    Thank you for the support! This is a great volume. I went out and bought a Chinese ant nose coin after reading Thomas’ article!

    Looking forward to read these new articles. And by the way @seth77 , a new paper on page...77 ...is it a coincidence?

    Excellent. Tell all your friends.

    And the call for essays for Volume IV is still open.

    I just read the Introduction, and its concluding paragraph is wonderful:

    Whatever the future holds, I find solace in the fact that the spirit of Koinon is a spirit of mutual cooperation toward a unified goal—the shared appreciation of ancient coins as a virtuous activity. As Hesiod reminded us in the journal’s opening quote, ‘And do not be storm-tossed in your mood at a dinner party with many guests: when things are shared in common (κοινοῦ), the pleasure is the most and the expense is the least.’ (Trans. G.W. Most, Loeb). So, as we face difficult times, let’s all together behold the mosaic of the ancient coins and recognize that, in their beauty, we can find solace. In short, let’s look not to Caracalla but to Sol Invictvs, and know that the sun will indeed rise again.

    Vivat Achelous!

    Thank you so much, @Nicholas Molinari. It says everything about what ancient coins -- and this forum -- have meant to me in this terrible year.

    Koinon III arrived in time for Christmas. US editors, I’ll ship yours right after the holiday. International editors, you should receive yours any day now!
