Hi all... thought this section needed a first post.  How about this cool rebel against the Empire then? 😄 It's probably the favorite amongst my few acquisitions this year.

I love that reverse type! I love it, @zumbly!

I have many Artemis and Diana coins, but this is my favorite.

Is there anything cooler than Artemis doing a drive by shooting in a stag biga?

That is a a really cool Postumus / DIANA, Mr. Z!  Wow, really cool! Nice find, congrats!

One of my favorites from a REBEL CITY... and Diana with a PIG!
