the same engraver, who at a slightly later date attaches his signature
to some of the noblest of the Tarentine types, indifferently with

character of the moneyer's industry explains how it is that the same
signatures appear on the coins of different cities, it being natural
that an 'Apyupsxizs; who had earned a reputation as a good
engraver, should at times obtain employment even from remote
quarters. But where a system of this kind prevailed and the coinage
of the State, instead of issuing as at Athens from a central mint,
was entrusted to private enterprise, it became the more necessary
that the individual pieces should receive the guarantee of the
moneyer or firm of moneyers, ^ho had made themselves responsible
for their sterling weight and standard, as well as their artistic
excellence. A coiner, who was also his own die-sinker, signed in
both qualities. It was open to him in some cases, if he was a great
artist, to lay stress on that side of his character and sign upon a
coin as he might upon a gem. But local custom, or the accident of
the type he had to deal with, was not always favourable to the
adoption of such a practice. In cities where private moneyers
supplied the public needs, it may well have been required by law
that the signature that authenticated the coin and fixed the respon-
sibility [of the individual should be made clearly manifest. So at
Velia we find both Philistion and Kleudoros, although on one side
of the coin they follow the purely artistic tradition, signing conspi-
cuously enough en the other side with the first letters of their
names, and in a style which recalls the contemporary Tarentine
practice. At Tarentum itself, whether owing to special regulations
.on the part of the State or to natural causes inherent in the type,
this seems to have been the only form of signature current, if we
except some microscopic signatures of KAA and <j>|.

" It is a form which emphasizes the official responsibility ot the
moneyer in all his capacities. But it covers his artistic qualifications;
it does not exclude the possibility of his having achieved fame in
other fields as an engraver, and where we find, as in the case of
KAA... of API... or of <J)|... a signature associated with excellent
work, we have as much right to place him in the rank of artistic
engravers as if he had hidden his name in some part of the
design.

" No one doubts that the small and concealed signatures of an
earlier period, such as those represented by the great Sicilian works
of the close of the fifth and beginning ot the fourth century, have
a purely artistic value. They belong to a time when, whether owing
to the monetary system then in vogue or to other causes, it was
not thought necessary for moneyers as such to attach their sign
manual. When we find a signature of this kind we have a right to
exclaim, "It is an engraver's signature, and therefore an artist's ".
But, as we see from the Tarentine series, a practice grew up during
the fourth century of engravers initialling every single piece. At



times, as in the case of the Velian coins referred to, they continue
or revive the older practice of interweaving their name full-length,
or in an abbreviated form, with some part of the design. But even
in such a case as this they usually repeat their signature in its more
official form on the other side of the same coin.

" At times, as atThurioi, \ve are able to trace a regular transition
from signatures of the old artistic character to the regulation stamp.
But to seize on this difference of type as a proof that the later
signatures are not those of the engravers of the dies is to mistake the
point at issue. The truth is, that during the later period with which
we are specially concerned, it is not the lack of engravers' signatures
that should cause perplexity, but their abundance. There are some
who, from the noble style of their designs, the gem-like finish of
their work, and the fact that they were employed by different cities,
evidently enjoyed an artistic reputation in their own day although
they may not have signed in the older artistic fashion. There are
others, such as the die-sinker who signs EY at Tarentum, who, by
the evidence of their own work, have no claim to rank as artists.
But to take the last-named example as a crucial test, the very gross-
ness of the features that characterize the coins signed EY proclaims
identity of handiwork. The magistrates' names that occur beneath
the horses on this group of coins continually vary, but the signature
in the field and the style of engraving go hand in hand ; they come
in and they depart together. It is an engraver's signature, but not
an artist's ".

THURIUM

M. Vlasto has suggested that this same Engraver KAA or K may
have executed some coin-dies for Thurium.

Taras on coins of Tarentum by KAA or K, and on ]$L. in ex. a dol-

We read in Bolzenthal, p. 237 : " The Court of Stockholm
employed an artist, Arvid Karlsten, who in his time received
excessive distinction. Born at Karlskoga in Vermland, 1647, he had
in his early youth made himself so well acquainted with the Art
that he was enabled to pursue his studies in foreign countries; in
Paris^ under Varin, and in London under John Roettier. After he
had finished them, he obtained celebrity in Berlin and Dresden,
but he however left Germany for love of his native country. He
was much esteemed and was soon after raised to the nobility
(1692); this he truly deserved as he was so much above his contem-
poraries. He highly respected his teacher Varin, although his style
approaches in a singular manner to that of John Roettier. As to
the excellence of his works, it appears to us that he was not equal
to his countryman Raymund Faltz ; but like him he excelled in
engraving portraits, wherein both were wonderfully successful.

In 1687, the artist was paid 759 livres by the Paris Medal Mint
for dies supplied from Stockholm (3 obvs. and 3 fyLs. of medals).

Ammon states that Karlsteen was first apprenticed at the Stockolm
mint, and that some of his first productions were coin-dies for the
mint of Alvesta. According to the same authority, he learned
engraving in steel from a Knight at the Danish Court, H. Von
Falkenstein.
