From the Giovanni Maria Staffieri Collection. Ex Adolph Hess AG 251 (7 May 1981), lot 163.

The Great Sothic Cycle was a calendrical cycle based on the heliacal rising in July of the star Sirius (known to the Greeks as Sothis) and lasting approximately 1460 years. According to ancient Egyptian mythology, in a Golden Age, the beginning of the flooding of the Nile coincided exactly with the rising of Sirius, which was reckoned as the New Year. Only once every 1460 years did Sirius rise at exactly the same time. Thus, the coincidence of this along with the concurrent beginning of the flooding of the Nile gave the event major cosmological significance by heralding not just the beginning of a new year, but the beginning of a new eon. This event also was thought to herald the appearance of the phoenix, a mythological bird which was reborn every 500 to 1000 years out of its own ashes. According to one version of the myth, each new phoenix embalmed its old ashes in an egg of myrrh, which it then deposited in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis. So important was the advent of the new Great Sothic Cycle, both to the realignment of the heavens and its signaling of the annual flooding of the Nile, that the Egyptians celebrated it in a five-day festival, which emphasized the important cosmological significance.

In the third year of the reign of Antoninus Pius (AD 139/40), a new Great Sothic Cycle began. To mark this event, the mint of Alexandria struck an extensive series of coinage, especially in large bronze drachms, each related in some astrological way to the reordering of the heavens during the advent of the new Great Sothic Cycle. This celebration would continue throughout Pius’ reign, with an immense output of coinage during the eighth year of his reign in Egypt, which included this coin type, part of the Zodiac series.

Rare Zodiac Drachm of Antoninus Pius

Jupiter in Sagittarius


EGYPT, Alexandria. Antoninus Pius. AD 138-161. Æ Drachm (34mm, 20.64 g, 1h). Zodiac series. Dated RY 8 (AD 144/145). AVT K T AIΛ A∆P ANTωNINOC CЄB ЄVC, laureate head right / Jupiter in Sagittarius: Centaur galloping right, drawing bow and arrow; above centaur, bust of Jupiter (Zeus) right with slight drapery; L H (date) below. Köln 1502 var. (obv. legend and star above centaur’s head); Dattari (Savio) 2974 var. (star above centaur’s head); K&G 35.262 var. (same); Emmett 1693.8. Good VF, attractive reddish-brown patina with touches of green. Rare. One of the finest known examples for the type. The star that usually appears on the reverse above the centaur’s head (indicating that this type represents the constellation) appears to have been left off of this die by the celator.


Alexandria saw an immense output of coinage during the eighth year of Antoninus Pius’s reign. The Zodiac drachms, mythological types, and a host of issues for the nomes appeared that year. One explanation for this activity centers on the celebration of the renewal of the Great Sothic cycle, the point when the star Sothis (Sirius) rises on the same point on the horizon as the sun. This cycle of 1461 years began early in the reign of Pius in AD 139, and apparently prompted a renewal in the ancient Egyptian religion, while the coin types also stressed the connections to the Greco-Roman Pantheon.

EGYPT, Alexandria. Antoninus Pius. AD 138-161. Æ Drachm (37mm, 23.78 g, 12h). Zodiac series. Dated RY 8 (AD 144/145).

Very rare and elusive type, with the details mostly visible. Better than the Zodiac Wheel type we sold in CNG 102 (2016), lot 768, which realized $7,000 on the hammer.

 

From the Giovanni Maria Staffieri Collection. Ex M&M Numismatics, Ltd. I (7 December 1997), lot 296; Kerry K. Wetterstrom Collection (Classical Numismatic Auctions XIII, 4 December 1990), lot 157; John Work Garrett Collection (Part III, Numismatic Fine Arts/Bank Leu, 29 March 1985), lot 484k (part of).

The Great Sothic Cycle was a calendrical cycle based on the heliacal rising in July of the star Sirius (known to the Greeks as Sothis) and lasting approximately 1460 years. According to ancient Egyptian mythology, in a Golden Age, the beginning of the flooding of the Nile coincided exactly with the rising of Sirius, which was reckoned as the New Year. Only once every 1460 years did Sirius rise at exactly the same time. Thus, the coincidence of this along with the concurrent beginning of the flooding of the Nile gave the event major cosmological significance by heralding not just the beginning of a new year, but the beginning of a new eon. This event also was thought to herald the appearance of the phoenix, a mythological bird which was reborn every 500 to 1000 years out of its own ashes.

EGYPT, Alexandria. Hadrian. AD 117-138. Æ Drachm (36mm, 28.56 g, 12h). Dated RY 20 (AD 135/136). [AVT KAIC T]PAIAN • AΔPIANO[C CЄB], laureate, draped, and cuirassed bust right / Ram, wearing crown composed of two uraei and disk, standing right before altar; above, draped bust right of Sarapis wearing kalathos; L K (date) across upper field.

From the Giovanni Maria Staffieri Collection, purchased from Dr. Piero Beretta, Milan, October 1972. Ex Dr. Piero Beretta Collection (Milan); Giovanni Dattari Collection, no. 1825.

An interesting type that is often misidentified as a ‘Zodiac’ type (Aries). Unlike the coin in lot 87, with Zeus-Sarapis riding a ram, this is the more commonly encountered type depicting Sarapis in combination with Ammon or Khnum.
