Richiesta bibliografica: Tolomei.

Risposte migliori

Caio Ottavio

Salve a tutti.

Mi rivolgo a voi, sperando di aver centrato la sezione giusta ;) , per chiedervi dei consigli e/o aiuti riguardanti un ambito che, solitamente, non tratto molto. In pratica, sto facendo uno studio sulla monetazione di Tolomeo XII Aulete e, come capirete, mi occorrerebbe sapere se, oltre allo Svoronos, al BMC Ptolemy e a vari articoletti storici ci sono altri testi o articoli (sia storici che numismatici) da cui trarre ulteriori notizie. Insomma, se potete consigliarmi della bibliografia di settore, sia sui Tolomei in generale che su questo specifico sovrano. In ultimo, ho visto che lo Svoronos è, ovviamente, scritto in greco: non esistono delle traduzioni?

Grazie in anticipo e scusate per la "raffica" di domande. :D

Forse hai già questo elenco. In ogni caso...

The following titles serve to correct erroneous regnal and mint attributions in Svoronos, as well as other untenable ideas. No attempt has been made to include the many publications which describe new varieties unknown to Svoronos.

GENERAL

1. Otto Mørkholm and Anne Kromann, SNG Copenhagen, vol. 41: Egypt: The Ptolemies (Copenhagen, 1974). Best general catalogue of Ptolemaic coins currently accessible to most numismatists, but many regnal and mint attibutions require revision.

2. Otto Mørkholm, Early Hellenistic Coinage (Cambridge, 1991), pp. 63–70, 101–111. Useful overview of Ptolemaic coinage to about 200 B.C., especially valuable for reconstructions of the bronze currency systems of Ptolemy II and Ptolemy II.

3. R.A. Hazzard, Ptolemaic Coins: An Introduction for Collectors (Toronto, 1995). Overview of Ptolemaic coinage to end of dynasty, treated as a series of special topics. See also the review by C. Lorber, AJN 7–8 (1995–96), pp. 256–276.

PTOLEMY I

4. Orestes H. Zervos, “The early tetradrachms of Ptolemy I,” MN 13 (1967), pp. 1–15. Chronology of the earliest tetradrachms of Ptolemy I to about 310 B.C., including Alexandrine, Alexander/Zeus, and the high-relief Attic-weight Alexander/Athena Promachos types.

5. Brooks Emmons, “The overstruck coinage of Ptolemy I,” MN 6 (1954), pp. 69–83. Overstrikes prove sequence of different tetradrachm types, demonstrate recall of old coinage.

6. Orestes H. Zervos, “The Delta hoard of Ptolemaic ‘Alexanders,’” MN 21 (1976), pp. 37–58. Die study of the low-relief reduced-weight Alexander/Athena Promachos tetradrachms, with analysis of engravers and chronological conclusions.

7. G.K. Jenkins, “An early Ptolemaic hoard from Phacous,” MN 9 (1960), pp. 17–37. Overview of silver coinage of entire reign of Ptolemy I, including different types, weight standards, and approximate dates.

PTOLEMY I – EARLY REIGN OF PTOLEMY III

8. Alain Davesne and Georges Le Rider, Gulnar II: Le Trésor de Meydancikkale (Ciicie Trachée, 1980) (Paris, 1989), Ch. IV. “Les Ptolémées.” Mint attibution, metrological analysis, and proposed dating for Ptolemy/eagle tetradrachms to early years of Ptolemy III.

9. I. Varoucha-Christodoulopoulos, “Les témoignages numismatiques sur la guerre Chrémonidienne,” Congresso Internazionale di Numismatica 1961 (Roma, 1965), pp. 225, 226. Find of Ptolemy II bronzes with shield near Athens places their issue before end of Chremonidian War in 262 B.C.

10. A. Davesne, “Une contremarque au trident sur certaines monnaies de Ptolémée II Philadelphe,” BSFN 42/2 (February 1987), pp. 145–149. Trident countermark applied in Cyprus to revalidate bronzes demonetized by reform of c. 265 B.C.

Corpus of Phoenician and Palestinian gold octadrachms of Arsinoe II to 242/1; stylistic comparison establishes approximate dates for her Alexandrian gold octadrachms and silver decadrachms, whose obverse letters are shown not to represent dates as believed by Svoronos.

12. Otto Mørkholm, “A group of Ptolemaic coins from Phoenicia and Palestine,” INJ 4 (1980), pp. 4–7. Reattribution of a small group (including Svor. 701–704, 757, 785–786, 794, and 821) from year 23 of Ptolemy II to year 23 of Ptolemy III.

THIRD-CENTURY BRONZE COINS

13. M. Jessop Price, Ch. 11, “The Coins,” in The Anubieion at Saqqara I (London, 1988), pp. 66–76. Hoard of large bronzes clarifies sequence of bronze emissions of Ptolemy II and III.

17. Otto Mørkholm, “The Ptolemaic ‘coins of an uncertain era,’” NNÅ 1975–76, pp. 23–58. Series of dated tetradrachms and didrachms imitative of Ptolemaic types attributed to Aradus (but see Hazzard, Ptolemaic Coins, p. 34 for an alternate interpretation).

18. Otto Mørkholm, “The portrait coinage of Ptolemy V. The main series,” Essays Thompson, pp. 203–214. Coinage minted in Phoenicia and Palestine during Fifth Syrian War.

19. R.A. Hazzard, “A review of the Cyprus hoard, 1982,” NC forthcoming. Cypriote silver didrachms of Dionysiac type and minors with royal portraits began under Ptolemy V.

20. Otto Mørkholm and Anne Kromann, “The Ptolemaic silver coinage on Cyprus, 192/1–164/3 B.C.,” Chiron 14 (1984), pp. 149–165. Die study, mostly of dated tetradrachms with mintmarks, but die link also attaches Svor. 1302–1305 to Paphos.

21. M. Jessop Price, Appendix J, “The Coins,” in The Sacred Animal Necropolis at N. Saqqara (London, 1981), pp. 156–165. Hoards offer valuable evidence for sequence of bronze emissions of Ptolemy V.

27. T. V. Buttrey, Excavations at Cyrene: The Coins from the Demeter Sanctuary (University of Pennsylvania, forthcoming). Excavation coins provide overview of Ptolemaic bronze coinage in Cyrene, much of which has been misattributed to Cyprus. For a less detailed treatment, see Buttrey, Studies Grierson, p. 23 n.1.

28. Ino Nicolaou, Paphos II: The Coins from the House of Dionysus (Nicosia, 1990). Excavation coins help to identify Cypriote issues. Unfortunately, the book is available in only a few major libraries.

Ptolemy XII Regains His Throne

post-703-0-86200300-1405108981_thumb.jpg

.

PTOLEMAIC KINGS of EGYPT. Ptolemy XII Neos Dionysos (Auletes). Restored, 55-51 BC. AR Tetradrachm (27mm, 10.69 g, 12h). Alexandreia mint. Dated RY 28 (54/3 BC) . Diademed head of Ptolemy I right, wearing aegis / Eagle standing left on thunderbolt; L KH (date) and headdress of Isis in left field, ΠA to right. Svoronos 1837; SNG Copenhagen 395. Superb EF, toned. High quality silver on a choice flan, well centered. An exceptional example of a late Ptolemaic issue.


Ptolemy XII Neos Dionysos, nicknamed Auletes (the flute-player), was a son of Ptolemy IX. In 80 BC, he succeeded Ptolemy XI to the throne of Egypt. By now Rome was the arbiter of Egyptian affairs, and annexed both Libya and Cyprus. At the height of his success in 59 BC, after paying bribes to Caesar and Pompey, a formal alliance was formed and his name inscribed into the list of friends and allies of the people of Rome. But in 58 BC Auletes was forced by the Alexandrian mob to flee to Rome. He finally recovered his throne by paying to Roman general Aulus Gabinius 10,000 talents to invade Egypt in 55 BC. Then he reigned on until he fell ill in 51 BC, when he chose his daughter Cleopatra VII as his coregent. This fine tetradrachm struck 54/3 BC apparently commemorates his restoration to the throne.

post-703-0-13227500-1405109181_thumb.jpg

PTOLEMAIC KINGS of EGYPT. Cleopatra VII Thea Neotera & Ptolemy XV (Caesarion). 44-30 BC. Æ 27mm (15.62 g, 11h). Bust of Cleopatra, as Aphrodite, right, wearing stephane, holding Caesarion, as Eros, in her arms; sceptre over Cleopatra’s shoulder / Two filleted cornucopias. Svoronos 1874; SNG Copenhagen -; RPC I 3901. VF, dark green-brown patina, light cleaning marks, minor roughness on reverse. Exceptional for issue. Very rare.

Cleopatra VII, the daughter of Ptolemy XII Auletes ("Flute Player"), upon her father’s death uneasily shared the throne with her brother Ptolemy XIII. Their sibling rivalry of these co-rulers soon involved Rome. Julius Caesar, pursuing Pompey the Great there after the battle of Pharsalus in 49 BC, found his rival executed on the orders of the young Ptolemy, who believed that such an act would endear him to Caesar. Caesar, however, was outraged; instead, he joined with Cleopatra. By the end of the year, Caesar secured for Cleopatra both the capital and sole-rulership of Egypt. In return, Cleopatra bore Caesar a son, Ptolemy XV, nicknamed Caesarion, and in 46 BC accompanied Caesar with their child to Rome to witness his triumph. During her stay there, numerous rumors circulated about their affair: some believed that the statue of Venus Genetrix in the temple of Caesar’s new forum too closely resembled the Egyptian queen, while others thought that Caesar intended to marry her outright. When Caesar was assassinated in 44 BC, Cleopatra, fearing for her own safety and that of her child, fled back to Alexandria to await the outcome of events.

In the ensuing struggle which emerged between Antony and Octavian, Cleopatra sided with Antony. Where Cleopatra’s relationship with Caesar had been more political than romantic, her relationship with Antony seemed to be one of mutual love, and she bore him twins, Cleopatra Selene and Alexander Helios. Antony’s return to Italy in 39 BC, to secure an alliance with Octavian, and his marriage to Octavian’s sister, Octavia, seriously jeopardized his relations with Cleopatra. When returned to the Egypt in 37 BC to prepare for his oncoming war with Parthia, he was forced to make numerous concessions to Cleopatra for her support. Large sections of the Eastern provinces were placed under the control of both her and her children, and, at the same time Caesarion was recognized as Caesar’s only legal heir. Such acts only fueled Octavian’s propaganda that Cleopatra had bewitched Antony and that Rome itself would be ruled from Egypt.

Antony’s defeat at Actium signalled the end of Antony and Cleopatra, as well as Cleopatra’s son, Caesarion. After Cleopatra’s suicide, Caesarion attempted to flee Egypt. He was betrayed, however, and captured. Octavian, wanting to rid himself of a troublesome rival, had him executed soon after.

Grazie nuovamente, Apollonia, per queste gradite info, certamente utili alla mia ricerca. Di particolare bellezza è il tetradramma dell'Aulete, sembra di conservazione superiore alla media.
