The use of the anchor and the A clearly marks this as an issue ofApollonia, and itfollows that the accompanying pieces with A only are also ofthat city.

In a series ofarticles by Richard Ashton, Tony Hackens, Martin Price and others, evidence has been presented suggesting the extensive minting of Rhodian style drachms in Crete, mainland Greece and possibly other areas in the early 2nd century BC. These issues were struck to pay the armies of mercenaries employed by both Rhodes and other states involved in the numerous wars of the Hellenistic period. Ashton has attributed the series of Rhodian types without the PO ethnic to a mint in northem Greece, with a date possibly as late as Perseus ' war against Rome in 171 BC. Similar types, but with the PO are associated with Rhodian activities on Crete beginning circa 200 BC and are either official Rhodian issues or struck on Crete.

Rare 'Facing Bust Type' of Phraates III

Rare and Exceptional Tetradrachm of Mithradates II

423. Phraates III. 70-57 BC. AR Drachm (4.16 gm). Mithradatkart mint. Facing diademed bust / Archer seated; monogram. Shore 166; Sellwood 35.4 variety (Darius; legend iii). Toned EF. Rare. ($1000) Fred Shore has identified three distinct phases in the coinage of Phraates III. The first, with a young portrait facing left, was possibly struck during a joint reign of Phraates and hisfather Smatrukes b^re 70 BC. The rarefacing head issue may be regarded as a coronation issue at his assumption of sole rule, as is perhaps the more common bust with tiara type. Later types show him as an older man with long beard.

The temple of Jupiter Capitolinus wasfounded in thefirst year of the Republic, 509 BC; the dedication to three deities Jupiter, Juno and Minerva reflecting the Etruscan origins of the Roman state religion.

RIC 577, pl. Ill, 37). The temple makes other appearances on issues of Domitian, commemorating its rebuilding after the fire of80 AD, and again in 202 ADfor thedecennalia of Severus.

Classical Numismatic Group‫׳‬,Inc. and donatives. The location of the "RSR" mint has been attributed to London for the following reasons: 1). the logical location for a precious metal mint would be Carausius' administrative capital, and 2). an RSR aureus shares an obverse die with an unmarked antoninianus attributed to the London mint. Donative type coins, gold, silver and bronze medallions were all struckwith RSR letters and P.J. Casey in "Carausius and Allectus: The British Usurpers" speculates that all the base metal coins are unofficial.

($250) J. van Heesch, "The Last Civic Coinages and the Religious Policy of Maximinus Dam (312 AD), Num Chron 1993, pp.65-75 has provided the latest chronology for the anonymous civic bronzes of the 4th century. An active campaign of persecution against local Christians, abetted by Maximinus, reached its height in Nicomedia, Antioch and Alexandria. Churches were closed, property was seized from the Christians and they were expelledfrom many cities. The three major mint cities struck a series ofsmall bronzes honoring the old Greco-Roman gods, Jupiter, Apollo, Tyche and Serapis among them. The persecutions subsided thefollowing year, possibly as a result of concerns expressed by Constantine and Licinius, the emperors in the west.

The precise dating and rationale for this, the last "Roman" bronze of the mint of Rome, cannot be decided on the known evidence. Odovacar Iwd removed the last emperor in Rome, Romulus Augustus, in 476, seeing no needfor a separate western emperor. Thus this piece could declare his continuing loyalty to Zeno, the eastern emperor. The IUI below the bust might represent thefourth year ofZeno's reign (477). Alternately, this piece could be regarded as the beginning of the Ostrogothic monetary reforms of the 490's which saw the re-introduction of large circulating bronzes and probably spurred the later reform of Anastasius around 498. The IIII 1187. VANDALS. Gelimit 530-534 AD. JE 42 Nummi (7.04 gm). KART would then be thefourth officina of the mint.

Two examples of this type werefound at Kranj and Rifnic, towns at the eastern border between Lombard territory and the Balkans. While Cos attributes them to the Lombards, other scholars regard them as precursors to the denars of the Slavic tribes ofDalmatia.

Hermenegild rebelled against his father Leovigild in 579, a family rift further aggravated by Hermenegild's conversion in 582 to Catholicism, the faith of his wife Ingundis of Austrasia (the Visigothic royal house supported the Arian creed). Hermenegild was probably encouraged by Frankish and Byzantinefactions who saw their influence in Iberia waning under the strong rule of Leovigild, and who ivished to see the Visigothic realm divided and weakened. Leovigild hadfirst to put down a revolt of the Basques, but when he turned to deal with his son in 582 he easily overwhelmed hisfarces.Hermenegild received no aidfromhis erstwhile backers, other than being declared a Catholic martyr after his murder in 585.

The "stellati" histamenon has exercised the minds of numismatistsfor generations. The popular story that the stars represent the Great Nebula of1054 has neverfound substantiation in the historical record. An alternative theory, that it marks the Great Schism of the Churches that also occurred in 1054 is an event that is unlikely to have been commemorated on a Byzantine coin, even if the significance was realized at the time. So we need another event worthy of commemoration. There are three factors to be taken into account. Thefirstis the stars themselves, obviously reflecting a dual event of great con temporary significance, since they appear only on one specific issue. The second is that there is also a change in the imperial portrait; Constantine holds a globus cruciger and a sword, as opposed to the usual globus and scepter. Andfinally,there is an obvious change in theform of the coin itself, with the type being found with bothflatand concave ("scyphate") fabrics. This probably reflects some subtle shift in weight and/orfineness.As Grierson suggests, the change in fabric probably occurred early in the reign of Constantine, sometime in the 1040's. If the star issue is seen as transitional, it would have to have been struck in the mid1040's, leaving no basis for the traditional 1054 date. So, do the stars reflect a significant evenHs) of thattime?Early in 1043, the renowned general George Maniakes, having lost his position in a dispute with a fellow official, rebelled and led his army in Anatolia against the capitol. A hardfought battle in Thrace saw the death of the

1 2 6


Classical Numismatic rebel and the defeat of hisforces. In that same year 1043, the Russian prince /aroslav, either acting in concert with Maniakes or simply taking advantage of the clwos ofcivilwar, sent 400ships and 20,000 men to beseige Constantinople. The resulting confrontation with the Byzantine navy on the Bosporos ended with the almost complete destruction of the Russian fleet. Perhaps the costs of these two conflicts necessitated a reduction in the value of the currency, marked by the change fromflat to curvedflans. The "stellati" thus commemorate the twin victories of 1043, with Constan tine depicted as a victorious soldier-emperor, defender of the Empire, sword in hand,flankedby symbols of his Cod-given successes.

The early coinage of Estridsen shows unmistakable Byzantine influence, and can be dated as early as 1044, when he rebelled against Magnus of Norway. He was initially backed by Harald Hardrada, who rose to prominence in the Varangian guard, bodyguards for the Byzantine emperor in Constantinople. Tradition recalls that Harald returned home with a vast treasure, which he used to support Estridsen and later to become king of Norway himself. 1 2 0
