Lot 310: KINGS of PONTOS. Pharnakes I, circa 200/185-169 BC. Drachm Very rare and with a superb portrait. Food very fine. From a European collection, formed before 2005. Starting Price: 2500 CHF.
Dr. Alan S. Walker said: “A curious problem that we have begun to have comes from the popularity and success of our previous sales: we have more and more consignors! Just imagine what it is like when, after Yves, Lars and I have finished the cataloguing, put all the lots in order and fully numbered everything, someone walks in with another 30 Celtic coins and Yves says, ‘Oh sure, we can put them in obolos 4…’ Luckily, by using brute force we have prevented him from adding any more lots and now you can enjoy looking through a really good sale!”
Lot 521: Mark Antony, with Octavia, Cistophorus, Ephesus (?), 39 BC. Banti & Simonetti 21 (this coin). RPC 2202. Good very fine. Ex NAC 70 (2013), 178, Sotheby’s, (1979), 443 and Hess-Leu 45 (1970), 456. Starting Price: 750 CHF.
