Himyarite Silver Coin - C.7489
Price: $650.00
The Himyarite Confederacy ruled Ancient Yemen, an important stop on the trade routes to India. Though never conquered by the Romans, their coinage reflects a Classical influence. This concave coin, base on Athenian prototypes, bears the portrait of a beardless man who resembles the Roman Emperor Augustus. Even in a world that seems as far away to our age as Classical Antiquity, this was a token of distant and exotic land. - (C.7489)Origin: Yemen Circa: 1 AD to 200 AD Collection: Numismatics Style: Himyarite Medium: Silver
