In addition the coin has a very interesting provenance, it comes from the Banasa/El Ksar Hoard of 1907 (IGCH 2307). According to Roma: "The Banasa Hoard, deposited in circa AD 20-24 was found in 1907 near modern day Souk-el Arbaa, 120 km northeast of Rabat, Morocco, in 1907. The hoard was previously said to be from Alkazar (El Ksar El Kebir), 70 km south of Tangier and hence is occasionally referred to as the El Ksar Hoard. The group contained approximately 4000 silver coins and one bronze. A substantial number of the coins now reside in public collections, principally in London, Paris, Berlin, Athens, New York and Algiers." I've never owned a coin with a (known/disclosed) hoard provenance before! The coin is apparently very rare (no other examples on coin archives according to Roma)--nor could I find any other examples online at all. Does anyone have the reference books Mazard or MAA, that the listing cites? I would be very grateful if someone could look it up for me. The coin itself is a bit of a wreck: crystallized, encrusted, "chipped" (more like broken in half), but I love it. Kingdom of Mauretania, Cleopatra Selene AR Denarius. Caesarea, circa AD 11-AD 23. BAΣIΛI [KΛ]Є[OΠATPA], diademed and draped bust left / Bull standing right, with crescent between horns. Mazard 393; MAA 109; SNG Copenhagen -. 2.35g, 19mm, 6h. Very Rare. I have an equally ravaged, shall we say, fouree denarius of her parents, and I think the two coins will make quite the set. Cleopatra and Mark Antony. Double Portrait Plated Denarius. Autumn 34 BC Alexandria mint. Obv: CLE[OPATRAE REGINAE REGVM FILIORVM REGVM] legend with diademed and draped bust of Cleopatra VII right, stem of prow before. Rev: [ANTONI ARME]NIA DE[VICTA] legend with bare head of Mark Antony right; Armenian tiara behind. 2.48 grams. Fine; some areas of plating missing. Rare issue. RRC 543/1; CRI 345; BMC East 179; RSC 1; Sear 1515. Finally in reading more about Cleopatra Selene I found this eulogy to her written by Crinagoras of Mytilene: The moon herself grew dark, rising at sunset, Covering her suffering in the night, Because she saw her beautiful namesake, Selene, Breathless, descending to Hades, With her she had had the beauty of her light in common, And mingled her own darkness with her death. Post your new Roma wins, Cleopatra Selene's, impulse buys or anything else relevant.
