LIGORIO. PIRRO (Ital.}. A Neapolitan Forger of the seventeenth
century, whose productions are commonly known as " Ligoriana ",

copper coins, which he cleverly patinated, also coins and medals of
Popes and Cardinals, amongst which the medal of Cardinal Jacomo
Savello (later Pope Honorius IV., 1285-1287), &c.

Prof. Dressel of Berlin suggests that many of the so-called
Paduans are probably by Ligorio, and quotes the following docu-
ments concerning this renowned Forger from Martinelli's " Roma
ex ethnica sacra" (Rome, 1653, p. 423).

Pirro Ligorio, mi disse Jacomo Card. Sauello, il quale I'haueua conos-
ciuto, cVera un antiquario, che faceua projessione, di cercare li vestigi
antichi delle fabriche di Roma, e di disegnarli : si dilettaua delle meda-


glie antiche, & m fece itnprontare molte di nuouo, dandoli una ruggine
verde, b altro fuco, acrid paressero antiche, delle quali m fece, b contra-
fece gran quantita, che hanno ingannato molti. Tali medaglie stamfi
anche de Papi e Cardinali, tanto de tempi antichi, come de tempi bassi,

LINDENSCHMIDT, JOHANN (Germ.). Medallist and Coin-engraver,
born in 1770 at Camberg in Westerwald, died at Wiesbaden in 1819.
" He was brought up at first to be a Ginsmith ", says D r F. P.
Weber, " his father Wilhelm's trade, but soon found means to
educate himself in drawing, engraving, &c. and worked as a Medal-
list and Mint-engraver, first in Mayence, 1790-1808, then at Wies-
baden, 1808-1819. Wilhelm Lindenschmidt, the historical painter,
and D r Ludwig Lindenschmidt, the antiquary, were his sons ". He

was highly esteemed at Mayence, although from circumstances he
was almost limited to mere mechanical works. " He however'',
observes Bolzenthal, " executed some medals which show his ability,
especially one with his own likeness and that of his wife."

Lindenschmidt was " Hof-und Miinzgraveur " ; Mint-master at
Usingen (Nassau), 1808-1819; and supplied dies to the mints of
Ehrenbreitstein, Darmstadt, Mayence, Arolsen, and Wiesbaden; he
worked also for Frederick Charles Joseph, Baron von Erthal,
Bishop of Mayence; the Grand Duke of Hesse, Ludwig I. ; George,
Prince of Waldeck-Pyrmont; and the Dukes of Nassau, Frederick
Augustus, and Wilhelm.

"Lindenschmidt worked more as a Seal-engraver than a Medallist",
remarks D r Weber. "His name should be familar to all antiquaries
on account of one of his sons, the late D r Ludwig Lindenschmidt,
Hon. F. S. A., to whose untiring energy the splendid collection
illustrative of Teutonic antiquities at Mayence owes so much ".

" It was D r Linderman who projected the trade dollar, solely for
commerce, and not intended to enter into circulation in the United
States. It was a successful means of finding a market for the great
surplus of silver, which he sought to send to Oriental countries
rather than flood his own and depreciate its fickle value ". (Evans,
