Nero Aureus with Jupiter


Mucius Scaevola
 Share

Recommended Posts

My newest acquisition is this beautiful (my opinion, ofc) Nero Aureus, 7.32g Ex Jesus Vico & Ex NAC (maybe there are other provenances, but for now it's those 2)

Despite some marks on the surface I love the preservation and the nice, well centered strike. The remaining beard is a nice detail.

They are not rare but always quite expensive in this condition. The picture is savage because it shows every mark. Nicer in hand (everyone says this about his coins, I guess 😛 )

It isn't my collecting area but as I got absolutely destroyed while bidding on a rare Trajan Pater aureus, I had to fill the hole in my heart.

Now, show me your Nero or Jupiter coins! I'd like to see some provincials, too 😎

Your "consolation prize" Nero aureus is more likely a first place than runner-up.  Congratulations.

I have the denarius equivalent of your aureus as part of my "mint set" of Nero.

Well.. your coins beat it by far. Amazing! The Ostia sestertius is an absolutely dream coin. And the Aureus is perfect! I love them and this is exactly what I mean.

 

If you want to write your address and working hours here - just do it. You know..just in case someone wants to send an appreciation card.. 😉

I'm jealous, and that's well deserved.

Thanks for showing them to us.

Like @Mucius Scaevola I have one of these Aurei as well.

Nero Av Aureus 66-67 AD Obv Head right laureate Rv. Jupiter seated left holding thunderbolt and scepter RIC 63 7.33 grms 18 mm Boscoreale Hoard found April 13 1895 Photo by W. Hansenneroav2.jpg.00f026b4bcd9627ac993f78d15d6d33a.jpg

Out of the roughly 1000 coins recorded from this hoard 212 are of the Nero-IVPPITER CUSTOS type making it by far the most common type found in this hoard.
