Roman Coins / Re: Civil War 68/69 CE "Eid Mar"
« Last post by jskirwin on Today at 01:51:31 pm »
I had no clue such a coin existed. Now that I do, I'll have to add it to my must-have list.

I agree with you: this coin speaks volumes. Minted about a century after the Eid Mar and Caesar's murder, it allows us to step into the mind of the person who authorized its minting. He clearly felt affinity for the assassins, and minting a coin connects him to the leader. There must have been significant Republican sentiment at the time, because why else would he use a coin for such propaganda? I find this rather surprising given Augustus's apparent popularity.

So maybe, just maybe, Rome wasn't as pro-Julio-Claudian as the historians led us to believe.

Roman Coins / Re: Civil War 68/69 CE "Eid Mar"

Well that maybe true...I don't know.

Hands up...I wonder how many Forum AC Roman people evr knew that the famous and much talked about Brutus Eid Mar had this apparent copy by Galba. I didn't and no one has, to me, commented in the Eid Mar Chronicles on this and any other coin sites. How rare are they compared to the common Brutus? What does the experts on Roman Imperial coinage say?  C'mon have some interest!

I was astounded when I saw it but it doesn't seem to shake barely any comment or speculation in the forums.

I know I collect the most hated type of Greek coins, but I thought that this might get a good response

The only thing they are required to do is what they impose upon themselves, there really are no applicable rules or laws. 

I think I see a very very tiny cut on the edge below the upper left prong.

You have to look at the rim (edge) of the coin to see the cuts in person.
Which you can't, as the the coin is encapsuled.
Another reason for not buying coins in coffins.

Thanks for this interesting point of view .... that I share. ;D

Aren't certification houses required to keep photo proof of the "flaws" they advertise and which become invisible due to encapsulation?
