  1. 🤣🤣🤣💯 At the other end here is an example of Macedonian dynasty Renaissance (in impressive piece with 30 mm diameter): Constantine IX Monomachus AD 1042-1055. Constantinople Histamenon Nomisma AV 30 mm, 4,40 g + IhS XIS RЄX RЄςNANTIҺm, Christ, nimbate, seated facing on lyre-backed throne, wearing tunic and pallium, raising His right hand in benediction and holding book of Gospels in His left, all within triple border of dots / + CωҺSτA-nτҺ bASILEЧS Rm, bust of Constantine IX facing, wearing loros and crown with pendilia, holding cruciform scepter with tendril-ornament in his right hand and globus surmounted by patriarchal cross in his left, all within triple border of dots. good very fine DOC 1a3; Sear 1828.
  2. I have beautifully toned Athens tet from pre-hoards time.
  3. I think approximately the same level of historical importance can be found in connection with empress Irene sole reign and connected to this event rising of Holy Roman Empire of Charlemagne. I have a solidus with Irene portrait and all the members of iconoclastic dynasty (also historically significant period). Unfortunately these coins also not at the top of aesthetics. Constantine VI and Irene, with Leo III, Constantine V, and Leo IV AV Solidus. Constantinople, AD 787-790. COҺSTIҺOS C' C' b' [...], Constantine V, Leo III, and Leo IV seated facing, each crowned and draped / S IRIҺI AVΓ' MI[TR], crowned facing busts of Constantine IV, draped and holding globus cruciger, and Irene, wearing loros and holding [globus cruciger] and cruciform sceptre; two crosses above, pellet between. Cf. Füeg 2 (C.2.13 (same die as illustration?)/Ir.2); DOC -; Sear 1593; Gorny & Mosch 269, 1295 (same dies). 4.39g, 20mm, 6h. Extremely Fine; areas of flatness. Rare. Second cross added erroneously.
  4. I can add to thread this attractive hyperpyron of Andronicus I. Andronicus I Comnenus AD 1183-1185. Constantinople Hyperpyron AV 29 mm, 4,30 g MP - ΘV, the Virgin Mary seated facing on throne, holding head of Christ on breast / ΑΝΔΡΟΝΙΚΟC ΔΕCΠΟΤΗC / IC - XC, Andronicus standing facing, holding labarum and globus cruciger, and being crowned by Christ standing to right. good very fine Sear 1983.
  5. This is not an easy goal for lifetime Philipp II in both, gold or silver... but, done 😃
  6. This one my favorite! I've shown this tet earlier here but it worth to be shared again and again 😍 Also can be found in gold with not a scary price if choose later Bysantion / Kalchedon mints. Mine stater is from about 190 BCE Bysantion mint.
  7. The price would strongly vary in a very wide range depending from variety, style and condition. This mine "Ptolemy as satrap" tet worth me approximately the same as Alexander's tet above.
  8. Beautiful tets @Spargrodan, congratulations! I have a tetradrachm from Babylon attributed by CNG as Struck under Archon, Dokimos, or Seleukos I, circa 323-318/7 BC.
  9. My favorite motif with animals is this one from classical time Akanthion's tetradrachm: powerful, dynamic and realistic.
  10. They are tiny: about 10 mm diameter and weight of mine example 1,74 grams.

  13. I can add one from the time of reign of Ptolemy I with his portrait. AV triobol or tetarta from Alexandria mint.
  14. Superb example! Congratulations! On my taste this type coins are one of the bests among the types with a city view and "must have" for your collection. And ofcourse you own it! 👍
  15. Dear @rNumis, thank you very much! Now provenance confirmed, my coin really originates from Brand's collection and for today it is most fabulous and old provenance in my collection. Thank you very much again!
