  1. I've heard some interesting reconstructed Greek music, but these simple lyre pieces are a bit more soothing to the ear, imo... Teos, Ionia 320-294 BC AR Diobol (10mm, 0.92g) Mentor magistrate. O: Griffin seated right, with left forepaw raised. R: Lyre; MENTΩP (magistrate) downward to right. Kinns 95; SNG Kayhan 611v; Imhoof 126A ex MRB Coins
  2. Claudius / Minerva 41-42 AD AE As (26mm, 10.22g) O: Bare head left; TI CLAVDIVS CAESAR AVG PM TR P IMP P P. R: Minerva advancing right, wielding javelin and holding shield; S-C. RIC 116 / Cohen 84 / BMC 149 / Sear 639 ex Francis J. Rath "No one is free who does not lord over himself." Next: facing head
  3. My experiences with this dealer have been such that I no longer do business there. .
  4. Yes, Bruford was there full-time live drummer for the first post-Gabriel tour (Trick of the Tail). And as much as I love him as a drummer (I saw him with Genesis, King Crimson, Yes and solo) I believe Chester Thompson was a better fit. And Phil did excellent work on Frida's first album too, playing, singing and producing. You might also get a kick out of the album he did with Cafe Jacques. ~ Peter
  5. They did 4 or 5 albums, maybe more, but Phil didn't usually tour with them. Fortunately the last time I saw them he was playing that tour. And lest people forget just what an amazing drummer Phil Collins was ( a fact often buried by his pop stardom), here is Nuclear Burn...
  6. col·lap·sar noun 1. an old star that has collapsed under its own gravity to form a white dwarf, neutron star, or black hole. Taras, Calabria 333-331/30 BC (Period IV - Archidamos and the Third Lucanian War) AR Didrachm (20mm, 7.54g) Signed by the Kal... engraver. O: Nude horseman right, wearing shield on left arm and holding two spears in left hand, preparing to thrust third spear held in right hand; |- behind, Δ before, ΚΑΛ and Δ below. R: Phalanthos astride dolphin right, holding crested helmet; stars flanking, ΤΑΡΑΣ to left, ΚΑΛ below. D'Andrea XXXII, 657; Vlasto 545; Cote 215; McGill II, 41; Evans IV, H3; HGC I, 794; HN Italy 896; SNG ANS 971; Sear 345 ex Monarch Beach Archidamos III reigned as King of Sparta from 360 BC until his death in 338. Summoned by the Tarentines to assist them in the first Lucanian war, he lead a mercenary army to Manduria in Calabria, where he fell in battle against the combined forces of the Messapians and Lucanians. The historian Diodorus suggests that the death of Archidamos and the massacre of his army was divine vengeance for his plundering of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. While Genesis was trying to decide if they were going to continue after the departure of Steve Hackett, Phil Collins started playing with anyone who would have him, and that was a lot. One of his side projects was Brand X, a sort of fusion band which I was fortunate enough to see three times. The star on this didrachm is one of a pair (the other off-flan) representing the Dioskouri.
  7. Commodus / Providentia 181-182 AD AR Denarius (17mm, 2.47g) O: Laureate head right; M COMMODV[S A]NTONINVS AVG.

  8. I love the Cascades. My wife and I used to hunt waterfalls, so we spent a lot of time exploring the mountains from Mt Shasta to Mt Baker. Being retired now my life revolves almost entirely around my boy Repo. He's an 11 year old flat coated retriever who rescued me when he was 10 months. At that time he had already been adopted and returned twice, hence the name. 🙂
  9. Polos... Nero / Hekate Philadelphia, Lydia 54-59 AD (19mm, 4.99g) O: Bare headed and draped bust right; NEPΩN ΣEBACTOC. R: Hekate standing facing, wearing polos and holding two torches; TI NEIKANOP ΦIΛAΔEΛΦEΩN. RPC 3041 "Torch-bearing Hekate holy daughter of great-bosomed Nyx." ~ Bacchylides, Fragment 1B
  10. I can't even imagine that's possible. He must be Snoop's hero.
  11. Griffin... Velia, Lucania 350-310 BC (Period VI: Kleudoros Group) AR Didrachm (21mm, 7.50g) O: Head of Athena right, wearing crested Attic helmet ornamented with griffin, swan's head at front of visor.
