Il Re dei Re!


Recommended Posts


Dopo lunghe ricerche ho trovato e acquistato questa moneta emessa dal Re dei Re, Serse I Achemenide (Type IIIb), che a dispetto del look glabro dei film/fumettone 300 era invece bello e barbuto da buon persiano! 😄

Ciò che mi lascia perplesso qui è il nasone non meno ”fumettoso” e un po’ esagerato... Ma per soli 40 euro ho voluto correre il rischio. A voi cosa ve ne pare?

ROYAUME ACHEMENIDE, AR sicle, 485-470 av. J.-C. Série IIIb, groupe A. D/ Le roi agenouillé à d. sur une ligne de sol, ten. une lance et un arc, un carquois sur l'épaule. R/ Carré creux allongé. Carradice 18. 5,57g Coup. Poinçon dans le champ à g. Beau à Très Beau (Fine - Very Fine)

It is genuine but I hope you noticed that there is a countermark to the left of the king? Elsen fixed price lists are like the others-quite overpriced compared to auctions. But at this price range there is not a lot to discuss...
