Hi folks,

I finally finished my second website update. I re-uploaded all 270 pages to Joe's server.

I started this update on 7/23. It took me 27 days and close to 200 hours of work.

In the past 6-8 weeks, I did 2 website updates. Those 2 updates, combined, consumed 39 days and about 250-300 hours of my time.

All total, I had to re-write 58 new tags from scratch. That's just during my second update alone.

Anyway, please feel free to take a look at my updated pages. As always, if anyone notices any errors, then please let me know. Also, as always, if anyone has any suggestions, then please let me be aware of them.

Hi folks,

I finally finished posting my Roman Provincial coins, all 9 boxes of them. It took me a long time.

I think I am going to post my Greek coins next. I have 4 boxes of them.

Look forward to seeing the rest of you Greek coins, do you own any Phoenician coins ?

Hi MR,

Thanks for the interest.

Yes, I own several Phoenician coins.

Hi MR,

I just remembered that I have an interesting AE Seleucid coin minted in Phoenicia, Byblos. A winged Kronos is depicted on the reverse. It was issued by one of the Antiochus kings. I purchased it because the dealer mis-attributed it as Augustus. I was somewhat disappointed when, many years later, I discovered that it isn't an Augustus coin. But it is still an extremely rare (R3) and interesting coin.

I have never seen those for sale, do you have the coin with Alexander I Balas or Antiochos IV ?

I must confess to being slightly envious.

Hi MR,

I don't have access to that coin right now because it is put away in storage. I am not up to my Phoenicia or Seleucid coins yet. My Greek Phoenicia and Seleucid coins are in a different box. Right now, I only have access to my first Greek box. I am doing one box at a time.

Offhand, from memory, I think it is Antiochus IV. I remember the obverse portrait having a radiate head, which is one of the things that tipped me off that it wasn't Augustus, who is laureate on that issue. That is why I suspected that the dealer mis-attributed it. I did some research and determined that it isn't Augustus and that it is, in fact, a Seleucid coin minted in Phoenicia, Byblos.

There is a wedge-shaped (or triangle-shaped) piece broken off the flan. About 15-20% of the flan is missing. But it doesn't affect any of the devices. Fortunately, the missing part is the fields.

I'll be posting the photos in my website soon, probably within the next few months.
