    Highlight: Elsen (2002) argues that the weight standard of the Athenian tetradrachm from the sixth through third centuries BCE was 17.28 g, based on a 432 g mina (and its corresponding 4.32 g drachm). 19 Drawing evidence from textual sources, extant owls and issues of Alexander, Elsen presents solid argu- ments for the continuity of this theoretical mark. Nevertheless, the status of the Attic standard in the later fourth century is worth revisiting, both because it has attracted a fair amount of attention because of Alexander’s adoption of it (e.g., Morkholm 1982; Price 1991a: 41-44), and because there appear to be anomalies in the weights of the pi-style owls. There is general agreement that the theoretical Attic standard for tetradrachms in the later fourth century lay between c. 17.20 and 17.30 g,

    Highlight: Coins of the Northern Provinces (Netherlands) and the Southern Provinces (Belgium) Jean Elsen (Jean Elsen & ses Fils) In September of this year, in Brussels, we sold the most important collection of coins of the 17 Provinces (Netherlands and Belgium) formed in the United States. This was the collection of Mr. J.R. Lasser of New York, who assembled it during the 1980s and 90s. His paternal grandparents came from the Netherlands, which explains his curiosity concerning the history and numismatics of the Netherlands. His great interest for the American colonial period quickly led him to search for the coins struck by the different colonial powers (Netherlands, Spain...) that could have been circulating in the New World. Among those, the coins of the Netherlands of 16th and 17th centuries

This specimen comes from Jean Elsen sale 62, 24 May 2000 (lot 983). Figure 2 Delmonte 229 During the first half of the 16th century, several municipal mints of the Northern Netherlands imitated types of the German talers (the German taler became the daalder in the Dutch monetary system and later the dollar in America). This occurred first in the three imperial cities: Deventer, Kampen and Zwolle. Thus Deventer struck in 1538 remarkable daalders representing Saint Lebuinus and showing on the reverse the linked arms of the three cities: Deventer, Kampen and Zwolle

The great prosperity the young state enjoyed in the course of this century cannot be disassociated from the exceptional development of the Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie (VOC), which was for a time the most important commercial company in the world. At the peak of its power it possessed more than half the world’s sea-going ships and was the most influential of the European companies founded in the seventeenth century to exploit the riches of Asia.

The article was translated from the French by Robert Ronus, with considerable assistance from the author, Jean Elsen.) Notes 1. At the beginning of the 17th century, Holland was one of the most heavily populated regions of Europe and was by far the most influential of the seven provinces, whose inhabitants were all called Hollandais (Hollanders) by contemporaries, as still today.
