These were bycatch from the Decimus Brutus denarius, but I might as well show them off before they go in my sale! I must admit that the Republican moneyers were much more liberal in their artistry than the rigid, formal Imperial celatores.

Issued as part of Caesars quadruple triumph in 46 BC, which distributed 5,000 denarii to each Legionary soldier loyal to Caesar during the civil war (more for officers), plus 100 to each Plebian in Rome. Cordius Rufus is known for making the most beautiful and sought-after of Caesar's lifetime portrait denarii, and worked for Octavian as well.

Thanks all!

As much as I wish I could keep all of the coins, I have to let some go. The Decimus Bruti was probably the prize of this particular lot, but there was also a nice serratus which was a type I have been wanting for a long time. I am not entirely certain how I want to collect Republican coinage, but I eventually hope to own a pre-denarius coin, an early anonymous type, a few "l'art pour l'art" pieces I find visually appealing, and then a set of Imperatorial coinage.

I agree with you. I do prefer the Republican roman coins at an artistic level. Congratulations!

Finn that is a fantastic lot. I'm sure I haven't been collecting as long as most of the members of our community, so maybe, in time, it will be less traumatic to go and sell off some of my coins and move on to greener pastures.

But the thought of that makes me cringe.
