The Maxwell Hunt Collection

Maxwell Edward Hunt of Loudon, Tennessee, passed away 27 Aug 2008, at the age of 85. Max was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran of WW II and active in the Covenant Baptist Church. A former resident of Detroit, Michigan, he retired from RCA Service Company in 1984 and moved to Tennessee in 1988. Max was an avid genealogist and a member of the Society of Mayflower Descendants, a sponsor of the Plimoth Plantation and a member of the Clan MacRae Society of North America. Reflecting his faith, the Maxwell Hunt Collection includes many Biblical related coins.

Amphipolis, Macedonia, c. 148 - 31 B.C.

|Amphipolis|, |Amphipolis,| |Macedonia,| |c.| |148| |-| |31| |B.C.|, |tetrachalkon|
Excavations of Roman Amphipolis have revealed traces of all the impressive architecture one would expect from a thriving Roman city. A bridge, gymnasium, public and private monuments, sanctuaries, and cemeteries all attest to the city's prosperity. From the early Christian period (after 500 CE) there are traces of four basilicas, a large rectangular building which may have been a bishop's residence, and a church. --

Gallienus, August 253 - September 268 A.D.

|Gallienus|, |Gallienus,| |August| |253| |-| |September| |268| |A.D.|, |sestertius|
Virtus is the personification of valor and courage. Valor was, of course, essential for the success of a Roman emperor and Virtus was one of the embodiments of virtues that were part of the Imperial cult. During his joint reign with his father, Gallienus proved his courage in battle; but his failure to liberate his father from Persian captivity was perceived as cowardice and a disgrace to the Emperor and Empire. It was not, however, actually fear that prevented a rescue. While others mourned Valerian's fate, Gallienus rejoiced in his new sovereignty.
