Market Evaluation: Historical coins with Tales in CNG auction

Definitely among the most exciting was a bronze drachm outdated RY 8 (A.D. 144 to 145) minted in Alexandria, Egypt under Antoninus Pius. The wonderful reverse comes with a zodiac wheel using Aries on top, around an inner ring with all the conjoined busts left of Helios and Selene.

CNG rated it horribly Fine, detecting attractive dark green surfaces with touches of crimson and including,"Our coin is definitely the best famous for this exceptionally rare selection, and overall among the best famous Zodiac wheel types out of Alexandria."

It had been a part of a string of coins struck through Pius's predominate celebrating the astrological Great Sothic Cycle, which linked to the flood of the Nile River and also the start of a brand new eon, marked with the look of the phoenix, a mythical bird that was spanned every 500 to 1000 years from its ashes.
