19th_century_photograph_of_the_Roman_Baths,_Bath_.jpg
ROMAN BATHS, BATH, ENGLAND.11 viewsThese celebrated Roman Baths were unknown until, in 1880, sewer workers uncovered the first glimpse of Roman structures under the Georgian Spa. This led to the discovery of the Roman Baths and their treasures.
The walls, columns and parapet that surround the Great Bath today were built in the Victorian period, and the "Roman" statues that gaze down upon the pool from the upper walkway are also Victorian.
The familiar green hue of the pool seen by modern visitors is caused by algae, resulting from the water's exposure to the open air. In Roman times the pool was roofed over and its waters, while perhaps not crystal clear, would certainly not have been green.
This photograph was taken in the 19th century not long after the Baths were discovered and before the Victorian structures we see today were built.

Rome mint, 95 AD

Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM P M TR P XIIII; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r.
Rev: IMP XXII COS XVII CENS P P P; Minerva stg. l., with spear (M4)
aVF/F

This denarius records Domitian's 17th consulship, dating it between January and September 95. The issue it is from is one which wholly consists of the four standard Minerva types with no deviations. The production levels at the Rome mint remained high in 95, possibly because of a third Pannonian war Domitian waged in 95-96.

It's a good example of the late portrait style featuring a supremely quaffed Domitian.

Roman_Coins_and_Their_Values.jpg
Roman Coins and Their Values, volume 1, Millennium Edition3 viewsRoman Coins and Their Values, the Republic and the Twelve Caesars 280 B.C. - 96 A.D., by David R. Sear, 2000, 532 pages and 1,200+ illustrations with with valuations in £ and $, Hardback

The Millennium Edition makes a radical departure from previous editions. The catalogue entries have been expanded to include a virtually complete listing of the entire Roman Republican series, a more comprehensive coverage of the much larger and more complex Imperial series, greater emphasis on the precise chronology and place of mintage of each type, and extensive coverage to the series of billon and bronze coins struck at Alexandria over a period of more than 300 years.

The valuations have been researched from recent auction records, fixed price catalogues, and many professional numismatists opinions on specific series. The number of photographic illustrations in the text has been increased and their quality improved, leading to a need to divide the work into a multi-volume format.

The Millennium Edition is of a much greater value both as a source of information and as a comprehensive work of reference for this vast and complex series.

The Roman Imperial Coinage, volume II, Part 1, Second Fully Revised Edition4 viewsRoman Imperial Coinage, from 69 A.D. to 96 A.D., Vespasian to Domitian, by I.A. Carradice and T.V. Buttrey, 2007, 404 pages and 160 pages of plates, Hardback

This reference book overs the coinage of the Flavian emperors: Vespasian, Titus, and Domitian.

This new edition expands upon the original RIC print and has been slated for a two part volume to cover material previously covered in one volume.

The book is easy to follow, especially with the indexes for legends and types. Furthermore, this book hosts a massive 160 pages of plates.

This is a must have for any collector of the Flavian dynasty.

Crawford 511/3a; CRI 334; Sydenham 1344; RSC 17 (Pompey the Great). Fine, lightly toned, bankers’ marks on obverse.

AMPHINOMUS and ANAPIS (or Anapias), two brothers, of Silicy, respecting whom it is related that they saved their parents, at the peril of their own lives, from the flames of Etna, at the moment when an eruption of that volcano threatened their immediate destruction. This was a favourite subject with the ancients, in symbolising filial piety; and is often represented on Greek coins of Catana (Catania), where this noble action is alleged to have been performed. Of these two Sicilian brothers, types of that devoted love, which is ever cherished by good children towards the earthly anthors of their being, Cornelius Severus, alluding to Mount Edna, thus expresses himself: "Amphinomus and his brother, both equally courageous in the performance of a duty, whilst the flames murmured their threats against the neighbouring houses, rescue their decrepid father, and their aged mother."

This portrait of George IV, used on all his later coinage, was designed by William Wyon (1795 - 1851).

The half-farthing was first issued in 1828, a year later than the third farthing, for use exclusively in Ceylon. However, it is usually considered to be part of the British coin series as Ceylon used British currency at that time.

Historical and Numismatic Note:

Pamphylia (/pæmˈfɪliə/) was the region in the south of Asia Minor, between Lycia and Cilicia, extending from the Mediterranean to Mount Taurus (modern-day Antalya province, Turkey).

Aspendos or Aspendus (Greek: Ἄσπενδος) was an ancient Greco-Roman city in Antalya province of Turkey. Aspendos is about 40 km east of Antalya, Turkey about 16 km inland on the Eurymedon River. In 546 B.C. it fell to Persia. After a Persian defeat in 467, the city joined the Attic-Delos Maritime League. Persia took it again in 411 B.C., Alexander in 333 B.C., and Rome in 190 B.C. Although often subject to powerful empires, the city usually retained substantial autonomy.

Reverse: PAYABLE IN BANK OF ENG.D OR HULL NOTES BY I.K.PICARD • around ONE PENNY / HULL / LEAD / WORKS in four lines with ornament below.
Edge: Grained.
Diameter 34mm | Die Axis 7
Davis: 82

The dies for this token were engraved by Thomas Halliday and it was manufactured by Edward Thomason.
The token was issued by John Kirby Picard, who had practised as an attorney-at-law in Trinity House-lane, become a barrister and been chosen as a Deputy-Recorder of Hull before he entered into the lead business of his father. He was a man of considerable wealth and frequently visited London on business and for pleasure. He mixed with the 'high' society of the period but became addicted to gambling. Picard used his tokens for the gambling parties he held in his house and after they gained the attention of the Prince Regent, the later George IV, he was invited to show them at court.
No mention of Picard has been found in any of the London Directories, but the 'London Gazette', on February 13th, 1827, announced that J. K. Pickard (sic), white lead merchant, Russell Street, Covent Garden, had been declared bankrupt. Picard died in reduced circumstances in 1843.

The legend “PAYABLE IN BANK OF ENGLAND NOTES” was placed on this token due to an Act of Parliament which was passed in 1809 requiring issuers of local tokens to meet claims for repayment in Bank of England notes. The government having seen the widespread use of private coinage in the form of tokens realised how much money was not being controlled by it, so by passing this act it effectively made these tokens into defacto currency.

There were several coins that were issued in the Indian colony of Tranquebar that had Danish towns on them. The towns were SKAGEN, STEGE, KØKE, and AAL BORG. There was a period of about 25 years when no ships came to the colony from Denmark. For that length of period, I suspect the colonists experienced homesickness and started issuing coins with town names on them.

Egyptian Faience Frog8 views2nd-1st Millenium BC, Egyptian Faience Frog. c. 11mm maximum diameter.

From Forvm's description of a similar piece:

The frog was a symbol of the Egyptian goddess of birth, Heget. Her priestesses were midwives and women often wore frog amulets during childbirth. Heget was said to have breathed life in to the new body of Horus and some of her amulets include the phrase, "I am the resurrection." Curiously, early Christians adopted the frog as a symbol of Christ's resurrection.

This is a rare issue from Ephesus with both an annulet and star. The meaning of the marks used in Ephesus remain a mystery. This reverse was contemporaneously used in Rome, but the Ephesus examples used an ornate, high-backed, chair, and Ceres is holding corn ears and poppy compared with a patera in the Rome example on a plain chair.

The janiform head may portray the legendary founder, Tenes, and his young step-mother and lover, Pheromone or, more likely, Tenes and his twin sister, Hemithea, who were worshiped on the island (please see Jochen's most excellent article "Coins of Mythological Interest" for the whole story). The double-headed axe may represent the local punishment for adultery, or maybe the 'axe of Tenes' meaning "resentment that can not be soothed" or "not having anything to do with somebody". In my coin, the beaded border is clearly broken - perhaps a sliced ship's mooring rope?

Arthur__s_O__on.jpg
Arthur's O'On, Scotland7 viewsThis was a Roman temple which, until the 18th century, stood on rising ground above the north bank of the River Carron at Stenhousemuir near Falkirk, Scotland.
The door is said to originally have had an iron gate and a huge stone once stood in the interior, possibly an altar or the base of a bronze statue.
When Edward I was destroying all important Scottish antiquities, he was only induced to spare the building itself after the local inhabitants had destroyed all the Roman sculptures and inscriptions which are said to have formerly ornamented its walls.
The building was demolished to line a mill dam on the River Carron by Sir Michael Bruce of Stenhouse in 1743. The stones were swept away in a flood the very next day.
The structure, most likely a temple, was unique in Britain and at the time of its destruction it was one of the best preserved Roman buildings in the country.
In the 1870's several members of the Society of Antiquaries tried to find the foundations of the building, but without success.

The old Praetorian Guard was disbanded by Septimius Severus after he seized Rome in 193 A.D., and was replaced by a new Guard of ten cohorts, each 1000-men strong, drawn from the Danubian legions which had supported his usurpation. It continued to be largely recruited from this source, with many Guardsmen being of Thracian origin, until it was finally disbanded by Constantine in 312 A.D.

Year 8 saw the last silver issue by Vespasian at Alexandria. This type with Titus Caesar on the reverse was the only tetradrachm type produced that year. By the time it was struck the style had become a bit more refined than those minted in year 1 or 2. Both portraits are in high Alexandrian style.

Diameter: 20mm
SPINK: 3959

Victoria's "bun head" portrait was designed by Leonard Charles Wyon (1826 - 1891), he was the eldest son of William Wyon, who had previously designed the "young head" portrait of the Queen. The letters L C WYON are incuse amongst the ornamentation of the Queen's dress.

On 1st April 1850 the auction was announced of equipment from the defunct Soho Mint, created by Matthew Boulton around 1788. At the auction, on 29th April, Ralph Heaton II bought Boulton's four steam-powered screw presses and six planchet presses for making blanks from strip metal. These were installed at Heaton's Bath Street works, and his Birmingham Mint began to strike trade tokens for use in Australia. In 1851 copper planchets were made for the Royal Mint to make into pennies, halfpennies, farthings, half-farthings and quarter-farthings.
In 1853 the Royal Mint was overwhelmed with producing silver and gold coins and so Ralph Heaton and Sons won their first contract to strike finished coins for Britain, these coins had no mintmark to identify them as from Birmingham.
In 1860 the firm bought a 1-acre plot on Icknield Street and constructed a three storey red brick factory. Completed in 1862 and employing 300 staff, it was at this time the largest private mint in the world.
From 1874 the Birmingham Mint began striking bronze pennies, halfpennies and farthings for the Royal Mint. This time though, the Birmingham Mint issues are distinguished by an H (for Heaton) mintmark below the date on the reverse. Victorian British coins bearing the H mintmark were produced in 1874, 1875, 1876, 1881 and 1882.

William IV's portrait was designed by William Wyon (1795 - 1851).

This coin was produced exclusively for use in Malta, but it is considered to be part of the British coinage as at that time Malta was considered more as a part of Britain than a colony. Because the cost of living was lower in Malta than in Britain it was not considered necessary to introduce the third-farthing coin into Britain itself.

This portrait of George IV, used on all his later coinage, was designed by William Wyon (1795 - 1851).
With the issues of George IV, Britannia now appears on pennies, halfpennies and farthings and fractions facing right instead of left, she would remain that way until 1967. She also acquires a helmet, recalling Roma and, before that, Athena.

This coin was produced in 1827 exclusively for use in Malta, but it is considered to be part of the British coinage as at that time Malta was considered more as a part of Britain than a colony. The grano, a coin dating from before British rule, was valued at a twelfth of a penny so the decision was made to coin the equivalent in a British denomination. Because the cost of living was lower in Malta than in Britain it was not considered necessary to introduce the third-farthing coin into Britain itself.

(Netherlands, 2001)

In the absence of any specific reverse legend, it is difficult to know for sure which temple is depicted on this coin. According to Clive Foss (1990) it is the temple of Venus Genetrix of the Forum of Julius Caesar. Since the statue in the centre of the building appears to be that of Jupiter, most assume that it is the temple of Jupiter Victor. In that case, this issue could celebrate the restoration of that temple by Trajan which event was celebrated in conjunction with the tenth anniversary of his reign. Later this temple was rededicated to Divus Traianus, and later still by Elegabalus to Sol-Elagabal. Strack however carefully studied all evidence and examined the best preserved specimens of this and related issues and concludes that the best guess is that the central figure represents the Genius Augusti and that the temple is dedicated to Divus Nerva.

The obverse legend using Antoninus full name: IMP CAES T AEL HADR ANTONINVS PIVS', only found in this form in the period (AD 151-152), reminds of the earliest title of Antoninus Pius: 'IMP T AEL CAES HADR ANTONINVS AVG PIVS', used during the very beginning of his reign in AD 139 soon after divinsation of his adoptive father Hadrian.

Curia_Iulia_front.jpg
Italy, Rome, Curia Iulia, Forum Romanum13 viewsCuria Julia (Latin: Curia Iulia, Italian: Curia Iulia) is the third named Curia, or Senate House, in the ancient city of Rome. It was built in 44 BC when Julius Caesar replaced Faustus Cornelius Sulla’s reconstructed Curia Cornelia, which itself had replaced the Curia Hostilia. Caesar did this in order to redesign both spaces within the Comitium and Forum Romanum. The alterations within the Comitium reduced the prominence of the senate and cleared the original space. The work, however, was interrupted by Caesar's assassination at the Theatre of Pompey where the Senate had been meeting temporarily while the work was completed. The project was eventually finished by Caesar’s successor Augustus in 29 BC. The Curia Julia is one of only a handful of Roman structures to survive to the modern day mostly intact, due to its conversion into the basilica of Sant'Adriano al Foro in the 7th century and several later restorations. However the roof, together with the upper elevations of the side walls and rear façade, are modern. These parts date from the remodeling of the deconsecrated church in the 1930s.Joe SermariniSep 12, 2014
Domus_Flavia_and_Circo_Massimo.jpg
Italy, Rome, Flavian Palace - Domus Flavia (and Circo Massimo)9 viewsThe Flavian Palace, also known as Domus Flavia, is a part of the vast residential complex of the Roman Emperors on the Palatine Hill in Rome. It was completed in 92 AD in the reign of Titus Flavius Domitianus, more commonly known as the Emperor Domitian, and attributed to his master architect, Rabirius. Well known for its grandeur, the Flavian Palace was more commonly used for purposes of state, while the Domus Augustana, an enormous, lavishly ornamented palace south of the Flavian Palace, was the Emperor’s primary residence.
