Artemis is probably the must  busy goddess. She is the goddess  of the forest, childbirth, the moon (if Selene is in holidays ?) and of hunting, as well as the guardian of women and children. She is one of the twelve great Olympian gods, daughter of Zeus and Leto and twin sister of Apollo. Later she changed her name to  Diana.

Please post your coins of Artemis or Diana !

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?

[IMG]
Julia Mamaea, AD 222-235.
Roman provincial Æ 28.5 mm, 11.90 g, 5 h.
Ionia, Ephesus, AD 222-235.
Obv: IOVΛIA MAMAIA CЄB, draped bust, right, wearing stephane.
Rev: EΦЄCIΩN ΠΡΩTΩN ACIAC, Artemis driving biga of stags right, holding bow and drawing arrow from quiver.
Refs: RPC VI, 4975 (temporary); Karwiese 804; SNG von Aulock --; SNG Copenhagen --.
Notes: Ex-Plankenhorn Collection of Ionian Coins, ex-Naumann Auction 91, lot 927, 7 May, 2020.

And, of course, there's the Artemis of Ephesis type:


450027381_FaustinaSrAncyraEphesianArtemis.jpg.0bc46d30b07314579958f3784e3c96d8.jpg

Faustina I, AD 138-140.
Roman provincial Æ 19.4 mm, 4.2 g.
Phrygia, Ankyra, AD 138-140.
Obv: ΦΑΥϹΤЄΙΝΑ ϹЄΒΑϹΤΗ, bare-headed and draped bust, right.
Rev: ΑΝΚΥΡ-ΑΝΩΝ, cult statue of Ephesian Artemis standing facing, wearing kalathos, arms resting on supports and flanked by two stags.
Refs: RPC IV.2, 1732 (temporary); SNG Cop 139.
Notes: The Greek obverse inscription, ΦΑΥϹΤЄΙΝΑ ϹЄΒΑϹΤΗ, makes no mention of the empress' deified status and corresponds to FAVSTINA AVGVSTA, used on imperial issues from AD 139-140. Accordingly, RPC dates the coin to "early in the reign of Antoninus Pius," and suggests "c. 138-140."


1536381231_FaustinaJrAnkyraEphesianArtemis.jpg.9fe3ef24c2581a70abb06b73da62f33c.jpg

Faustina II, AD 147-175.
Roman provincial Æ 19.1 mm, 3.81 g, 7 h.
Phrygia, Ankyra, AD 147-165.
Obv: ΦΑΥϹΤЄΙΝΑ ϹЄΒΑϹΤΗ, bare-headed and draped bust, right.
Rev: ΑΝΚΥ-ΡΑΝΩΝ, cult statue of Ephesian Artemis standing facing, wearing kalathos, arms resting on supports and flanked by two stags.
Refs: RPC IV.2, 1727 (temporary); BMC 25.64,35-36; RG 5644; Sear 1774; SNG Cop 142-143; SNG von Aulock 3436; SNG Munich 99-100.
Notes: Dating this is difficult. The empress is depicted in a hairstyle used on imperial issues from 147-c. 150, but the obverse inscription corresponds to one used on imperial issues after 158. Accordingly, RPC is uncertain whether it was issued under Antoninus Pius or Marcus Aurelius.

Artemis & Demeter New Style. One of less than a handful known R5.  Left Artemis, Right demeter with the long torch. This elysian imagery is frank. A beautiful depiction of them looking for persephone in hades. How cute!

Great to see the diversity of images of Artemis in the coins presented in this thread!  Here's an Artemis that hasn't made an appearance yet: Diana (Artemis) of Massalia .

498029594_HostiliusSaserna.jpg.730475f841e02b206327763b5ce68692.jpg

Notes on this coin and others associated with Julius Caesar's Gallic Wars.  

And a rare coin of Ekkarra - a plate coin from the reference on these coins:

Artemis with Apollo Standing 246-225 BC

Artemis.jpg.1603f54bc6c4a5386163a4b6ad2f42f4.jpg

Maybe struck during the reign of Seleukos II (246-225 BC)
It most resembles a coin I found

Head of Artemis quiver behind neck. Apollo standing l., holding arrow and grounded bow.
Very worn but the pose of the figure standing is the same as best as I can tell.

These two were twin brother and sister. The father was Zeus and mother, Leto.

Artemis is the twin sister of Apollo. In most accounts, the twins are the products of an extramarital liaison.
In myth and literature, Artemis is presented as a hunting goddess of the woods, surrounded by her followers who is not to be crossed.

Apollo is the Olympian god of the sun and light, music and poetry, healing and plagues, prophecy and knowledge, order and beauty, archery and agriculture. He is harmony, reason and moderation personified, a perfect blend of physical superiority and moral virtue.

Apollo is the only major god who appears with the same name in both Greek and Roman mythology. Artemis would be known as Diana in Roman mythology.

Both Artemis and Apollo had used golden bows and were expert archers.

So many nice coins !! Congratulations !!

 

@ambr0zie, I like your Trajan and the explantion😁 and the Hosidius C. f. Geta is on my want list for a long time.

@Roman Collector: Faustina as expected 🙂. I also have a similar  Ephesos biga from the same family (Geta)

normal_Geta_02.jpg.e4e2108d3a3fc737ee7b0e376319742b.jpg

 

@NewStyleKing. Nice Tets. I had bid on a New Style tetradrachm with Artemis not too long ago, but the price went through the roof.🙁

@Curtisimo: I love the Faustina

@Steve: Wonderful coins, but the Magnetes example is a real beauty

@Sulla80: The L. Hostilius Saserna is for years on my want list but examples as yours are really expensive

@thenickelguy: Nice coin, I have a similar type

Magnesia ad Maeandrum Ar  Stephanophoric Tetradrachm 160-150 BC Obv  Bust of Artemis right draped wearing stephane. Bow and quiver over far shoulder. Rv. Apollo Delphios standing left leaning on tripod,all within laurel wreath. Jones 10 16.83 grms 31 mm Photo by W. Hansen1362827137_magnesia5(2).jpg.6e68f38131f6bf3bf1ff71049c9ea93b.jpgI have always been impressed with the so called stephanophorii. They appear to have been created as a transfer currency, converting the cistophorii of Pergamon to the Attic weight tetradrachms favored by the rest of the Hellenic world. However as numbers appear to be found in Syria it would appear that these are also a form of coinage of convenience by which the Kings of Pergamon can intervein in Seleukid affairs without seeming to do so.

I love the many representations of Artemis/Diana. Any deity that had an entourage of nymphs following her is tops in my book.

Why is the cult statue so different than the normal representation?

Great thread with some amazing coins so far!

It's hard not to have a crush on Artemis. Beautiful, athletic while still curvy, likes the outdoors, is a goddess whoes never been laid, oh, and she wants nothing to do with me... or any mortal male for that matter:

Cites is Lower Moesia often put Diana/Artemis on coins. Here are coins of Macrinus (reigned 16 months in 217-218) and his son Diadumenian. Both have Diana right, about to draw an arrow from her quiver with her hound racing right behind her.

WOW. More nice coins. 

 

 

@kapphnwn : What a beautiful coin. I am jealous. 

 

@AncientOne : although worn I really like the Thyateiracoin and the unusual "seen from behind" depiction.

 

@Ryro : Nice coins. What is the last one ?

 

@Spaniard : Small but nice. Very similar to my example

Sicily, Syracuse Æ Hemi-litron reign of King Agathokles ca. 317-289 BC

album_pic.jpg.a1a2dec2481fe2aa0c282113100e5e17.jpg

 

This hemi-litron was issued during the reign of Agathokles from ca. 317-289 BC and portrays an image of Artemis or Diana, the Goddess of War -notice her quiver of arrows behind her neck. The legend Soteira translates as "saviour" The winged thunderbolt on the reverse with the monarchs' Agathokles name and title is a famous design

@shanxi, I also have a half-dozen Roman Republican and Imperial coins depicting Diana, but I didn't get the impression you wanted to see those.
