So what did I buy?


Recommended Posts


So this weekend I picked up a Commodus for my collection at the Aquila auction. I checked back in on the bidding a couple hours later and saw that they were up to the lots. On a whim, I entered the minimum 20 EUR bid on the lot shown below and won. All of these coins are unfamiliar to me. Can anyone provide some idea on what I actually purchased? This is the only image provided by the auction house. I've numbered them for ease of reference.

Nice! No. 1 is some sort of Byzantine silver. 3 appears to be an archaic Greek silver fraction (along with 4 and 7?) 

Others here will be able to help further. Although without a photo of the opposite sides it may be difficult to pinpoint ID.
