If you're a participant in Naville's auctions, be sure to go to biddr and sign up there to be a registered bidder because they will no longer be using their old platform for future auctions.

Here's a favorite I bought at Naville.

Faustina Sr anepigraphic Ceres denarius.jpg
Faustina I, AD 138-140.
Roman AR denarius, 2.74 g, 17.6 mm, 7 h.
Rome, AD 143-145.
Obv: DIVA AVG FAVSTINA, bare-headed and draped bust, right.
Rev: Anepigraphic; Ceres, veiled and draped, standing right, holding vertical scepter in right hand and two corn-ears in left hand.
Refs: RIC 404B; BMCRE 327; Cohen 297; RCV 4602; Strack 436; CRE 79.

The coin is an double die-match to the specimen in the Museu Arqueològic de Llíria.

Dattari Collection

Egypt, Alexandria. Dattari. In the name of Livia, wife of Augustus Diobol circa 1-2 (year 31), Æ 23.5mm., 7.46g. Draped bust r. Rev. Athena standing l., holding Nike and leaning on shield; L-ΛA. Dattari-Savio Pl. 3, 60 (this coin). RPC pag. 692, 5 (this coin cited).
Very rare. Nice brown-green tone. Very Fine
From the Dattari collection.
In our opinion is correct the interpretation of Dattari on this coin and the date shown on the Rev. is L-ΛA and not LMA as suggested from RPC.
