AUCTION TERMS This is an internet and mail bid sale with an automated electronic close, conducted by Classical Numismatic Group, Inc. (CNG). Bidding in the auction constitutes acceptance of the following terms: 1. The property listed in this catalogue is offered for sale by CNG for itself and as agent for various owners and other consignors. We reserve the right to reject any bid, to determine the opening price, to set bidding increments, to vary the order of the auction, to reopen bidding in the case of a dispute, to withdraw any lot, to bid on behalf of CNG, to bid on behalf of the consignor, and to permit the consignor to bid on his own lots. CNG may loan or advance money to consignors or prospective bidders, and may have an interest other than commission charges in any lot. CNG may bid on its own account as an “insider” with information not available to the public. 2. Lots will be sold in the order listed in the catalogue. The first lot will close electronically at www.cngcoins.com at 8AM Eastern Time on the sale date, with subsequent lots closing every 20 seconds thereafter. All written, fax, email and phone bids must be received by 5PM Eastern Time, on the day prior to the sale date. Electronic bids may be placed by approved bidders up until the closing time of each lot. The electronic clock on the website represents the official closing time for each lot. Bidders intending to bid electronically must first register at www.cngcoins.com. New website registrations are processed for approval Monday through Friday 9AM-5PM Eastern Time only. No new registrations will be approved on the sale date. 3. A 20% Buyer’s Fee will be added to the hammer price of all successful written, fax, email and phone bids. A 17.5% Buyer’s Fee will be added to the hammer price of all successful electronic bids directly placed on www. cngcoins.com. 4. All coins are guaranteed genuine. Attribution, date, condition and other descriptions are the opinion of the cataloguer, and no warranty is expressed or implied. Please note that an auction sale is not an approval sale. Lots examined prior to the sale and lots purchased by floor bidders (including bidders executing commission bids on behalf of other parties) may not be returned for any reason except lack of authenticity. All claims of misdescription and all claims of return, except claims regarding authenticity, must be made within 5 days of receipt of material. Any claim of lack of authenticity must be made in writing by the original purchaser immediately after discovery that an item is not authentic, and upon making such a claim the original purchaser must immediately return the lot to CNG in the same condition as at the time of the auction. Coins that have been encapsulated (“slabbed”) by a grading and/or authentication service may not be returned for any reason, including authenticity, if they have been removed from the encapsulation (“slab”). If payment is made by credit card, rights of return are governed by these Auction Terms which supercede any rights of return promulgated by the card issuer. Estimates are intended as a guide only and not as a statement of opinion of value. 5. Invoices are due and payable immediately upon receipt. Interest and late fees of 2.0% per month, or at the highest rate permitted by law, whichever is less, from the date of the auction, shall be payable on invoices not settled within 30 days of the auction date. Payment may be made by check or bank wire. Credit cards (Visa or MasterCard) will be accepted; credit card payments will not be accepted more than 14 days after the sale date. Payment by check must be made in either US dollars ($) drawn on a US bank or British sterling (£) drawn on a British bank. All successful bidders outside North America and the United Kingdom will be charged an additional $20 fee for bank charges that are the result of international wire transfer fees; this fee will be deducted for credit card or check payment as described above. CNG may reduce or compromise any charge or fee at its discretion. 6. Bidders not known to us must provide satisfactory credit references or pay a deposit as determined at CNG’s discretion before bidding. Minors are not permitted to bid without written consent of a parent guaranteeing payment. CNG may require payment in full from any bidder prior to delivery of lots. Title does not pass until lots are paid in full. Upon receipt of lots, the buyer assumes full responsibility for loss or damage. Delivery to the buyer’s address of record shall constitute receipt by the buyer regardless of the identity of the person accepting delivery.

7. Estimates are in U.S. dollars ($) and bids must be made in even dollar ($) amounts. The CNG website, www.cngcoins.com, will execute electronic bids on behalf of all electronic bidders. Subject to reserves and opening prices, all electronic bids will be executed by the electronic software at one bidding increment (approximately 10%) over the next highest bid. All written, fax, email and phone bids received before 5PM the day prior to the sale date will be uploaded to the CNG website no later than the day prior to the sale date. These bids will not be subject to the minimum required bid cited on the website at the time of the upload. Any written, fax, email and phone bids received after the deadline or with special instructions will be executed at CNG’s complete discretion and will be subject to the next bid required by the website. In the case of identical written, fax, email and phone bids, the earliest bid received wins. An electronic bid has priority over any identical written, fax, email or phone bid. Bid by lot number. No lot will be broken. Bidders are responsible for errors in bidding. Check your bids carefully. Electronic bidders may check their bids under User Services at www.cngcoins.com. 8. A word on Reserves. CNG may place a reserve on any lot. However, no reserve will be higher than the estimate, and ordinarily lots are reserved at 60% of estimate. 9. Bidders personally guarantee payment for their successful bids, including bidders executing commission bids from other parties and bidders representing corporations or other entities. Buyers accepting commission bids from other parties do so at their own risk and remain responsible for payment under these Auction Terms. 10. In the event a successful bidder fails to make full payment within 30 days of the auction date, CNG reserves the right to deem the sale incomplete and to resell the material, and the bidder agrees to pay for the reasonable cost of such a sale and also to pay any difference between the resale price and the previously successful bid. CNG reserves all rights that it is entitled to under the Pennsylvania Uniform Commercial Code, including the right to offset any sums due from a successful bidder against any future consignment or purchase or monies or goods in possession of CNG. 11. Sales tax, postage, handling and insurance are the responsibility of the buyer and are added to all invoices where appropriate. For buyers in the European Union, CNG may import lots into the United Kingdom prior to shipment and charge buyers the import Value Added Tax. On any tax not paid by the purchaser which should have been paid, even if not invoiced by CNG, the purchaser agrees to pay the same on demand together with any interest or penalty that may be assessed. It is the responsibility of the buyer to comply with foreign customs and other regulations. 12. Prices realized are published and are mailed with CNG’s next publication. Prices realized are posted at www.cngcoins.com and successful electronic bidders are notified by email after the last lot of the sale closes. 13. Bidders hereby waive any claim for incidental, consequential or exemplary damages arising from this auction. The sole remedy that any participant in the auction shall have for any claim or controversy arising out of the auction shall be a refund, without interest, of all or part of the purchase price paid by the participant. 14. All rights granted by CNG or otherwise available to bidders and purchasers, under these Auction Terms or otherwise, are personal and may not be assigned or transferred to any other person or entity, whether by operation of law or otherwise. No third party may rely on any benefit or right conferred by these Auction Terms. Bidders acting as agents must disclose the agency in writing to CNG prior to the auction; otherwise rights are limited to the agent and are not transferable to the undisclosed principal. 15. Any dispute regarding this auction shall be governed by the laws of Pennsylvania and shall be adjudicated only by the Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas or the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania; all bidders submit themselves to the personal jurisdiction of these courts for this purpose, consent to service of process by registered or certified mail, and waive any contrary provisions of Articles 14 or 15 of the French Civil Code and any similar provisions in any jurisdiction. All bidders consent to the confidentiality of consignors’ identities and waive any right to require disclosure of the name of the consignor or owner of any auction lot, whether such right is based on New York GOL §5-701(a) or any other provision in any jurisdiction. In any dispute regarding this auction, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable costs and attorney fees.

All written, fax, email and phone bids must be received by 5PM (ET) May 21, 2013. The Electronic Close starts at 8AM ET on May 22, 2013. Lots close every 20 seconds.

($1500) This issue belongs to a group of late staters that all share similar qualities, such as Nike crowning Athena rather than the royal name, and have a somewhat “coarseâ€? style (cf. CallataĂż pl. 38, J-M). Although CallataĂż agrees with Seyrig’s dating of circa 150 for this group, Marinescu sees them as related to the Mithradatic period, and places them contemporary to Callataÿ’s period 2B (which is also why these are not included in his dissertation, which ends with the Mithradatic period). This lower dating is based on recently published examples that have an obverse portrait style that has the features of Mithradates VI (cf.

Extremely rare, one of two known (the other in the BM). ($7500) Ex Stack’s (17 Sept. 1980), lot 60. The attribution of this coin to Ephesos is based upon the appearance of the A control on the throne on various Ephesos drachm issues (cf. Thompson 173–4), the obverses of which also have a remarkably similar style to this stater. M.J. Price also thought this stater issue was related to these Ephesian drachms (see N. Sicurella, op cit., SAN Journal XIV/2). There is a possibility that there also was an issue of drachms with only the A control mark--such a piece is described as no. 402 in the collection of AbbĂŠ J.-G.-HonorĂŠ Greppo, vicar-general of the diocese of Belley (J. de Witte, Description des mĂŠdailles et des antiquitĂŠs du cabinet de M. L’AbbĂŠ H. G*** [Paris: Franck, 1856]). Unfortunately, the piece is not illustrated in the publication of the collection, and its present disposition is unknown. Perhaps the most unusual aspect of these staters is the orientation of the legends, which is unique to this issue: the royal title is on the left, and the name of Lysimachos is on the right.

Although some place this issue in the late 6th century, there are no coins of this type in any hoard recorded before the mid-4th century. In fact, only two 4th century hoards record coins of Tenedos: Troas, 1969 (IGCH 1188), deposited c. 450 BC, and Massyaf, 1961 (IGCH 1483 = CH 8, 587 = CH 9, 362), deposited c. 425-420 BC. The former contained two coins of Tenedos, but further information was not recorded.

($300) The style of the obverse of this type has a resemblance to similar hemihektes of Miletos (cf. SNG Kayhan 444â&#x20AC;&#x201C;8), but the attribution of those pieces is based on their incuses, all of which have geometric shapes or pellets similar to the staters that are conclusively proven to have been from Miletos (cf. SNG Kayhan 440â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1). Further study, however, may eventually prove the attribution of these plain-incuse issues to Miletos as well.

Zabel and A.R. Meadows (CH,;SS² UHYHDOHGWKUHHJURXSVRILVVXHVWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWWZR of which included magistrate names and an additional symbol on the reverse, while the last group only had magistrate names. Kallikles is known to have struck hemidrachms in two issues, one with a cornucopia symbol, and one with no additional symbol. Of the former, there are approximately 13 coins known, all from a hoard in 1985 (CH VIII, 481). His second issue, without symbol, is apparently known only from a single specimen in a hoard found in 1987 (CH VIII, 495), which was struck from the same reverse die as the present coin (please note that Table 2 in the Zabel and Meadows article erroneously list this coin as having the cornucopia symbol).

($200) For an obol of Mithrapata with the same obverse type and style, cf. Klein 606 and BMC Lycia 8. While the similarity of the obverse of this type to the Mithrapata issue suggests an attribution to that dynast, all of his coins bear at least a portion of his name, and there are no letters on this coin. As types tend to be transferred from dynast to dynast, it is possible that this issue is from a contemporary of Mithrapata. The sea serpent, though, is not present on any published specimen of a Lycian dynast, which suggests that these coins may not be from the dynastsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; series at all.

449. CILICIA, Mallos. Tiribazos. Satrap of Lydia, 388-380 BC. AR Stater (20mm, 10.17 g, 12h). Struck circa 390/87387/6 BC. Head of Aphrodite right / Head right, wearing satrapal headdress.

450. CILICIA, Mallos(?). 4th century BC. AR Obol (10mm, 0.73 g, 4h). Lion standing right, feeding / Swan standing right; uncertain letter or symbol above, grain ear to right. Unpublished, but cf. SNG Levante 163 (for similar rev. type, but with different symbol). EF, lightly toned. Apparently unique. ($500) From the Kelly J. Krizan, M.D. Collection. Although the obverse type appears to be unknown, the style of the lion is nearly identical to the lion attacking a stag on the reverse of SNG France 426, an obol of Myriandros. As the swan is a type uniquely belonging to Mallos, and the general reverse type, but with different symbol, is known, it is likely that an attribution to Mallos is correct.

Previous authors have noted the denomination of this rare issue as 1/5th tetradrachm or 1/5th stater, based on the Macedonian standard used from Archelaos through Philip II. However, the weights of the two published pieces, 3.19 g and 2.79 g, do not comport well with this idea. The fact that this type is only known in the far eastern mint of Babylon also makes such a weight standard doubtful. Unfortunately, the weights of these two pieces also do not comport well with the local Babylonian standard. Until more pieces come to light, their exact standard and denomination remains unknown.

($75,000) Ex Numismatica Ars Classica 64 (17 May 2012), lot 849. This oktadrachm was apparently an ad-hoc issue, as it was struck with an obverse die that was used to strike tetradrachms in an issue given to Uncertain Mint 68 in Mesopotamia in SC (cf. illustration of SC 1132.3b). The dating of the issue is based on the portrait style, which the authors of SC date circa 197-192/0 BC. The appearance of this oktradrachm suggests that this mint had a place of some importance, but the WLPHIUDPHRIWKHLVVXHLVVRPHZKDWHQLJPDWLFDV$QWLRFKRVZDVSULPDULO\LQYROYHGLQFRQĂ LFWDJDLQVWWKH3WROHPLHVLQ$VLD0LQRU,WLV uncertain whether this issue suggests some as yet unknown event to the east, but previously known issues of oktadrachms of Antiochos III have been linked to various military victories.

Mazakes as Satrap of Mesopotamia

597. PERSIA, Alexandrine Empire. Mazakes. Satrap of Mesopotamia, 331-323/2 BC. AR Tetradrachm (20mm, 16.91 g, 9h). Imitating Athens. Helmeted head of Athena right / Owl standing right, head facing; olive spray and crescent to left, " (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mazakes symbolâ&#x20AC;?) and ./0123 (Armaic MZDK) to right. Le Rider, Alexander, pp. 214-9; Van Alfen, Owls, Group IIIa, 79 (same obv. die); Nicolet-Pierre, Monnaies, pl. 26, b-c. VF, toned, reverse a little off center. Rare without test cut. ($1000) Mazakes is best known as the Persian satrap who took over Egypt after Sabakes fell in battle against Alexander the Greatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s army at the Granicus, and later handed over the province peacefully to the Macedonian king. Imitative owls in the name of Mazakes have been known for some time, and all were originally attributed to his satrapy in Egypt. However, it was clear that stylistic elements separated the coinage into two general groups. More recent hoards, especially the 1973 Iraq hoard, have shown that one of the groups of imitative owls was certainly not struck in Egypt, but somewhere in the territory of modern day Iraq. In his analysis of the 1973 hoard, M. Price (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Circulation at Babylon in 323 B.C.â&#x20AC;? in W.E. Metcalf, ed., Mnemata: Papers in Memory of Nancy M. Waggoner>1HZ<RUN@SS² FKDQJHGWKHĂ&#x20AC;QGVSRW IURP,UDTWRWKHPRUHVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FFLWHRI%DE\ORQEDVHGRQDQHFGRWDOHYLGHQFH S DQGJDYHWKHVHULHVRI0D]DNHV¡RZOVWRWKHFLW\+RZHYHU such an assignment has forced numismatists to conduct mental gymnastics in order to rationalize the presence of Mazakesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; coins at Babylon (cf. Van Alfen, Owls, pp. 27â&#x20AC;&#x201C;33, and Le Rider, Alexander, pp. 215â&#x20AC;&#x201C;7, for a summary of the previous research). It is clear that the attribution RIWKHRZOVWR%DE\ORQLVDOPRVWFHUWDLQO\LQFRUUHFWDQGRWKHUĂ&#x20AC;QGHYLGHQFHVXJJHVWVDQDWWULEXWLRQWRVRPHZKHUHIXUWKHUQRUWKSHUKDSVLQ WKHVDWUDS\RI0HVRSRWDPLD FI/H5LGHURSFLWS² ,QDQ\HYHQWWKLVFRLQDJHFODULĂ&#x20AC;HVWKHKLVWRULFDOUHFRUGUHJDUGLQJWKHGLVSRVLWLRQ of Mazakes following his hand-over of Egypt, upon which subject the literary evidence is silent. As noted by Le Rider (op. cit., p. 215), one can compare Mazakes to other Persians who peacefully welcomed Alexander to their domains: Mazaios, who handed over Cilicia, was later made satrap in Babylon, and Mithrenes, who surrendered Sardes, was made satrap in Armenia. Also, the Persian noble Amminapes, who met Alexander in Egypt with Mazakes, was later made satrap of Parthia and Hyrkania. Thus, one would expect Mazakes to receive similarly favorable treatment, appointment to some position of authority. Interestingly, Mesopotamia is the only satrapy that is not addressed in the literary evidence when Alexander is organizing his eastern territories. As these tetradrachms of Mazakes are found in that region, and date to the period after Alexanderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conquest, it is reasonable to suggest that Mazakes may have been appointed as satrap of Mesopotamia. It was DOVRLQWKHDGMDFHQWVDWUDS\RI%DE\ORQLDWKDW0D]DLRVZDVDOORZHGWRVWULNHDFRLQDJHLQKLVQDPHDQGW\SHV LQĂ XHQFHGE\KLVSULRULVVXHV at Tarsos) for local use, and similar issues of local type and weight are known to have been issued at mints throughout the basin of the Tigris and Euphrates, from the time of Alexander to Seleukos I. Thus, these Athenian type tetradrachms likely constitute a local coinage of Mazakes, struck in the satrapy of Mesopotamia while he reigned there.

The model for the head on the obverse is taken from both the gold staters of Philip II and the silver of Patraos, which also inspired the reverse of this coin. It is also likely that Roman Republican denarii provided models for the types. It is interesting how the Celtic artist turned Apollo’s wreath into a broad diadem, quite possibly modelled on contemporary gold jewelry.

The presence of the club of Herakles, an already-familiar hero throughout Central Asia, not only gave the king a Greco-Roman, and, consequently, more cosmopolitan association, but also implied that he was a Herakles redivivus, a mortal able to achieve mythical tasks. Such divine association is carried further with Vimaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s depiction above the clouds. While it might be interpreted as his wish to be viewed a god, being associated with gods, or his elevation over other men, the inclusion of such imagery may, in fact, indicate a special status unattainable by others. 7KHSUHVHQFHRIWKHĂ DPHDW9LPD¡VVKRXOGHUVDPDQLIHVWDWLRQRINDYDHPNKYDUHQR WKH,UDQLDQFRQFHSWRIUR\DOJRRGIRUWXQH UHĂ HFWVWKHVWDWXV and power bestowed on a worthy ruler by the gods as a talisman of his lawful reign and surety of his success.

Following his victory at Actium, Octavian ordered a golden statue of Victory, standing on a globe and holding a wreath and palm, to be set up on an altar in the Curia in Rome. This statue had been captured by the Romans from Pyrrhus in 272 BC, and it assumed a somewhat tutelary mystique, protecting the Roman state from dissolution. In AD 382, the emperor Gratian ordered its removal. Two years later, the senator and orator Symmachus urged Valentinian II to replace it, a request that was met with stiff opposition from the bishop of Milan, Ambrose. 7KRXJKLWZDVEULHĂ \UHWXUQHGWRLWVSODFHE\WKHXVXUSHU(XJHQLXVLWZDVDJDLQUHPRYHGIROORZLQJKLVGHIHDW3HWLWLRQVWR7KHRGRVLXV,IRU its subsequent replacement were refused, on grounds that the once-important symbol of the godsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; blessing on the Roman Empire was now nothing more than a piece of paganism.

Good VF, toned, holed. Attractive portrait. Very rare. ($7500) Very little is known of the usurper Tiberius Claudius Marinus Pacatianus, who seized power in Upper Moesia in AD 248. Most of our information about Pacatian comes from his coinage. Viminacium is the most probable site for his mint, and a comparison with the local aes coinage shows remarkable similarity of style. Seven different reverses were used on the antoniniani of Pacatian -- Concordia, Felicitas, Fides, Fortuna, Pax, Roma and Victory -- all common themes in the third century. Such a variety of reverse types would suggest a large issue of coins, though today all coins of Pacatian are very rare, with only about 100 specimens of all varieties known.

($15,000) Jotapian led a short-lived revolt in Syria in the autumn of AD 249 while Philip I was still emperor. Little is known of Jotapianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s background. It was said that he boasted of a relationship to Severus Alexander, and his unusual name, although otherwise unknown for a man, is attested in its feminine form â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jotapeâ&#x20AC;? in the royal houses of Commagene and Emesa.

THE DAVID HENDIN COLLECTION OF SCARABS 7KHYHU\Ă&#x20AC;UVWVFDUDE,RZQHGZDVERXJKWIRUPHDWWKHJLIWVKRSRIWKH6W/RXLV$UW0XVHXPLQDURXQGZKLOH,ZDVVWLOOLQKLJKVFKRRO (in those days the museum shop did indeed sell genuine ancient scarabs!). It was a gift from my father, who collected all kinds of items, and he thought I would get a kick out of an ancient Egyptian scarab. Little did he knowâ&#x20AC;Ś In August 1967, I went to Israel as a volunteer and lived there for a year. My home for most of that time was an agricultural high school near Ashkelon. It was also about a forty minute bus ride from Gaza, which I visited several times. In the Gaza market, coins and numerous ancient objects were available. Although my main interest was coins, I remembered that scarab back at home, and took the opportunity to add many scarabs to my collection. Many of the most interesting scarabs I acquired were selected for me over the years by friends, such as Dr. Yaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;akov Meshorer, who I often accompanied to the market in Bethlehem, and Dr. Dan Barag, who I often accompanied to the Jerusalem market. I bought many scarabs from the famous Jerusalem dealer Khalil Iskander Kando, who is most famously known as the man who sold the Dead Sea Scrolls. I also bought many of them at the Bethlehem shop of his son Samir Kando. In an interesting coincidence, another friend and dealer who sold me scarabs and coins was the late Abu Ali Altaweel, who was one of the Bedouin boys who, in 1947, found the Dead Sea Scrolls. Abu Ali was a tall, gentle man, who owned a nut shop in Bethlehem and sold coins and small artifacts as a sideline. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a story General Moshe Dyan told about Abu Ali in his book Living with the Bible: I do not think anyone has ever succeeded in duping Abu Ali by trying to sell him a fake antique or a counterfeit coin. Whenever I bought anything from him, I could always be sure that it was authentic. One day I received a message from him telling me that he had a beautiful earthenware censer that he was sure would interest me. We arranged to meet in Jerusalem and there I saw it.... I bought it and asked where it had been discovered. Abu Ali said it was found in a cave south of Bethlehem. I asked him to take me there. I wished to see what kind of cave it was, whether a burial cave, a dwelling, or one used for pagan rites. +HSURPLVHGWRGRVRDQGZHĂ&#x20AC;[HGDGDWH%XWVKRUWO\EHIRUHZHZHUHGXHWRPHHWKHLQIRUPHGPHWKDWKHZDVYHU\EXV\DQGDVNHGIRUD postponement.

[I saw what] had once been a burial cave. The remains of skeletons were still there. But in the course of time it had been used as a sheepfold and as shelter for shepherds in heavy rains.... 1RZWKDWP\FXULRVLW\DERXWWKHFDYHKDGEHHQVDWLVĂ&#x20AC;HG,DVNHG$EX$OLZK\KHKDGNHSWSRVWSRQLQJRXUYLVLW´2K:D]LUÂľKHUHSOLHG´WKLV cave was being used at the time by a band of PLO saboteurs.

Another one of my favorite dealers in the 1970s was a man named Karâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;aien who had a small shop on the Via Dolorosa. He always had young, blond Scandinavian women as his shop assistants, and there was a funny, smoky smell in the air all the time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tobacco. Almost all of the scarabs in my collection were acquired between the 1960s and the very early 1980s in the shops in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Jericho, and other small towns in the area. Unfortunately, because they were small and relatively inexpensive objects, I did not record them the way I did for coins or weights, and at any rate receipts were almost never offered in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;shuks.â&#x20AC;? It is now my great pleasure to pass them along to a new generation of collectors. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;David Hendin CNG is proud to present the David Hendin Collection of Scarabs. The following lots feature an impressive variety of types, with some true gems scattered throughout. The scarab was a very popular amulet in ancient Egypt, its shape derived from the Scarabaeus Sacer, which was revered in Egypt as an embodiment of the creator god and a symbol of rebirth. Due to their regenerative power, they are often found in tombs, although their use was not limited to the funerary world. They were also used as lucky charms and worn, frequently as a ring mount, as protective amulets. This protective function is sometimes underscored by formulas invoking protection from the gods or for good luck. 7KHIROORZLQJORWVKDYHEHHQDUUDQJHGLQRUGHUE\W\SRORJ\DQGLQVFULSWLRQV7KHĂ&#x20AC;UVWVHFWLRQLVGHGLFDWHGWRWKHSLHFHVEHDULQJWKHQDPHDQG WLWOHVRIRIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOV7KHVHDUHWKHHDUOLHVWVFDUDEVLQWKHFROOHFWLRQGDWLQJWRWKH0LGGOH.LQJGRP6XFKVFDUDEVDUHYHU\LPSRUWDQWDVWKH\VKHG OLJKWRQWKHFRPSOH[(J\SWLDQDGPLQLVWUDWLRQRIWHQVHUYLQJDVWKHRQO\VRXUFHIRUWKHQDPHVDQGWLWOHVRIWKHRIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOVRIWKHSHULRG The second section is comprised of scarabs engraved with the names of pharaohs and queens. This is probably the most remarkable part of the collection and includes a number of fascinating and very rare pieces. To the Egyptians, names carried a vital force. The names of kings were even more important as they carried the power of the ruler. These scarabs were produced as protective amulets for the public, and were not issued by the royal workshops.

An important factor to bear in mind is that Egyptians frequently reissued pieces to commemorate certain Pharaohs. Some of them were so KLJKO\UHYHUHGVXFKDV7XWKPRVLV,,,WKDWWKHLUQDPHZDVSXWRQVFDUDEVORQJDIWHUWKHOLIHWLPHRIWKHNLQJ$VLWLVGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWWRSUHFLVHO\ determine which of them are lifetime and which are reissues, we have catalogued them under the Pharaoh whose name they bear. Special mention has to be given to two neatly carved scaraboids (lots 1968 and 1969) with attractive pale blue glazes. Among these an exceptionally rare piece bearing the name of Tutankhamun (the famous â&#x20AC;&#x153;King Tutâ&#x20AC;?). The third section is the largest and includes the so called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hyksosâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canaaniteâ&#x20AC;? scarabs. The majority, if not all, of these were probably SURGXFHGLQ&DQDDQZKLOHWKHUHJLRQZDVXQGHU(J\SWLDQLQĂ XHQFH7KH+\NVRV ´UXOHUVRIIRUHLJQODQGVÂľ ZHUHDSHRSOHIURPZHVWHUQ$VLD who arrived in Egypt during the 11th Dynasty and ultimately came to ruler over Egypt between the 15th and 17th Dynasties.

Section I: Titles and Private Names

1946. Middle Kingdom. 13th Dynasty (circa 1781-1650 BC). Steatite scarab (23x16mm). Base engraved with the title and name of the (female) â&#x20AC;&#x153;servant of the ruler, Lukenâ&#x20AC;? within a frame. Intact but for small chip at base, once glazed, pierced for mounting. Very rare. ($500) The name is otherwise unattested and is perhaps of foreign origin

1947. Middle Kingdom. 13th Dynasty (circa 1781-1650 BC). Steatite scarab (20x15mm). Base engraved with the title and name of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;royal carpenter, Nebsumenaâ&#x20AC;?. Cf. Martin 679-81 for the individual. Intact, once glazed, pierced for mounting. Very rare. ($400) See M. Mareeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forthcoming work Catalogue of MK stelae in the British Museum (Vol. I.1) for discussion of the title.

1948. Middle Kingdom. 14th Dynasty (circa 1710-1650 BC). Steatite scarab (19x14mm). Base engraved with the title and name of the the â&#x20AC;&#x153;treasurer prj-m-bnrt.â&#x20AC;? Small chips at mouth of piercing, once glazed, pierced for mounting. Very rare. ($400)

Section II: Royal Names

1949. Middle Kingdom. 12th Dynasty. Amenemhet II (circa 1929-1895 BC). Steatite scaraboid (14x8mm). Base engraved with the throne name of Amenhemet II, Nubkaure (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Golden are the Souls of Reâ&#x20AC;?). Intact, blue glaze preserved, pierced for mounting. A beautiful and neatly engraved piece. Most likely a New Kingdom reissue. ($750) Amenemhet (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Amun is at the Headâ&#x20AC;?) was the son of Senusret and the third king of the 12th Dynasty. Not much is known of his long reign although he must have continued the work of his predecessors in foreign affairs as there are records of increased relationships with the Levant. Jewelry bearing his cartouche was found in the Byblos royal tombs and expeditions are recorded to the Land of Punt and to the Red Sea. Amenemhetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pyramid was built at Dashur, near the site of an earlier King of the 4th Dynasty, Snefru.

1950 1951 1950. Middle Kingdom. 13th Dynasty. Queen Ini (circa 1781-1650 BC). Steatite scarab (22x15mm). Base engraved with the title and name of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Great Royal Wife, United with the White Crown, Iniâ&#x20AC;?. Cf. NFA 13; Matouk I, 85; Hall 202; Basel 127. A few chips, once glazed, pierced for mounting. ($400) Queen Ini is well attested on scarabs and other sources dating to the 13th Dynasty. The name of her husband is not known but one suggestion is that she could be the wife of King Aya in the late 13th Dynasty. She is one of the earliest queens whose name is written in a cartouche. $OWKRXJKUR\DOZRPHQKDGDVSHFLDOVWDWXVLQ(J\SWLQWHUHVWLQJO\WKHUHLVQRZRUGIRUTXHHQDQGWKH\DUHDOZD\VGHĂ&#x20AC;QHGLQDUHODWLRQWRWKH husband as â&#x20AC;&#x153;kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wifeâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;great kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wifeâ&#x20AC;?.

1951. 2nd Intermediate Period. 15th Dynasty. Sheshi (circa 1650-1550 BC). Steatite scarab (18x13mm). Base divided into three vertical panels, the central one engraved with the birth name of King Sheshi, preceded and followed by the epithets â&#x20AC;&#x153;Son of Reâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;May he live foreverâ&#x20AC;?. On the sides, ankh signs. Cf. NFA 27; Matouk I, 241. Small chips on the base, otherwise intact with clear name, once glazed, pierced for mounting. ($400) There is considerable uncertainty in attributing the exact length of the reign of Sheshi and the other Hyksos kings. The time span allocated to the Hyksos by the Turin papyrus is 108 years but due to damage in the papyrus it remains uncertain whether Sheshi ruled 13 or 23 years. The title â&#x20AC;&#x153;Son of Reâ&#x20AC;? accompanies the name given to the Pharaoh at birth, strengthening his right to rule as the son of the god.

1952. 2nd Intermediate Period. 15th Dynasty. Uncertain Hyksos King (circa 1650-1550 BC). Steatite scarab (22x16mm). Base divided into three vertical panels, the central one engraved with the birth name of an Hyksos king, preceded and followed by the epithets â&#x20AC;&#x153;Son of Reâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given Lifeâ&#x20AC;?. On sides, decorative signs. Intact, once glazed, pierced for mounting. ($300) The composition and titles on the base of this piece are undoubtedly characteristic of a royal Hyksos name. It is unclear whether this is an entirely new name of just a misspelling (perhaps of Sheshi).

1953. New Kingdom. 18th Dynasty. Ahmose-Nefertari, royal wife of Ahmose I (circa 1570-1546 BC). Steatite scarab (19x15mm). Base engraved with the name of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ahmose-Nefertari, born of Iah (the moon god), the beautiful companion.â&#x20AC;?. Cf. Petrie XXIII, 13-14. Intact with the name neatly carved and clear, once glazed, pierced for mounting. Rare.

She lived a long life and died at the beginning of Tuthmosis I reign. Her body was discovered in the 19th century and unwrapped in 1885 by Emile Brugsch. Her mummy was apparently smelling so badly that Brugsch had it reburied on museum grounds in Cairo.

1954 1955 1954. New Kingdom. 18th Dynasty. Tuthmosis III (circa 1504-1450 BC). Steatite scaraboid (15x9mm). Base is engraved with the name of Tuthmosis III, rendered with three khepers.

Through seventeen military campaigns he expanded the lands under Egyptian dominion to create the largest empire Egypt had ever seen, conquering much of the Near East up to the Euphrates to the east and Nubia to the south. Due to this hectic expansionistic activity the American archeologist J. H. breasted called him the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Napoleon of Egyptâ&#x20AC;?.

1955. New Kingdom. 18th Dynasty. Tuthmosis III (circa 1504-1450 BC). Steatite scarab (17x12mm). Base engraved with the name of Tuthmosis III. Well preserved but for a small chip on the back, light blue glaze, pierced for mounting. ($300)
