Family Treasures

Minnie Melvin, Eunice Walker & Peter Jacobs
This was a quilt top made my by grandmother (Eunice Wall). My mother said my grandmother and great-grandmother used to make clothes for people. They would have her and her sisters take the leftover fabrics and cut it up in squares and put it in a box to make quilts later. When my mother and her sisters left home each was given a quilt top to take with them to be complete one day. My...

Puzzle Quilt

Minnie Melvin & Peter Jacobs
I love doing jigsaw puzzles so when I ran across this puzzle quilt I had to do it. The quilt is formed by starting with the H quilt block which is rotated -- the little squares a long the design's midpoint becomes the tabs that lock each piece into place. This quilt is good for using up scraps.

Phenomenal Woman

Minnie Melvin & Peter Jacobs
When my sister and I were younger my mother (Emmie D. Melvin) had given us T-shirts with the Maya Angelou poem Phenomenal Woman on it. I found mine that had been put away. I decided I would make a quilt. I traced the picture on the front of the tee-shirt onto paper, had it blown up, cut the picture into pieces on fabrics, added fusible interfacing on the back, ironed it onto background fabric, and...

Denarius - Sydenham 410/414 - Crawford 278/1

Crawford says the letter form L on this coin (with bent leg) is a marked archaism. He regards the moneyer as the son of C. Plautius, Praetor of 146. According to Sydenham, there are differences between the form of the helmet and the earring on the Obverse on coins 410 and 414, which both align to Crawford 278/1. This specimen shows Sydenham's helmet style F1 (Sydenham plate 1) and earring style n (Sydenham plate 2),...

Quadrans - Sydenham 497b - Crawford 262/4

According to Crawford, the moneyer is presumably either Lucius Caecilius Metellus Diadematus (Cos. 117) or Lucius Caecilius Metellus Delmaticus (Cos. 119). The elephant's head recalls the victory of Lucius Caecilius Metellus (Cos. 251) over Hasdrubal at Panormus in 250 B.C.E. and the capture of Hasdrubal's elephants.

Denarius - Sydenham 498 - Crawford 271/1

According to Crawford, the laurel-wreath on the obverse, of unusually elaborate form, presumably complements the figure of Victory of the reverse (pg.293). Sydenham notes a later date (119 - 91 B.C.E.) than Crawford (125 B.C.E.). Badian's note on this object places Roma in quotes and marks the whip identification with a question mark.

Quadrans - Sydenham 501a - Crawford 245/3

Crawford says the moneyer is Marcus Marcius Mn.f. Sydenham notes a date range of 119 -110 B.C.E. (p 59) that is later than the date of 134 B.C.E. that Crawford identifies.
