Before 561 BC. AR Hekte (1.03g). Head of roaring lion right / Irregular incuse punch. Unpublished in major references. Probably once coated with electrum foil, similar to the coin mentioned in Franke's Antike Metallurgie und Muenzpragung, page 15. This coin also made from silver/ billon (rather than bronze, as typical for later fourre's).
