But there are so many coins in other areas that would be nice to have too gahhh. I guess time will tell, for now “appeal” is the only rule and I hope to make a little webpage like the awesome ones of AncientJoe and TIF mainly for my own sake to keep track and maybe do some fun write ups. Anyway first out is a denarius from Septimius Severus. Not much thought went into this one more than I found it really nice. I'm trying to be really picky so finding a good portrait and reverse are even more important now than before. RIC IV Septimius Severus 167A (denarius) Date: A.D. 200 - A.D. 201 Mint: Rome Obverse: SEVERVS AVG PART MAX: Head of Septimius Severus, laureate, right Reverse: RESTITVTOR VRBIS: Septimius Severus, in military attire, standing left, sacrificing out of patera in right hand over tripod and holding spear in left hand Second is a denarius from Caracalla. I found the depiction of Hercules with the Nemean lion really cool. The coin type is not that rare but finding a lionhead that actually looks like a head with the paws visible turned out to be pretty hard. I have been looking for quite some time until I ran over this little gem. A bit unfortunate that it has small cracks 12 and 6 o’clock but I think the portrait and lionhead makes up for that. RIC IV Caracalla 206a Date: A.D. 213 Mint: Rome Obverse: ANTONINVS PIVS AVG BRIT: Head of Caracalla, laureate, right Reverse: P M TR P XVI COS IIII P P: Hercules, naked except for lion-skin draped over left arm, standing left, holding branch in right hand and club in left hand Please post your Severans and Nemean lions.
