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 antiqui- 
ties or coins not sold before the closing date will be sent to the highest bidder on November 7, 2012. 

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, November 7, 2012. 

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.

Unpublished Die 

20. CARTHAGE; 350-320 BC, Gold Stater. 9.30g. Jenkins/Lewis-close to 66. Obv: Tanit 

crowned wtih gratin. Rx: Horse. Ex NFA, XXXIII 1994, lot 330. The Jenkins and Lewis 
work on Carthage is very complete. There are very few times when we have not found 
a die represented. This is one of those times. The sub-class are dies #61-68. This is 
painfully close to #66, but is not. The thing that sets off this small sub-class is a strand 
of hair coming out from the back of her neck under her hair bun. The other interesting 
aspect of this coin is that the two wheal ears arc nearly parallel where as normally the 
second one is almost at a 90 degree angle to the first. This particular coin has a little bit 
of a Punic hardness but a lot of the Sicilian sweetness. Exquisite Mint State 13750

This coin was purchased by the famous author of the U.S. Pattern book Dr. Hewett 
T. Judd of Wichita, Kansas in the 1950s. In the 1960s thieves broke into his house 
hoping to steal his U.S, pattern collection, instead they took his ancient coins. These 
were then kept in the home of a mafia member for at least a decade. When they came 
into the market in about 1970 they were quickly identified as the stolen coins of Dr. 
Judd. When we brought the coins years later to show them to Dr. Judd, then a man in 
his mid-80s, he said with a twinkle in his eye that these were not his coins. Of course 
the insurance company had already paid him a princely sum for his stolen collection. 
While the head of the Nymph Euboia is archaized and somewhat pedestrian, the 
reverse is exquisite. The artist had a wonderful knowledge of the cows of Euboea 
and this one reclines beautifully on the planchet with a lush bunch of grapes above.

didrachm is somewhat unclear. If the symbol is eagle standing right, head left, on 
thunderbolt, our coin would be the first attested didrachm in Kleiner/Noe’s Series 2. 
The mintmark TPA rather than the normal TPAA, otherwise attested only in Kleiner/ 
Noe’s Series la (p. 60). might seem to confirm the early date. But that identification 
of the symbol must remain doubtful, since our coin is stylistically quite different

Heracles was a cryptic portrait of Mausolus and the veiled female head a likeness of 
his wife Artemisia. He pointed out that these coins date from the reign of Ada, not 
that of Artemisia, so that the reverse type is far more likely to depict the last queen 
of the Hecatomnid dynasty. In Meadows’ view, however, a divine head is more 
plausible, either that of Demeter or an eponymous female deity. Ex Superior, 30 May

specimens of this coin from a hoard, apparently also with COS X on the column. 

are published in Lyon. Supplement II, 676b-c; ours may be only the fourth recorded. 
This curious reverse type, which has puzzled numismatists for centuries, seems to 
be an adaptation of the similar Saecular Games type of Philip I to commemorate 
Diocletian's decennalian vows. The legend SAECVLARES AVGG and the type of 
cippus inscribed COS in the top line have been taken over from Philip's type, which 
showed the monumental marble inscription set up to record and commemorate his 
millenial games of 248. The X beneath the COS on the cippus. however, together 
with MXX added in the exergue, must refer to Dioeletain's decennalia, VOTIS X 
MVLTIS XX. as on the contemporaneous Lugdunese antoniniani with reverse VOT 
/ X M XX in three lines in wreath. Diocletian, after all, was only COS V in 294, 
and not COS X until 308. three years after his abdication in 305! It may be doubted 
whether there was actually anything "saecular" or any connection to the birthday 
of Rome in the celebration of Diocletian's decennalia in 293-4; this may be just 
a conceit of the mint ofLugdunum to commemorate what were in fact ordinary 
decennalian celebrations. See Bastion's discussion, w'ith a somewhat different 
interpretation, in Lyon, pp. 73-75. A great rarity of major importance. Mint State

REMARKABLE BUST OF CONSTANTINOPOLIS ON ANONYMOUS 
SILVER FRACTION STRUCK FOR THE CITY’S DEDICATION 
Constantinople. 330 AD. AR one-third siliqua, 1 .04. Simon Bendall, Anonymous 
Silver. Rev. Num. 158. 2002. no. 4; Cohen Constantine 11-287 (80 Fr.). Obv: No 
legend. Draped bust of Constantinopolis r.. seen from front, wearing pearl diadem 
with semicircular extension above ear and ties at back, and pearl necklace. Rx: 

Large letter K. Fine border of dots on both sides. The portrait on this rare coin 

has been identified as Fausta (Cohen. Fausta-23), Helena (D. Vagi. Coinage and 
History II, no. 3052). Theodora (Triton VIII. 2005, 1251), or Constantine II (Cohen, 
Constantine 11-287), but the Greek K on reverse should indicate that she is instead 
the personification of Constantinopolis, The only other letter found on the early 
coins of this sort is the Greek rho for Roma, coupled with a helmeted bust of Roma 
on the obverse. And indeed, as Bendall points out. a portrait exactly like that on 
our coin, including the unexplained semicircular addition to the pearl diadem, is 
actually labeled CONSTANTINOPOLIS on an anonymous bronze coin, RIC VIII 
pi. 9, 106. which on Bendall's suggestion should also be attributed to the mint of 
Constantinopolis and dated to the celebratory issue for the city's dedication in 330 

AD. Aside from the usual images of Constantinopolis wearing a crown of towers 


or a helmet, a figure of Constantinopolis seated, with her hair visible as on our coin 
and possibly also wearing a diadem, appears on gold medallions of Constantins 11, 
Constans, and Vaicns, Gnecchi Mcdaglioni I. pi. 9.13, pi. 1 1,9-10, pi. 13.1-2, pi.

NOBILITAS dupondius in particular is apparently only the third or fourth specimen

found only one specimen of this dupondius, namely the one in Paris described by 
Cohen. Only one further specimen. CNG 63. 2 1 May 2003. lot 1501. seems to

piece, or another, third, specimen. Ours, which is from the same die pair as the CNG 
specimen, is thus apparently only the third or fourth such dupondius recorded. Since 
it was acquired in Turkey about fifty years ago. covered in heavy deposits which we 

have removed, our coin can hardly be identical with the Wiczay example. F 400

Above, two lines border the seal. Below, a small hatch pattern with small drill points 
borders the face of the seal. On the top or the bottom. 4 drill points surround the 
central hole. A very nice example of period in a patinated stone, cf: Ashmolean. 36. 
24 mm 500 

697. SYRIAN CH.ALCEDONY SEAL, ca. 3100-2750 BC. A linear cut seal of two faces: 
both a cylinder and a stamp seal. The cylinder itself depicts a series of geometric 
patterns, possibly representing a building and a figure, mid point in the impression, 
of a man facing left with outstretched arms. On the bottom of the seal is a stamp 
impression of a solar rosette engraved with discrete drill points and simple cuts. 

The seal is pierced on the top of the piece, through an offset loop. An interesting seal, 
particularly because of the manner of mount the piece has (offset loop at the lop), cf: 
Ashmolean, 729 a. Also see Frankfort, p. 232 and pi. I. c and pi. XXXVIII. c. J, k for 
similar. 35 mm 750 

698. NEAR EASTERN LAPIS LAZULI CYLINDER SEAL. Early Dynasties Period. 
ED I, ca. 2750-2600 BC. A line of gazelle walking left. There is a double border on 
the bottom portion of the seal. This piece was cut at one point in time, likely to have 
been done in antiquity. A portion of the heads and antlers are missing from the seal 
itself As well, there is no evidence of a top border on the seal. Very possibly from a 
double register. 

cf Ashmolean. 106 for complete piece. 12 mm 850 

699. NEAR EASTERN STEATITE CYLINDER SEAL, ca. 2nd Millenium BC. Made 

similarly to a bead, this example has four sections with engraved pairs of flowers. 
Each section is separated with a two lines and at the bottom has a dotted border. 
Missing top portion. 16 mm 300 

700. NEAR EASTERN SERPENTINTTE CAMEO BEAD SEAL, Elamite Provincial, 

ca. 1900-1700 BC. Cameo bead of two seated men facing each other, with a table in 
between. Behind them is a man standing, facing right, with hands raised. Partitions 
separate scenes on the seal. 20 mm 500 

701. NEAR EASTERN OLD BABYLONIAN .AGATE DUCK BEAD, ca. 1800 BC. 

This piece is sculpted in the fashion of the famous Babylonian Sumerian duck 
weights, however it is pierced for suspension like a seal or bead. Carved in smokey 
agate. L. 13,77 mm 400 

702. NEAR EASTERN NEO-ASSYRIAN CHALCEDONY CYLINDER SEAL, Cut 
Style, ca. 800-700 BC. A contest frieze in cut style of a winged griffon facing left, head 
forward paw raised and phallis extended chasing a deer, rushing to the left head turned 
back to the right. Above, a Rhomb, star and crescent moon. Double entendre meant 
in the example, as the griffon is a masculine figure and the deer, a clear reference to 
feminine deities, particularly to Ishtar. The scene takes place in the Celestial gardens, 
as is evidenced from the plants surrounding. A chip on the seal above the deer’s head, 
cf BMC V 64 (var.) A significant example of Neo- Assyrian early seal work. 39 mm .

703. PHOENICIAN BLUE CHALCEDONY SEAL, ca. 8th-7th Century BC. A 

Phoenician or Western Semitic seal. A deer with large antlers faces right with suckling 
deer left and a bird facing left on back. Encompassed in a linear border. Engraving 
style is crude with heavy use of drill points and linear cuts. 16 mm 950 

704. NEAR EASTERN BLACK AND WHITE MARBLE CYLINDER SEAL, Late 
Neo-Babylonian-Proto Achaemenid, 650-550 BC. An altar with a domed top, 
flanked on cither side by winged recumbent sphinx facing inwards. Above, a winged 
solar disk, cf BMC VI, 84 and Pierpont Morgan, pi. CXXVl. 841 (stamp seal), 
both Achaemenid variations on the subject. This seal, though very worn, is a very 
interesting and quiet rare example for the period. While animals flanking trees of 


life or altars arc in themselves more eommon place than not, the lack of examples 
in at least standard references shows the importance of this variation on the standing 

sphinx. 23 mm 950 

705. NE.VR E.VSTERiN BL.VCK .VND W HITE l\ ()RN CA LINDER SEAL, Proto- 
Achaemenid Period, ca. 650 - 550 DC. Two rampant ibexes flank a tree of life. Both 
ibexes have their heads turned backwards, facing away from the sacred tree. There is 
a sun over the head of the left ibex. On bottom of seal: E 4 13 (Old catalogue number). 
The seal has been reconstrticted from fragments (at least 3). Of extremely fine style. 
A very impre,ssivc seal. See BMC VI, 79-80 for comparisons. The style of catalogue 
number on this piece is reminiscent of the cataloguing of Louis Delaporte, former 
curator of the Louvre. (1842-1925) in that he would start the catalogue number 
with the first letter of the name of the collection, then give a number to the piece. 
Delaporte's largest cataloguing job obviously was the Louvre Collection, however 
this piece cannot be from the Louvre Collection because the museum has no 
Collections catalogued starting with the letter E. Delaporte was responsible however 
for cataloguing several of the most important French collections of his day, including 
Guimet and Biblioteque Nationale. Though there is no match in the Guimet catalogue, 
Biblioteque Nationale is a possibility but is an extremely rare reference. It is plausible 
as well to suggest that he would have catalogued private collections as well, not only 
in France, but for others as well in Europe, including private collections. In any case, 
even if Delaporte didn't catalogue this particular seal, the cataloguing number on this 
piece follows very likely the same type cataloguing system that French collections 
from the period followed. This is significant because it offers a potential lead to where 
the seal's original cataloguing was done. It is also worth mentioning here as well that 
the coloring on this piece appears to be deliberately done. The Achaemenids had the 
ability to influence and change the color of quartzite and Chalcedony using date sugar 
and heat. Bone is not typically seen done in this way, but it is equally possible that it 
could be treated in this manner, as it’s a porous material. Banding was at the time a 
very desirable trait in stones as well, one that often shows up. As well, having light 
and dark sides on seals was used - see Rasmussen. 34 for a Neo-Assyrian example that 
follows type. Though it is a reconstructed example, it is an extremely fine example. 41

708. EGYPTIAN LIMESTONE OSTRACON (STONE FLAKE WITH A HEAD- 
SH.4VTNG SCENE). New Kingdom, ca. 1 550-1069 BC. A comment concerning the 
function of chapels for worship in the village of Deir el-Medina and the function of 
lay priesthood follows from the book Pharaoh's Workers: "The workmen themselves 
engaged in the simple priestly activities documented; the villagers probably had no 
professional clergy, though some chapels had attached chambers or guard houses. 
Serving as priests for the processions they conducted ones, though the titles of 
"lector”, "fan bearer" and "bak” (servant) are also known. 

From: Pharaoh's Workers, the Villagers of Deir el-Medina, Leonard FI. Lesko, Editor. 
Cornell University Press 1994, page 90-93. A scene from everyday life is depicted 
here, where the seated figure, wearing a red shoulder-strap and attached garment 
typical of the New Kingdom, is attended by another figure, grasping a red razor in 
his left hand and steadying the attendee's head in his right. This standing figure with 
a delicately rendered face, is garbed in a tight-fitting kilt-loincloth and red belt, his 
right foot braced against the attendee’s folded knees. Likely represents part of the 
preparation to attend service in temple ritual required of priests— though Ancient 
Egyptians regularly opted for shaving for practical cleanliness and hygiene in general. 
These stone flake drawings were created by tomb artists in an impromptu fashion 
upon stone flakes produced during the quarrying of tombs and inspired by events seen 
or remembered in their daily lives. A relevant scene of daily life at the apex of the 
Egyptian epoch. From the Theban area, village of Deir el-Medina. H. 5 5/8” (14 cm)

709. EGYPTIAN DARK BI,UE FAIENCE IMSETY AMULET, Late Period, ca. 715- 

330 BC. The four sons of Horus were responsible for protecting the internal organs 
of the deceased. Each of the four gods was associated with a particular canopic jar 
and its contents. From the late 1 8th Dynasty onwards the lids of the canopic jars were 
modeled in the forms of the four gods- jackal, baboon, hawk and man. Depictions 
and paintings of the four sons consisted of human figures with their characteristic 
head. Imscty protected the liver and was depicted as a human headed figure, mostly 
mummiform. Excellent style. Mounted. L. 2 1/8” (5.4 cm) 950 

710. EGYPTIAN FAIENCE PATAIKOS AMULET. Late Period, ca, 715-330 BC. 

Green glazed faience representation of the minor Egyptian amulctic deity, 
pataikos. The Egyptian pataikos, a small human figure with bald human head, standing 
in a pose similar to the dwarf-god Bes, is identified with ‘Ptah the dwarf. Suspension

712. FiGYPTIAN BRONZE WINGED ISIS, Late Period, 715-30 BC. Isis was 

worshipped as the ideal wife and mother and was the Egyptian protector of the dead 
and goddess of children. A popular goddess, she was devoted to slaves, sinners, 
artisans, the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats and rulers. The Egyptians believed that the 
Nile would flood every year due to the tears of sorrow caused for her dead husband. 
Osiris. In our piece we find and unusual standing type with wings outstretched in 
front of her. .She wears a bronze crown with a solar disk, horns of I lathor and a Uraeus 
adorns the front forehead. The right wing has been lost in antiquity. The feet of this 
piece have been restored. Mounted. II. 6” ( 1 5 cm) 2500 

713. FiGYP I IAN BRONZE .SEATED IIARPCK RATES. Late Period, ca. 715-330 BC. 
Shown seated, with shaved head and sidelock, Horus has his feet on the ground, his 
arms at his sides, and is nude except for a uraeus serpent atop his head. Ilorus-the- 
child is often shown seated on the lap of his mother Isis, nursing at her breast, but the 


square base on which his feet rest suggests that this piece was independent of a larger 
statue ensemble. Ex Midwest Collection formed before 1967, Mounted. H. 4” (10

716 EGYPTIAN HELLENISTIC TERRACOTTA HEAD OF A NEGRO, ca. 3rd to 
1st Century BC. This nicely modeled head of a black African is truly a rare piece. 
Sculpted in the Alexandrian workshops of Hellenistic Egypt, the head has a muscular 
face, and rounded African eyes. The ancient Greeks and Romans prized images of 
Negroes, since the black African - far from representing the typical image of the 
foreigner, an image of conquest and servitude - symbolized the exotic. As in ancient 
times. Classical images of Black Africans are much sought after by modem collectors.

717. GREEK RHODIAN TERRACOTTA PLASTIC APHRODITE VESSEL, ca. mid 

6th Century BC. Aphrodite stands holding the material of her himation in one hand, 
her other had at her side clutching the material of the chiton she wears under the 
himation. She is wearing a polos which is actually the lip of the vessel. There is a chip 
from the left cheek and polos. Crack at the waist, otherwise intact with no restoration. 
H. 10” 3000 

718. GREEK TERRACOTTA SPHINX, ca. 3rd Century BC. The sphinx originated in 

Egypt, where it was probably a representation of royalty (the body of a lion with the 
head of a man), the idea of this mythological monster found its way to Greece from 
the Near East - where it had in the meantime undergone the change that made sphinxes 
into women. Greek mythology writes that the region of Thebes was devastated by 
a fabulous monster with the face and bust of a woman, the body of a lion and the 
wings of a bird. Guarding the road to Thebes the Sphinx would stop all travelers and 
pose riddles to them; those who were unable to solve her riddles she would devour. 
When Oedipus was asked by the Sphinx, ‘which animal has four feet in the morning, 
two at midday and three in the evening?’ He answered correctly with, ‘Man, who 
in infancy crawls on all fours, who walks upright on two feet in maturity, and in old 
age supports himself with a stick.’ Vanquished, the Sphinx threw herself into the sea. 
Greek sphinxes became a familiar motif for the decoration of ancient tombs. She is 
missing her wings, and both forepaws, yet this sculpture has a strong and somewhat 
mystical presence. Mounted on a black base. Rare. H. 7 1/4” (18 cm) 2500 

719. ETRUSCAN IMPASTO BRAZIER, ca. 6th Century BC. Broad angled rim with a 

repeating scene of animals consisting of birds, horses, ibex and lions. This continuous 
frieze was produced by running a cylinder seal over the soft red clay before firing. 
Manufacturing of these pieces probably centered at Cerveteri. This type of brazier 
served as a container for coal fires. Rejoined from large fragments with minimal loss.

ROMAN SET OF THREE I.MPORTANT CROSSBOW FIBULAE. This 
grouping of three fibulae found together many decades ago w'ithin the Byzantine or 
Eastern Roman Christian Empire, the center of Christianity during this time period. 
Two of these wonderful brooches are constructed of gilt silver W'hile the third fibula 
is gold and engraved with a cross. During the reign of Diocletian or Galerius. no 
Roman would have displayed Christian symbolism as they persecuted Christians 
vigorously. Thus, it could only be during the reign of Constantine the Great, and then 
only after 324 A.D. which marks the death of Licinius. Emperor of the East. After 
this date. Constantine was sole emperor and Christianity could be practiced openly. 
The gold fibula must be one of the first representations of the cross worn by a Roman 
as well as one of the earliest representations of the cross, period. The fibulae, quite 
massive in relation to their typical size, are of hollow construction because of the 
value of the material they are made of and to give size with the logical weight. The 
gilt silver pieces have very large onion shaped knobs, a horseshoe bow and wide leg 
with notehes and decorative volutes along the edge. The gold fibula is of very similar 
design with large onion shaped knobs and horseshoe shaped bow, although it is a bit 
smaller overall. The engraved cross takes up almost the entire surface of the leg. The 

pins of these fibulae are missing, otherwise, they are in excellent condition 12500

749 WESTERN HEMISPHERE AMERICAE SIY E NO\ I ORBLS, NOYA 
DESCRIPTIO BY: YIUNSTER / PETRI. 1588 (published) Cosmography. This 
woodcut map of the Americas is based on Abraham Ortelius' classic map of 1570. 
Its distinguishing features include the huge bulge in the southwest coastline of South 
America, the extensive western coastline of North America, and the great southern 
continent, here called Meridies Terra de Fuego. Because of the restrictions inherent 
in wood block engraving, Petri's map is somewhat more generalized. A village of 
Quivira and the Sierra Nevada are located in present-day California. Inland is the 
kingdom of Quivira with those of Anian and Tolm to the north and east. Above the 
map are two elongated ovals of gothic German text and abox e that, in the upper 
margin a Gentian title, "Die newen Inseln so hinder Hispania Gegen Orient bey dem 
Landt Indie Gelegen.” is above the map and on verso. Condition B+. 14.5 x 12.5 
inches (36.5 x 31.5 cm) 1850 

750. COLONIAL AMERIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE DIY ISEE EN SES 

PRINCIPALES PARTIES. BY: N. SANSON / JAILLOT, This is a wonderful 
example of Jaillot's map of North America during colonial times based on Sanson's 
original map (1656). This map displays a number of geographical features and lack 
thereof that make this map an exceptional example of North American history. The 
most obvious geographical feature is the famous depiction of California as an island. 
Dotted along its coast are names of places still current in California today such as 
Mendocino. Monterey. Francisco, S. Barbara, and S. Diego among others. The space 
above California is blank since north-westeni Canada and Alaska had yet to be 
discovered by Europeans. In the north central part of the map lies Buttons Bay which 
is actually a very small bay within Hudson Bay. In this map however, it is depicted as a 
large open ended channel of water leading into an empty space on the map. This hinted 
at a possible shortcut lo the Pacific known as the Northwest Passage. Many sailors and 
explorers lost their lives in search of such a route. One last geographic feature worth 
noting is the depiction of the Great Lakes. All of the lakes are miss-shaped. Superior 
and Michigan are left open ended. Michigan is shown to lay horizontally. Huron is 
shown to be much larger than it really is, Ontario is fed by a separate river, Erie 
is completely landlocked, and in there is a sixth lake named Lac Nissipirinien that 
does not exist. A decorative cartouche adorns the map with dedication to Lc Dauphin 
and his coal of arms on top. Featured below are eight distance scales within another 
cartouche. 22 x 34 inches (55.5 x 86 cm) 3750 

751. COLONIAL REGNI ME.XICANI SEU NOYA HISPANAE... BY: JOHANN 
B.YPTIST HOM.YNN. 1725. This beautifully engraved map by Johann Baptist 
Homann is one of the most influential and detailed early 18th centuiy' maps of the 
North America, the Mississippi Y'alley. Caribbean, and Mexico. It w’as made to 
illustrate the gold routes of the Spanish during their plunder of the Inca and Aztec 
Empires. The large vignette in the Atlantic portion of the map depicts a large gold 
mine operation with the natives filling a chest for the Europeans with the riches of 
their land. Inn the bottom left of the map is a fierce battle scene between many ships. 
The political divisions of North America are well defined for the period as they reflect 
the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713 and French expansion into Louisiana the following 10 
years. The border of Carolina is shown extending almost to St. Augustine (the scene of 
many battles) and all the British colonies are shown confined east of the Appalachians. 
This map is in A condition with original coloring.22 x 18.5 inches (56 x 47 cm).2750
