    What a terrific post - so many nice coins here. I really like the coins of Tacitus, for reasons having to do with weird history (is he really responsible for the historian Tacitus's survival because he authorized so many copies of his works made? Some think this is the case). But also and because so many of his coins are quite attractive (and affordable).

    I only have two:
