Followed by the Roman Republican section which showcases a small group of high grade anonymous didrachms and a particularly attractive and high grade quinarius from the early Republic.
The Roman Imperial section offers a number of ever popular Augustan coins, including the iconic aureus depicting Gaius and Lucius Caesar. There are a selection of interesting rarities throughout the section, for example an extremely rare denarius of Pescennius Niger and an equally rare and extremely fine antoninianus of Gallienus, possibly one of only two known.
The end of the Imperial section and the Byzantine section offer a number of rare bronzes from Cherson, of particular note is an exceedingly rare pentanummium of Justinian I and a Leo I maiorina of unusually high grade for the type.
The sale continues with Islamic and Modern & Medieval selections with notable and desirable coins in each. A very rare gold sultani of Mustafa III and some attractive dirhem weights can be found in the Islamic section and an extremely rare denar of Samuel Aba from Hungary is a particular highlight from the Modern section.
