    7Calbrey, Nice picks for your closing 5 :D. I love your AE 4 of Aelia Flaccilla from Antioch ;). I'm hoping to find a portrait coin of her as nice as yours. A gold example is out of my price range :rolleyes:, but I'd settle for a nice looking bronze.

    chrsmat71 I LIKE TURTLES!

    I'm going with that GIII, cool reverse with a lovely Tyche and a neat little Aquarius.
