Star Trek - Identify Roman Augustus coin which appeared on television program
I run a "Coins in Movies" and "Coins on Television" website and sometimes receive emails with questions.
A man wrote to me recently with an interesting question:
I am searching for a movie or a TV series episode that I saw many years ago (more than 20 if I can calculate correctly) and shows a guy (captain of a space-ship?) sitting behind a desk and playing in his hands with a cistophoric tetradrachm of Augustus.
I've attached a picture of a similar coin in my email.
I do remember an original Captain Kirk Star Trek episode set in a Roman Empire.
Can anyone help him find his program?
