Obverse: CRISPINA AVGVSTA / Bust of Crispina.
Reverse: DIS GENITALIBVS / Lighted altar.

RIC #281; Sear #5999.

This coin of Crispina has an unusual reverse type: an altar dedicated to the gods of childbirth. We know of no children born to Crispina and Commodus. Stevenson says of this reverse (p. 332): "It would seem that the empress had dedicated an altar to the dii genitales, either for having had children, or that she might obtain fertility from them, or that she might commend the child with which she was pregnant to their care and protection.

501. Constantine I Alexandria Posthumous26 viewsAlexandria

The city passed formally under Roman jurisdiction in 80 BC, according to the will of Ptolemy Alexander but after it had been previously under Roman influence for more than a hundred years. Julius Caesar dallied with Cleopatra in Alexandria in 47 BC, saw Alexander's body (quipping 'I came to see a king, not a collection of corpses' when he was offered a view of the other royal burials) and was mobbed by the rabble. His example was followed by Marc Antony, for whose favor the city paid dearly to Octavian, who placed over it a prefect from the imperial household.

From the time of annexation onwards, Alexandria seems to have regained its old prosperity, commanding, as it did, an important granary of Rome. This fact, doubtless, was one of the chief reasons which induced Augustus to place it directly under imperial power. In AD 215 the emperor Caracalla visited the city and for some insulting satires that the inhabitants had directed at him, abruptly commanded his troops to put to death all youths capable of bearing arms. This brutal order seems to have been carried out even beyond the letter, for a general massacre ensued.

Even as its main historical importance had formerly sprung from pagan learning, now Alexandria acquired fresh importance as a centre of Christian theology and church government. There Arianism was formulated and where also Athanasius, the great opponent of both Arianism and pagan reaction, triumphed over both, establishing the Patriarch of Alexandria as a major influence in Christianity for the next two centuries.

As native influences began to reassert themselves in the Nile valley, Alexandria gradually became an alien city, more and more detached from Egypt and losing much of its commerce as the peace of the empire broke up during the 3rd century AD, followed by a fast decline in population and splendour.

In the late 4th century, persecution of pagans by Christians had reached new levels of intensity. Temples and statues were destroyed throughout the Roman empire: pagan rituals became forbidden under punishment of death, and libraries were closed. In 391, Emperor Theodosius I ordered the destruction of all pagan temples, and the Patriarch Theophilus, complied with his request. It is possible that the great Library of Alexandria and the Serapeum was destroyed about this time. The pagan mathematician and philosopher Hypathia was a prominent victim of the persecutions.

The Brucheum and Jewish quarters were desolate in the 5th century, and the central monuments, the Soma and Museum, fell into ruin. On the mainland, life seemed to have centred in the vicinity of the Serapeum and Caesareum, both which became Christian churches. The Pharos and Heptastadium quarters, however, remained populous and left intact.

Byzantine Empire: Andronicus II Palaeologus with Michael IX (1282-1328) Æ Trachy, Constantinople? (Sear-2416 var; DOC 599-600 var; LPC 16-17 var; PCPC 148-149 var))15 viewsObv: Facing bust of the Virgin, orans, with bust of Infant Christ on breast; cross of pellets to either side
Rev: Andronicus and Michael standing facing, holding long cross(?) between them.

This issue is possibly unrecorded with the crosses of four pellets on the obverse. Also, the top of the object the emperors hold is flatly struck, and it is unclear if it is a long cross or labarum.

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).

Unusually, this quinarius lacks the de rigueur Victory on the reverse, instead we have an interesting historical type of a Herald announcing Domitian's Ludi Saeculares. This was the only saeculum type struck on his quinarii. The games were held in 88 following the Augustan cycle. Presumably this piece was struck for commemorative purposes in conjunction with the games. RIC places the frequency rating for this type as 'very common' (C2), however, this seems a bit over generous. Perhaps a rating of 'common' (C) would be more appropriate. The upcoming RIC II.1 Addenda notes the frequency discrepancy, citing C. Clay's concern that only nineteen specimens are in King's survey of Roman quinarii.

A lovely piece with dark toning and fine style.

The name Ininthimeus is Sarmatian. He may have been a younger son of Cotys III. Whereas the elder sons usually bore the traditional dynastic names of Sauromates and Rhecuporis, a son born subsequently might be given a less familiar name, perhaps in honour of an influential member of the wife's family.
During his reign the intrusion of the Goths created great pressure on the Bosporan Kingdom. Because of that his coinage is generally crude in style and usually poorly preserved.
The coin of this series probably is a double denarius marked B*. Sometimes one of this two elements is omitted and probably the die-cutters have seen the * as symbol for the divine Apertura (MacDonald).

Kyzikos, Mysia, c. 450 - 400 B.C.7 viewsDuring the Peloponnesian War, 431 - 404 B.C., Cyzicus was subject alternately to the Athenians and Lacedaemonians. In the naval Battle of Cyzicus in 410, an Athenian fleet completely destroyed a Spartan fleet. At the peace of Antalcidas in 387, like the other Greek cities in Asia, it was made over to Persia. Alexander the Great captured it from the Persians in 334 B.C.

Obverse : head of Herakles right, wearing Nemean Lion skin headdress knotted at base of neck; Reverse:ΑΛΕΞΑΝ∆ΡΟΥ ( means " Of Alexander " in Ancient Greek ), Zeus enthroned left, right leg forward (archaic lifetime style), feet on footstool, eagle in extended right, long scepter vertical behind in left, ΦIΛH monogram over M below throne.

An Extremely Fine Masterpiece.

Struck with dies by "The Alexander Dekadrachm Master," the same highly-skilled hand who engraved the famous Dekadrachms, including Price 3598, with which this shares all symbols and their arrangement. These coins are from a huge issue struck for the mass-weddings of the soldiers of Alexander the Great to Persian women, and their subsequent return to Macedonia. Perhaps the very best style of the entire lengthy issue of Alexander coinage.

Comments:
An interesting coin: how often did husband-and-wife magistrates team to sign Greek Imperial coins, with two Latin names at that? As for the accusative, it's an elliptical usage that shows up now and then, frequently honoring heroes or deities; see

It was sold as cf Price 677-678 because those are the two coins with Chimaera facing right, both struck in Corinth. Price 677 has the NO under throne the 678 has the HP monogram. This coin instead has the Babylon distinct monogram (except the Price 2105-Miletus mint having the same/similar monogram). Neither Corinth coin has any example with the "Babylon" under throne monogram or the tell tale "Babylon" M to the left. This coin fits in perfectly with the Babylon tetradrachms numbered Price 3599 to Price 3670. (Except Zeus has crossed legs to add to the hyrbridity)Chance Vandal

ROMAN EMPIRE, Nero / Jupiter / Denarius52 viewsAttribution: RIC 64 (RIC I)

Date Minted: 66-67 AD (Rome)

Obverse: IMP NERO CAESAR AVGVSTVS - Laureate head of Nero facing right

Reverse: IVPPITER CVSTOS - Jupiter seated left, holding thunderbolt and sceptre

Weight: 2.84 grams

Size: 17.6mm


An excellent mature portrait of Nero with striking details and stylistically superior devices on a flan that is just a touch tight, but still full legends. The reverse, however, exhibits significantly more wear than the obverse, possibly from cabinet wear as it does appear that this coin has been out of the ground for an extended period. Lightly toned.

2 [?] cash (cast brass), 1616-1625 [?], probably Xingjing mint, 28 mm., nominal weight 1.6 qian (= 5.97 gr.), but most seem to be heavier.

Obv: Abkai fulingga han jiha [in Manchurian = Abkai-fulingga Khan’s money].

Rev: Blank.

In 1583, Nurhachi emerged as a chieftain among the Manchu and began to subjugate the neighboring Jurched tribes, and by 1608 was ruler of the almost all of Manchuria. In 1616 he announced the establishment of the Jin State, and proclaimed himself Khan, with the reign title of Abkai-fulingga. In 1618 he began his campaign against the Chinese Ming Dynasty. In 1622, he moved his capital from Xingjing to Liaoyang, and in 1625 to Shenyang. He died in 1626.

In 1599, Nurhachi caused a Manchu alphabet to be created to replace the Mongolian script that was previously used.

The title PARTHICUS MAXIMUS Severus got in January 198 after the 2nd Parthian War whose victory (Victoria Parthica) was celebrated in Rome on 28. Jan. AD 198.
RESTITVTOR VRBIS at Severus means putting things in the order in which he felt they ought to be, not just that in which they had been before. He was no conservative by nature (BMCR V, p.cxli)

Comments from Mr. C. Clay:
"The interest of this rev. type, apart from its rarity on sestertii, is that it apparently represents the famous equestrian statue of Trajan in his Forum, which mightily impressed Constantius II when he visited Rome in 357 AD, but of which nothing is today extant.

This interpretation of the type is based on its date, soon after 1 Jan. 112 (Trajan COS VI), which we know was the dedication date of the Forum. Other coins of similar date explicitly commemorated the Forum, with legends FORVM TRAIANI and BASILICA VLPIA, and the horseman coin type make a very statuesque impression, the upright spear in the emperor's right hand hitting the ground and apparently providing support for that corner of the statue, in place of the raised right foreleg of the horse.

Moreover, when Septimius Severus used a very similar type on his own coins, he joined it with the famous Trajanic rev. legend SPQR OPTIMO PRINCIPI, the only time this legend appeared in Septimius' coinage. Who can doubt that these coins commemorate the Senate's vote of an equestrian statue to Septimius too, and that this statue deliberately imitated the famous one of Trajan in his Forum, explaining why the Trajanic legend was revived for the rev. type?"

Commemorates the improvement of Rome's water supply by the construction of the Aqua Traiana, financed entirely by Trajan personally and dedicated on 20 June 109. It was a valuable addition to the water supply to the expanding west bank suburbs of Rome (presently called Trastevere) which it connected to water sources from nearby lake Sabatinus (Bracciano lake) at 30 km north west of Rome. The total length of the aquaduct was around 58 km and had a capacity of 118,200 m3 water supply per day. The terminal castellum was surmounted by the statue depicted on this coin type.
