    Did anyone else follow live bidding or even win something in the first part of Artemide e-Live 17, which has just ended?

    They sold some fine Roman Republican coins in different price ranges, and the auctioneer who did the live video stream in my eyes did a good job. Hammer prices were generally strong but not as crazy as we have seen with other recent auctions. Lot 251, a nicely toned RRC 262/1 with a little elephant head, now is mine – my first real ancient auction win this year! (Pictures will be posted once I have the coin in hand.)

    Still, I am surprised at how much some popular but common Republican denarii in relatively attractive condition hammered for. If I see correctly, lots 238/239, 283, 294 and 301, for example, would have been €50 coins back in 2019. Now, they sold for two to four times that much...

    I followed almost the entire auction, but was outbid on the only coin I really wanted. The prices of some coins were fairly ordinary. But some also went for exceptional amounts.

    2EC43992-3957-4D85-9E56-E7CFC9BD377E.jpeg I always find something at a decent price at Artemide auctions, it is one of the few that offer quality coins in the middle graded conservation. I noticed too that there are no more RRdenarii under 100€.

    today I won this:
    Q. Caecilius Metellus Pius Scipio. AR Denarius, 47-46 BC, Africa mint. Obv. Head of Jupiter right, laureate. Rev. Elephant right. Cr. 459/1. AR. 3.97 g. 19.00 mm. Lightly toned. About EF/VF.
