Potamikon Collection


My favorite type of Greek coinage. For some reason the image of a man-faced bull strikes me. Perhaps it's in my blood.

See my publication (co-authored by Nicola Sisci), for more information on this iconography:

Nicholas Molinari and Nicola Sisci, Potamikon: Sinews of Acheloios. A Comprehensive Catalog of the Bronze Coinage of the Man-Faced Bull, with Essays on Origin and Identity (Oxford: Archaeopress, 2016). ISBN 978-1-78491-409-7 (hardback).

Roman: Imperial and Provincial Coinage


A scattering of Roman Imperial and Provincial coinage. Some I acquired when I first started collecting. My favorite is the AE Follis of Diocletian, the image used for the album cover.

Byzantine: Misc. Bronze


Almost entirely from the same lot. The photos do not do the thick green patinas justice. Some very nice examples.

Greek: Syrian Bronze (Royal Seleukid Issues)


Royal Seleukid issues from Seleukos I to Antiochos XII, although I'm trying to fill in the gaps. Most have beautiful desert patinas, which originally perked my interest.

Anti-Semitic Notgeld


These are really unbelievable. I am not an anti-Semite, I picked them up for a lesson on pre-Nazi anti-Semitism. The one I find most outrageous is the "Jew hanging from tree" type. Ask yourself, how could people actually use this as money?
