Title:

The power of images : coin portraits of Roman emperors on jewellery pendants in early Southeast Asia / Brigitte Borell

Zeitschrift für Archäologie Außereuropäischer Kulturen 6 (2014) p. 9-43

Abstract:

This contribution presents fi nds of jewellery pendants with imitations of Roman coins from Southeast Asia. The examples from Óc Eo in southern Vietnam have been known already since the 1940s. The state of our knowledge has now been broadened by the fi nds from U Thong and Khlong Thom in Thailand. In some cases, the great faithfulness of the imitations permits an exact identifi cation of the original prototype. The fi nd of a mould leads to the conclusion of local production. The custom of wearing Roman coins or their imitations as pendants is documented by numerous fi nds from southern India. The equivalent phenomenon in Southeast Asia is to be seen in the context of the network of maritime routes. In the early centuries after the turn of the era, their connections extended from the South China Sea to the Mediterranean. Questions arise regarding the reception and meaning of the depictions on these jewellery pendants in their respective Eastern environment.

Gough’s second edition of Camden’s 'Britannia'contains a description of a gold Roman coin-ring from Benniworth, Lincolnshire, identified as a counterfeit of Probus. Re-examination of the evidence suggests the coin may have been an aureus of Geta.

Ritratti di ‘Augustae’ nella gioielleria monetale di età romana : raccolta e sintesi preliminare di dati / Erica Filippini

Abstract:

Even though they entail different specific functions and meanings, works of coin jewellery also manifest an ideological value that is closely linked with the celebration of the imperial institution derived from the fact that men and women from the domus Augusta are portrayed on these coins. From this point of view, considering the timeline spanning from the early to mid Imperial Age, this paper aims to showcase the presence of female portraits on coins which were reused for the creation of jewels used for personal adornment.

A box mirror made from two Antinous medallions of Smyrna / Sebastian Heath

Source:

American Journal of Numismatics 2nd ser. 18 (2006) p. 63-74, pl. 5-7

Abstract:

The ANS has acquired a box mirror formed from two Antinous medallions of Smyrna. Consideration of the techniques of manufacture and comparison with other modified coins of Antinous support the antiquity of the manufacture of the mirror. The combination of a portrait of Antinous, a Dionysiac reverse in the form of a female panther, and an internal mirrored surface is the starting point for an examination of the cultural context of this piece.

La patera di Rennes: analisi numismatica / Anna Lina Morelli

Abstract

The patera of Rennes is an extraordinary find not only because of its great intrinsic value, but also for the strong symbolic component that characterizes it. The analyses of the golden coins that were reused to decorate it, highlight the construction of a precise ideological course, meticulously studied regarding both the choice of issues and the pre-established sequence of thevarious samples. The patera is an authentic  istorical-dynastic reconstruction and legitimates the Severan succession and the proclamation of continuity within the domus augusta, from which the concept of aeternitas of Rome and of the imperial institution itself derives.

Abstract:

Considering the system of Imperial gifts at the beginning of the 4th century AD, through the analysis of all the archaeological items currently known, this paper aims to make some observations on the connections between the Imperial mints and the silver largitio dishes made for the fifth anniversary of Licinius II Caesar (AD 321).

L’anello da Amiens : un caso di studio per la gioielleria monetale romana / Claudia Perassi

Offprint from: Oggetti-simbolo : produzione, uso e significato nel mondo antico / a cura Isabella Baldini Lippolis, Anna Lina Morelli. - Bologna : Ante Quem, cop. 2011. - P. 173-194

Abstract:

A gold ring in which a gold quinarius coin of Maximinus Thrax was discovered by chance in Amiens (Somme) in 1790. The coin became a part of the Pellerin collection and was already described and illustrated by Count Caylus in the fifth volume of his Recueil d’antiquités (1762), now kept in the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris and to this day is still one of the most lavish coin rings known. The ring was chosen to explore the chronological, typological and social aspects of this kind of coin jewellery as to compensate for the lack of reliable contemporary literary and iconographic sources that could approach it.

Le cavigliere di Heliodora : fonti scritte per lo studio della gioielleria monetale romana / Claudia Perassi

Note:

Offprint from: Rivista Italiana di Numismatica 115 (2014) p. 139-172, pl. 5-7

Abstract:

Roman literary, juridical and papyrological sources provide a wide range of information concerning Roman jewellery. Some of them are usually related to jewels (pendants, bracelets, rings) on which coins were set as ornaments. The goal of the paper is to analyse these sources to ascertain their actual relation to monetary jewellery. Starting from a lexical analysis the essay compares them with our always deeper knowledge of Roman monetary jewels and with the realia, i.e. the coin jewels which are survived to us. The conclusion of this study is that no available literary source can be undoubtedly related to this particular typology of Roman jewellery.
