Al diritto di questa moneta probabile ritratto di Amilcare Barca, padre di Annibale, raffigurato nell'illustrazione di fantasia allegata.

Carthago Nova. Time of Hannibal, c. 221-208 BC. AR Double Shekel (14.7g) struck c. 220 BC. Minted at Carthago Nova, ca. 220 BC. Laureate, bearded head left of Herakles-Melqart(?), the strongly Semitic features suggesting Hamilcar Barca (father of Hannibal), with heavy, knotted club over far shoulder. Reverse : Mahout wearing long cloak and cap(?), holding goad in right hand, and riding African elephant right. CNH 13 (same dies ); Gulbenkian 389 (same dies ); Robinson, Essays-Mattingly , 6a ( same dies ). Boldly struck in high relief and well centered. A powerful portrait of the finest style of the period. Probably the finest known specimen . Superb Extremely Fine. .
Rome's success in the First Punic War (241 BC) and the subsequent uprising of the former Punic allies in North Africa (the Libyan Revolt) forced the Carthaginians to reassess their formerly dominant position in the western Mediterranean region. Hamilcar Barca, a member of a noted aristocratic family of Carthage, made his eldest son Hannibal swear a sacred oath to "never be a friend of Rome." The family then moved to Spain "to call a new world into existence to redress the balance of the old." Here Hamilcar began preparations for an attack on the Roman Republic, but he was not destined to live to see the fulfillment of his plans. His son-in-law and successor Hasdrubal (228-221 BC), the founder of Carthago Nova, continued the work, and in 218/217 BC Hannibal was ready to launch the invasion into Italy. Rome was totally unprepared for a wintertime attack from the north, and, thus, the epic story of Hannibal's crossing of the Alps with a contingent of elephants has become the stuff of legend. In the ensuing fifteen-year war, Hannibal ultimately failed to bring about the destruction of the Roman Republic, but of all Rome's opponents he came closest to overthrowing the state that was to dominate the Mediterranean region over the following six hundred years. This silver double shekel is one of the rarest and most remarkable types of the Barcid coinage. The bearded head of Melkart was interpreted by Robinson as a portrait of Hamilcar, father of Hannibal and founder of the dynasty in Spain.
Estimated Value $70,000 - 80,000.
Provenance: The Hunter Collection; Purchased from Ed Waddell at NYINC in 1990s.

Tribes of Thrace, the Dentheletae Æ21. Late 5th Century BC. Head of Dionysos left, wearing ivy wreath / ΔΑΝΤΗΛΗΤΩΝ, warrior charging right with sword, holding shield in defensive position. Prokopov, Turnovo 2012, 143-173, 144 ff. and Plate. 1 No. 5. Further examples recorded in: A. Topalov, Urban Bronze Coins of small Denomination from the Propontis Area, Sofia 2005, Nr. 59; Ägyptische, griechische, etruskische, römische Altertümer: Sammlung Prof. Dr. Ernst Pfuhl, Basel; Sammlung Dr. Philipp Lederer, Lugano und anderer Besitz; Vasen, Terrakotten, Bronzen, Marmorfiguren und -reliefs, Gläser, Schmuck; Auction in Luzern, Wednesday, 21. Mai 1941. Luzern, Galerie Fischer 1941 (1941) 169. 15.41g, 20mm, 8h.

Round regular flan, well centred, Good Very Fine. Extremely Rare. 

One of the most powerful Thracian tribes, the Dentheletae ruled the upper Strymon valley, far from the coast and centres of Hellenistic culture.
This interesting piece clearly shows that despite this, the tribe had contact with Hellenistic influences and that it absorbed and assimilated them. Indeed, Livy attested that the Dentheletae were allies of Philip V of Macedon (Ab Urbe Condita, Book XL, pp22), though this was not to save them from Hellenistic warmongering: he plundered their lands for supplies in 214 BC during the First Macedonian War. 

Estimate: 3000 GBP

CELTS IN CENTRAL GAUL. The Aedui. Litavicos. Mid-first century BC. Silver quinarius (1.60 gm). Aeduan Warrior series. Draped bust right, quiver behind, scepter before / LIT [A], horseman galloping right, holding boar standard. DT 5072. CCCBM II 487, S387 = SNG Lewis 22. Scheers, Danicourt, 119. A few minor deposits. Nearly extremely fine
Although historically allies of the Romans, the Aedui were not uniformly supportive of Caesar in his effort to quell the Vercingetorix-led Gallic insurgency. One young Aeduan nobleman, Litavicos, so espoused the cause of Gallic freedom that he resorted to deception to turn the loyalty of 10,000 troops under his command away from Caesar and toward Vercingetorix. Litavicos broadcast false stories of a Roman massacre of an Aeduan cavalry force as well as the execution of Aeduan leaders and, so, triggered an anti-Roman rebellion throughout Aeduan territory. Rumors of Roman atrocities persisted even after the appearance of the nobles said to have been killed, and large contingents of Aeduan forces went over to Vercingetorix. The prototype of the obverse of this coin is either the denarius of M. Plaetorius M.f. Cestianus or the drachm of Massalia featuring the bust of Artemis. 
Estimated Value: $ 600

Commentaires sur l'état de conservation : Flan large et complet des deux côtés. Le champ a été légèrement gratté au droit. Très joli revers de style fin. N° dans les ouvrages de référence : C.221  - RIC.31  - BMC/RE.33  - BN/R.38  - WCN.13
Titulature avers : NERO. CAESAR. AVG. IMP..
Description avers : Tête nue de Néron à droite (O°).
Traduction avers : “Nero C
وsar Augustus Imperator”, (Néron césar auguste empereur).
Titulature revers : PONTIF MAX - TR P VIII COS IIII PP ; dans le champ EX - SC.
Description revers : Mars (Rome) debout à droite casqué et vêtu militairement, le pied gauche posé sur un casque, tenant des deux mains un bouclier rond (votif) ; dans le champ à droite une épée et un bouclier posés au sol.

Traduction revers : “Pontifex Maximus Tribunicia Potestate octavus Consul quartus, Pater Patriو/ Ex Senatus Consulto”, (Grand pontife, revêtu de la huitième puissance tribunitienne consul pour la quatrième fois père de la patrie/ Avec l’accord du Sénat). 
Commentaire à propos de cet exemplaire : Même coin de droit que l’exemplaire du Cabinet des médailles de la BnF (n° 38 = Giard, Lyon n° 27/1a, pl. 19, A/146).
Commentaires : Ce monnayage est attribué par J.-B. Giard à Lyon dans son catalogue du Cabinet des Médailles de la Bibliothèque Nationale. Ce type de revers commémore les victoires de Corbulon en Orient, en particulier sur l'Arménie et Tigrane après la prise de Tigranocerta en 59. Le bouclier pourrait être votif, 'clipeus virtutis'. Cet aureus est rare car frappé avant la Réforme de 64 qui modifie la taille de l'aureus du 43e au 45e de livre (poids théorique 7,55 g contre 7,22 g).

Historique : Néron est certainement l'un des empereurs les plus connus, grâce à Tacite et à Suétone, mais aussi l'un des plus décriés. C'est le dernier représentant de la dynastie Julio-Claudienne. Fils d'Agrippine, la seconde femme de Claude, et de Cneius Domitius Ahenobarbus, il est né en 37. Il descend à la fois d'Auguste par sa mère et de Julie par son grand-père maternel, Germanicus. Après l'assassinat de Claude par Agrippine avec l'aide de Locuste en 54, âgé de 17 ans, il commence son règne sous de bons auspices. Aidé de Sénèque, son précepteur, et de Burrus, préfet du Prétoire, il gouverne intelligemment avec le Sénat. Il a épousé Octavie, la fille de Claude et de Messaline. Le frère d'Octavie, Britannicus, meurt dans des conditions mystérieuses en 55 après J.-C. (empoisonné ?).
Après le 'quinquennum aureum' (54-59), l'empereur fait ou laisse assassiner sa mère. Les neuf dernières années du règne vont déstabiliser le principat.

CILICIA, Mallos. Circa 385-333 BC. AR Stater (10.20 g, 2h). Bearded head of Herakles right, lion's skin tied around neck / MAL, head of satrap (Tiribazos or Autophradates?) right, wearing Persian headdress. SNG Levante 153 var. (no ethnic); SNG Levante Suppl. 25 (same obv. die); SNG France 396 (same dies); Winzer 10.4 (Tiribazos) var. (same); SNG Copenhagen -; BMC 28; SNG von Aulock 5716 var. (shield on obv.). EF, small die break in field on obverse. Beautifully engraved dies (see Triton VII, lot 298, for another EF example from these dies that realized $12,000). ($5000)
Winzer's attribution to Tiribazos is based on the similarity of this coin's portrait to others bearing that satrap's name. However, SNG France dates this issue to circa 380 BC, and SNG Levante to circa 380-360 BC. Since both of these dates fall after the conclusion of Tiribazos' tenure as satrap in 385 BC (see below), and this issue has the city ethnic rather than Tiribazos' name, it is difficult to assign this issue to him. Winzer's own conclusion about the satrapal portrait on his 10.4, which he calls an "idealisiertes Satrapenportrait," further undercuts the attribution to Tiribazos. Given Levante’s dating of this issue it is possible that the portrait is of Autophradates (see below), or perhaps an idealized portrait of the great king himself in satrapal garb (cf. the Alexander Mosaic at Herculaneum)In 401 BC, Tiribazos was the governor of the western portion of Armenia and the subordinate of Orontes, the satrap of all Armenia (Anabasis 4.4.4). He was a central figure in the negotiations between Persia and Sparta that resulted in the treaty of Antalkidas in 387 BC. The following year Tiribazos was appointed to command the Persian fleet against Evagoras of Cyprus. Although successful, Tiribazos incurred the enmity of the expedition’s infantry commander, the same Orontes who had been his superior in Armenia, and was recalled in 385 BC. Tiribazos was acquitted of the charges and, in addition, he was promised the hand of the king’s daughter, Amastris. The king, however, broke his word, and, in retaliation, shortly thereafter, Tiribazos convinced the king’s son, Darius, to revolt. Foiled in this revolt, Tiribazos, now a fugitive, attempted to avoid capture but was killed (Plut. Artax. 27-29).Autophradates distinguished himself in the Great Satraps Revolt (365-360 BC) by supporting Artaxerxes II and imprisoning the satrap of Lydia and Ionia, Artabazos (Dem. Aristoc. 671). Although he was not in direct control of Mallos, his portrait may still have been employed on coinage there if, acting under the Great King’s authority, he required money from the city’s mint (similar to the issues of Phanabazos at Tarsos). In 333 BC, Autophradates, along with his fellow-commander, Pharnabazos, took over the Persian fleet and completed the seige of Mytilene begun by Memnon. In the Greek revolts which arose in the Aegean and western Asia Minor as a result of Alexander III’s victories, Autophradates tried to return these areas to Persian control (Arrian, Anab. 2.1; Arist. Pol. 2.4.10). Little else is known of his subsequent career, although it is possible that he was among those satraps who presented themselves before Alexander at Zadracarta (Arrian, Anab. 3.23).
Estimate: $5000

Description

Hadrian. 117-138 AD. Aureus, 7.41g. Rome, c. 129-31 AD. Obv: HADRIANVS - AVGVSTVS Bare-headed bust right, with fold of cloak on front shoulder and wrapped around neck at back. Rx: COS - III P P Bare-headed emperor in military dress standing left, raising right hand and holding spear in left; to left, two standards topped respectively by eagle and by wreath above an emblem inscribed V; to right, a third standard, topped by a banner which is also inscribed V. Calico 1240 (this coin). BM 530 note. Glasgow 180, pl. 23 (same dies). Cohen 485 (60 Fr.). RIC 204. Virtually Mint State.
Ex Leu 48, 10 May 1989, lot 350. Ex Santamaria, 1950, Magnaguti III, lot 378.
On another similar aureus reverse die, coupled with a younger, curly-haired portrait on the obverse, BM 530, pl. 57.13, there is also a V on the banner at the top of the standard to the right of the emperor, as can be seen on a plaster cast of that coin in C. Clay's possession. The meaning of the V on the standards in this type, which was first noticed by C. Clay while cataloguing this coin, is revealed by H. Dressel's observation, in his work on the Roman medallions in Berlin, p. 12, that one of the standards carried by the imperial galley on a sestertius of Hadrian from the same issue, BM 1391, pl. 84.13, bears the fuller inscription COH / V PR, so designates the standards as being those of the fifth Praetorian cohort. Evidently that cohort served as Hadrian's personal bodyguard both on land and at sea during his second great tour of the empire, which lasted from 128 until about 132 AD, and so received the honor of being preferentially named on the coins! The date of our aureus, c. 129-131 AD, derives from C. Clay's unpublished research into the chronology of Hadrian's Roman coinage; Mattingly, BM, p. cxlii, dated this issue too late (c. 132-4 AD). Hill, Undated Coins, no. 409, dated our aureus about right, to 129 AD, but his theory of a posthumous issue of aurei of Hadrian struck by Antoninus Pius during the struggle over Hadrian's deification in 138, showing a young, curly-haired portrait of the emperor and also including the type of the emperor standing with a standard marked V (BM 530, see above), must be rejected. That aureus too must be dated on the basis of its legend form to c. 129-131 AD.
Estimate: US$20000

CELTIC, Britain. Catuvellauni & Trinovantes. Cunobelin. Circa 10-41 AD. AR Unit (1.23 gm). Two Leaves Type.
Estimate $500
CELTIC, Britain.
John Evans says the obverse ‘seems to be formed of two ivy(?) leaves with berries on either side’ (Coins of the Ancient Britons, pg. 567). Quite possibly. The evergreen ivy plant is famously long-lived. Maybe this coin, which Dr. P. de Jersey suggests is a late issue, celebrates the long life and/or long reign of Cunobelin. On the other hand, the leaves could be vine leaves (cf. Verica’s Vine Leaf staters).
From the Matthew Rich Collection. Ex Classical Numismatic Group 43 (24 September 1999), lot 2967.
Catuvellauni & Trinovantes. Cunobelin. Circa 10-41 AD. AR Unit (1.23 gm). Two Leaves Type. Two leaves with two back-to-back crescents, CV N[O] across, beaded border / Celtic warrior on horse rearing right, sword in right hand, CAM on exergual line, beaded border. Hobbs 1866-67; Van Arsdell 2047; SCBC 304. Good VF, toned, small edge chip, clear leaves, sharp warrior, well ornamented. Very rare. ($500)

Nel IV e V secolo le  truppe che seguono da vicino l'Imperatore chiamate "Candidati" vestono tuniche ed armi dal livello di decori in sintonia con quelle dell'imperatore stesso . Sono spesso di origine Germanica e portano lunghi capelli tagliati in una maniera che diverrà comune per tutto il Medio Evo, il viso è sbarbato in un momento storico che ricerca i persi valori estetici della Romanità .

Maiorianus, AR 1/2 Siliqua
Maiorianus (457-461 AD). AR 1/2 Siliqua (12-13 mm, 0.70 g), uncertain mint in Northern Gaul.
Obv. D N MAIORIANVS C, pearl-diademed, draped and cuirassed bust right.
Rev. VITO-CCC (retrograde), Victory standing left, holding long cross.
Ex. *•*
RIC X 2651 var. (obverse legend).
Extremely rare. Old edge chip but stable, otherwise, nicely toned and very fine.
This coin belongs to a very rare issue of half siliquae attributed to a Gaulish mint due to its known find spots (France and Switzerland). It is likely that it was struck by the magister militum per gallias, Aegidius, who ruled in the name of Majorian over the parts of Gaul that were still under Roman control. When Ricimer murdered Majorian in 461, Aegidius, controlling the remains of the Gaulish army, established an independent rule in Northern Gaul before he was himself murdered in 464/465. His son and successor Syagrius remained in control of a small area around the city of Novidunum (Soissons) until as late as 486/487, thus constituting the last remnant of Roman Rule in the Northwest before it was conquered by the Frankish king Clovis.
