Kebren (BC 530-480) EL Hekte 67 viewsLate 6th-early 5th century BC. EL Hekte (2.47g, 10mm). Head of ram right / Incuse punch. VF. Carr coll.

Second known hekte of this type. The first example was sold by CNG and described as unique and unpublished: “Although there are a few electrum Phokaic standard hektai known with a ram’s head (particularly from Mytilene and Phokaia, and an uncertain mint [Weidauer 50]), all are distinctly different in style from this coin. At the same time, the style of the ram’s head here is a perfect match to the type found on the early silver issues at Kebren (cf. SNG Ashmolean 1076–7). See SNG Kayhan 1565 and CNG 90 (5/2012), lot 577 for myshemihektes of the same style and standard, but with head left.” CNG have since sold a hemihekte of the same style and standard [see CNG 105 (5/2017) lot 225]. The reverse of this example is very different to the CNG examples.
