Hristova & Jekov, Markianopolis Addenda II
« on: December 12, 2010, 07:50:29 am »
Hi!

The 2nd edition of Hristova/Jekov's Marcianopolis is on the way. But the flow of new coins doesn't stop. So to avoid confusions I open a new thread for the newly found coins. The HrJ-numbers are referring to the 1st edition!

Here are the first ones:

A new die combination and a rev. variant

AE 26, 11.5g
struck under Antonius Seleucus
obv. AVT KM AVR ANTWNEINOC AVG IOVLIA COVAIMIC

Because there is no pic of No. 6.27.6.2 it is well possible that it is this very coin.

A correction

HrJ No. 6.27.10.1 is not Elagabal & Julia Soaemias but actually Elagabal & Julia Maesa. The depicted coin is so worn that the legend is not readable. But the lady wears a stephane and Soaemias is only known without.

Dear Jochen, Before this list gets any longer, may I ask a question that has been bothering me in the other lists?
Here, as in "ex NumismatikLanz", it seems to mean as in ex Handel, as distinct from im Handel; so also, for ex., ex Burstein means formerly in the Burstein, Nevada collection.
On the other hand, I have assumed that "ex Hoeft" means in your own collection, as your bookplate says "ex libris", or "one of the collection of".
Either meaning is permissible in Latin, of course.  In catalogues of coins, however, the first meaning, formerly is usual.  If you write, however, once John Quincy Adams (our coin collecting president), it means that the specimen is known to have been one of his, but its present location may not be known, unless your write, e.g., Name of Museum, once JQA, whereas when we see in a list "ex BCD", we mean that the coin is in one of the catalogues of his collection, and "ex Lindgren" means either in one of his three volumes or in one of the Lindgren lists that disposed of those that were not.
I noticed Patchev, whom I know as the distributor of Marcianopolis I, with "ex" preceding his name.  I never heard of a Bulgarian academic who was also a dealer.

Dear Pat!

You are right. I have used the term 'ex' in two different ways. If I have written 'ex coll. ABC' it should mean that this coin is 'in' the collection of ABC, at least in the moment I have posted it. If I have written 'ex ABC' without 'coll.' I mean that I have the pic from a seller, in whose possession the coin is - at least I hope so - who offers this coin on a platform.

Do you have a recommendation to differentiate between these two sources?

Best regards!
