Kindya (BC 510-480) Didrachm0 viewsca 510-480 BC. AR Didrachm (5.66g, 17mm). Ketos winding right / Geometric Pattern. Unpublished and possibly unique. Jan 14, 2017

(BC 400-350) Uncertain Satrap - Tetartemorion107 viewsEarly-mid 4th cenutry BC. AR Tetartemorion(?) (6mm, 0.21g). Mylasa mint(?). Head of the Persian Great King left / Stellate pattern of Milesian style. Unpublished in the standard references. VF, porous. Extremely rare.

It is unlikely that this coin was part of a Persian-related issue at Miletos. In the early 4th century, however, the Milesian stellate pattern reverse was revived in the fractional coinage of the Hekatomnid satraps of Caria that were struck at Mylasa. These coins used the Milesian weight standard, which is likely the reason for their revival of that particular stellate type. There are a variety of issues from Caria during the Persian period that used Persian iconography, so it is likely that this coin belongs among these issues, and perhaps was struck under the Hekatomnids at Mylasa.

This coin celebrates the greatest citizen of Halikarnassos, Herodotos, who lived there in the mid-late 5th century BC. He was a great historian and for that time a 'journalist' who would travel around the Mediterranean to 'investigate' and interview people who actually had witnessed the events he wrote about.
