(thought I should post now - prior to the AMCC 3 Auction madness!). The coin features a really interesting patina that has formed over remaining silvering - for a nice effect. Plus who doesn't love a coin featuring a Serapis severed head and the flowing robes of Sol?? Maximinus II A.D. 312 21mm 4.9g IMP C GAL VAL MAXIMINVS P F AVG; laureate head right. SOLI INVICTO; Sol standing left in long robe, right hand raised, left hand holding head of Serapis; BI in left and ✶ in right field. In ex. ANT While reading up on the coin, and Maximinus II, I was interested to learn that he was the last Roman Emperor (and ruler overall) to be accorded the title "Pharaoh of Egypt". Although Roman Emperors generally only acknowledged the title whilst visiting Egypt. I was always under the impression that Cleopatra VII was the final Pharaoh.. however her co-ruler Caesarian (her son with Julius Caesar) lived for some months (on the run) before his eventual murder at aged 17... so perhaps its Caesarian (Ptolemy XV Caesar) is considered the last by many? The first dynasty of Egypt started at approximately 3150 BC .. if you are one that includes the Roman Pharaohs (started by Octavian - also called the 34th Dynasty) this title survived in Egypt unbroken (perhaps?) for approximately 3500 years.. During this 3500 years there have been many Persians and Greeks claiming the title of Pharaoh - so why not acknowledge the Roman claim? Gaius Iulius Caesar Augustus depicted Egyptian style on the free-standing temple of Kalabsha in Egyptian Nubia Please share any coins of Maximinus II and/or your thoughts on Pharaonic succession. Thank you for looking!
