    Heh. Thankfully in our Information Overload Age it's easy to get up to speed on just about any topic, eh. And with that, let's welcome our next speaker on sexual imagery on classical coinage... chrsmat71. He's brought pictures! :wideyed:

    It took a couple of years but now I have one too. Part of the attraction is just that I love saying "apotropaic pudenda virilia" :D

    CORINTHIA, Corinth
    c. 400-375 BCE
    AR stater. 20 mm, 8.25 gm
    Obv: Pegasus flying left; qoppa below
    Rev: helmeted head of Athena right; EYO (retrograde) above; pudenda virilia behind

    Took awhile, but finally, I have an apotropaic pudenda virilia buddy! Yeah, that just doesn't sound right... but who cares :D!

    Oh, and since you're showing yours, I recently took new pics of mine...

    This is an old thread. How did your effort to work this into daily conversation work out? Would 'Practicioner of the Apotropaic Arts' go over well in your peer group?

    I did-- couple of times in one day, soon after that post. I used the word at work and my audience is accustomed to ignoring my mutterings, especially when I use big words :D In this case they were correct to ignore me since it was a completely unnecessary sentence (I don't remember exactly how I worked it in)
