I agree. Nice coin Steve, sorry you had to see it go.

I think the rider and generally any muscular male featured on an ancient coin has taken steroids.
At least that is what I tell myself to feel better...

Again, a shame you needed to sell them Steve, but pleasing that many appear to have landed in good hands - mine included.

Ditto.  That Crawford 14 Aes Grave Sextans (Shell/Caduceus) is on its way to me and will soon be rejoining its former companion, the Wolf and Twins Series AE As, under my custodianship.
