Rare, only one spec. in AMNG ex coll. Löbbecke

From Pliny the Elder we know the detailed description of a famous bronze sculpture of Praxiteles (4th century BC) named Sauroktonos, the Lizard-killer. The original sculpture is lost. We have two Roman marble copies in the Louvre and in the Musei Vaticani in Rome. May be the coin is the pic of Pliny's description or may be not. But the reverse shows clearly the two sides of Apollo: Here the youthful smiling bringer of light and in the same moment the merciless killer for fun.

BYZANTINE, Constantine IV, AV Solidus.114 viewsConstantine IV, Pogonatus, 15 July 668 - 10 July 685 A.D.

Cf. Sear 1153.
Constantine IV ruled jointly with his father, Constans II, from A.D.654 to A.D.668, and then with his brothers, Heraclius and Tiberius, from A.D.659 until A.D. 681.
Constantine IV, Pogonatus should be credited with saving Europe from Muslim conquest when, after besieging Constantinople for four years, the Arabs led by caliph Muawija I were forced to retreat. The use by the Byzantines of the famous "Greek Fire" having made the city impregnable. In A.D.681 Constantine IV deposed his two brothers. Constantine IV was succeeded by his 16 year old son Justinian II in A.D.685.

Aorta: 206: B20, O4, R127, T126, M6. Aorta has this listed as "Virtus" on the reverse and "Mars" in a separate type listing, T73. Aorta also does not have a B20, O4, R127, T73, M6 grouping listed. Looking at Wildwinds, I believe that my coin depicts Mars with his helmet and have listed RIC 109 which uses Mars in the reverse description, Aorta notwithstanding.

The Georgian year is encoded using the "Paschal cycle". This dating system is based on the creation date being March 22, 5604 BC. From this date, they ran through a 532-year cycle. So, Year 1 was March 22, 5604 BC for the 1st cycle. And the 13th cycle's Year 1 was March 22, 781 AD. For years 346 to 532, add 780 to obtain the corresponding year in AD. The year starts off at March 22nd for each AD year. So, 430 + 780 = March 22, 1210 AD. For more information, please see Sweeny...

Obv: [* ]MOnTA • LADISLAI • DEI [• G], Patriarchal cross, K-R (privy mark) in fields.

Rev: [+ TEMPOR]E • [IO • GVBER]nATORI, Bohemian lion facing left.

Struck in 1452 per Huszár or post 1447 (probably 1452) per Pohl to pay laborers (per Pohl). This is a mule (Although not noted as such in Huszár, it is stated to be a mule in Unger and Pohl. It was listed as Unger 493 in the first edition of that catalog, but is not listed in the second edition). The “obverse” of this coin is the obverse of a denar (Huszár 654, Pohl 160-3, Unger 505c, Réthy II 183) struck on behalf of Ladislaus V by the Hussite warlord Jan Giskra in 1447-1450 (per Pohl, Huszár and Unger). The “reverse” is the obverse of a denar (Huszár 620, Pohl 177, Unger 486, Réthy II 157A) struck by János Hunyadi in 1447-1450 (per Huszár and Unger) or 1447-1451 (per Pohl). The privy mark is a collective mark struck in Kremnitz (formerly Körmöcbánya, Hungary, now Kremnica, Slovakia) that was used on both types in all those years (per Pohl).

Huszár/Pohl rarity rating R1. The reverse legend in Huszár differs from that in Réthy only in that there is a final “S” in the legend in Huszár. This coin appears to comport with Réthy.

Huszár 654, Pohl 160-1, Unger 505b, RĂ©thy II 183108 viewsHungary. Ladislaus V (László in Hun.) “Posthumous” (1440-1457). Billon denar, .49 g., 17 mm.

Obv: * MOnETA • LA[DISL]AI • DEI • G, Patriarchal cross, K–+/P (privy mark)

Rev: + REGIS VnGARIE ET CETERA, Crowned lion of Berszterce facing left.

The type was struck 1447-1450 (per Pohl, Huszár & Unger) on behalf of Ladislaus by the Hussite warlord, Jan Giskra, but only in those parts of upper Hungary under Giskra’s control. This privy mark was struck in Kremnitz (formerly Körmöcbánya, Hungary, now Kremnica, Slovakia) by Petrus Jung, kammergraf (per Pohl).

Huszár/Pohl rarity rating 5. The reverse legend described in Huszár differs slightly from that depicted and described in Réthy and Unger. This coin comports with Réthy and Unger.

The depiction of Apollon Sauroktonos, a famous statue of Praxiteles, is known from a description by Pliny the Elder. The original is lost but we have 2 copies in the Vatican Museum and the Louvre. on these copies the r. hand is not raised. The statue in the Cleveland Museum of arts, acquired in 2004, is discussed.

Apparently RBW purchased more than one Wolf and Twins As from Bank Leu in January 1985, as the specimen in the NAC auction shares the same Bank Leu origin and date. I have the original RBW ticket for this coin and so I’m confident that the provenance information is correct.

10 cash (cast brass), 1828-1850 [?], Xinjiang Province, Aksu mint, 26 mm, nominal weight 5.595 grams (1 qian 5 fen).

Obv: Daoguang tongbao.

Rev: Aksu left (in Manchu script) and Aqs(u) right (in Turkic script), ba nian (8th year) top and wu (ten) bottom.

Type DG.2.1 and DG.2.2 coins differ in the style of the ba. In DG2.1 coins, the ba is comprised of two strokes that do not touch.

A commemorative marking the suppression of a revolt in Xinjiang Province in 1828 (per KM). The ten cash coin was introduced to overcome the shortage of coins for army pay, but was effectively a devaluation, given the nominal weight of the coins, and they circulated as two cash coins (per Hartill).

Hartill rarity 9 (QC) & 14 (CCC).

Ref. Feuardent: 2838

Lazarus Gottlieb Laufer was mint-master at Nuremburg from 1663 until his death in 1709.

This jeton celebrates the building of the new “Pont Royal” in Paris. A bridge had stood at this site since 1632 when a wooden toll bridge of fifteen arches was built to replace the Tulleries Ferry. However this bridge, known colloquially as the “Pont Rouge” due to its colour, proved to be a very fragile construction. It needed extensive repairs in 1648 and again in 1651 before being burnt in 1654 and damaged by a flood in 1656 such that, by 1660, it needed completely rebuilt. The bridge needed repaired again in 1673 but, in 1684, it was completely destroyed when eight of its arches were swept away by a flood. A completely new stone bridge, consisting of five arches, was constructed between 1685 and 1689. The work was entirely funded by Louis XIV himself and it was he who named the new bridge the “Pont Royal”. In the 18th century the bridge, which is still standing to this day, was a popular meeting place for a variety of festivities and celebrations.

RIC 1422AA (R2). BMC p. 94 note. RSC 38. RPC -. BNC -.
Acquired from Ancient Imports, February 2012.

Struck in 71 AD at Ephesus, the type AVG within wreath is not rare in and of itself, however, what makes this coin special is the mint mark. Normally this type dated COS III should have EPHE as the mint mark, here there is a faint BY mark between the ties. Cohen records this reverse but the new RIC and BMC list it as unverified. Thanks to Harry Sneh I know of two other examples of this type and I was able to find one more online sold by Spink in 2004, so a total of four examples. RIC II author Ian Carradice has been made aware of this and presumably will list it as 1422AA in the RIC II addenda.
