Description
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)
