(Plates VII-XVIII)

Joan M. Fagerlie

With the recent bequest of Adra M. Newell that contained eight

medallions and with other accessions made in the past few years, the

Society's collection of Roman and Byzantine medallions now totals

forty-threepieces. Several of these are apparently unique: No. 7 of

Lucilla, Nos. 22 and 25 from the Arras hoard and No. 39 of Valen-

tinian I. Others are variants of published types: No. 1 of Antoninus

Pius, No. 23 of Diocletian, No. 29 of Constantine I and No. 35 of

Constantius Gallus. Of special interest also is the gold medallion of

Magnentius, No. 37. Many of the medallions have been published

previously in various places but it seemed worthwhileto bring them

all together now in one place. Since every piece is illustrated,descrip-

tions have been kept to a minimum. Referencesare to Gnecchi, Co-

hen and Roman Imperial Coinage and to publications wherethese par-

ticular pieces have appeared. The abbreviations used

are as follows:
