Click here to see the Emmett Collection coins for sale in my store

Mr. Emmett is one of the premier collectors of Roman Egyptian coinage in the world. He wrote "Alexandrian Coins", the standard reference on the series, in 2001. I feel extremely fortunate and honored to be documenting his collection on-line here and being able to offer selections in my VCoins store.

Ex Keith Emmett Collection; Ex Harlan Berk, June 1998

Notes from Curtis Clay on HJB ticket - "Apparently a new type for Trajan at Alexandria. Not in Dattari, Vogt, Cologne, BM or Oxford. The reading of the weak date is confirmed by Cologne 621, from the same obverse die with reverse L IV emperor in quadriga right. A different type of Roma seated (on arms, not chair, and holding parazonium, not spear in left hand) occurs on an Alexandrian tetradrachm of Trajan Year 8 (BM 381, pl. XXIII)."

Notes from Curtis Clay from HJB Ticket: Apparently unpublished. A related type struck under Trajan shows the emperor (not Serapis) in a biga of centaurs stepping right (not left as here), e.g. Cologne 533. From the same obverse die as another drachm in Berk stock with different reverse type dated L ID.

Note from Mr. Emmett on December 8, 2008 - There are only 2 specimens known for this rare type.

Ex Keith Emmett Collection; Ex Harlan Berk, June 1998

Note from Mr. Emmett on December 8, 2008 - This type is known to be issued in year 12.

My notes: Both Mr. Emmett and Curtis Clay of HJB describe the reverse figure as holding a serpent, although Mr. Clay adds (?) to his note on the flip tag. From my experience with other Roman bronzes, I believe I am correctly describing the reverse figure with simply holding fold of robe which drapes vertically over the figure's left arm, which is bent with hand on hip.

Update from Mr. Emmett on May 20, 2009: "For the right facing obverse the coin does not match the Dattari specimen. It is simlar to an additional coin in Dattari/Savio. This reverse type has several varieties: Obverse head (with drapery) or bust; obverse facing right or left, cornucopiae on reverse to right or left, often has "IS" above cornucopiae; date: L--ID, or LI--D

I do not think RPC has a picture of the left facing coin with "IS" lacking."

After 70 days, Sirius rose in the eastern horizon at dawn in July and marked the new agricultural year - an extremely important event to the ancient Egyptians.

Note from Mr. Emmett on December 8, 2008 - There are 2 bust types: Bust right bare headed and bust right laureate. I think my coin is laureate. The tets of year 17 (all laureate) has Augustus = CEB, but bronze have "Imperator Caesar"=AVTOK KAIC" but no Augustus title. I just list them as "under Aurelius" in my book. I think my notes on the coin flip are not accurate as I was describing the bare head/laureate head different, but all types are busts and none are left (laureate and not left).

Some interesting follow-up notes from Tom Barbeau on September 26, 2006 on the reverse type: "The couch apparently may be referred to as lectistern. The gods were invited to a feast of reconciliation at times of upheaval and calamity. The feast was called a lectisternium. There are a number of reverse types which commemorate lectisternia."

Ex Keith Emmett Collection; Ex Olympus, April 1983

Note: The object Poseidon is holding in his right hand is very detailed, but unusual if an aplustre. Most depictions of an aplustre (ornamental wooden object on the stern of a ship) show a curved design as like bird feathers. On this specimen, the object appears to be the head of a detailed trident or a triple-bladed short sword. It seems as though Poseidon is grasping the shaft or hilt of the weapon, above his hand is a guard, followed by three distinct blades - the outer blades curved like a sai, the center blade longer with a distinct spear head. Mr. Emmett does not describe any of the attributes of the reverse apart from "Poseidon standing left", thus I cannot tell if this is the expected attributes for this reverse Emmett number (although there are no other Claudius II Poseidon reverse types listed).

Update from Mr. Emmett on May 20, 2009: "Milne and Curtis describe the item as a sword. The type is similar to the Gallienus reverse, which is also described as a palm/sword? or aphlaston. Looks like a type of weapon to me."

Note: This reverse is modeled after the famous statue Herakles Farnese currently in the Lourve. The Wikipedia entry describes it as "an ancient sculpture, probably an enlarged copy made in the early third century AD by Glykon[1] of an original of Lysippos or one of his circle, of the fourth century BC.[2], made for the Baths of Caracalla in Rome (dedicated in 216 AD), where it was recovered in 1546[3]."
