Notes:     Sale: CNG 76, Lot: 3101 From the John A. Seeger Collection.The Romans revived the coinage of King Philip Philadelphos in the 50s BC under the proconsul Aulus Gabinius. Issues were minted with the monograms of Gabinius, Crassus, and Cassius, and then circa 49/48 BC the proconsul's monogram was replaced by one standing for either Antioch or 'Autonomous'. Aulus Gabinius gained fame as one of Pompey the Great's generals, and in his position as governor of Syria he played an important role in the internecine battles of the Jewish priest-kings, the Hasmoneans.
