    Highlight: because of the 28 Leo-Constantine specimens of which I know the posi- tions 24 are at 12 o’clock and among the four with reverses at 6 o’clock none has the misspelling. One should perhaps note, however, that the arrangement of the dies on the coins of Artavasdus and of Constantine V-Leo IV is irregular (Artavasdus: two at 12 o’clock, three at 6 o’clock; Constantine V-Leo IV: two at 12 o'clock, six at 6 o’clock). Later, i.e., from Constantine VI onward, reverses are regularly at 12 o’clock. In other words at the start the majority are at 6 o’clock, under Leo-Constantine the majority are at 12 o’clock, and later all are at 12 o’clock. Could the Leo-Constantine specimens at 6 o'clock be attributed to Leo III, the others to Leo IV ? Digitized by Gck igle Original from UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN

    The November 2015 Baltimore Auction, U.S. Coins

    Highlight: Rare original integral hanger intact at 12 o’clock. The obverse is deep chocolate and olive brown in the recesses, while the fields are slightly lighter chestnut brown. A series of old superficial abrasions are noted behind the Sower, but are of little visual consequence. Light verdigris on this side, mostly close to the rim and along the legs of the central figure. Still, pleasantly glossy and quite sharp, and not exhibiting any major damage as is often seen on awarded medals of this type. The reverse is patinated more deeply than the obverse and shows more extensive verdigris, but not enough to obscure any of the sharp design elements. Traces of deep chestnut may be seen near the center. A truly lovely specimen from one of the most notable American historical medal series, the so-called

    Highlight: ranging from 9 to 12 o’clock, and the use of cylin- drical punch dies. Are these bonafide Athenian emissions? Certainly group C shares some traits with the Athenian tetradrachms that slightly precede the New Style coinage.** These tetradrachms were likewise struck with a small number of dies, aligned in the 12 o’clock position; their reverse dies were cylindrical in section; and their helmet visors also end in a volute. If there were proof that group C was the most recent of the heterogeneous coinages, C would provide a satisfactory transition to the later Athenian issues. But beside the circumstance that this interpretation would introduce the incredible owl of C12 and 13 and the undeniably strange obverse of Cl 3 into the Athenian series, it is contrary to the chronological indications

Second the coins are of different sizes. The Egyptian style coins are thicker and have a smaller diameter, as Fig. 1 shows. The weights, however, appear to be the same, as Fig. 2 shows, although the weights of the Roman style coins were less strictly controlled. 11 Finally the metallic composition of the two groups is slightly, but noticeably, different as is shown by the analyses in the Appendix. The Roman style coins contain small, but measurable, quantities of tin and zinc, the Egyptian have none; and the Roman style

The Damascene tetradrachms have another advantage, they are dated according to the Seleucid era, in exergue below the swimmer, AMI, BMX, TMI (S.

Eight comet tetradrachms and five comet drachms of Tigranes are known. These are given to a satellite mint of Damascus. There are eight known tetradrachms assigned to the mint of Artaxata.
