    But wait there is more.......my first coin was a Gratian, Victory advancing left holding wreath and palm, I bought this coin for $20 at a flea market in the Gold coast Queensland. Had absolutely no idea what I was doing, just gob-smacked that there was such a thing as a coin 1600 years old, little did I know then that you could purchase coins 2,500 years old, any way there has to be a beginning at some stage. Gratian AE3 Minted Rome 367-375 AD, 2.1gm officina QVARTA (4th) RIC 23c, LRBC-720. 20160821_114809.jpg 20160821_114738.jpg

    Carthago Does this look infected to you?

    I love that! A congress, herd, or pack is simply not properly descriptive. Though I also like a murder of Victories..

    How about Happy Days Restored after the Emperor (standing) has been steered to glory by Victory (at Prow, steering galley) taking Christianity (Labarum) with him with happiness rising from the ashes (Phoenix)

    Beautiful coins. I love the Vinicia type - it always seems to me that Victoria is jubilant, throwing her head back and her arm in the air in pure delight.

    This was the best Nike/Victoria I ever had the privilege of handling: image00439.jpg

    Well...I'm going to follow up that beautiful golden Nike with a LRB that I've never posted before. I'm not too proud of the picture. I feel like I'm moving backwards with photography...sigh. Need to spend some more time on it.

    My best guess is the above. You are more likely to get a reply for a new question if you start a thread for it rather than tacking it on to a 2016 thread.
