This very rare type was struck during the final days of Magnentius when the city of Trier had revolted in favor of Constantius II.

The solidi of this rare issue are heavier than usual with this one weighing 4.56 rather than the usual 4.45g.; some examples are at an even higher weight. Kent notes in RIC that these may have been issued to contrast with the light weight solidi of Magnentius at this time and to show the stability of the legitimate ruler.

Provenance/Pedigrees

Ex: Sotheby, London, Auction, July 6-7, 1921, lot 132. This auction is cataloged as the property of a well known collector who was most likely Ernest John Seltman, the father of the famous numismatist John Theodore Seltman(1886-1957) as attested by Spring and Manville.

Ex: Sir Arthur Evans, Ars Classica, Lucerne, Auction XVII, 1934, lot 1936. The catalog lists this coin as coming from the Montagu collection which was sold in Paris in 1896, but this coin does not appear in the Montagu catalog. Perhaps this was a private purchase outside the auction by Evans from Feurdant in Paris who handled the Montagu collection of Roman gold.

This is the final portrait issue of Antony before his defeat and death. The obverse legend on this coin proclaims Antony's third consulship of 31 B.C. However in reality he had been deleted from the consulship roles the previous year by the Senate; the actual consuls for 31 were Octavius and Valerius Messala. The legend also lists an uncertain fourth imperatorship. The titles here seem to indicate a hopeful outcome at Actium. Further the magistrate, Decimus Turullius, who signs in a small monogram on the reverse was one of the last surviving assassins of Julius Caesar; he switched sides to Antony after Philippi.

Tarpeia facing with extended arms while being buried in shields. RIC 299. BN 157. Lightly toned and with an unusually well struck reverse with the inner detail of the shields visible.

The reverse refers to the legend of Tarpeia from early Roman myth. According to Livy, during the siege of Rome by the Sabine King Tatius, a Roman vestal virgin and daughter of the Roman commander, Tarpeia, offered the Sabines a secret entry to the city. She did this in exchange for what they wore on their left arms(i.e. jewelry). However, the Sabines not respecting any traitor buried her in their shields which were also carried on their left arms. Her body was then hurled from a section of the Capitoline Hill that became known as the Tarpeian rock and the site of later Roman executions.

Florian Haymann, Untersuchungen Zur Geschichte und Identitätskonstruktion von Aigeai im Römischen Kilikien (20 v.-280 n. CHR) , 101a.1(this coin listed)= Prieur 723 = SNG Levante 1741 (this coin). H. Bloesch, "Caracalla in Aigeai," in Congresso internazionale di numismatica Roma, 1961, vol. 2: Atti (Rome: 1965), pp. 307-8, pl. 23, 1 var. (date format)= Winterthur museum, G 4535. Gitta Kastner, Munich, Auction 4, November 27, 1973, lot 165 (this coin now in the British Museum= London, 1975, 0930.2 )

The sanctuary of Asclepius in Aigeai was already widely known by the 2nd century and mentioned by Serenus Sammonicus in his Liber Medicinalis. It was considered to be a triad with the Asklepions in Pergamon and Epidauros. Serenus was a tutor to Caracalla and Geta, but he was murdered in 211 during the purge of Caracalla. (Cf. Hayman, p. 157 and note 1085). Caracalla who suffered ill health visited the Askelpion in Pergamon in 214 and perhaps may have visited Aigeai on the same journey giving rise to an occasion for striking this issue.

An unusual and spectacular coin, being the finest of three known and the only example in private hands; attractive collection toning.

Four military standards. Cohen_. Gnecchi_. RIC VIII, 353, 50=Münzen und Medaillen, Basel, Auction 35, 1967, lot 143 (same dies). This appears to be only the second published example of this medallic heavy miliarense type and far superior in quality to the RIC/MM example which has a large flan crack. Spectacular quality and with lovely toning.

This type with four standard on the reverse is very unusual for the Constantinian coinage. Three standards or three palm branches are known for Constans. It is speculated in the MM catalog that the type may refer to the four sons of Constantine the Great. The fact that the two known examples are from the same set of dies would indicate a limited and special issue.

In 350, Nepotian and a small number of followers tried to regain control of Rome after Magnentius had murdered the emperor Constans and usurped power. They were successful in wresting control for a short period having killed Magnentius' praetorian prefect Anicetus and forced the urban prefecnt Titanus to withdraw from the city. Nepotian seized power and struck coins in gold and bronze at the city. However, his reign lasted for only 28 days until Magnentius countered by sending a force against him under the command of Marcellinus. The rebels were crushed and Nepotian as well as his mother Eutropia, a half-sister of Constantine, and other supporters were killed in a violent purge.
