    Yeah, I bought her for laughs (c'mon, the reverse is a horse's rear), the fantastic turrets coming off of Tyche and those daggers that would cut the devils diamonds coming from her eyes:eek:
    Troas. Alexandreia. Pseudo-autonomous issue circa AD 200-300. Bronze Æ 22mm., 4,62g. CO-L TROAD, turreted and veiled bust of Tyche right, vexillum at shoulder / COL AVG TRO, horse grazing right. very fine Belinger A486. Ex: Savoca blue 2020

    But that's not the only wild eyed lunatic in my collection:

    That is an impressive array of googly-eyed ancients! Very impressive.

    Along the same lines, I got in this Justinian I follis the other day. Although the portrait is worn, it still has some weird eyes - or he is wearing glasses, setting back the date of the invention of spectacles a few centuries?

    I think Demeter looks a little angry. Maybe she is a little annoyed at what Kleonymous is doing to her city. Stater of Metapontion 330-290 BC obv Head of Demeter 3/4 facing right wreathed in grain. Rv, Ear of Barley Johnston Class C 2.2. HGC 1064 the coin illustrated. 7.92 grms 20mm Phot by W. Hansen metapontum26.jpg I remember when I got this coin. It was featured in the CNG Calendar for 2018 and was Miss February. I was in New York at the Triton Auction. This coin came up I put up my hand and that was it. Got it on the opening bid and basically shot my auction allowance for this event as well. However ever since I have always referred to this coin as " Calendar Girl" ( Even if she is just a little bit intimidating)

    Antoninus Pius is disapointed and susprised
    ... but Septimius Severus was expecting this
    Magnentius just stares blankly

    And Tetricus pretends he didn't know a thing

    ..... but it's a fact, they are coming.

    These Bulgarian's fakes were flooding the market 15 years ago. An easy way to recognized them was by their " overly circular eyes" .

    Constans II and his son Constantine IV have a lot of these. Sometimes I wonder if the emperors just had absolutely no care about how they were presented or what


    This Constantine IV is like a proto-Picasso

    Maybe it was the constant shock of having just lost two-thirds of the Empire.

    What an enjoyable thread this is.

    Here's another - Justin II and wife Sophia on a follis, looking pretty much like a pair of praying mantises.

    Or aliens. Were they aliens? Is this Chariots of the Gods evidence? Did Martians build the Hagia Sophia? Aliens did the Pyramids for sure ;), but what about the Walls of Constantinople, etc.? :blackalien::android::vulcan::)
