Jealousy

Peter Jacobs & Juandamarie Gikandi
This is my first log cabin quilt. I selected a hand-stamped and dyed batik fabric made in Ghana in 2014 as the focus fabric for this quilt. I chose this fabric for its beautiful red color and the design of the Ghanaian Adinkra Symbol “FOFO”. Fofo, I learned, is a plant with flowers whose petals drop and turn into black spike-like seeds: it is the symbol of jealousy and envy. Named “Jealousy , this quilt...

Sydenham tentatively identifies the obverse head as Roma; Crawford tentatively identifies obverse head as Venus, perhaps Venus Victrix; the reverse image is generally supposed to portray an equestrian statue of Lepidus, commemorating his bravery during the Second Punic War (see Valerius Maximus iii.1.1). Some specimens (not this one) also include the legend AN[[norum] XV PR[etextatus] H[ostem] O[ccidit] C[ivem] S[ervavit] (see Stevenson A Dictionary of Roman Coins p. 14).

Denarius - Sydenham 670 - Crawford 340/1

Badian identifies obverse symbol as animal leg

As - Sydenham 678- Crawford 338/1

Reverse iconography represents the rape of the Sabine women.

Denarius - Sydenham 698b - Crawford 344/1c

Reverse iconography represents the rape of the Sabine women. A·PV legend on obverse=A[rgentvm] PV[blicvm], indicating that the coin was minted from metal owned by the Roman state. Crawford remarks that this express declaration is curious, as all Roman coinage was presumably struck from such. For discussion of this and other coin issues which expressly indicate that they were coined from publicly-owned metals, see Crawford p.605.

Guns

Minnie Melvin & Peter Jacobs
A challenge project. We were to design a wall hanging that either depicts a form of oppression or reflects freedom from oppressive conditions. I simply used background fabric that had stop signs on it. I added pictures of guns and satin stitched around the art. I quilted the front and backing together and added a thin border in red. The use of guns today is out of control anyone can get a gun.

Denarius - Sydenham 689 - Crawford 342/1

unsure of control mark symbols

Semis - Sydenham 264a - Crawford 113/3

Quadrans - Sydenham 304c - Crawford 97/13c=19

Dr. Badian notes a border of dots on the obverse, and line border on the reverse. Badian's Sydenham identification (304c) is unlikely.
