Prof. William Busam, who lives at
Pittsburg. Fla., exhibited yesterday some
coins that are very interesting. They
were Babylonian, and all of them date

a profile of King Philip of Macedonia,

a keystone, called a denarri, was minted
in the time of Caesar Augustus of the
Roman empire. On one side are several
hieroglyphics, while the reverse is ent irely
smooth. The intrinsic value of this coin
is 10 cents, but it is now worth several
