Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov, Nikopolis Addenda #5
« on: February 28, 2017, 09:56:45 am »
Dear friends of Nikopolis ad Istrum!

Today I got the 1st copy of Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov, Nicopolis ad Istrum. It contains altogether 2482 types on 512 pp., all described and depicted b/w. Now it is my job to proofread it and to make needed corrections. I think it can be published in May 2017
It is the most comprehensive book about the coinage of Nikopolis ad Istrum worldwide. The book can be ordered from me by PM. It is printed on demand. The price is €120.- + shipping. Here I have the statistics oft the last 5 editions:

                                        '11    '12    '13    '15    '17
 1. pseudo-autonomous       23     29     27     31     34
 2. Antoninus Pius               31     32     32     35     36
 3. Marcus Aurelius                8       7      8       8       9
 4. Commodus                     81     98   111   126   134
 5. Severus                        469   517   584   622   686   
 6. Severus & Caracalla          4       3       3      3      3
 7. Julia Domna                    80     80     96    98   101

 9. Caracalla & Geta               7       7       7       8       8
10. Plautilla                         35      35      36    38    40

19. doubtful coins                  -          -       -      8      8
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
sum                                  1830  1984 2210  2331  2482

Some coins from Nikopolis Addenda #4 haven't found their way into the new catalog. They were too worn.

But this is not the end of the story. The chase for new types goes on! So please see this thread as supplement of Nikopolis 2017!

Thanks
Jochen

I think the left coin of No. 8.14.47.27 is the same type. It deserves its own number.

There is a die break between A and V of AV making it look like a M.

New Die-Combination Macrinus and Tyche Euposia
« Reply #14 on: March 08, 2017, 04:25:42 pm »
I have only the 1st Ed. of Hristova-Jekov, but this coin seems to present at least a new die-combination, Pat Lawrence's MBd * and the Tyche Euposia found on rare Diadumenian Hr-Hoeft-J (2015) 8.25.38.10 ** -- if that's incorrect, please correct me.

Hi archivum!

Nice find! Not in Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2017). Can you provide size and weight? I would like to add it as #014 to this thread. Here is my description:

#014

A new die combination and a rev. variant for Macrinus

Macrinus, AD 217-218
AE 26, 13.25g
struck under Statius Longinus
obv. AVT K M OPEL - CEVH MAKRINOC
       Bust, draped and cuirassed, seen from front, laureate, r.
rev. VP CTA LONGINO[V NI - KOPOLITWN PR]OC I
      Tyche Euposia, in long garment and mantle, wearing kalathos, stg. frontal, head r., holding in
       l. arm cornucopiae, on which infant Ploutos std. l., and in extended r. hand rudder
Ref.: a) not AMNG
        b) not in Varbanov
        c) not in Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2017):
            rev. 8.25.38.10 var. (for Diadumenian)
            obv. e.g. No. 8.23.7.7 (same die)
        possibly unpublished
coll. archivum, Forum Ancient Coins
The legend break on rev. is only a suggestion!

Now we have altogether 6 types of Tyche Euposia from Nikopolis:
2x Macrinus: HrHJ (2017) 8.23.38.8 and your new type
3x Diadumenian: HrHJ (2017) 8.25.38.10-12
1x Elagabal: HrHJ (2017) 8.26.38.19

and 1 type from Markianopolis:
1x Caracalla: HJ (2014) 6.18.38.9

I love this type!

Thanks, Jochen; I love this type too -- your long note on Euposia / Eubosia in "Coins of Mythological Interest" was very illuminating. (I think both spellings likely had their own supporters, with different ideas about what the word principally promised, a bit like "Good Drinks" or "Good Eats"!) Somewhere I have another Diadumenian / Euposia from Nikopolis that I must compare with the various dies now so well-catalogued on your various pages and Pat Lawrence's. As for this newly posted Macrinus / Euposia, weight / size are 13,25 g / 26 mm. I believe you're correct when it comes to the die-break on this one; the picture I posted does not fully do the coin justice, but that reverse legend is weak overhead on the coin itself, too.

Not from Nikopolis, but from Topiros.

AE 24, 14.42g, 180°
struck under Caecilius Servilianus
obv. [A]V KAI M AVR - KOMOΔOC
       laureate head r.
rev. EPI.KAIKI.CER. - BEILI [TOPEIREITW] / N
      Hercules, nude, seated left on rock outcropping, holding in extended r. had club set on ground
      and resting with l. hand on rock
Ref.: a) not in AMNG
        b) not in Varbanov
        c) not in Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2017)

Maybe in fact Topirus, the same as RPC temp. 3619 (ANS, not illustrated), where the governor's name is wrongly restored as Maternus? This Hercules seated on rocks is a standard reverse type for Topirus. The weights of the two coins differ greatly, but their diameters are the same.

Thanks, Curtis! Yes it is the typical rev. type of Topiros. A coin of Antoninus has a similar depiction. I can read clearly KAIKI.CEPBEIΛ... But Caecilius Servilianus was in the times of Commodus governor of Thrace, so of Topiros too! And his title in Nicopolis ad Istrum was "hegemoneuontos". This coin is correctly described by Wildwinds!

Jochen,

I'm not quite clear whether you are accepting or rejecting my suggestion?

It seems very likely to me that these are two descriptions of one and the same coin.

On the ANS specimen the governor's name is missing and Maternus has been wrongly restored in place of Servilianus.

On CNG's coin the ethnic is missing and the cataloguer has wrongly restored Nicopolis for Topirus.

I couldn't find the coin in Wildwinds; please specify what reference they cite, Mouchmov, Varbanov etc. and the catalogue number.
