Chios, c. 270-265 BC. Drachm, 4.17g. Unpublished. Rx: Symbol: Elephant head 3/4 left facing with large ears and tusks. This symbol surely relates to the victory of Antiochus III over barbarians in 269 BC. The Galatian tribes crossed the Hellespont in winter of 278/7. Some of them served briefly as mercenaries in the army of Nicomedes of Bithynia, but then they were set loose to ravage Asia Minor. The three tribes divided Asia Minor into raiding districts. The Trocmi took the Hellespontine coast, the Tolistobogii claimed Aeolis and Ionia, and the Tectosages drew the inland. Places known to have been raided or threatened/extorted include Cyzicus (278/7), the sanctuary at Didyma (277/6), Priene and Erythrae (270s), Thyatira, Laocidea on the Lycus, and perhaps Limyra or other places in Lycia. In 269 BC, Antiochus I drove the barbarians out of Asia Minor. Antiochus I was honored as Soter (Savior) by the Ionian League and at Bargylia in Caria. The “Elephant Victory” was commemorated by terracotta statuettes at Myrina and by a poet from Magnesia ad Sipylum. Obverse has surface porosity from 10 to 12

Head of Hermes flatly struck and partially off flan on reverse, a few old light scratches and a scrape on obverse. A slightly better coin was estimated at 275,000 Swiss francs in a recent sale. The rare coins of Pheneus were minted in the short period of freedom and prosperity for the city after the wars between the Boeotians (led by the general Epaminondas) and the Spartans, and before the conquest of mainland Greece by Philip II and Alexander the Great. While the obverse type harks back to the popular Arethusa head of the Syracusan decadrachms, the reverse is original: the local hero Arkas, ancestor of the Arkadians, being rescued as a young child by the god Hermes. Being the son of Zeus and the nymph Kallisote, Arkas was in danger of falling victim, as his mother did, to the jealous rage of Zeus’ wife Hera. Therefore Hermes brought the child to his own mother, the nymph Maia, who lived in the mountains near Pheneus, where Arkas then grew up. Even today, the Pheneus valley remains a place to escape to and relax, especially for hasseled contemporary Athenians. Toned EF.............22500 CAPPADOCIA, ARIARATHES V; 163-130 BC.

Traditionally called “The plan of a Roman camp”, this reverse type probably in fact depicts the famous vision of Constantine I, the cross within a circle surrounding the sun that he and his army saw in the sky while marching north from Marseilles in spring 310 AD. This explanation of the type, proposed by David Miller in The Celator some ten years ago, has assumed new claims to validity now that Peter Weiss, in Volume 16 (2003) of the Journal of Roman Archaeology, has convincingly explained Constantine’s vision as a solar halo that appeared in Gaul in 310.
