Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov Nikopolis Addenda #9
« on: December 23, 2021, 03:49:13 am »

As you know 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 €110.- + shipping.

This table shows the amazing success story of the collaboration with Nina Hristova and Gospodin Jekov. It is a story that is far from over. We owe this not least to the generosity of Mr. Josef Sermarini, who with his Forum Ancient Coins has made this space available to us. It proves how science can be done with this help.

So please see this  thread as integral supplement of Nikopolis 2021! In any case the year of the edition should always be added to the reference number, because sometimes the listed numbers have changed!

Thanks
Jochen

A wrong coin of Commodus for Nikopolis

Unfortunately, a coin has crept into the new Nicopolis 2021 eition by mistake, which does not belong to Nicopolis. The following coin is listed under No. 8.10.34.1:
Commodus, AD 177-192
AE 27, 9.64g
struck under governor Caecilius Servilianus
obv. AVT KAI MAR AVRH - KOMODOC
         Bust, cuirassed, laureate, r.
rev. HG KAI CERBEILIA NEIKOPOL PROC ICT
        Emperor, nude but for chlamys waving behind, on horseback galloping r.,
        holding transverse spear  (Depicted by Moushmov)
ref. a) AMNG 1236
        b) Moushmov 892
I found the original picture at acsearch.com. The description there is:
MOESIA  INFERIOR,  Nicopolis  ad  Istrum., Commodus. AD 177-192. Æ (27mm, 9.85 g, 8h). Caecilius Servilianus, hegemon. AVT KAI M AVPH KOMOΔOC, laureate, draped, and cuirassed bust right / HΓ KAI CЄPOVΛIA NЄI[KOΠO], ΛЄITΩN in exergue, Commodus right on horseback, holding spear. RPC IV –; H&J, Nikopolis –; AMNG I –; Mouchmov –; Varbanov –. VF, dark green patina, some roughness.
From the estate of Thomas Bentley Cederlind.
CNG,  Electronic  Auction  395,  Lot  266,  12.4.17
I was puzzled by the fact that the legend in ex. was only ΛЄITΩN without the usual ΠPOC ICTRON at the end, which in itself only occurs on small coins.

Unfortunately, part of the legend is outside of the coin. But present is HΓ KAI CЄPOVΛIA for Caecilius Servilianus. And Servilianus occurs not only on coins from Nicopolis, but also from those of Anchialos, Augusta Traiana, Hadrianopolis, Pautalia, Philippopolis and Topiros. A glance at my list shows that KAI CEROVLIA occurs only in Hadrianopolis, and as KAI CEROVLIANOV.... The NEI has simply been added.

One look at Varbanov II is enough and, voila!, there it is:
Varbanov 3319 corr, p. 272 (cites Jurukova Hadrianopolis, 127).

Yes, even CNG sometimes makes such mistakes!

A new type (or a correction) for Commodus

Commodus, AD 177-192
AE 17, 3.89g, 17.39mm, 210°
obv.: AV M AVRH - KOMODOC
         Laureate head r.
rev.: NEIKOPOLI / PROC-I / CTRON
         Eros, nude, winged(?), laying on lion's skin l., resting head in   
         left hand and holding in r. hand arrow(?); before him the torch
ref.: a) not in AMNG
        b) not in Varbanov
        c) not in Hristova-Hoeft-Jekov (2021):
            rev. not listed
            obv. e.g. 8.10.14.4
         probably unpublished     
         Pedigree:
         ex Gorny&Mosch auction 265, Lot 726
         ex coll. Erwin Link
coll. Hoeft

This type is closely related to No. 8.10.14.4. The reverse of No. 8.10.14.4 has been described as Herakles, reclining on lion's skin, his club before. But on this coin it is clear a torch before him. And with the head in his hand he reminds of the Eros coins with turned torch. So it belongs to the type of Eros playing Herakles!

I have here a variety of reverse legend for Caracalla not found in HHJ 2019

obv: AV.M.AV ANTWNINOC laureate head right

rev: VP.AVR.GALLOV.NIKOPOLI. PROC I tetrastyle temple, statue of Askleipos

obv: same as 8.18.31.2.

diameter: 27 mm

weight: 13.6 g

The coin is quite worn, but the important details are there.

Cheers,
