Sixth day of the Auction 14 – Ancient coins
We have passed the halfway point of our 14th auction. Today we will continue the auction of foreign coins, and tomorrow we invite you to a feast for lovers of ancient coinage. Today and tomorrow we start from 5 p.m., of course. What about antiquity? First of all, a beautiful mint piece of the solid of Theodosius II (443-460 AD). If we look at it, it is hard to believe how such a coin could have survived in mint condition for so many centuries. Impossible? Nothing could be further from the truth.
We also cannot miss a classic of ancient coinage, the most media-friendly and recognizable coin of that time – the Athenian tetradrachm, also known as the “owl”. And the state of preservation? A dream.
