This is a Thessalonica minted coin, it contains no silver.

DOC lists 9 examples with weight s running from 1.82gm to 5.10gm and size from 18mm to 22mm

I have numerous examples of this coin, this is by far the most attractive I have ever seen and it is one of the highlights of my collection.

When voting be careful to compare this with other coins of the same denomination, not the smaller ones which have cause to look even more crude. While this is crude and probably easily bested, I would prefer the coin that ousts this entrant at least have as much of the name of the ruler as does this one (IWA at the top of the outer circle).

Neapolis (modern day Naples) was an early Rhodian colony, originally named Parthenope. Its name was changed to Neapolis in ca. 450 BC. The obverse of this issue represents the Siren Parthenope who was the local goddess of Neapolis. The man-headed bull reverse was a type shared by a number of Campanian cities and may have generally been understood as representing Achelos, the father of Sirens. The name of Achelos appears in cults throughout the Greek world and in mythology as the archetypal river-god and may have been used in this context in Campania.

This is the Wildwinds example

Ptolemy Soter, wanting to integrate Egyptian religion with that of their Hellenic rulers, promoted worship of Serapis as a deity that would win the reverence of both groups alike. This was despite the curses of the Egyptian priests against the gods of previous foreign rulers (i.e Set who was lauded by the Hyksos). Alexander the Great had attempted to use Amun for this purpose, but Amum was more prominent in Upper Egypt, and not as popular in Lower Egypt, where the Greeks had stronger influence. The Greeks had little respect for animal-headed figures, and so an anthropomorphic statue was chosen as the idol, and proclaimed as the equivalent of the highly popular Apis. It was named Aser-hapi (i.e. Osiris-Apis), which became Serapis, and was said to be Osiris in full, rather than just his Ka (life force). Ptolemy's efforts were successful - in time Serapis was held by the Egyptians in the highest reverence above all other deities, and he was adored in Athens and other Greek cities.

Struck in preparation of the 900th anniversary of Rome celebrated in AD 147.
The river god Tiber plays an important role in ancient Roman legends such as Rhea Silvia, the mother of Romulus and Remus, who was thrown into the river to be drowned. She fell into the arms of the River god who married her; Romulus and Remus were saved by the river god Tiber who safely left the twins in a pool where they were rescued by a wolf.

FDC coins of this emperor are not rare and this is one of those in my view. Appears to be RIC 250, but does not fit the description exactly. Probably a die variant only.

This common coin is in stunningly good condition; every hair is visible on the portrait, all details on the figures on the reverse are not worn, this coin is evenly patinated with a light brown patina and even all of the mint-marks are virtually flawless (although the reverse does have one small mark and is slightly weakly struck). The best of this type I have ever seen or owned.

Here's a link to the coin in my gallery:

Julius Caesar~0.jpg
ROMAN IMPERATORS, Julius Caesar635 viewsR5384
ROMAN IMPERATORIAL: Julius Caesar, as dictator (49-44 BC). Silver denarius (4.04 gm). Mint moving with Caesar, 4847 BC. Female head (Clementia?) right, wearing diadem, oak wreath and pearl necklace, numeral LII (52) behind / Trophy of Gallic arms consisting of a horned helmet, shield, mail cuirass, and carnyx, axe surmounted by animals head to right, CAE-SAR across lower field. Crawford 452/2. Sydenham 1009. CRI 11.

The obverse type, which probably depicts Clementia (clemency), symbolizes Caesar's leniency toward defeated enemies. The LII behind her head may indicate Caesars age (52) when these coins were struck. The reverse symbolizes Caesar's long years of campaigning in Gaul, where he cemented his reputation as a military commander of genius.

Roman Republic, C. Mamilius C.f. Limetanus, 82 BC147 viewsC. Mamilius C.f. Limetanus. Silver Denarius (3.81 g), 82 BC. Rome. Draped bust of Mercury right, wearing winged petasus; behind, A above caduceus. Reverse : C MAMIL LIME(TA)N, Odysseus (Ulysses in Latin form) advancing right, holding staff and extending hand to his dog Argus, coming to greet him. Crawford 362/1; Sydenham 741; Mamilia 6.

The types on this coin allude to the moneyer's claim to descent from Telegonus, son of Ulysses/Odysseus and Circe, and hence from the god Mercury. When Odysseus returns home after twenty years disguised as a beggar and his old dog, who had been neglected, is the only one who recognizes him.

This moneyer was the step-brother of Octavian, who was just seven years old at the time of this issue. The reverse of this coin commemorates the construction, in 144 B.C., of the Aqua Marcia by Q. Marcius Rex, whose statue appears above the aqueduct.
