Sicily, Eryx, c. 4th century BC. Æ (15mm, 4.86g, 9h). Female head r. R/ Horse stepping r. Horse standing r., with raised foreleg. Campana 49; CNS I, 18; SNG ANS -; HGC 2, 326. Brown patina, VF - Good VF Eryx, (Erice) Sicily high on a mountain top reached by cable car, would take 45 min compared to 10 via cable car, but even when you reach the old city their was still an up hill walk through this ancient arch. Well worth the walk to the top first impression of the 11th century Norman castle was awe inspiring with great views of the landscape below. After entry (pic below) I walked out into the uppermost courtyard, mainly ruins with not much evidence of the Roman temple that once stood in the area, except for an area where diggings have uncovered a Roman thermal bath. Also of interest was the Ritual baths of Venus, which could date back to Early Roman times. (below) High on my want list is this Roman Republican, depicting the Roman temple that I was presumably walking all over on my holiday. Unfortunately not my coin CNG archives. WOULD LOVE TO SEE EVERYONE'S SICILY COINS, OR ANYTHING YOU THINK IS RELEVANT.
