This was Nomos AG's second auction in Zürich. The sale began with a nice group of Celtic issues, and then moved on to the Greek world, ranging from a small but lovely piece minted in Provence, to coins minted by Greek kings in India and Egypt. Among the Roman coins is a rare denarius of Geta as Caesar with a detailed view of the Temple of Roma in Rome, and a medaillion of Constantine I, struck to celebrate the dedication of Constantinople in 330. The sale ended with a small group of great rarities: a unique Byzantine usurper, an extremely rare Islamic dinar minted in Carthage, and two very rare Renaissance gold pieces - from Ferrara and Rhodes. Some amazing coins.
