Another rare Titus added today:

It goes nicely with the Securitas dupondius I added last week.  The reverse is often mistaken for the common Pax denarius.

Thanks Joe, means a lot coming from you.

Added another Titus this morning.  A rare tetradrachm from Caesarea Maritima, struck about a week after the destruction of Jerusalem.  It goes nicely with my others from the series:

Incorrectly attributed to RPC 1967 which is a common type.  It is a die match both obverse and reverse to RPC 1969 #5 online.

Added an extremely rare sestertius from 72 CE today.  So rare that RIC doesn't have an image in the plates, only citing one example from the Museo Nazionale Roma.

A lovely portrait of Titus.  Very hard red encrustations remain with some old scratches on the reverse.  I'm very happy to have snatched this one up!

This big hunk of silver arrived today!

Group 1 Tetradrachm from Antioch have a distinctly "Alexandrian" style. The dies either engraved by the Alexandrian mint and shipped to Syria or the coins were struck in Alexandria for Syrian distribution. An interesting series and a nice early portrait of Vespasian.

Received another Titus today.  A very rare Rome mint Quadriga type from 72-73 CE.  Minted in both Antioch and Rome this is the much rarer Rome issue.

The triumphal quadriga denarius didn't get much traction 8)

How about a Judaean Judaea Capta?

A popular type, but this one is a the rarer early denarius lacking the PP on the reverse.  Handsome portrait of Titus too!

This one arrived today.  A rare sestertius of Titus in quadriga during the Judaea Capta triumph.  Only one other in Forum's gallery (Atherton of course  :)) Really nice red/brown patina with a good portrait.  Not nearly as rough in hand.  I'm very pleased with it.  Thanks for looking
