ANTIQUITIES, ROMAN, Bronze Fibula, c.A.D.200 - 250.159 viewsRoman Bronze Fibula, c.3rd century A.D.
A nice bronze fibula with what seems to be the original pin.
This is an early version of the Crossbow Fibula. It is hard to be sure of the exact type without seeing the head in more detail. It looks like it is hinged which makes it a "short-arm T-shaped" variant, but the tall narrow bow looks more like a type usually found with a spring instead. Overall dates to circa AD 200-250 and I would guess Pannonian area.
It is very interesting because on the other side there is a slot to insert the pin, something I haven't seen on a fibula like it is on mine.

This coin is overstruck on a debased non-Byzantine denier of some sort, which I'm trying to identify (if you can identify it, please let me know!). On the obverse, directly over the star is an "O." To the left of the O is an indistinct letter, and to the left of that is a cross. The reverse looks like a heraldic shield with some lettering around it, indistinct except for a dot followed by an "A" at the top.

(Bendall's book "A Private Collection of Late Palaeologan Coins" states that this type was possibly struck by John V in 1341/1342, before the Zealots seized Thessalonica. These crude little coins, with their military saint and submissive emperor, reflect the mixture of desperation and faith which must have pervaded the empire in its final years.)

This coin has been very neatly clipped, in contrast to the crudely clipped Latin trachea that are quite common. Its size is 17 mm. According to DO Vol IV, some trachea of John II through Alexius III were officially clipped in Constantinople between 1195 and 1204 to reduce their bullion value to their actual face value. This practice apparently ended with the Latin conquest in 1204.

Coins of this type are pictured in DO VOl IV Plate LIII, 13d.22 and 13f.38.

BYZANTINE, Manuel I, 1143 - 1180, AV Hyperpyron, Sear 155657 viewsA brave general but even more skillful diplomat and statesman. Impregnated with the idea of a universal Empire with passion for theological debate he was also perhaps the only chivalrous Emperor-Knight of Byzantine. He is a representitive of a new kind of Byzantine rulers that were influenced by the contact with the western crusaders. The customs kept in his court were not inspired by the traditional Byzantine opulence. He loved western customs and arranged jousting matches, even participating in them, an unusual and discomforting sight for the Byzantines.

Having distinguished himself in his father's war against the Seljuk Turks, he was nominated emperor in preference to his elder surviving brother. Endowed with a fine physique and great personal courage, he devoted himself whole-heartedly to a military career. He endeavoured to restore by force of arms the predominance of the Byzantine Empire in the Mediterranean countries, and so was involved in conflict with his neighbours on all sides.

[edit]
Second Crusade
In 1144 he brought back Raymond of Antioch to his allegiance, and in the following year drove the Seljuk Turks out of Isauria. In 1147 he granted a passage through his dominions to two armies of the Second Crusade under Conrad III of Germany and Louis VII of France; but the numerous outbreaks of overt or secret hostility between the Franks and the Greeks on their line of march, for which both sides were to blame, nearly precipitated a conflict between Manuel and his guests.

"Maurice Tiberius
August 13, 582 through November 22, 602.
Maurice Tiberius was an excellant military officer and was responsible for the curbing the Persians during the end of Justin II's reign. And during his reign he used diplomatic means to bring peace with the Persians. The western part of the empire saw a reuniting of control over much of Italy, Sicily and North Africa, but the Balkans proved to be his downfall. Due to losses of territory and prestige in the Balkan peninsula, a military revolt occurred with Phocas taking over as emperor. Maurice Tiberius and his two sons fled Constantinople, only to be slain a month or so later"

Spaer 1108.
Note: "Younger son of Antiochos the Great, Antiochos IV seized the Seleukid throne in 175 B.C. after having spent the previous twelve years as a hostage in Rome. He was a vigorous ruler and attempted to extend Seleukid influence by invading Egypt, though he was obliged to withdraw because of Roman opposition. He also aroused the hatred of the Jews by despoiling the Temple in Jerusalem and later tearing down the city walls. Antiochos died on campaign in the east in 164 B.C." - David R.

Elea was the ancient name of the town of Velia. According to Herodotus, in 545 B.C. a group of Ionian Greeks fled Phokaia in modern Turkey, after it was besieged by the Persians. They settled in Corsica until they were attacked by a force of Etruscans and Carthaginians. The surviving 6000 took to the sea once more before finally settling on the coast of Italy and founding the town of Hyele, later to be renamed Ele, and then, eventually, Elea.

"Herakles was travelling by sea when Hera, who hated him, sent a storm, sinking his boats. Hercules and only a few friends survived, swimming to Kos. Once ashore they asked a shepherd for food and shelter. The shepherd refused and insulted Hercules and they fought. People from nearby Antimachia joined the fight against Hercules. Hercules and his friends slipped into a house, disguised as women, and escaped. Another town welcomed Hercules and declared war on Antimachia. Hercules killed the king of Antimachia and married the newly elected king's sister, Halkiopi. Their son, Thessalos, would later be the king of Kos and Nisyros."

literature. The coin was found in a hoard, in 2009, not far from his native city. Most likely the treasure was laid during the invasion of the region diadoch Perdiccas, who undertook to conquer Eumenes this region. This coin, which was probably minted for the city's defense, is very similar to the referenced coins. City Laranda was destroyed in 322 BC The obverse of the coin depicts the Baal or Melkart - deity who later the Romans identified with Heracles. Wolf on the reverse is likely to relate to the cult of Apollo Likeys (gr. likos = wolf) - one of the most ancient of worship among the Greeks. This cult was especially popular in southern Asia Minor - in Lycia, Cilicia, etc. Very names of these regions contain the root of "wolf" and speak for themselves. A curious technology that was used for coinage coins: blanks are rectangular in shape and have sharp edges. It is very likely that their cut from sheet metal. Maybe that's why all the coins of this type are surprisingly accurate weight - 0.45 grams.

Comment: Unfortunately, my meagre library does not allow a decent attribution, but I assume that, based on the crossed ankles for Zeus and the monogram added beneath the throne, this coin is perhaps not a lifetime issue.

Ptolemy Apion was a son of Ptolemy VIII, perhaps by an Egyptian concubine. This makes him a half-brother of Ptolemy IX and X. Ptolemy Apion died in 96 B.C., without an heir, leaving his kingdom to the Roman Republic. According to Butrey, Apion's coinage was nothing but very small change, with a peak about 1.3 grams. Buttrey notes, "the Greek coinage of Cyrenaica, of glorious tradition, ended in the lamentable small bronzes of Apion."

Rev- No Legend,Radiate draped bust of Sol facing,head left
Size-13mm | Weight-1.17 grams | Date-2nd/3rd Century
Munich SNG 519. Krzyzanowska, Le monnayage de Palmyre, Actes you 9e Congrès Internationally de Numismatique in 1979 à Berne (1982), 448, fig.1/IV.

*Atargatis is described as wearing a Mauerkrone-Literally mural crown, but you could also use the term turreted.The significance of this headgear is that it represents a convenant bond between Goddess and city.
In The book "Aufstieg und Niedergang der römischen Welt: Von den Anfängen Roms bis zum Ausgang der Republik" by Hildegard Temporini, Joseph Vogt and Wolfgang Haase the authors describe the covenant bond between The goddess Artemis and the city of Epheus as such- A technique of sculptural iconography employed to emphasize this concept of covenant between the goddess and the city was that of a mural crown and sanctuary headdress placed upon the head of Artemis. The use of these motifs in ancient artistic symbolism was frequent .In the case of Epheus,the mural crown depicted the goddess' protection of the cities fortifications and thereby it's general welfare.This is the same kind of relationship as Atargatis shared with Palmyra.

Ex Incitatus Coins

Aspendos was a Greek colony and strategic port and naval base in Persian territory, on the river Eurymedon in Pamphylia. Starting c. 460 B.C., Aspendos struck large numbers of coins on the Persian weight standard, widely used in western Asia Minor.

Beginning about 400 B.C. Aspendos issued a new series of staters, which were struck to the end of the fourth century. These depict wrestlers on the obverse and a slinger on the reverse. The types are unusual for their detailed depiction of full-length bodies in active athletic poses. It has been suggested that the slinger was chosen for the similarity of the Greek word for sling, sphendone, to the name of the town. In the right field of the reverse is the city's badge, the triskeles, three human legs connected in a wheel-like formation, which had occupied a more prominent position on the obverse of earlier Aspendian coins.

ΣTAΣIΩN

"Of Stasion"

The island nation of Rhodes, just off the Turkish mainland was a highly successful commercial centre in antiquity. The Island also boasted one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Colossus of Rhodes. The Colossus was a monstrous statue, standing over 98 feet tall, that stood at the entrance to the city's harbour and depicted the island's patron god, Helios.

The widely traded coinage of Rhodes also proudly displayed the image of their god on the obverse. While the reverse employs a visual pun on the City name, as the Greek word for Rose is Rhodon.

poseidon_ieronos.jpg
GREEK, Sicily, Syracuse, Hieron II32 viewsHieron II, (also spelled Hiero) was king of Syracuse, Sicily, from about 270 to 216/215 B.C. He struggled against the Mamertines who were mercenaries of Italian origin who had originally been hired from their home in Campania by Agathocles (361 – 289 BC), self-proclaimed King of Sicily. After the Mamertines called in the aid of Rome Hieron joined the Punic leader Hanno, who had recently landed in Sicily, and fought an inconclusive battle with the Romans after which he withdrew to Syracuse. In 263 Hieron concluded a treaty with Rome and from this time until his death in 215 B.C. he remained loyal to the Romans, and frequently assisted them with men and provisions during the Punic war.Franz-Josef M
