LMCC Addenda Page Revised June 2017

 

It has been a while since the LMCC addenda has been updated. There have been a number of items accumulating over the last few months and in particular, the recent ROMA auctions of ‘The Collection of a Connoisseur’ has provided us with some interesting new material. We are very grateful to ROMA Numismatics for allowing us to use their images.

 

The Academic Collection of Romano-British Coins of a Well Known Connoisseur

 

Some of these coins fill gaps where the Bourton-on-the-Water reference coins were lacking images. As these coins were sold through the trade it is possible that these coins are they. However, this is pure supposition but mentioned here for completeness.

 

ROMA Numismatics Auction XIII 23rd March 2017

 

5.01.008   ROMA XIII Lot 1260 is an example of this type with bust variant B2.2 a particularly ornate cuirass – see LMCC p. 84 for definitions of bust sub-types.

 

7.03.049   An example of this type with no star in the right field (25 mm 3.30 g 6h) ROMA XIII Lot 1272 now DiMarzio collection. Another example without the star is known to be in the Stewartby collection.

 

7.04.012   Not illustrated in LMCC but an example in ROMA XIII Lot 1274 where it was miscatalogued as this is clearly a cuirassed bust (24 mm 3.88 g 6h) now DiMarzio collection.

 

7.04.024   See footnote. Huvelin cites a specimen from Sarzeau that has a shield decorated with the head of a gorgon. An example with such decoration in ROMA XIII Lot 1275 (23 mm 3.84 g 5h) as pictured here.

 

7.07.019   Not illustrated in LMCC but an example in ROMA XIII Lot 1277 where it was miscatalogued as this is clearly a radiate helmeted bust type ( 23 mm 4.07 g 6h).

 

8.02.009   See footnote. Another example without the S and F in the fields in the ROMA XIII Auction Lot 1262 (21 mm 3.36 g 6h) now DiMarzio collection.

 

8.07.031  To be removed. This coin was noted in LMCC as needing confirmation. Lot 1285 (21 mm 3.10 g 6h) in this sale is noted as ‘CT 8.07.031 – this coin” complete with the Vecchi provenance. In fact the image shows that it is an example of the previous type 8.07.030, so 8.07.031 does not exist.

 

9.01.001   ROMA XIII Lot 1286 is miscatalogued but is a variant of 9.01.001 (not 006) with a garlanded altar column (20 mm 3.14 g 6h).

 

 

E-Auction 29th April 2017

 

7.06.006   Not illustrated in LMCC but an example illustrated here in ROMA E-auction 35 Lot 1485 (24 mm 3.90 g 7h) misdescribed as 7.06.013.

 

8.09.008.5  CONSTANTINVS IVN N C (19 mm 2.41 g 6h) ROMA E-Auction 35 Lot 1569 now DiMarzio collection.
