AncientNumis Posted August 4, 2022 · Member Share Posted August 4, 2022 (edited) Hi everyone, I haven't been very active on this forum for a while, sorry. The 28th of July was my birthday, and I saw that there was a Roma auction on that day, so I participated in the hopes of getting some nice ancients for myself 🙂! Although I didn't win all the lots I bid on, I did manage to get a few coins. These are pretty budget pieces, but I love them, and they could be the beginning of a sub-collection composed of Corinthian fractions for me. As for how I managed to get these so quickly, I was able to pick them up from the Auction house. Lot of 7 Corinthia, Corinth AR Fractions. Includes types as HGC 4, 1888, 1896, 1897 and 1900. (95 Pounds Hammer) This was my main purchase. A lot of 7 different fractions, with a variety of types. 2 of these date to roughly 550-500 BC, making them some of my oldest ancient coins. I love the trident type, but my favourite might have to be the 2nd coin in the top row, the pegasus is really nice on it, especially on the reverse. Corinthia, Corinth AR Hemidrachm. Circa 345-307 BC. Forepart of Pegasos flying to left, key symbol below / Head of Aphrodite to right. BCD Corinth 180 = HGC 4, 1876. 1.27g, 13mm, 9h. Near Very Fine. Rare. (40 Pounds from Roma shop)After the auction, I decided to get one more coin. This was bought from the Unsolds section, as it wasn't bid on during the auction. It's a simple hemidrachm, featuring the forepart of pegasus flying, as well as Aphrodite. And here they are in hand (my hand is pretty small, so they'll probably seem a bit bigger than you might expect): Post your pegasi Coins!
