9781330807194: The Numismatic Chronicle and Journal of the Royal Numismatic Society, 1858, Vol. 19 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Numismatic Chronicle and Journal of the Royal Numismatic Society, 1858, Vol. 19

Sir,

I have much pleasure in laying before the Numismatic Society this evening, copies, in gutta percha, of two very curious coins lately acquired by the British Museum; the first of which bears the name on it of the celebrated city of Nineveh.

Though extremely rare, it is not actually unique - a similar coin having been described by M. Sestini.

The obverse bears the bust of the Emperor Trajan with the legend Imp. Traian. Cae. Avg. Ger. The reverse, an eagle with expanded wings between military standards, and the legend Col. Avg. Feli. Nini. Clav.

There is no reason to doubt that the coin must have been struck to commemorate the foundation of a Roman colony at this place by the Emperor Claudius, who founded many similar colonies in many parts of the East.
