Revue Numismatique 171 (2014) p. 151-178

Abstract:

The historical ranking of imperial medallions requires a systematic comparison with all monetary denominations. The reign of Gordian III is a privileged field of investigation, combining a wide corpus of medallions and a relatively well-known structure of the regular monetary issues. This new perspective, established with a new ranking based on busts and not only the legends of reverses, identifies a multiplicity of connections with the monetary mint, freeing the existence of significant festive, medallic issues.

Gold for the barbarians? : uniface gold medallions of the House of Constantine found in Britain and Ireland / by Roger Bland

Abstract:

The paper discusses a hitherto neglected group of five uniface gold medallions in the names of Constantine I and II, issued between c. A.D. 318 and 337, found in Britain and Ireland. These have been found either beyond the frontier (three examples are from Ireland and one from Scotland) or close to it (one example is from Cumbria). It is suggested that they may have been produced as diplomatic gifts for peoples beyond the frontier or as payment for 'laeti'.

Revue Numismatique 164 (2008) p. 297-319

Abstract:

Following on our study of the silver content of bronze coins from Diocletian to Theodosius II, we analysed 173 silver-alloyed bronze, billon or lead-alloyed copper medallions from the Bibliothèque nationale de France in order to determine whether monetary reforms influenced the production of medallions. A non-destructive analysis method, fast neutron activation with a cyclotron, allowed the comparative study of coins and medallions' composition. The joint study of weight and metal data demonstrate that some bronze medallions can indeed be considered multiples of the contemporary current coins. The complexity and diversity of the bronze system in the Late Roman period is thus highlighted.

A gold Crispus medallion from Bukovina (Ukraine) / Aleksander Bursche, Kirill Myzgin

Source:

Notae Numismaticae 8 (2013) p. 185-190

Abstract:

The gold Crispus medallion discovered on the site of a Cherniakhiv culture settlement at Ivanovtsi, in south-western Ukraine by an amateur prospector weighs 1 and 1/2 solidi and was struck at Sirmium in AD 321. This type was known previously from a unique specimen, originally had a loop and possibly also a frame. Gold medallions of the Constantinian emperors are the largest group of multiples recorded on the territory of Barbaricum, apparently the result of an active diplomacy pursued by Constantine I and his successors with regard to barbarians. At the same time, on Cherniakhiv culture territory finds of gold medallions (compared to the Wielbark Culture territory or Transylvania) are extremely rare and the Crispus from Ivanovtsi is only a third multiple recorded to date. Gold coin finds from Cherniakhiv culture are dominated by aurei from the 3rd century, whereas finds of solidi from the first half of the 4th century are very few. All of which makes the presence of a handful of gold multiples even more striking, as they were a key tool in Roman diplomacy distributed to the representatives of Gothic power elites. From the region of Khotyn not far off we have a find of a Gallienus quaternio struck in 263. And in the right-bank area of the Dniester is recorded a concentration of solidi from the second half of the 4th and early 5th century. All of the above points to the existence, during the second half of the third and especially, in the 4th century, in the area in question of a local power centre.

It is studied a gold pendant with a Gallienus aureus, dated of the beginning of the joint reign (A.D. 253-54) and found in the area of the roman baths of Tongobriga (Marco de Canaveses, Porto). This medallion is related to others similar pieces coming from the western part of the Roman Empire. It also published a list of die links detected in a set of 26 aurei from public and private collections, that allows a better understanding of the gold coinage at the beginning of the joint reign of Gallienus. Finally, it discusses the archaeological context in which it was lost Tongobriga medallion presumably in the mid-fourth century.

Abstract:

This article provides an overview and catalogue of third century AD gold medallions with representations of Alexander the Great from the hoards of Tarsos in Cilicia and Aboukir in Egypt together with related smaller medals in gold and silver. Various questions on iconography, production, and use of these medallions from Aboukir and Tarsos are discussed. In addition a PIXE analysis of the five specimens, now in Berlin, is provided. Finally, these medallions are understood not as prizes awarded to victors of athletic and other competitions at Beroia (so-called niketeria), but as gifts presented by the Agonothetes and Makedoniarchos to high ranking visitors on the occasions of these games in honor of the emperor and Alexander.

Revue Numismatique 166 (2010) p. 397-418

Abstract:

A bronze medallion in the name of the usurper Julianus, also known as Julian of Pannonia (284-285 AD), currently kept among the dubious and fakes in Cabinet des Médailles, Bibliothèque nationale de France, has been re-examined. It may be concluded that the coin is genuine and for now the only proof that Julianus minted medallions alongside gold 'aurei' and silvered-bronze radiates ('aureliani'). This unpublished medallion offers the opportunity to review this short reign, addressing the dates, names and titles of the usurper in the light of the ancient sources and propose a corpus of the coinage minted in his name.

A medallion of Agrippa II / David Hendin

Abstract:

A previously unpublished medallion of Agrippa II, dated ‘Year 26’, seems to have been the prototype of a smaller coin with confronted busts of Titus and Domitian dated the following year (TJC: No. 168). This medallion, with enhanced portraits and legends, was apparently the first coin struck in Agrippa II’s Flavian mint at Caesarea-Paneas. The portraits on this coin, as well as on other coins of Agrippa II struck at Caesarea-Paneas, can best be explained by applying the era of 49 CE to them.

The described medallion is retained at present in the National Archaeological Museum of Parma and it seems to represent one of the most famous episodes in the Aeneas’ saga in Latium: the duel between the Trojan hero and Turnus, and the destruction of Ardea.

Ohnmacht und Religion : Bemerkungen zu einigen Götterdarstellungen auf den Medaillons des Antoninus Pius / Peter Franz Mittag

Abstract:

Literary sources, inscriptions and coins present Antoninus Pius as an emperor perfectly representing the traditional ideal of a pious emperor who promotes traditional Roman and Ital- ian cults. On the other side his medallions which were meant to some extent as gifts for his close friends show a series of unusual gods and mythical scenes. Some of these medallions seem to reflect the emperor’s personal religious belief. Gods connected to mysteries like Ceres and Cybele as well as healing gods like Aesculapius seem to belong to the emperor’s religious strategies to handle difficult situations as illness and death within his family – and thus reflect a more or less ‘powerless’ side within the topic of ‘power and religion’.

Roman medallions : the sixth moneytalk in Uppsala (May 7, 2015) / Peter Franz Mittag

Series:

Uppsala University Coin Cabinet working papers ; 15

Published:

Uppsala : Uppsala Universitet, 2015

Abstract:

Starting with C. Julius Caesar the Roman emperors not only minted coins but – at first only occasionally, since the second century AD more regularly – medallions as well. We do not know how the Romans called these special products of the imperial mint – but most of them obviously differ from normal coins by their technical features, and normally medallions are not found in the same contexts as coins. For that reason they must have served for other purposes than regular coinage. Modern numismatists disagree about the question when, why and for whom they were produced. Before focussing these questions it seems to be helpful to focus at first briefly on technical aspects. In a second step I would like to deal with the question why and when medallions where produced and who were the recipients. In the longer third part I would like to call your attention to some selected medallions that are typical for their time.

New finds of Roman provincial bronze medallions on the territory of Ukraine / Kyrylo Myzgin

Source:

Notae Numismaticae 10 (2015) p. 103-114, pl. 1-2

Abstract:

Until recently, we had known of only one Roman provincial bronze medallion from the territory of Ukraine. It was found near the village Raiky, Zhytomyr oblast’, in 1930 (a medallion of Elagabalus, minted at Philippopolis in Thrace). The present article describes 5 Roman provincial medallions found recently in Ukraine: 1 medallion of Hadrian from Ephesus (Ionia), 1 medallion of Septimius Severus and 2 of Caracalla, struck at Pergamon (Mysia), and a medallion of Elagabalus from Philippopolis (Thrace). Apart from the medallions, East-European finds of Roman bronze coins of lesser denominations, dating mostly from the 230s–260s, are not rare. On the other hand, the medallions in question belong to a group of the earlier, less common, finds of provincial coinage. It should be noted that while the Roman provincial bronze coins minted in the cities of Asia Minor in the mid-2nd – early 3rd century, are known, for the most part, from the territories on the left bank of the Dnieper, the medallions (mostly from Asia Minor as well) have been found in the area on the right bank of the Dnieper. It may be indicative of certain specific methods of how they reached the Barbarian populations, the methods that were different than in the case of the other Roman provincial bronze coinage of the early 3rd century.

Constantine's vicennalia and the death of Crispus / Lars Ramskold

Niš & Byzantium 11 (2013) p. 409-456

Abstract:

Combining numismatic and epigraphic evidence, Constantine’s vicennial celebration journey from Nicomedia to Rome is reconstructed. Donatives were produced on each major stop along the way. Newly discovered dynastic bronzes struck in Rome on Constantine’s arrival include Crispus, which shows that the caesar still was alive. The subsequent issue struck in Rome, before Constantine’s departure, lacks Crispus. The caesar thus fell from grace during the vicennial celebrations in Rome in July-August 326. The study identifies and defines all major vicennial celebration issues struck by Constantine. The illustrated examples include 38 gold solidi and multiples, 12 siliquae, 29 dynastic bronzes, and several forgeries.

Showing Rome in the round : reinterpreting the 'commemorative medallions' of Antoninus Pius / [Clare Rowan]

Source:

Antichthon 48 (2014). p.. 109-125

Abstract:

This article re-examines the 'commemorative medallions' of Antoninus Pius, a series of medallions showing the early history of Rome. It is suggested that these pieces should be seen not in a Saecular Games context but as a continuation of Hadrianic precedent, probably connected with the construction of the Temple of Venus and Rome. These medallions represent a wider imperial emphasis on the distant past under both Hadrian and Antoninus Pius, an interest that we observe in other coin types, public building works and perhaps also works of literature. A detailed examination of these Pius medallions reveals that their iconography was drawn from earlier types, and that they in turn inspired later imagery. This phenomenon reveals a certain intertextuality in numismatic language, and suggests that coin imagery did not merely grace Rome's currency, but was recorded and was accessible to later generations. These medallions, truly 'monuments in miniature', reveal a new understanding of Pius' reign and his (self-)presentation as Hadrian's successor.

Abstract:

In 1902 a famous hoard of Roman gold coins and twenty medallions representing Alexander the Great was discovered in Aboukir/Egypt. Starting from the five specimen now kept in the Berlin Muenzkabinett this papers focuses on their function, use and date. Their allegeded use prize money awarded to victorious athletes is doubted in favour of gifts by the High-priest  Makedoniarchos) to high ranking visitors at Beroia during the reign of Severus Alexander. The ties to these games held in honour of Alexander the Great at Beroia in Makedonia appear even stronger when re-examining earlier arguments by Heinrich Dressel and Hugo Gaebler.
