Harlan J. Berk, Ltd. has presented an innovation in antiquities and numismatics for some time now. The system is simple. When you want an antiquity or coin in the sale, 
just bid the estimated price by phone, fax, web site, email or post. We will send you the antiquity or coin immediately. No waiting for the closing of the sale. Any and all 
antiquities or coins not sold before the closing date will be sent to the highest bidder on October 28, 2008 at 4 PM. 

EXAMPLE — You bid estimate on an item valued at $100.00 and if your bid is the 1st to reach us, you will receive the item immediately. If on the other hand, you bid $75.00 
on the same item and are still the high bidder at the end of the sale, the item will be mailed to you after the closing date, October 28, 2008 at 4 PM. 

If you are ever in the area, stop in to see us! Of course, it’s best to call first. Harlan J. Berk, Ltd. reserves the right to refuse any bids.

archaic version done in raised incuse reiief. This is an extremeiy wonderfui stater 
of Poseidonia. A young Poseidon is depicted on the obverse and whereas the 
reverse is normaiiy very soft and featureiess, this shows a vigorous sharpiy drawn 
image of a mature Poseidon. It appears that this is a transitionai coin within the 
series. Whiie researching this coin we studied over 100 cataiogs dating back to 
the 1890’s and found the obverse die twice in the ANS and in Babeion, but we did 
not find an exampie of the reverse die. It seems apparent that Poseidonia issued 
a iarge amount of coins with many dies and die combinations that appear not to 
have survived. This is simiiar to the siiver coins of Pescennius Niger, where there 
are many types, but they are aii rare. This coin wouid certainiy be among the 
highiights in anyone’s coiiection of Greek siiver. EF/Mint State SOLD

270-265 BC, 2.70g., Unpublished. Rx: Symbol: elephant head 3/4 left facing with 
large ears and tusks. This symbol surely relates to the victory of Antiochus III 
over barbarians in 269 BC. The Galatian tribes crossed the Hellespont in winter 
of 278/7. Some of them served briefly as mercenaries in the army of Nicomedes 
of Bithynia, but then they were set loose to ravage Asia Minor. The three tribes 
divided Asia Minor into raiding districts. The Trocmi took the Hellespontine 
coast, the Tolistobogii claimed Aeolis and Ionia, and the Tectosages drew the 
inland. Places known to have been raided or threatened/extorted include 
Cyzicus (278/7), the sanctuary at Didyma (277/6), Phene and Erythrae (270s), 
Thyatira, Laocidea on the Lycus, and perhaps Limyra or other places in Lycia. 
In 269 BC, Antiochus I drove the barbarians out of Asia Minor. Antiochus I was 
honored as Soter (Savior) by the Ionian League and at Bargylia in Caria. The 
“Elephant Victory” was commemorated by terracotta statuettes at Myrina and by 
a poet from Magnesia ad Sipylum. Mint State 1500

is unknown to history, and the identity of the kneeling figure on the rev. has been 
subject to considerable controversy. The scene evidently refers to the submission 
of Aristobulus the High Priest to Pompey; the alternative explanation, that 
Baccius refers to Dionysus of Tripoli (mentioned in Josephus), derives solely from 
the similarity between the Greek Dionysus and the Latin Bacchus, and seems 
implausible at best. Mint State 450

Numonia-2. Obv: Head r., of Numonius Vaala with features of Caesar. Rx: 
Warrior I. attacking a vallum defended by two soldiers, VAALA in exergue. The 
portrait, though unnamed, is surely that of Caesar. Other denarii of the same 
year portrayed Octavian and Brutus, also without naming them. The confusion 
and uncertainty of Roman politics in the years following the murder of Caesar 
is thus graphically reflected on the coins. This” secret” propaganda war cannot 
have pleased Octavian, although two of the three types (including the present 
coin) favored his interests. 40 BC saw a last emission from the legal college of 
moneyers, this time tightly controlled by Octavian. After that the official issues 
cease, and the “personal” coinage of Antony and Octavian becomes the coinage 
of the State. Extremely rare (R8 in Sydenham) and important; among the finest 
known. Ex Lawrence Collection, Glendining, 1950, 270; ex Bement Collection,

shield at r. side of palm tree, another shield at her feet; at left side of tree a Jew 
stands I., his arms tied behind him, looking either outwards at us or back r. over 
his shoulder, a helmet is on the ground at his feet. Very rare variant. Kraay, in his 
die study of Vespasian’s sestertii of 71 , found only one reverse die with the Jew 
at left of palm tree, standing left but looking back right, and with S C in exergue. 
Our coin shows a new, second, reverse die of this type, or possibly a totally new 
variant, with the Jew’s head turned front instead of right. Unfortunately the light 
pitting at upper left of the reverse prevents us from deciding for sure which way 
the head is turned. Our obverse die too was unknown to Kraay, judging from our 
photocopy of his unpublished Oxford dissertation. Slight 19th-century cleaning.

reading “Shamash, Aja”, the sun god and his consort, a common inscription 
on Old Babylonian seals of northern Babylonia. The tablet is a standard 
format contract for a loan without interest. The text on an envelope is usually a 
somewhat abbreviated version of the complete authoritative inner tablet. Though

ca. 1000 B.C. This oval amulet is modeled in Egyptian Blue, which is known 
in the Egyptian context but is more common in Near Eastern work, particularly 
Persian. As faience is often thought of as a ceramic substitute for turquoise, so 
too is Egyptian Blue thought of as a substitute for lapis lazuli. L. 1/2” 750

590. FAIENCE USHABTI, Third Intermediate Period, ca. 1567-1085 B.C This is an 

unusual type of ushabti from the late New Kingdom to the Third Intermediate 
Period. It retains some features of New Kingdom ushabtis but is done in a 
medium more common in the Third Intermediate Period. Namely, it is in a light 
blue faience with painted black detailing. It has a much more unusually elongated 
body and the wig is of a more unusual style. L. 4 1/8” 750 

591. GLAZED STEATITE POLYCHROME FRAGMENT, New Kingdom, ca. 1567- 

1035 B.C. This fragment probably comes from an altar vessel or a panel from 
a small altar. It is finished on both sides with lotus bud columns framing arches 
that are in-filled with black and red pigment. The overall glazing of the steatite 
is blue against a whitish background. An unusual piece of high quality Egyptian

592. RARE EGYPTIAN STELE FRAGMENT OF FOREIGNERS IN HOMAGE, 

Ramesside, Dynasty 19/20, ca. 1293-1070 B.C. This stele is a rare example of 
foreigners in Egyptian art. The piece is cut in limestone in shallow relief with traces of 
original pigment. The three figures are making offerings and honoring a pharaoh. In 
order, they are a Western Asiatic or Mesopotamian, a Nubian and another Asiatic, 
possibly a Syro-Phoenician. Before each suppliant there are tables of offerings 
draped with gold collars. The inscription to the right of this scene has remains of 
blue and red pigments and bears the personal name of Tjairy. This name occurs 
on a Leiden Museum statue dating from the 20th Dynasty (reign of Setnakht or 
Ramesses III), this is possibly the same person. Next to the column of hieroglyphs 
there is a partial relief of a figure’s hand and body. L. 14 1/2” H. 9” 25000

with good remaining glaze and a T-form register of glyphs. The owner’s name 
may be “Hor-udja.” H. 4 1/4” 450

one side of the plaque is depicted Ptah, holding a was-scepter, with the signs for 
“Re” and “goodness” in front. One could theoretically translate “the goodness of 
Re” - a wish for the plaque’s owner. The other side shows the god Re-Horakhty, 
falcon-headed with a uraeus-and-disk on his head. He, too, grasps a was-scepter. 
The hieroglyphs in front of him say “goodness” and “praise” - again, expressing 
these good things for the plaque’s owner. L. 5/8” 850 

597. FAIENCE USHABTI, Late Period, ca. 715-330 B.C. Of standard mummiform 

shape with T-form glyphs down the front. “Illuminate the Osiris Di-ptah-hotep (?),

amulet of the popular Egyptian deity, Bes, with superb brilliant blue glazed faience. 
Amulets of Bes were particularly worn in life, especially by women and children,

face, pointing tongue, and prominent ears, one of which is now missing. A wonderful 
example of the much sought after glossy brilliant blue faience. L. 1 1/8” 550 

601 . BRONZE OSIRIS FIGURE, Late Period, ca. 715-330 B.C. The God Osiris stands 

on a square base. He wears the Atef crown, worn in certain religious rituals, and 
a form fitting robe. He holds a crook, which is a scepter symbolizing government, 
and flail. Unusually well done with neat, precise lines indicating the details. Intact

an old collector’s name written on the lower body of the piece. H. 2 1/4”.. ..1 250 

606. NEAR EASTERN TERRACOTTA STRAINER, ca. 500 B.C. This is a wonderful 

example of an ancient strainer or sieve in near perfect condition. The piece has a 
broad half circle body with two lug handles and it is perforated through the bottom 
half to allow the escape of either water or seeds. It is very unusual to find a utility 
piece such as this intact. Such a piece would have been an important component 
of ancient food preparation tools, either for sifting grains or for washing. This is a 
large and completely intact piece with no restorations, some minor degradation of 
the surface and earthen encrustation. Dia. 13 1/2” 4 3/4” 950

61 4. A RARE JEWISH MENORAH OIL LAMP, Talmudic Period, ca. 4th-5th cent. A.D. A 

rare circular lamp with a very small pointed nozzle, the discus molded with a seven- 
branched menorah. Objects of special iconographic significance were featured on 
oil lamps, typically after the late Hellenistic period. Ancient Jewish settlements and 
cemeteries in Eretz-lsrael from the Hellenistic period on have revealed oil lamps 
made for the use of Jews and are decorated in a style that corresponds with the 
spirit of the faith. The Menorah was a seven-branched candelabrum in the Temple, 
and is described in detail in the Book of Exodus (25:31-40). The representation 
of a menorah on an oil lamp in earlier periods was rather rare. It was not until 
after later Roman times that it became more commonplace. The menorah is 
described as having a larger or smaller number of branches than seven- probably 
a reflection of the Talmudic prohibition of producing a replica of the Menorah in 
the Temple. Thus, many early versions of the menorah depict a different number 
of branches. The menorah pattern with seven branches began to appear by the 
fourth century A.D. as a symbol of renewal and redemption when restrictions had 
somewhat relaxed. The piece is in excellent condition with heavy encrustation 
and soot staining around the wick hole. No restoration. A rare historical piece. 
L. 3 5/8” 15000

of ancient iron weaponry. Iron, being a much less noble metal, is less resistant to 
corrosion than bronze, making it somewhat rare to find an example of ancient iron 
weaponry. This arrowhead is of leaf shape with a small shaft. It is intact but with a 
bend in the center. Rust and earthen patina. L. 2 1/2” 425

hands tied behind his back. He has a downward gaze that portents his sacrifice 
to the gods. Light brown terracotta with iight biack body tattoos seen on the face, 
and an open ended top. This piece may be a portrait of an actuai individuai that

very reaiistic and expressive. This piece is very iarge for the type and is repaired 
from three iarge fragments. Ex Steve Berger Coiiection. Ex Arte Textiie, San 
Francisco, CA. H. 14 3/4” 4000 

635. PERUVIAN NAZCA POLYCHROME POTTERY VESSEL, ca. 200-500 A.D. 

Shaiiow bowi, the interior painted in shades of red, brown and white with the 
figure of a bird, two sharks, and a iinear design. No restoration with minor chip to

long fig tree branches hanging down by the sides of his head. To the right of the 
panei there are severai attendant figures. The piece has a iotus ieaf border and is

Gandharan artists are among the very first to represent the Buddha in human form. 
L. 8 1/2” H. 7” 1450

unusuai Eastern Javanese stupa has a circuiar doubie iotus base with various 
circuiar discs running the iength. The base of the spire, which is now broken, 
is decorated in a styiized ieaf design. A stupa is one of the originai Buddhist 
monuments with a circuiar body and a iong spire. Legend has it that on his deathbed 
the Buddha was asked how he wanted to be remembered and he simpiy turned 
his rice bowi over, signifying that he wished nothing. The overturned rice bowi then

noticeabiy a figure of Hindu inspiration which is often found in Thai art. Thus, the 
piece probabiy represents a yogi or an ascetic. Good condition with a dark oiive
