M. Josset As M. Mazerolle does not mention Josse in his recent work
on French Medallists, it is possible that Guiffrey has wrongly inter-
preted the initials L. J. which he has noticed on the medal in
question.

JOUVENEL, ADOLPHE CHRISTIAN (5^.). Sculptor and Medallist,
born at Lille on the io th May, 1798, died at Brussels on the

In 1846, Jouvenel undertook the publication of a Series ot
Portrait-medals of the celebrities of his country. This collection
was to comprise a first set of 25 bronxe medals of 45 mill, in diam-
eter, to be issued one each month at the price of 5 Francs. The
prospectus of this Medallic series describes it thus : " Histoire
populaire et metallique des grands hommes de la Belgique, ou col-
lection de medailles representant leurs portraits, executees d'apres
les monuments les plus authentiques et enrichies d'inscriptions
historiques sur leur vie, leur caractere, leurs actions ou leurs

Both Jouvenel and Constant Jehotte had intended to publish a
Medallic Gallery of Belgian Celebrities &c., but either from want
of support or other reasons, they did not complete their task. Jou-
venel executed a series of twelve medals towards his, and Jehotte
even fewer, but I have not been able to ascertain the exact number.

JUDIN, SAMUEL or SAMOILA (Russ.}. Medallist of the second halt
of the eighteenth century. Nagler erroneously places the date of his
activity between 1704 and 1740, and gives his signature as S. IOU.
or S. IU. Iversen calls him SAMUEL JUDITSCH, and says that he was
born in 1730 at St. Petersburg, and was still living in 1800,
when he was in receipt of a pension. He entered the School
of Engraving at the St. Petersburg Mint in 1741, and in 1762 we
find both Judin and Iwanoffas official Medallists. The first signed
work of Judin appears to be a Rouble of Peter III. (illustrated} and
he is the author of the following medals : Commemoration of the
Foundation of St. Andrew ; Annihilation of the Strelitz dynasty;
Peace of Carlowitz ; Institution of Colleges ; also of some
copies, alter other Medallists : Birth of Peter the Great; - Acces-
sion of Peter I. ; Creation of the Russian Fleet; Capture of

Azow (2 var.) ; Capture of Schlusselburg ; Capture ot
Narva; - Battle of Poltava (2 var.); Capture of Pernau ;

meeting at Bornholm ; Peter the Great's Visit to the Paris Mint ;
Portrait-medal of Empress Anne; Portrait-medal of Empress
Elizabeth, 1761 ; Conclusion of Peace between Russia and
Sweden 1790, etc.




Rouble of Peter III., 1762.

Durand observes that this artist's medal on the Battle of Poltava
has placed him in the front rank of medallists.

JUNIOTHALATIONI, C. (Roman). Probably a Seal and Gem -engraver,
who also cut coin-dies, during the first century B.C. The Rev. Hands
in an article published in Spink's Numismatic Circular, col. 2899 on
"The Denarii ot the Roman Republic considered as specimens of
art" remarks : "From the similarity of work on the seals and the
coins we are led to expect that both kinds of work were undertaken
by the same craftsmen or artists and this is confirmed by certain
inscriptions quoted in Facciolati Lex, sub voce " sigillaricius", and
" flatuarius"; for instance, we have the name of such an artist in
the inscrip. ap. Grueb. 638.6 C. Junio Jhalationi, C. Maecenatis
liberto flatuario sigillariario, and again, other such names quoted
from Don. Cl. 8, n. 15 T. Flavio 7. F. Largonio fabro, ftaluario
sigillariario and again, ibid. 61 C. Scllius Onesimus flatuarius de via
sacra. The name or word "flatuarius" literally means one w r ho
casts metals, but it was evidently continued by an improper use of
the word long after casting had been given up in the mints ".

K... (Greek). Engraver's signature (possibly that of the artist KAA,
q. v.), already noticed by Raoul Rochette on a Thurian Didrachm
in his collection.

^R. Didrachm (Cm:. B.C. 390-350). Obv. Head of Pallas tor.,
wearing Athenian helmet adorned with the monster Scylla hurling
a stone ; on the flap, the letter K.

^ - OOYPI... Bull butting to r. ; on rump, the letter K; ex. :
fish to r.

Raoul Rochette, op. cit., PL in, 23. Biit. Mus. Cat., Italy,
p. 292, n 53.

Raoul Rochette mentions that he possessed a rare coin of Thur-
ium, perhaps unique, " on which the initial letter K could be
seen engraved at once on Minerva's helmet and on the rump of
the bull ", and he suggests that the K might perhaps stand for
the Velian artist, Kleodoros's signature, which supposition however
rests on no solid basis.




Various other Thurian coins bear the signature K on the neck-
piece of helmet of Pallas.
