He died a few years later in 283 BC, held in captivity at Apamea on the Axios by his son-in-law Seleukos.

PATTERN - RARE

This portrait of Charles II was designed by Jan (John) Roettier (1631 - 1700).
The copper coinage of King Charles II, beginning in 1672, was the first modern coinage to show Britannia. The representation was adapted from a figure of Britannia on a sestertius of the Roman emperor Antoninus Pius, who reigned from A.D.138 to 161.
Frances Teresa Stewart, who became Duchess of Richmond, is reputed to have been the model for this figure. Charles II was infatuated with her despite her refusal to be his mistress.
The legend, "Quatuor Maria Vindico," means "I claim the four seas," which Peck explains was "intended to give prominence to the king's pride and interest in the navy." However, the reason this type never appeared as circulating coinage was probably because the legend was thought to be far too provocative to the King of France. Nevertheless it is quite plain that almost all extant copper examples show signs of having circulated.
The value of the silver used in this pattern would have been equivalent to one shilling and sixpence at the time.

She married Marcus Aurelius in A.D.145 and was given the title of Augusta on the birth of her first child in A.D.146. She went on to have several more children, one of whom was the future emperor Commodus. In A.D.175 Faustina accompanied Marcus Aurelius on his journey to the East but she died at Halala, a village at the foot of the Taurus Mountains.

Metropolitan Issue were minted in Constantinople, each of these coins had an added silver content of around 1% 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.

RIC I, 97 (R); Cohen 55 (40 Francs).

Lucius Vitellius the elder, the father of the emperor of the same name, had an impressive career under Tiberius, Caligula and Claudius. He achieved the highest honors attainable by a private man at Rome under the Empire: consul for the third time and censor. He held these offices during the reign of Claudius, when he had been a close friend of the emperor and the most influential Roman senator.

Vitellius died unexpectedly from a paralytic stroke in 51 and received a statue on the speaker's platform on the Roman Forum, with the inscription 'Of unwavering loyalty to the emperor'.

The year 36 saw an incident which deserves mentioning. In Judaea, a Samaritan, claiming to be Moses reincarnate, gathered an armed following. The prefect of Judaea, Pontius Pilate, intervened immediately, dispersed the crowd, and had the ringleaders executed. The Samaritans considered his violence excessive and appealed to the Syrian governor. Vitellius heard their complaints, sent Pilate back to Italy and appointed Marcellus. Pilate's co-ruler in Judaea, the high priest Joseph Joseph Caiaphas, was replaced by his brother-in-law Jonathan.

Following the victory of Philip’s entry in the Olympic Games of 356 BC, the youth (jockey) with palm branch reverse of this coin type was introduced in celebration of his Olympic win. This became a standard throughout and beyond his reign. It continued to be struck into the early years of the reign of Alexander the Great and later by his successors in Macedonia, into the first years the third century BC. The emission with the Λ above torch mint control was struck during the latter part of the reign of Kassander in parallel with a large emission of Alexander tetradrachms bearing the same mint control. This coinage may have been struck to pay Thraco-Macedonian mercenaries in the service of the Kassander.

The depiction of the hoplite in a defensive posture on the reverse of this coin is most evocative of its time, notwithstanding the miserable corroded state of the coin itself, which is a type of some rarity. The initial reaction to the typology of this coin might be one of surprise at the apparently incongruous pairing of the image of a Persian dynast on horseback on the obverse with that of a Greek hoplite on the reverse. The explanation is to be found in the written historical record. The coin dates to the period of Xenophon's anabasis. Xenophon refers to the role of Syennesis (III) and his wife Epyaxa in the revolt of Cyrus the Younger, in whose employ as a mercenary Xenophon found himself. In view of the historical record left by Xenophon, the pairing of the motifs of a Persian dynast, or tributary king, on one side of this coin with a Greek hoplite on the other now seems particularly poignant, rather than incongruous. During the fifth and fourth centuries BC, the Persian dynasts routinely employed Greek hoplite mercenaries in their armies, so that the reverse typology may simply be a reflection of this reality on coinage destined perhaps for mercenary pay.

All the hereditary kings of Cilicia were termed Syennesis, a royal title more than an actual name. As described in Xenophon’s Anabasis, Syennesis (III) under the influence of his wife and queen, Epyaxa, supported the unsuccessful revolt of Cyrus the Younger against his brother Artaxerxes II in 401 BC. As much as anything this action appears to have been motivated by the desire to prevent Cryrus’ army pillaging and looting during its passage through Cilicia. Syennesis’ support included a body of troops commanded by one of his sons. However, he sent another son, accompanied by a report on Cyrus plans and army to Artaxerxes, so that whatever the outcome he might be aligned with the winning side. Syennesis' actions, however, did little to save Cilicia's autonomy. After 400 BC it became an ordinary satrapy of the Persian Empire, rather than an independent tributary or vassal state, and the role of the hereditary king of Cilicia ceased, replaced by a satrap who was appointed by the Persian king, most frequently a relative of the latter.

The actual name of the Kushan king called by the epithet "Soter Megas"("Great Savior") on his coins was unknown until the 1993 discovery of an inscription at Rabatak in Afghanistan, written by the Kushan king Kanishka. The Rabatak inscription lists the lineage of Kushan kings who had ruled up to that time: his great-grandfather Kujula Kadphises; his grandfather, Vima Taktu, his father, Vima Kadphises; and himself, Kanishka. Mention is seemingly also made of Vima Taktu in the Chinese chronicle Hou Hanshu, in relation to his father, Kujula Kadphises:

“Qiujiuque [Kujula Kadphises] was more than eighty years old when he died. His son, Yangaozhen [apparently Vima Taktu] became king in his place. He defeated Tianzhu [northwestern India] and installed generals to supervise and lead it. The Yuezhi then became extremely rich. All the kingdoms call [their king] the Guishuang[Kushan] king, but the Han call them by their original name, Da Yuezhi”.

Sequential (annual?) issues have been defined in the literature by counting the number of rays around the king's head, more rays being earlier and fewer rays being later.

The more realistic style of both obverse and reverse of this coin, the penultimate type of Waggoner's Issue I, sets it apart from the preceding "Persian" engraved issues and was the basis from which the characteristic Babylon style of the subsequent high volume issues of the Babylon mint evolved.

The image of Zeus Ithomatas is a recurring theme on the civic coinage of Messene; a symbol of the Messenian belief that after four centuries of bondage to their Spartan neighbours that they had the support and assistance of the Zeus to maintain their independence and freedom.

Gorny & Mosch.

This coin is from the first emission (Newell Tarsos 1) of Alexander tetradrachms from Tarsos, which is now understood to have been the mint from which Alexander the Great produced the first coins of what were to become his distinctive standard type. It comes from the third obverse die made for the type and dates to 333 BC, either immediately before or after the Battle of Issos, there being no certainty on this point. It is amongst the first Alexander tetradrachms to be struck.

Hess-Divo Auction 320, 26 October 2011, 112.

This is the only known example of a Babylon mint Alexander on which Zeus is portrayed with an open facing palm, on which rests his eagle. All other examples exhibit the upward facing hand style (refer accompanying examples in the gallery). In addition to Price 3579, the obverse die used to strike this coin was used to strike examples of Price 3578 and 3581, consistent with it being the first obverse die of the “Greek” style (Waggoner p. 125) which was put into use at Babylon around the same time as the change in the style of portrayal of the left hand of Zeus occurred throughout the east.

Babylon Royal Mint 330-328 BC.

(24 mm, 17.24 g, 12h).

This is amongst the first of Alexander’s coinage struck at Babylon. The rather heavily stylized portrayal of Herakles accompanied by the rigid squared-off portrayal of Zeus distinguish the earliest coinage of Babylon, derived from six obverse dies, from the subsequent emissions of Waggoner’s Issue I. Waggoner attributed this unusually simplified and rigid style to the presence of Persian engravers at the inception of mint who were strongly influenced by the initial Tarsos style Alexander issues. She suggested that these Perisan engravers were later replaced by Greek engravers responsible for the more realistic portrayals of the last four dies of Issue I. These in turn evolved into the characteristic Babylon style of the following Issue II. The laurel sprig is the only one of six symbols on Issue I that does not re-appear on subsequent Babylon emissions.

The early pulvinar denarii struck by Domitian tell the story of an emperor who was awarded titles in stages. The "PONT" series were minted before Domitian obtained the full title Pontifex Maximus, presumably until the proper religious rites were completed. Most "PONT" denarii are listed as R2 or R3. Interestingly, this Group 4 denarius shares the same obverse die as my very rare Group 3 RIC 34 with the same reverse type but with a different legend, proof that the two groups were struck simultaneously. At this time the mint was divided up into different officinae based on reverse types. No obverses die matches are found with different reverse types.

A great early style portrait and finely toned.

The figure on the reverse is not the satyr Marsyas, who does have his mythological orgins in Phrygia, but rather the personification of the river Marsyas, which flows from a spring in the heights above Apamea and eventually joins the Maeander. Apamea was known as Kelaenai before being re-founded by Antiochos I, and had the additional epithet of Kibotos, or "chest," for its importance as a regional trading center.

“Owing to inner strife and disordered general conditions, the coins [of this period] were usually minted with extremely low precious metal content; moreover, poor mintages were often struck with negligently engraved dies. As a result of the hurried, superficial minting, it was sometimes doubtful whether a faulty coin had been issued officially, or was a forgery” (Huszár 1963).

Tenedos was an island town a few kilometres off the coast of the Troas, south of Ilion (the legendary Troy). It was the place where the Greeks hid their fleet near the end of the Trojan War, so as to trick the Trojans into believing that they had left, emboldening the latter to take the Trojan horse inside the city walls of Troy. It was an island city of strategic significance due to its proximity to the southern entrance of the Dardanelles. The best of the female/male janiform heads of this coin type are a masterpiece of late Classical Greek numismatic art.

Gallienus - Gazelle XII Right4 viewsObverse:- GALLIENVSAVG, Head right with radiate crown ?
Reverse:- DIANAECONSAVG, Gazelle Right
Exergue:- XII (off flan)
RIC ??? GOBL ???? CUNETIO ????

I've listed this one as a Gazelle from the XII officina. The legs are wrong according to the Cunetio for the Gazelle XI types, and the shape of the horns seem more in keeping with the Gazelle XII rather than the Antelope Greek_Gamma type. The right facing Gazelle XII types also seem to be more common than the right facing Antelope types.

The bust seems to be the type listed in Göbl as "Paludamentum über Cüraß" (I'm not sure how best to translate this into english) this is abbreviated as PCh in the tables. In table 20 which is where the animal series for Rome can be found, there is only listed a PCh2 bust type, the 2 digit relating to the ties/ribbons which would be hanging freely. This coin however seems to me to have one tie draped over the shoulder like the standard right facing busts. This would make the bust type a PCh1 of which there are few examples in Göbl (for example table 7 38r) but none recorded in table 20 for the animal series.

Reverse:- DIANAECO[N]SAVG, Gazelle left
Exergue:- XII
RIC 181 GOBL 750b CUNETIO 1408

At first glance this coin seems to have an XI in the exergue, however according to the Cunetio one of the subtle differences between the coins of the XI & XII officina are the rear legs, those from XI are seen from behind, whilst those from XII are not. On closer inspection and only in right light you can just make out a raised area which corresponds to the missing I (see small picture in the middle). Whether this was done deliberately or not is not for me to make judgements but it does at least keep the coin in line with the Cunetio statement about the rear legs. The only other coin I came across which maybe refute the Cunetio statement can be found in the coin project (http://www.coinproject.com/coin_detail.php?coin=218931)
