Looking for Sternberg Auction 23, 29 Oct. 2000

Hi All,

I'm looking specifically for a photo of lot 736 (should one exist) as well as any information associated with this particular lot. Baldwin's Auction 65 (Strickland-Neville-Rolfe) lot 1557 refers back to the Sternberg coin as being another die-linked example.

TIA!

John Barnard

John,

the auction taking place on 28th/29th of October 2000 was no. 35, not 23. Lot no. 736 was a Florian Denarius. If that is the coin you are looking for, I can scan the picture and description.

Thank you, Lars! That is the coin that I am trying to find. Looks like Baldwin's made an error with the volume number for that particular example. When you have the opportunity, please scan the description and photo and send it to me.

Thanks!

Denarius, Rome. IMP C FLORIANVS P AVG, laureate, draped and cuirassed bust right. Rev: VICT-OR-I-A AVG, Victory walking left with wreath and palm. RIC -, C.- 2.24 g. Probably unpublished.

The VICTORIA AVG-type with Victory standing left* was used by Tacitus for Aurei (RIC 334,80) and Denarii (RIC 336,99 and 100). The further use [of that type] by Florian seems to be unattested hitherto.
Enlargement of the Obverse and Reverse on plate V12.


Lars

* which is more precise than Victory "walking left" as written in the description above

But 'stehen' is standing, isn't it?

Yes, in the comment, Sternberg is correct in writing "stehen", but in the description, he used "geht n.l." = "walks to left".
