Glad to see a fresh place for ancient coin discussions!


Recommended Posts

Just as it was on Coin Talk, I won't contribute much here, but I sure love to see and hear about everyone's coins. It's going to be nice to do it in a place like this, without a blowhard Admin like the one at Coin Talk with the enormous ego...ugh.


I'll bring Julia Domna to the "first post" dance:

Great that you joined this place, a refuge (or at least a respite) From the CT shenanigans. I recently bought a Domna with Isis holding the infant Horus on the reverse (or Harpocrates), a Roman era syncretization, translated as Horus-the-Child (her-pa-chered in Egyptian).
