You can go back and edit the post, including the title, I believe. And you probably should, otherwise this thread will go in a very different direction from what you'd planned.
And Hades right back at chew
Love the type! I sold mine years ago. Share the reverse and we're friends
Here's my tall dark stranger:
Since you asked nicely XD
Now, do tell more about your Roman terracotta tile from Germania??? I've never had one of those before
Not a lot I can say personally, I’ve seen some that look similar but I’m sure these tend to be pretty unique varying on the builder. Got it from a relic/artifact shop I frequent in Tennessee who have quite a lot of ancient artifacts and more modern ones! This was labeled as being part of an ex piccini collection
Yes, but only the originator of the thread can do that: go to the first page of the thread, click on “Thread Tools” on the top right - select “Edit Title” from the drop-down menu.
Oops, meant to say: Damn nice of you (to show us this cool specimen & especially the tile!)
For a while I used mosaic tesserae I found in Israel as stands for some denarii.
Looked really nice. No pics of them, I'm afraid.
My one and only Augustus, a restoration issue under Nerva.
No tesserae to show, but I like the portrait:
15,97 gr, 32,50 gr.
Obv: DIVUS AUGUSTUS
Rev: IMP NERVA IMP CAESAR AUGVSTVS REST
The seller didn't know what to make of the coin. Neither do I. Weight-wise it's in dupondius territory, but the issue only has sestertii. So it's an oddity.
Here is an Augustus As cut in Half for change...
Made into a Semis or Half-As:
CUT AE As or Semis (Half-As)
Laureate Augustus -
Cut in ancient times to make change
