Ionia Uncertain (BC 650-600) Figural - EL Stater1721 viewsca 650-600 BC. EL Stater (14.22g). Milesian standard. Figural type. Sphinx seated left on ground line; cross with terminal pellets to left / Irregular incuse. Unpublished. Good VF. Unique. This previously unknown type almost certainly has an Ionian origin, but the specific mint remains unknown. The sphinx appears as a civic emblem on archaic coins of both Chios and Samothrace, but Samothrace did not issue electrum, and the electrum staters of Chios, although struck on the same weight standard as the present coin, are of a distinctly different style (cf. Baldwin, Chios, pl. I, 1-12). The cross with terminal pellets -- perhaps a solar symbol is exceptional by its appearance here as a subsidiary symbol. Such subsidiary symbols are rare on early electrum (but cf. Triton VIII, lots 399-405, for the use of a pentagram or a triad of pellets as symbols on the early electrum of Ephesos). The cross with terminal pellets does appear on other uncertain early electrum (cf. Traite I 7, pl. I, 6) and is employed regularly as a reverse type on the electrum of Miletos (with a central pellet in addition to the terminal pellets; cf. SNG Kayhan 440-449).

The imperial portrait coinage from Miletus with title CEBACTOC cannot be precisely assigned to ruler. Some portraits resemble Nero, others Titus, Domitian and Trajan. The portrait on this coin looks much like Tiberius, but the lunate form of “Σ” (i.e., “C”) found on this coin was not in use at Miletus until the reign of Nero.

B_102_Carr.jpg
Phokaia (BC 387-326) EL Hekte - B10251 viewsca 387-326 BC. EL Hekte (2.56g, 10mm). Laureate female head (Sappho), hair in sakkos; below, small seal / Quadripartite incuse square. Lightly toned and unusually well centered, gVF. Carr coll.

Bodenstedt notes 36 examples of this emission. Most examples omit the small seal due to the strike not being well centered. The obverse portrait is thought to be that of the female Greek poet Sappho, a native of Lesbos. A similar female portrait is to be found on a rare and unpublished Stater of Lampsakos [see CNG Auc. 100 lot 74].
