New Stock Ancient Coins 14 January 2021

Normally I would've kept these at the shop, at least for a while (I selected some of these with a client in mind), but since the shop is not open (for appointments only) and because this is the very first ancient coins update of the year, and yes, also because we have been selling them rather well on our website, I'm going to make them available to you: our collectors online... I guess one person's loss is another person's gain, right?

So make the best of it my friend! Because I'm giving you the opportunity to stay at home and spend some quality time investigating ancient ships craftsmanship with a Stater from Phaselis, Lycia. A Chance to reflect on how Ptolemy legitimised an entire dynasty of Greek Kings in Egypt by stealing Alexander's sarcophagus, with a Tetradrachm minted in his name. I'm inviting you to study the politics and wars of Ancient Rome with a Denarius minted during the time of the war of Octavian against Marc Anthony. Before Octavian became Augustus and took Rome from a city of brick to a city of marble.

There are worse ways of spending a lockdown if you ask me...

As per usual, there's only one coin of each available, so have a good look at our offering and be quick to the checkout page.

Good luck...
