The June 12, 2016 meeting was a field trip to the Getty Villa to visit the exhibit Roman Mosaics Across the Empire. I was out of town that week but Roger Burry reports that there were 12 attendees on the field trip. Members toured the exhibit of outstanding mosaics and then held a brief meeting focusing on a membership and ANA report by Merrill Gibson.

- ANCIENT COIN CLUB OF LOS ANGELES members Merrill Gibson and Paul Ranc gave a presentation at the recent symposium on classical coins, of course. In April, Roger Burry put together an amazing presentation on Vercingetorix focusing on his battles with Julius Caesar. David Michaels of Legion VI and Heritage Auctions participated. Randy Butler shared his coins of this period. The theme in May featured Mythical Moms and Daughters in honor of Mother’s Day. This club may like classical coins but it is up-to-date and modern with over 1,000 hits on Facebook.
