Well, considering the Castel Sant'Angelo originally had a funerary purpose as Hadrian's mausoleum, I suppose that fits.
(Just needed an excuse to repost my old Hadrian sestertius, which I swapped away, and sorely miss now...)
..either way, i'd like to have a coin of each! (and they still remind me of bday cakes )
That pic was a model of what Hadrian's Mausoleum looked like in ancient times, the model is actually in the Mausoleum.
Nice coin but that's cheating posting coins you don' own anymore, that's like me posting this.......
ahahaha.. ok youse guys @lordmarcovan and @Ancient Aussie ...can't we all just get along ..( you guys are crackin' me up ><..don't stop because of me)
O, i just got a prov. of him and have been bidding on more ants. also..ole young H. .....
If I didn't fall back on my "bygones", I'd have practically nothing to post! I've got only 36 pieces in my primary collection as of this week!
well..that's 16 more than 20 .. O man..am i behind the times..not box o 20 eh?!) oops again
..that ain't Herrinius Etrucus(spck) is it?!... oops..
Okay I feel sorry for you now. ........I promise not to post any of my old Gordy pics anymore in fact I'm going to tear up the pics.
Whoops. Miscount. Technically 34 pieces in the next Eclectic Box update, which I might post this morning. Edit: it is up, now.
Yes, the "Box of 20" concept, while it was a good game plan for me for four years, finally went out the window last spring. I'm now letting my collection grow gradually.
The self-imposed 20-coin limit forced me to part with too many nice pieces I now sorely miss. That approach takes detachment and firm self-discipline (which is not usually my strong suit). I do not regret having played by those rules for four years, but now it's just the plain old "Eclectic Box" rather than the "Eclectic Box of 20".
But enough about that. I'll post my own thread and stop hijacking this one.
Now, where were we? Lyres? Pyres? Wedding cakes? Funerary monuments?
i am glad for you friend! ..where were we?.. the information superhighway with lots o banter ^^
Gents, i've got a pic of a Patricus's funeral pyre tonite(or anyway, what i would assume one looks like, according to hollywood anyway.
I have several lyre types but you all have posted most already. Here is a lyre type that seems rare. No examples on acsearch.info and I don't think there are any examples in RPC.

Although Antioch was in Roman Syria it is not in modern Syria. Antioch is across the border, in Turkey.
