The coins and relics from the early Clyde Pharr collection have been re-organized and condensed with all ‘SOLD’ items removed. This first of 7 pages, Group ‘A’, contains an assortment (ROW 1000, 1008, 1011, 1023, 1028, 1029, 1043, 1061, 1065, 1067B, 1070 and 1088A) of ancient Greek, Roman, Ptolemaic Egyptian and Islamic coins along with a single small group of historic period European coins free to the first buyer of any of the ancient coins on this page. Most of the coins were attributed by Pharr, some are not. All seven of the Groups (A – G) of multiple and individually priced items from the Pharr collection can be viewed together by placing the single word ROW in the search link at the top of any page in our catalog. Each item or lot comes with a copy of Pharr’s biography as published in the Class Notes section of the Vanderbilt Alumnus in 1973, along with our own larger print write-up of that biographical sketch including information on the history of the collection and how to locate some of his publications through the internet. Pharr graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Yale with a PhD in the early 20th century. He retired as Professor Emeritus of Latin and Greek from Vanderbilt in 1950 where he taught for 26 years, after also teaching at Ohio Wesleyan and Southern Presbyterian. A student of archaeology, a Fellow of the American Institute of Archaeology and then an American Field Service Fellow, he also studied at the Universities of Paris and Berlin, and did archaeological research in Athens, Greece where many of his collection pieces were found and otherwise acquired. Select or ask any question by referring either to the Trocadero ITEM # or the STOCK # at the top of this page, and ALSO to the item’s INVENTORY NUMBER as shown in the brackets on its photo. NOTE: if you would like to view our many other varied groups of multiple, individually priced items, simply spell out the word TWELVE in the search box. And if you want to further refine the search, add one or two additional modifiers to the TWELVE at the same time such as ‘Indian, Precolumbian, Stone, Pot, Gold, etc.’ Any item that has been sold will be so noted on its photograph.
