|Gordian III, 29 July 238 - 25 February 244 A.D.|
|MA112838. Silver antoninianus, RIC IV 95, RSC IV 404, Hunter III 71, SRCV III 8670, aVF, edge split, small cracks, Rome mint, 2.732 grams, 22.7 mm, die axis 180o, 1 Jan 241 - Jul 243 A.D.; obverse IMP GORDIANVS PIVS FEL AVG, radiate, draped, and cuirassed bust right, seen from behind; reverse VIRTVTI AVGVSTI (to the valor of the Emperor), Hercules standing right, naked, right hand on hip, resting with left hand on club set on rock, lion skin besides club;
estimated value: $60.00|
|Hercules is depicted in the same pose as the Farnese Hercules, a massive marble sculpture, which depicts a muscular yet weary Hercules leaning on his club, which has his lion-skin draped over it. He has just performed the last of The Twelve Labors, which is suggested by the apples of the Hesperides he holds behind his back. The Farnese Hercules is probably an enlarged copy made in the early third century A.D., signed by Glykon, from an original by Lysippos that would have been made in the fourth century B.C. The copy was made for the Baths of Caracalla in Rome (dedicated in 216 A.D.), where it was recovered in 1546. Today it is in Naples National Archaeological Museum. The statue was well-liked by the Romans, and copies have been found in many Roman palaces and gymnasiums. It is one of the most famous sculptures of antiquity, and has fixed the image of the mythic hero in the human imagination.|

How To Bid
||Register for a Forum Ancient Coins account - if you haven't already.
||Login to your account - if you haven't already.
||Learn about the seller - Read feedback and ratings left by others to assure that the seller is trustworthy. Forum bans sellers that have customer complaints, but it is still a good idea to check the seller's feedback.
||Know the details - read the item description, seller terms, and shipping charges closely. Sellers are required to accept PayPal (and you should only pay with PayPal), to guarantee delivery, and to guarantee authenticity without a time limit. Read the sellers listing for other terms and return policies.
||If you have questions - contact the seller FORVM AUCTIONS before you bid (click on the seller's username to send a message to the seller).
||Place your bid! Bid the maximum amount you want to pay for the item. Your bid is an automated proxy bid and the amount will always be kept secret. The program will automatically bid for you, the lowest possible amount (one increment above the next highest bid), and only up to your maximum. If other bids are placed before the auction closes, the system will automatically bid for you again, but again only the minimum amount needed, and only up to your maximum. If someone else bids more than your maximum, you will not be the high bidder; to win, you will need to place a higher bid before the auction closes. If you are the high bidder at the end of the auction, you are the winner. As the winner of the auction, you only pay the lowest possible winning bid, which may be less than your maximum bid.
