I tre fratelli olimpici ritratti sulle monete

35 risposte in questa discussione

Salve

Mi riferisco a Zeus, Poseidone e Ade, rispettivamente il dio della terra, il dio del mare e il dio dell’oltretomba.

58f79d924a461_Tredivinit.JPG.40be2b3a849cce3b385e0b3656bf68a1.JPG

Zeus è senza dubbio quello dei tre raffigurato con maggior frequenza e uno dei ritratti più suggestivi si trova su questo rarissimo statere di Alessandro il Molosso, lo zio materno di Alessandro Magno.

Triton XIX, Lot: 110. Estimate $100000. Sold for $95000.

KINGS of EPEIROS. Alexander. 350-330 BC. AV Stater (17mm, 8.53 g, 2h). Tarentum mint. Struck circa 334-332 BC. Bearded head of Zeus Dodonaios right, wearing wreath of oak leaves / AΛEΞANΔPO[Y] [T]OY NEOΠTOΛEMO[Y], horizontal thunderbolt; above, spearhead right. Vlasto, Alexander, Group C, Type 4; R. R. Holloway, “Alexander the Molossian and the Attic Standard in Magna Graecia,” in La circulazione della moneta ateniese in sicilia e in magna grecia. Atti del I convegno del centro internazionale di studi numismatici, Napoli 5-8 Aprile 1967 (Rome, 1969), pl. XI, 7 = Vlasto, Or, pl. IE, 16 = ACGC 686 = Traité IV 329 = BMC 1; Hunterian 1. Good VF, light marks in fields, a few edge bumps. Extremely rare, one of four known, and the only piece not in a public collection.

Ex J. William Middendorf II Collection (Christie’s New York, 30 November 1990), lot 42; Classical Numismatic Auctions 1 (1 May 1987), lot 46.
 

This coin is the only genuine stater of Alexander the Molossian to have been offered for sale over the past 75 years; the Leu 52 piece was withdrawn as a modern forgery.
 

Alexander the Molossian, in 334 BC, was invited by Tarentum to defend the city against the Samnites, Brettii, and Lucani of central Italy. While Alexander accepted their appeal, the true purpose for his intervention was to extend his dominion in the West just as his namesake, the king of Macedon, was establishing a great empire in the East. After initial successes, his career was abruptly terminated in 330 BC beneath the walls of Pandosia where he perished in battle against the Bruttians, much to the relief of the Tarentine Republic. Alexander honored Zeus of Dodona, the central deity of the Molossians, on his coins. The sanctuary of Zeus Naïos at Dodona was reputed to be the oldest Greek oracle, and was known to Homer.

Restando sull’oro, questa dramma della Triton VII ci offre una bella immagine del volto del dio del mare.

58f79f4856e7d_Poseidone650033.jpg.2c85ae02594db6bd391d939f7f9fe987.jpg

BRUTTIUM, The Brettii. Time of the Second Punic War. Circa 221-201 BC. AV Drachm (4.25 gm). Attic standard. Struck circa 213-205 BC. Bearded head of Poseidon left, wearing taenia, trident behind; dolphin below / BRETTIWN, hippocamp right on which Amphitrite is seated left, holding Eros in extended right hand, who stands left drawing a bow; star to right, tiny G (engraver's signature) at feet of Eros. Scheu II G.7; SNG ANS 14 var. (murex; signature on obverse); SNG Lloyd 539 (same dies); SNG Copenhagen -; Jameson 403 var. (symbols; no signature); Gulbenkian 118 var. (cornucopiae on reverse); Pozzi -; Weber 952 var. (symbols; no signature); HN Italy 1951. EF. Extremely rare. [See color enlargement on plate 1] ($20,000)

From the James A. Ferrendelli Collection. Ex George & Robert Stevenson Collection (Classical Numismatic Group XXVI, 11 June 1993), lot 19; Jean Vinchon (Monte Carlo, 13 April 1985) lot 55.

Artistically, this coin is one of the loveliest of all Greek coinage. Inspired by the Pyrrhic silver prototype depicting the sea-nymph Thetis on a hippocamp as she contemplates the shield of her son Achilles, this Bruttian creation pairs Poseidon on the obverse with his consort Amphitrite and substitutes an Eros for the shield. In early literature this piece was dated to around 282 BC since it copied the main theme of a Pyrrhic type, but later study has placed this issue in the Second Punic War as it shares the engraver's mark G with certain Carthaginian silver issues.

Bellissimo ritratto di Poseidone.

Macedonia
Antigonos II Doson, King of Macedon, 229-221
Estimate: CHF 7'500.00
Tetradrachm (Silver, 17.02 g 4), Amphipolis, 228 (or, perhaps, Corinth, c. 224-223). Head of Poseidon to right, wearing wreath of seaweed. Rev. Apollo seated to left on prow, holding bow in his right hand; below, ornamental trident and . Du Chastel 209 (same obverse die). I. L. Merker, The Silver Coinage of Antigonos Gonatas and Antigonos Doson, ANSMN 9 (1960), p. 49. Weber 2190 (same dies). A spectacular and very rare example with a wonderful, high relief head of Poseidon of the very finest Hellenistic style. Extremely fine.
This bears one of the most impressively florid heads of Poseidon to appear on Greek coinage. The normal issues of Doson, as the following lot, have a very strong and stern head of the sea god, but the head on this coin seems much more emotional and approachable. Merker points out that the style of the trident issues (known with either a or IE accompanying the trident) clearly marks them off from the main issues produced at Amphipolis and suggests they were produced in Corinth during the Macedonian king’s expedition there in the later 220s. Touratsoglou, however, in his publication of the ‘confiscated hoard of Thesprotia/1992,’ first tells us that all of the Poseidon issues belong to Doson (Disjecta Membra p. 77, note 2), but then not only makes the suggestion that Doson’s issues were, in fact, originally begun by Gonatas (and that the trident issues were the prototypes issued in c. 250), but that they continued down until around 210 (Disjecta Membra pp. 80-81, notes 4a, 4b and 5)! In fact, they probably can be associated with the king’s expedition to Caria in 227; and, given their style and general rarity, the few known trident issues must have been the prototype, with the more common monogram issues, as the following lot, being the main series. H. Gaebler, AMNG III, 2, p. 216, 85 and pl. XXXIII, 27 suggests that virtually all the trident/a tetradrachms are forgeries (!), but there seems no possible reason to agree with him: François de Callataÿ, in his catalogue of the Du Chastel collection clearly ignored the suspicion for his piece (expressly condemned by Gaebler). In fact, Gaebler seems to have been influenced by the cataloguers of two 19th century English auctions (both Sotheby’s, the Thomas collection of 1844 and the Northwick collection of 1859) who doubted the specimens they presented. Obviously, however, many contemporary experts disagreed: the Northwick piece, lot 686, went for what was then the huge price of £21 (an archaic Naxos tetradrachm in perfect condition, lot 311, only sold for £12) to the famous French dealer H. Hoffmann who certainly would not have paid such a massive price for a forgery (this coin is, in fact, the Brussels piece). Given the fact that, among other things, Gaebler also condemned the Mende/Kaliandra hoard in its entirety (!) we can discount his opinion here, especially since the coin shows no signs of falsity whatsoever.

Poseidone a figura intera in tutta la sua potenza.

KINGS of MACEDON. Demetrios I Poliorketes. 306-283 BC. AR Tetradrachm (17.21 g, 1h). Ephesos mint. Struck circa 301-295 BC. Nike alighting atop prow of galley left, blowing trumpet in her right hand, and cradling stylis in her left arm / BA-SILEW-S DHMHTRIOU, Poseidon Pelagaios, nude, standing left, throwing trident held in his right hand, mantle draped over his left arm; monogram to left, star to right. Newell 51 (obv. die XLIII); SNG München -; SNG Alpha Bank 346; Hunterian 1 (same obv. die). Good VF. Struck from artistic dies.
Demetrios I Poliorketes was the son of one of Alexander's greatest generals, Antigonos I Monophthalmos. Antigonos was arguably the strongest of Alexander’s followers, the diadochs, at one time ruling over all of Alexander's eastern territories from Asia Minor to Baktria, except for Egypt. Antigonos’ success led him to be the first diadoch to crown himself king, in 306 BC. By that time, Demetrios was an active participant in his father's wars, and was also crowned king along with his father. Fearing Antigonos’ growing power, other diadochs allied themselves against him, and finally defeated and killed him at the battle of Ipsos in 301 BC. Following Ipsos, Demetrios continued to battle the other diadochs, and although he won numerous victories, he was usually unable to maintain his control over his conquests afterward. His epithet, Poliorketes ('besieger of cities') was earned following his siege of Rhodes. While that siege ultimately failed, it featured a number of elaborate siege engines which had become a hallmark of Demetrios' style of warfare. Demetrios was eventually abandoned by his army, and he subsequently surrendered to Seleukos I of Syria in 288 BC. Demetrios died in captivity five years later.
Estimate: $1500

Bronzo Zeus-Atena

58fb6b97cf700_AEZeuseAtena.JPG.7aa7b0bd2e42c1a556ac22dce4e0277f.JPG

Kings of Macedonia. Philip V. Ca 211-197 BC. AE17. Head of Zeus right in oak-wreath / B-A / F to left and right of Athena advancing right, holding shield and hurling thunderbolt. Club (?) in lower right field. Mamroth B11d; SNG Alpha Bank 1071-1072.

Note: Known symbols in the field of this type are e.g. thunderbolt, a club, a harpa, a wing-like object and a dolphin.

 

Figlia prediletta di Zeus, Atena nacque già adulta dalla testa del dio, armata di uno scudo ornato con la spaventosa testa della gorgone Medusa, che pietrificava chiunque la guardasse, della sua lancia, dell'egida (una corazza di pelle caprina) e dell'elmo.

La madre di Atena era Meti o Metide, secondo il mito la prima amante (e forse la prima moglie) di Zeus, al quale non si consegnò facilmente, trasformandosi in mille modi e cercando di sfuggirgli prima di arrendersi. Dopo la previsione di un oracolo che Zeus sarebbe stato detronizzato da un figlio avuto da Meti, quando seppe che lei era incinta, il padre degli dei pensò bene di inghiottirla allo scopo di evitare che partorisse. Dato che Meti era in grado di assumere qualsiasi forma desiderasse, secondo una versione Zeus la indusse a trasformarsi in una goccia d'acqua e la inglobò bevendola, mentre secondo un’altra versione fu trasformata in una cicala o in una mosca e poi inghiottita. Al momento del parto venne al dio un fortissimo mal di testa e, grazie all'aiuto di Efesto o di Prometeo, si riuscì a spaccare con un'ascia il cranio immortale di Zeus in modo che Atena potè uscire dalla ferita.

Secondo Esiodo, la seconda sposa di Zeus fu Temi (la legge), che gli diede le Moire e secondo alcuni anche le Ore, e la terza, Eurinome, fu la madre delle Grazie. In seguito Zeus si unì a sua sorella Demetra, divinità del grano, che mise al mondo Persefone.

Demetra e Zeus sono raffigurati sul diritto e sul rovescio di alcuni bronzi di Messene, in Messenia.

Dia (Dion) (IACP p. 687)

Other than its location and the small number of mid 4th century BC coins that have been found and published since the 1990s, virtually nothing is known about Dia. It was apparently not a polis in either political or urban terms.

THESSALY, Dia. Mid 4th century BC. Æ Chalkous (14mm, 2.39 g, 6h). Head of Zeus r., hair bound with tainia in the form of a wreath, vertical thunderbolt behind / [ΔΙ]Α-ΩИ retrograde from top l. downwards, Demeter in long chiton seated l. on throne with a back, feet on footstool, phiale in outstretched r. hand, sceptre held diagonally in l., below throne, small Δ. Studies Price, p. 115, Issue I, 1 (but as Dion in Macedonia) corr. [there actually is a small Δ below the throne on this die and on the above article’s pl. 28, 1d one can see the horizontal line behind the neck of Demeter that is part of the top of the throne]. Hatzopoulos/Psoma, p. 11, 1 (as Dia in Thessaly). Good VF, dark green patina.
