Mint: Rome, 190-191 A.D.

41mm 69.62g

Gnecchi pl. 78, 4; MIR 18, 1149-1/37; cf. Banti 31/32 (for obv./rev.); Froehner p. 137 var. (bust type); Cohen 70 var.

Ex Triton III (1 December 1999), lot 1106.

The scene on the reverse was previously used as a medallic type under Antoninus Pius (Gnecchi pl. 50, 6). A circa 2nd century AD bronze phalera discovered in 1732 on the Palatine Hill (LIMC [Tellus], no. 39 = Tocci pl. LXVIII, D) also features a near identical scene, but includes the inscription “INVENTORI LVCIS SOLI INVICTO AVGVSTO” in two lines (this is among the earliest known references to Sol Invictus). The association between the “invincible” sun and the emperor would frequently be stressed throughout the 3rd century AD, but this medallion and the above mentioned pieces demonstrate that such an assimilation was being explored during the 2nd century AD. Here we see the sun god beginning his daily journey, ascending into the heavens with the guidance of Lucifer, son of Eos (dawn). It stresses Sol’s role in the cycle of life, death, and rebirth, and the dependence of earth on the sun’s life-giving powers. Naturally, an emperor would desire to be associated with a deity who was so essential to the functioning of the universe. As medallions such as this were often presented during New Year’s celebrations, it was perhaps intended to underscore the welfare that the emperor would bring to the earth in the coming year (Toynbee p. 93).
Lucifer (“light-bringer”), the equivalent of the Greek Phosphoros, was the personification of the planet Venus as the morning star. In the book of Isaiah (14:12), the prophet refers to the King of Babylon as a “shining one, son of the morning,” who has fallen from heaven (an obvious parallel to Satan’s fall from heaven). The Hebrew word for “shining one” (helel) was translated into Latin as Lucifer, and the name has since become synonymous with the Devil (written by CNG).

Rev: FORTVNAE REDVCI; S C in exergue; Fortuna stg. l., with branch and rudder on globe, and cornucopiae
RIC 158 (R2). BMC 757. BNC-.
Acquired from Praefectus Coins, February 2020. Ex Stack's Bowers Galleries, NYINC Auction, 17 January 2020, lot 2217. Ex P. & P. Santamaria, 4 June 1952, Signorelli Collection Part II, lot 1256. Formerly in NGC holder #4682693-014, with grade XF.

Vespasian struck a massive bronze issue in 71 which easily dwarfs any other of the reign. The issue is dominated by the Judaea Capta series, but many other important themes are employed by the mint. This Fortuna reverse carries an important propaganda message concerning the safe return of the imperial household. Mattingly in BMCRE explains it as 'the Fortuna who brings Titus home in June 71; the branch which she holds, beside her own rudder and cornucopiae, is either the olive branch of Pax or the laurel of the home-returning conqueror.' Titus had been absent from Rome completing the successful siege of Jerusalem and was en route home in Spring 71. This example is a rare variant bust left (all Vespasian's sestertii with left busts are indeed quite scarce). Interestingly, the left facing sestertius portraits are engraved in a different style than the corresponding right facing ones.

Wonderful fine style and superb EF condition. Cayón 39 (this coin).

Special thanks to Curtis Clay for the additional provenance information.

Obv: IMP CAES VESPASIAN AVG COS VIII P P; Head of Vespasian, laureate, r.; globe at point of bust
Rev: AEQVITAS AVGVSTI; S C in field; Aequitas stg. l., with scales and rod
RIC 1228 (C3). BMC 842. BNC 839.
Ex eBay, 6 February 2020.

Vespasian inherited a financial mess upon his accession in 69. His top priority was putting the state on a sound financial footing. Symbolic of that righting of the empire was the common reverse type of Aequitas. Aequitas holding her scales and measuring rod was probably based on a cult image of the deity. She first shows up as an imperial virtue on the coinage under Galba, a virtue that Vespasian was eager to emulate. This As from late in the reign was struck at Lugdunum (modern Lyon) in a fairly substantial issue, likely produced to rectify a bronze coinage shortage in the Western provinces.

Nice style and good metal.

Obverse: Ear of grain, KAICA POC.
Reverse: Palm tree with 2 bunches of dates and date : LMO
Reference: Hendin-1329.

*Jesus was born sometime between 6 B.C. and 4 B.C.
According to St. Matthew, King Herod as the ruler during the time of the Nativity, and Herod died in 4 B.C. , according the dates of the later on struck coins with the new ruler name and dates (see note)
Later, to kill Jesus and eliminate him as a rival king, Herod ordered the "Massacre of the Innocents" - the killing of all male children in Bethlehem aged two years and under. This means that Jesus may have been up to two years old already by that time, and this sets the Nativity between 6 and 4 B.C.
**Surely All coins at that time were struck under the Roman emperor (who happened to be the first Roman emperor in history Augustus (Octavian) Not Julius Caesar as commonly known, Julius was only a dictator and Caesar during the Roman Republic time, never considered Emperor despite the title IMP on some of his coins).
The dates on coins struck during the time of Nativity, before that time, and even later, completely different story depends on the mint home , the ruler year and the kingdom or empire. Using AD (Anno Domini) was much later.

“Swear to me, young women of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or by the does of the field, that you won’t awaken or arouse love before its proper time.” Song of Solomon.

Hadrian RIC-541 Fouree3 viewsHadrian group 3, Rome mint, AD late 121-123.

This denarius is actually a fouree - a base metal coin plated with silver. The silver has partially worn away revealing the darker base metal.

IMP CAESAR TRAIAN HADRIANVS AVG, Laureate bust right, drapery on far (left) shoulder (RIC bust type A2).
PM TRP COSIII, Roma seated left on pile of arms, holding long scepter with last hand, victorious (small statue of Victory) in right.

2.7 g; 19.1 mm dia; 5h.

This type may have been intended to portray the statue of Roma that was to be installed in the new massive Temple of Venus and Roma (Templum Veneris et Romae). The boundary (pomerium) of the temple had been laid out in AD 121 though the temple was not completed until circa 135. The plans for this temple were reportedly drawn up by Hadrian himself and were subsequently criticized by the Greek architect Apollodorus, who though the statues were too large for the temple. He was reportedly put to death as a result of this criticism. Unlike other dual temples, in this one the two goddesses were in separate cellae, which were placed back to back. Roma faced West (and therefore faced the forum). The temple aroused the wonder of Constantius II during his visit to Rome in 356 and was probably the biggest temple, and only decastyle or ten pillar-fronted temple, in the city. According to Platner, the temple was 145 meters long by 100 meters wide. The pillars were 1.8 meters in diameter and the entire roof was gilt. It was made of concrete with a facing of travertine. It sat immediately to the north of the via Sacra between the forum and the Flavian Amphitheatre (Coliseum) and reportedly necessitated the relocation of the Colossus Neronis slightly closer to the Coliseum.

Hadrian RIC-312 Denarius LIBERAL AVG III4 viewsHadrian COS III, Group 2, Rome mint, circa AD 120 (late) - April 121.

IMP CAESAR TRAIAN HADRIANVS AVG, Laureate head (nude).
PM TRP COSIII, Hadrian seated left on platform, writing at desk with pen, Liberalitas (possibly a statue) stands in the background holding up a coin scoop, an attendant stands behind Emperor, a citizen ascends the front steps, holding out a fold of his toga.
LIBERAL AVG / III in exergue.

RIC II/3 notes that Hadrian's third Liberalitas (distribution of coinage to the Roman citizens) was actually his second as his post-accession Liberalitas in AD 118 was of double the normal amount and was therefore reckoned as two. This Liberalitas III, which can be dated to late 120 "or more likely early 121", consisted of a gift of 150 denarii per citizen and was issued to commemorate the start of Hadrian's quinquennalia (5-year anniversary) period.

2.7 g; 17-18 mm dia; 6h.
Coin holed in antiquity.

Hadrian RIC-345 Silver Quinarius (half-denarius)1 viewsHadrian COS III, Group 2, Rome mint, circa AD 120 (late) - April 121.

IMP CAESAR TRAIAN HADRIANVS AVG, Laureate head (nude).
PM TRP COSIII, Victory standing left, holding palm branch in left hand and extending wreath in right hand.

1.3 g; 12.5x14 mm oval; 7h.

This coin was issued around the same time as the LIBERALITAS AVG III denarius. The small silver quinarii may have been struck for free distribution during the same celebrations. The victory, common on Hadrian's early quinarii (though found in a variety of different poses), likely represents the overall peace Hadrian has brought to the Empire since his accession.

Hadrian RIC-148 Sestertius CONCORDIA2 viewsHadrian group 1, Rome mint, AD 118.

IMP CAESAR TRAIANVS HADRIANVS AVG, Laureate nude bust with drapery on far (left) shoulder.
[PONT] MAX TR POT COS II, Concordia seated left on throne with back, holding out patera in right hand, resting left elbow on head of statue of Spes.
CONCORDIA / SC in exergue.

25.8 g; 33 mm dia; 7h.

This coin appears to be a possible reverse die match with the second example of RIC 148 (bottom row of Plate 60 in RIC II/3). Incidentally, this is the only example shown of RIC-148 or the very similar RIC-98 without a cornucopia portrayed beneath the throne.

This coin, which was likely struck in the first half of 118 like the FORTRED sestertius, expressed the usual assurance that everything in the Empire was in harmony (concordia) after Trajan's death and Hadrian's accession to the throne.

Hadrian RIC-150 Sestertius FORT RED1 viewsHadrian group 1, Rome mint, AD 118.

IMP CAESAR TRAIANVS HADRIANVS AVG, Laureate nude bust with drapery on far (left) shoulder.
[PONT MAX TR POT COS II], S C, Fortuna, veiled, seated left on throne with back, holding rudder in right hand, cornucopia in left.
FORTRED in exergue.

25.2 g; 33.7 mm dia; 7h.

Despite the fact that the reverse legend is not visible, this coin must belongs to this group. The FORTRED sestertii of the earlier AD 117 group 3 (e.g. RIC 100) have the SC in the exergue and later FORTRED sestertii appear with different obverse legends (e.g. HADRIANVS AVGVSTVS). While all three examples of RIC 150 shown in RIC have backless thrones, the throne with back was common on the earlier issues of AD 117. This might indicate that this coin comes from a very early die of RIC 150.

This coin expressed hope for the Emperor's safe arrival in Rome (Fortuna Reduci). Hadrian, who was named Emperor in August 117 while in Cilicia, did not return to Rome until July 118. Thus this coin was likely struck in the first half of 118.

Aelius RIC-2661 Dupondius/As Pannonia2 viewsRIC II/3 describes this denomination as a dupondius/as and assigns this coin to Aelius' group 2, Rome mint, AD 137.

L AELIUS CAESAR, bare head.
TR POT COS II, Pannonia standing w/head left, holding vexillum (barely visible) and hitching robe.
PANNONIA in exergue.

8.1 g; 21 mm dia; 6h.

The type was struck to commemorate the end of Aelius' governorship of the province of Pannonia Superior. Aelius was resident at Carnuntum for at least part of his AD 136-137 governorship.

Apollo was worshipped as the patron of colonists at Tarentum, and he was also the patron of the revered Pythagorean religious order at Tarentum, which existed until the late fourth century. The reverse motif of Herakles fighting the Nemean lion was also used on contemporary silver diobols of Tarentum and its colony Herakleia, though the silver issues usually chose the "tondo" scene of a crouched Herakles wrestling the Nemean lion with a stranglehold (a design also used on the Syracusan gold 100 litrae issue of Dionysios I).

Crawford 42/1, ROMAN REPUBLIC, AR Didrachm - Quadrigatus - VERY RARE12 viewsRome. The Republic.
Corn-Ear Series, 214-212 BCE.
AR Didrachm-Quadrigatus (6.83g; 20mm).
Unknown Sicilian Mint.

Obverse: Laureate Janiform head of the Dioscuri.

Reverse: Jupiter and Victory in fast quadriga galloping right; corn ear below; ROMA in linear frame in exergue.

References: Crawford 42/1; RBW 138 (this coin); Sydenham 66 (R8); BMCRR 108; Hersh 9a (O-6; R-4).

Provenance: Ex Naville Numismatics 47 (3 Mar 2019) Lot 352; RBW Collection [NAC 61 (2011) Lot 141]; privately purchased from Munzen und Medaillen in August 1981.

The last few series of Roman silver didrachm coinage, produced from 225-212 BCE, are nicknamed "quadrigati" because of the common reverse type of Jupiter and Victory in a fast quadriga. Crawford's arrangement of quadrigati into distinct series requires a great amount of study to understand. Collectors and dealers alike often misattribute quadrigati among Crawford's series.

The Crawford 42 series of quadrigati, to which this example belongs, is the rarest of all the quadrigati series. In his study of the 42 series quadrigati, Charles Hersh could only locate 33 examples of the type. Based on the corn-ear control symbol, the series was likely struck somewhere in Sicily, perhaps during Rome’s Second Punic War offensive against Syracuse, from 214-212 BCE. While Crawford puts this series last in order of his various quadrigati series, it is likely they were produced near the same time as the debased, lightweight quadrigati that ended the Crawford 28 series. The coins are generally of debased style and metal, thought their weight is good, and in this regard they are similar to Crawford 31 quadrigati. Stylistically, the series 42 quadrigati typically display well-defined, separated “J”-shaped sideburns, with horizontal hairs, on the Janiform head. Neck truncations range from open C curve (as on this example) to straight and V truncations. On the reverse, Jupiter's thunderbolt is entirely within the line border, angle of the horses is on the low-side, and ROMA is always in relief in a linear frame. The type usually has a corn-ear on the reverse beneath the quadriga; however, “anonymous” versions of this series, without corn-ears but stylistically identical to the corn-eared coins, are known.

It's not unusual at the start of a reign for the Rome mint to strike coin types that conjure up feelings of familiarity and continuance. Vesta is certainly one of those types and Titus' moneyers made full use of her propaganda value. She frequently appears on the bronze coinage with her message of religious piety and security. Her main attribute here is the palladium - a wooden cult image of Pallas Athena which oversees the safety and well being of Rome.

Great style and good metal.

Several 19th century researchers thought that the monogram could represent a family name, such as Romilia or Romanillus. Today, it is generally accepted as a monogram for Roma.

L. Lucretius Trio is not known to history. His coins were attributed to 76 BCE by Crawford, but Hersh and Walker down-dated the issue to 74 BCE in their analysis of the Mesagne Hoard (ANS Museum Notes 1984). Michael Harlan proposed an even later date of 72 BCE.

The coin’s design has received various interpretations over the years. Grueber thought it referred to a naval victory by one of the moneyer’s ancestors. The use of Neptune, wearing a victor’s wreath, is clear. Crawford thought the reverse may depict Palaemon, a child sea-god who came to sailors in distress. Palaemon’s mother was Leucothia, whose name bears slight resemblance to Lucretius. Harlan believes the reverse depicts a winged Cupid gleefully playing on a dolphin, and that the coin alludes to naval victories by Lucullus over Mithridates in 73 BCE (remember, Harlan proposed 72 BCE for the issue date). Whichever interpretation is correct, it’s a charming design somewhat reminiscent of 3rd century didrachms of Taras.

The obverse dies bear control-marks, each specific to a single die.

Domitian RIC-46843 viewsÆ Sestertius, 22.60g
Rome mint, 86 AD
Obv: IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM COS XII CENS PER P P; Head of Domitian, laureate, bearded, r., with aegis
Rev: S C in field; Domitian standing l., with parazonium and spear; to l., river-god (Rhenus) reclining
RIC 468 (C). BMC 377. BNC 399.
Ex eBay, 9 February 2020. Ex Künker, eLive Auction 57, 12 December 2019, lot 97.

In late 82 or early 83 Domitian conducted a census of Gaul as a smoke screen in order to make preparations to invade the Germanic Chatti lands across the Rhine. Not much is known of what the actual war consisted of - perhaps some road building, punitive raids against Chatti strongholds, and minor skirmishing. No large battles, à la Mons Graupius, have come down to us, prompting Tacitus' assertion 'that in recent times, the Germans were more triumphed over than conquered'. Even the date of the conflict is in dispute - although Domitian did rack up four salutations between June 83 and September 84, several of which must be attributed to the Chattan Campaign. Domitian celebrated a triumph over the Chatti in 83, after which he claimed the title 'Germanicus'.

Beginning in 85 Domitian struck a fairly impressive issue of sestertii, M. Grant hyperbolically called it the most 'ambitious' of any one reign or year. The series is the first major aes issue of Domitian's reign and is dominated by panoramic types commemorating his military victory over the Germanic tribe the Chatti. One of the more interesting types carried over into 86 features a triumphant Domitian standing over the reclining river-god Rhenus. It is a more poetic type than those showing captives or war trophies, although, even here Domitian is resting his foot on the river-god's knee symbolising Rome's domination over Germania.

Fine style and good metal.
