579950.jpg
Abydos (BC 411-387) Drachm152 viewsca 380-330 BC. AR Drachm (3.21g). Mentor, magistrate. Laureate head of Apollo right / Eagle standing right, lyre and ABY before, ΜΕΝΤΩΡ above. VF.
620323.jpg
Alexandreia (BC 300-200) Stater1270 viewsca 3rd cent BC. AR Stater (10.62g). Laureate head of Apollo right / ΑΛΕΞΑΝ-ΔΡΕΩΝ, horse grazing right; ΣΙ below. Good VF, traces of undertype visible on reverse. Unpublished and unique.

The earliest coins of Alexandria are bronze issues struck about 300 BC imitating Hamaxitus (Apollo Smitheus) and Hamandria (Apollo/horse feeding). The earliest silver attributable to Alexandria are tetradrachms ca 280-275 in the name of Alexander, which on grounds of style belong to the years after the death of Lysimachus (Price 1588-1590). During the Second Syrian War (260-253) Antiochus II produced an issue of tetradrachms (SNG Spaer 374-376). Another two issues in the name of Alexander followed ca 230 (Price 1591), and again in 189-180 (Price 1592-1598). At some point during the 3rd century BC, an extensive bronze issue was produced (BMC 7-21), to which this previously unknown silver stater belongs, based on the local Persian silver weight standard, obviously intended for local use.

Dardanos (BC 480-450) Trihemiobol85 views5th century BC. AR Trihemiobol (9mm, 1.03g, 2h). Cock standing right; star above / Incuse horse head left. Near VF, some deposits. Apparently unpublished and possibly unique.

Although the attribution of this issue is not certain, Dardanos is the only mint to feature these types on its coinage (cf. SNG Cop. 282 and 298).
060995.jpg
Ilion (BC 300-200) Diobol585 viewsca 3rd century BC. AR Diobol (1.47g, 1h). Head of Athena right, wearing a crested helmet / Archaic cult statue of Athena Ilias left, holding spear and distaff, rose to left.

Apparently unpublished. The only other example of the type I could find is from a Gorny & Mosch auction. That example weight 2.87g and is attributed as a hemidrachm. One could argue that it is a tetrobol based on the standards used at Ilion at the time. This would then be a diobol.
