A lot of people here do. I only have a couple, but others here are enthusiasts.

Great artistic quality and quite undervalued in my opinion. I think the history isn't as well known as other ancient series and thus value can suffer. Probably one of the more fascinating coins is that of Antiochus IV. A biblical villain. Don't show up to auction often, but very approachable in my opinion when they do. Got this one several years ago.

Wonderful pieces Bob! Those are some great portraits. I always felt this series had some of the best artistic qualities of the era. That Zeus on Antiochus viii looks like he really needs a burger!
