Roman propaganda of the 4th century AD. "Happy times are here again" ("FEL TEMP REPARATIO") reads the legend as a Roman footsoldier slays a barbarian enemy horseman.  The propaganda is meant to portray the Roman government as a necessary and victorious force protecting Romans and repelling horseborne barbarians trying to settle Roman land. Another coin in the same series (the 2nd coin) shows a Roman dragging a barbarian from a hut, apparently removing for him, perhaps for resettlement or expulsion. For good reason, humans have evolved a natural fear of being harmed or replaced by invading foreigners. Historically, through much of human history that was a real danger. Nowadays, perhaps not so much.  Regardless, that fear is bred into us.  It is part of us and can be exploited, used as a tool. I thought I would mention that as election day nears in the United States, and anti-foreigner sentiment peaks. Both coins from Contantius II (337-361AD), both coins struck in Alexandria, 346-355AD.  #barbarian #invasion #numismatics #numismatic #coins #coin #syossetcoin

Zhu Yuanzhang (Chu Yuan-chang), also known by his reign name "Hung-wu", came from a poor peasant family.  He was orphaned at the age of 16 and then entered a Buddhist monastery, but left it in 1352 to join a band of rebels, of which he became leader.

Ptolemy I, King of Egypt 304 - 284 B.C.  Ptolemy was a close childhood friend of Alexander the Great, and became one of his leading, most-trusted generals.  When Alexander died in 323 BC, Ptolemy became satrap (governor) of Egypt, as his share of  the divided kingdom.  In 304 he declared himself king.  This silver tetradrachm shows his portrait.  The tiny Greek letter "delta" just behind the ear, in a curl of hair, is thought to represent the die-engraver's signature.  #ptolemy #alexanderthegreat #delta #numismatics #numismatic #coin #coins #syossetcoin

Roman Empire. Brass sestertius, Rome mint, 246AD.  It shows 8-year-old Philip II (son of the Emperor Philip I,) as "Caesar" (which at that time had the meaning of "prince" or "emperor-designate"). The next year year his father made the boy co-Emperor.  Two years later his father fell in battle, and Philip II was promptly murdered by the Praetorian Guard. #philip #antioch #praetorianguard #caesar #numismatics #numismatic #coin #coins #syossetcoin

Celtic tibes in the Danube region, imitations of Philip III tetradrachms, circa 3rd to 2nd centuries BC.  Note the general evolution over time of the obverse type showing Herakles wearing a lion skin. Even though the coins on the bottom row show little detail, they are not worn from the coins being used in circulation.

Cod.  An immensely important fish in the history and evolution of mankind.  Before overfishing, cod were so abundant that a bucket lowered deep into cold waters could yield a catch.  Because it was low in fat, cod could be salted and dried so that it could last indefintely (you can't do that with a fatty fish like Mackerel, which would turn rancid). As a source of dense protein-rich sustenance in no need of refigeration, salted cod was instrumental in long distance exploration, trade, colonization, slavery and armies.  And cod was also crucial to the invention of fish sticks.  Shown on a 10 Pfennig from the Free City of Danzig, 1932.  A creation of the Versailles Treaty after World War I, Danzig was nominally a free city populated by Germans but surrounded by newly-formed Poland.  The situation would provide Hitler a useful pretext to invade Poland. #danzig #gdansk #cod #codfish #numismatic #numismatics #coin #coins #syossetcoin

Omphale, a mythological Lydian Queen, dressed as Herakles. Herakles, as punishment for killing Iphitus, was given as a slave to Omphale for one year. It was supposedly humiliating for Herakles to serve an Oriental woman in this fashion.  During this time, Omphale freed Herakles and took him as her husband. The episode was the subject of much Greek comedy and drama related to inversion of sexual roles, sexual tension, and eroticism, but very little survives.  Apparently it was not the type of material that was copied and stored in monasteries  during the middle ages.

Later on, he would grow a long beard, and became known as "Constantine the Bearded". Still later, he moved from Constantinople (modern-day Istanbul) to Sicily.

Chinese burial money, clay imitation cowrie, 1st millennium BC.  Cowrie shells were one of the earliest forms of money in ancient China, before metal coins.  The Chinese practice of burying money with the deceased, to make the afterlife more comfortable, also began in ancient times.  Typically the money was symbolic, specifically made for burying with the dead, rather than actual money.  This would be cheaper, but would also deter tomb robbers.  #mortuarymoney #darkmoney #buriedmoney #numismatic #numismatics #coin #coins #syossetcoin syossetcoin.com

Antiochos I Soter, as sole ruler of the Seleukid Empire, 281-261BC. Antiochos was half Greek and half Persian.  His father was Macedonian nobility, a general of Alexander the Great.  At a great ceremony in Susa in 324 BC, Alexander married the daughter of the late Persian king, and had his generals marry eastern princesses at the same ceremony. When Alexander died in 323BC, many of the generals unloaded their "Susa wives", but Antiochos' father kept his.  #antiochos #antiochus #seleukid #seleucid #susa #numismatic #coins #coin #syossetcoin syossetcoin.com

Judea, 1st revolt from the Romans, dated year 3, which corresponds to 68/9 AD. Jerusalem mint. The coin shows a branch with three pomegranates, around the legend "Jerusalem is Holy". In the third year things began to go poorly for the revolt.  Jerusalem would fall to the Romans in the middle of 70AD. There was little time for this coin to circulate.  Consequently most year 3 shekels that exist are in superb condition, with little wear. #judea #shekel #pomegranate #jerusalem  #numismatics #numismatic #coin #coins #syossetcoin syossetcoin.com

Silver 8 reales from Mexico City, 1618-1634AD. The Spanish Empire was one of the largest empires in history.  It had the advantage of unprecidented wealth coming in from Central and South America, in the form of huge quantities of silver.  The silver was exported largely in the form of coins.  During the 17th century, the large quantity and demands of production led to ever poorer workmanship. These roughly made lumps of silver, irregular in shape and thickness but of standard weight and fineness, were crude but served their purpose.  The vast imports of silver ultimately made Spain overly dependent on foreign sources of raw materials and manufactured goods. #8reales #mexicocity #spanishempire #numismatic #numismatics #coin #coins #syossetcoin syossetcoin.com

Turk Yabghus in Tokharestan, 7th century AD.  Silver drachm imitating a drachm of the Sassanian Emperor Hormizd IV (579-590AD). These are invariably found with a "flying camel" countermark, seen here in the margin at 2:00.  Originally, this was thought to be cojoined foreparts of a camel (left) and elephant (right), until clearer specimens were seen in a recent hoard.  Not everyone thinks it is a camel.  There are those who believe it is a deer.  If I ever find a Turk Yabghu, I will be sure to ask him what it is.  #camel #flyingcamel #tokharestan #balkh #numismatic #numismatics #coin #coins #syossetcoin syossetcoin.com

Автор @coin_fanclub_ig -  В Ставропольском крае, неподалёку от Сенгилеевского озера кладоискатели нашли золотые украшения и посуду скифской эпохи. И это несмотря на то, что раскопки, официальные и неофициальные, в здешних местах ведутся много лет, и курган был многократно разграблен. Находка однозначно принадлежит к скифской эпохе и датируется IV веком до нашей эры!

Круче этой находки была только легендарная золотая пектораль древних скифов, найденная в 1971 году в Днепропетровской области. Этот артефакт весит 1,2 килограмма чистого золота и включает в себя более сотни тонко выделанных фигурок и декоративных элементов.

In the Stavropol region, near Sengileevsky lake treasure hunters found gold jewelry and dishes of the Scythian era. And this despite the fact that the excavations, official and unofficial, in these places are conducted for many years, and the mound was repeatedly looted. The find definitely belongs to the Scythian era and dates back to the IV century BC!
Steeper than this discovery was only the legendary Golden pectoral of the ancient Scythians, found in 1971 in the Dnipropetrovsk region. This artifact weighs 1.2 kilograms of pure gold and includes more than a hundred finely crafted figures and decorative elements. .
