Superb Celtic Silver Kroisbach Reiterstumpf Coin

An exceptional example of abstract Celtic artwork on a coin, this heavy silver tetradrachm was minted by the Danubian Celts of Pannonia (Burgenland) in the 2nd Century BC.  The obverse has a remarkable portrait of a Celtic warrior, in the very finest Danubian style. The male head is shown staring to the heavens, with a long, sweeping brow, crooked nose and exaggerated cheeks, reminiscent of helmet cheek pieces. He wears an ornate diadem, his ear, ponytail and eyes are rendered schematically. The reverse has a Celtic warrior on horseback, galloping left. The rider is composed of a torso and head, his long hair tied into a topknot, with three locks fluttering in the wind behind. The horse is shown powerfully built, with a short mane and large hooves.

We know relatively little of their history but, through objects like this, we can admire their artistic creativity. On each side of the coin we see Celtic warriors, brilliantly transformed into fine, playful and yet striking works of abstract art.  One of the very finest and most pleasing examples of this charming coin type.

Mình quên rồi cái nắm tay
Quên luôn ánh mắt ngất ngây nhân tình
Mình quên luôn cả chính mình
Sau ly rượu đắng, trái tim lạc đường

Đã từng chạm tới yêu thương
Đã từng hò hẹn, con đường bước chung
Giờ thì quên mất hình dung
Chả còn mong lại tương phùng thế gian

Người ta đi mãi ngút ngàn
Mình không dõi mắt bỏ màng đường xa
Đường xa chắc lắm cỏ hoa
Cho nên phía ấy phong ba kệ người

Từ khi làm mới nụ cười
Cũng như là rượu, cay môi đắng lòng
Nụ cười dấu lại vào trong
Đổi thay một chút vừa lòng thế nhân…

" What's the ALF like individually in a relationship? "

— Anonymous — Jay is a very caring lover who will probably make very specific anniversaries for things like the day you met, your first kiss with him, etc. Jay always appreciates his partner no matter what and is always trying to make sure they’re satisfied in the relationship. Often enough in a tough situation, he will make sure his lover is okay rather than himself. — — K can be forgetful, but he loves his partner no matter what. He is constantly giving them gifts not determining the day because he often forgets anniversaries when he’s really engorged into his work, but he always makes up for it. He can be very affectionate as well in public, hugging or kissing on his lover, though not inappropriately. He just does it with love. — — Red is rather apathetic when it comes to her partner, mostly because she’s constantly afraid of showing her emotions. She does little things, however, to remind them she loves them. When her lover is asleep, she’ll fluff up their pillows and tuck them in nicely, kissing their forehead. If they’re on a tough mission or Red sees someone eating food, she’ll squeeze her partner’s hand for comfort. — — Silver is really affectionate when it comes to his relationships. He is not afraid to show his emotions, but he’s also not afraid to tell someone he’s not satisfied. He likes being treated like royalty, but he also likes treating his partners as such, too, because he knows how good it feels and wants them to feel it, too. He always likes to say ‘I love you’ first. — — Blond is a protective type of lover, always checking in on his partner and not hugging them or holding their hand too tight because he’s afraid he’ll hurt them. His favorite thing is getting gifts for his partners, almost always being vegan desserts or even stuffed animals that he knows don’t come from animal byproducts. He loves his partner through and through.

Tôi hay ngồi dưới hiên
Thả khói thuốc về trời
Suy nghĩ những biên niên
Của trăm người trần thế

Em có ngồi như thế
Ở thành phố bình yên
Và nở nụ cười hiền
Mong bình yên nhân thế

Hay người của thế gian
Có ngồi ngắm hoang tàn
Qua cửa nhà vĩ đại
Để nguyện cầu bình an

Kẻ hay ngồi dưới hiên
Vui chơi với ưu phiền
Để quên đi hiện tại
Để mong cầu an nhiên

Và bóng ta dưới hiên
Ngoan ngoan dáng thật hiền
Em đến từ phía cửa
Một khoãng trời an yên.
