Isis

Isis was an ancient Egyptian goddess of motherhood, magic, nature and fertility, worshiped as the ideal wife and mother. She was the friend of slaves, sinners, artisans, and the downtrodden, and she listened to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats, and rulers. Worship of Isis spread throughout the Greco-Roman world, continuing until the suppression of paganism in the Christian era.

Click for a larger photo
Otho ruled for just a few months. The mint of Alexandria struck coins with his name, though the portrait bears little resemblance to those of the other mints. It is possible that Alexandria produced coins without having an image of the new emperor.

Click for a larger photo
Galba was governor of Hispania Tarraconensis when he was proclaimed emperor by his troops. The Senate recognized his authority in Jul 68. His avarice, ruthlessness, and refusal to pay a promised donative to the praetorian guards made him unpopular. He was assassinated in a conspiracy plotted by Otho.

Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt, Ptolemy XII Neos Dionysos, 80 - 58 B.C. and 55 - 51 B.C.

Click for a larger photo
Ptolemy XII was a weak and unpopular ruler. He was awarded the belittling title Auletes - the flute player. Deposed by his own subjects in 58 B.C., he regained his throne with Roman assistance. His daughter, the famous Cleopatra VII, was the last Ptolemaic ruler of Egypt. Minted under Roman supervision. In about 58 BC, the tetradrachms of Ptolemy XII underwent a substantial debasement. From a standard of c. 90% silver, coins were struck with debased silver. Hazzard firmly notes 33%, although RPC suggests 40-45% is the correct value. Specific gravity analysis confirm that Hazzard's figure is correct.
SH19875.

Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt, Cleopatra VII with Ptolemy XV, 35 - 34 B.C.

Click for a larger photo
The hair style on this coin is rare. Mrkholm breaks the Cleopatra tetradrachms into classes based on hairstyle (ANSMN 20, 1975). A VF Year Three example described as 'Unikum' and 35/34 B.C. with this hair-style sold for $1400 in a Lanz sale. This coin is dated Year 17, though if one accepts the logic of Lanz quoting Mrkholm, this coin is the Cleopatra VII from the equivalant year to the Lanz example, 35/34 B.C.
SH28200. Silver tetradrachm, Svoronos 1831, VF, weight 12.236 g, maximum diameter 24.7 mm, die axis 0o, Paphos mint, 35 - 34 B.C.; obverse diademed head right, wearing aegis; reverse ΠTOΛEMAIOY BAΣIΛEΩΣ, eagle standing left on thunderbolt, wings closed, date LIΞ (year 17) and crown of Isis left, ΠA right; flan flaws and porosity; SOLD
