Lot 73: ATTIKA. Athens. Tetradrachm. Ca. 449 – 404 BC.
The auction starts with some nice Eastern Celtic coins, furthermore Greek coins from Southern Italy, Sicily, Northern Greece (beneath others rare small coins in silver and bronze, e.g. from Thrako-Skythian rulers), Macedonia (beneath others extremely fine gold staters of Philipp II. and Alexander the Great), a series of attractive tetradrachms from Athens as well as samples of coinage from Asia Minor and Armenia.
These are followed by selected Roman Provincial coins, partially extremely rare items.
Lot 310: PROBUS (276 – 282 AD). Antoninian. 277 AD. Siscia. Extremely rare.
Among the Roman Republican and Imperial coins many denarii and middle bronzes of high quality and with excellent portraits can be acquired, furthermore several antoniniani with very interesting extraordinary busts and reverse types.
Lot 327: GALERIA VALERIA (died. 314 AD.). Aureus. 308 – 310 AD. Nicomedia.
Beneath the attractive Late Roman and Byzantine gold coins a perfectly preserved and splendid Aureus of Galeria Valeria deserves special mention.
Lot 382: Bagratids. Bagrat IV. (1027 – 1072). Silver-Drachm. Ca. 1060 – 1072. Extremely rare.
Medieval coins are represented with items from Germany, Austria, Europe and a series of Georgian coins, that deserves highlighting because of some extreme rarities (e.g. two silver drachmas of Bagrat IV. and Giorgi II.).
The auction is continued with some selected coins and medals of Early Modern Germany, Austria and Europe. Finally an attractive series of Islamic coins with many rarities and a focus on the coinage of the Ottoman Empire is offered.
