Antiochus III Megas
Seleucia on the Tigris
Minted before the revolt of Melon(Molon)
And what a lovely coin!
You are a seleukid fan just like I am !
Yes, yes I am!
I’m currently trying to put a set of Seleucid Kings in Tetradrachms, together.
Right now I’m thru the 300’s and 200’s, and am at Seleucus IV.
Seleucus I Nikator
Antiochus I Soter
Antiochus II Theos(1 of 3 I have of him)
Seleucus II Kallinicus
Seleucus III Ceraunus
Antiochus III Megas
@Bing - that's quite a milestone that deserves a celebration. Break out the champagne (and coins!)
@Bing! I always enjoy your posts. And a wonderful coin!
Masikytes, Lycia Hemidrachm - Lycian League (48–23 B.C.)
Obverse: Laureate head of Apollo right.
Reverse: M-A, Kithara/Lyre; serpent coiled around omphalos lower left; all within incuse square.
Reference: BMC 19.63.4, vgl.Troxell 97.
I've only gotten as far as one percent of that...
And a nice coin. It's on my wishlist as well.
Only 19.788 more posts to go before I can afford it...
I've been here for 15 years and have "only" posted 5 K messages
And very nice gift from you to yourself !
Steve would have said : "you rock coin bro' !"
Is that Black Billon?
Bing, thank you for the posts!
@Bing and that one is a beauty!
Wanna race to 100,000 likes? At current pace the survivor should get there in five years or so.
Sooner I think. I even gave you another "like". And thanks for the kind words. I dunno. My son doesn't live far from you in Manassas. I haven't been there in about 3 years, but one day when I do visit, perhaps we can meet up. I've been wanting to sit on Santa's knee again. I am going thru my second childhood (or maybe it's still the first).
A stellar achievement,
Of remarkable note -
A number most remarkable,
Exceeding a mortal's hopes –
The output is prodigious
And the future is auspicious
For you’re clearly feeling your oats –
Now on to 100,000 posts!
If you play it right, the two can meet in the middle. The old saying is, "The only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys."
@Bing ! And a gift that suits your achievement best ;-)
