Selge, Pisidia, c. 2nd - 1st Century B.C.

|Pisidia|, |Selge,| |Pisidia,| |c.| |2nd| |-| |1st| |Century| |B.C.||chalkous|
Selge, Pisidia on the southern slope of Mount Taurus where the river Eurymedon (Kprcay) forces its way through the mountains, was once the most powerful and populous city of Pisidia. Protected by precipices, torrents, and an army of 20,000 regarded as worthy kinsmen of the Spartans, Selge was never subject to a foreign power until Rome. In the 5th century A.D., Zosimus calls it a little town, but it was still strong enough to repel a body of Goths. The remains of the city consist mainly of parts of the encircling wall and of the acropolis. A few traces have survived of the gymnasium, the stoa, the stadium and the basilica. There are also the outlines of two temples, but the best-conserved monument is the theater, restored in the 3rd century A.D.

Bohemia, Wladislaus II, 1471 - 1516

|Bohemia|, |Bohemia,| |Wladislaus| |II,| |1471| |-| |1516||heller|
Vladislaus II was King of Bohemia from 1471 to 1516, and King of Hungary and Croatia from 1490 to 1516. After Matthias's death, Vladislaus laid claim to Hungary (his mother was sister of Matthias's predecessor). The Diet of Hungary elected him king after his supporters defeated John Corvinus. Two other claimants, Maximilian of Habsburg and his own brother, John Albert, invaded Hungary, but they failed and made peace. In Bohemia and in Hungary, Vladislaus always approved the decisions of the Royal Council, hence his nickname "Dobzse Lszl," meaning "King Very Well." Due to concessions made before his election, the treasury could not finance a standing army. The Ottomans made regular raids against the southern border and after 1493 even annexed territories in Croatia.

Hoskova p. 163, 596-597; Donebauer 963, VF, weak uneven strike, tight flan, weight .0298 g, maximum diameter 13.0 mm, die axis 0o, Kuttenberg mint, 1471 - 1516; obverse crowned initial W between rings; reverse blank (incuse trace of obverse); ex Manfred Olding-Mnznehdl (Osnabrck, Germany), with a couple old collector tags; $45.00 SALE PRICE $40.50

In Roman religion, every man has a genius, a presiding spirit. In De Die Natali, Censorinus says, from the moment we are born, we live under the guard and tutelage of Genius. Cities, organizations, and peoples also had a genius. On coins, we find inscriptions to the Genius of the Army, of the Senate, of the Roman People, etc. The legend GENIO AVGVSTI dedicates this coin to the Genius of the Augusti, the Emperors.

Syllaeus was chief minister for Obodas III and he briefly shared rule of Nabataea with Aretas IV after Obodas death. But Syllaeus had a powerful enemy. In 24 B.C. Syllaeus had betrayed Rome causing almost the complete destruction of an army sent into Arabia Felix. Syllaeus was twice called to the court at Rome, where in 6 B.C. he was convicted of treason and Obodas' murder. He was beheaded and his body was pitched from the Tarpeian Rock.

An inscription identifies Rabbel as the son of Malichus, who was the son of Aretas; it also identifies Gamilat and Hagaru as daughters of Malichus, thus sisters of Rabbel.

At the beginning of the 16th century nearly 20,000 Sephardic Jews immigrated to Greece from Spain following their expulsion. By 1519, 15,715 Jews lived in Thessaloniki, 54% of the population. After the Great Thessaloniki Fire of 1917 left 72,000 people homeless, unable to stay and survive, nearly half of the Jewish population emigrated to France, the United States and Palestine. On April 22, 1941, Thessaloniki fell to Nazi Germany. 50,000 Jews, 95% of the Jewish population, were sent to concentration camps where most were murdered in the gas chambers. Another 11,000 Jews were sent to forced labor camps, where most also perished. Only 1200 Jews live in the city today.

Tiberius, 19 August 14 - 16 March 37 A.D., Dionysopolis, Phrygia

|Other| |Phrygia|, |Tiberius,| |19| |August| |14| |-| |16| |March| |37| |A.D.,| |Dionysopolis,| |Phrygia||AE| |17|
Dionysiopolis (or Dionysopolis) in Phrygia is mentioned in a letter of M. Cicero to his brother Quintus, in which he speaks of the people of Dionysopolis being very hostile to Quintus, which must have been for something that Quintus did during his praetorship of Asia. Pliny places the Dionysopolitae in the conventus of Apamea, which is all the ancient writers note of their position. We may infer from the coinage that the place was on the Maeander, or near it. Stephanus of Byzantium says that it was founded by Attalus and Eumenes. Stephanus mentions another Dionysopolis in Pontus, originally called Cruni, and he quotes two verses of Scymnus about it; however, he likely meant the town of Dionysopolis in Thrace, on the Pontus, rather than in Pontus. Dionysiopolis was important enough in the late Roman province of Phrygia Pacatiana to become a bishopric, suffragan of its Metropolitan Archbishopric Hierapolis in Phrygia, but was to fade. Its site is tentatively located near modern Bekilli, Turkey.
