The Rosen catalog notes that the entry for the Vourla hoard in IGCH designates Samos as the mint of these coins, but J.P. Barron disagrees. Von Aulock placed the coin at an uncertain mint in Ionia, while Rosen was more general, at an uncertain mint in Asia Minor.

On most examples of this issue, the wing of Pegasos is off the flan, and therefore the type is usually referred to as a horse’s head.

There are a variety of published horse's head electrum in various denominations from this general period (eg. Weidauer 141-142), but none have the horse's head facing right. In addition, the style of both the horse and the incuse punch are significantly different from the present coin.

The cataloger of the Elektron collection associated its coins of this type to Rosen 304, but the style of the lion and the incuse punch are not consistent with these.

Ionia Uncertain (BC 550-500) Lion - EL 1/24 Stater190 viewsca 600-550 BC. EL 1/24 Stater (0.65g, 7mm). Milesian standard. Figural type. Head of lion right / Incuse square punch. Good VF. Very rare.

Male bust left on a striated field / Two rough incuse square punches. Good VF. The third known example. This coin was struck from the same obv die as the hemistater, and the same obv die and one rev punch as third stater, in Triton VIII (lots 444 and 445, respectively).

752563.jpg
Ionia Uncertain (BC 600-550) Geometric - EL 1/32590 viewsca 600-550 BC. EL 1/3 Stater - Trite (12mm, 4.66g). Geometric type. Geometric design consisting of an in-folded square bisected by crossing lines / Incuse punch with "fishbone" pattern of lines and dots. Good VF.
90000601.jpg
Ionia Uncertain (BC 600-550) Geometric - EL 1/48265 viewsca 625-600 BC. EL 1/48 Stater (5mm, 0.27g). Milesian standard. Geometric type. Pellet in center of linear diamond shape within linear rectangle; striations in outer margins / Incuse square punch. VF.

The pellet within the diamond shape on the obverse is similar to the depiction of the eye on some early schematic lion head issues (cf. Weidauer 122 and Elektron II 26). It is therefore possible that these coins constitute a new denomination for that series.
vcoin1609LG.jpg
Ionia Uncertain (BC 600-550) Geometric - EL 1/6638 viewsca 600-550 BC. EL 1/6 Stater - Hekte (9-10mm, 2.29g). Geometric type. Geometric design consisting of an in-folded square bisected by crossing lines / Incuse punch with "fishbone" pattern of lines and dots. Good VF.

image00101.jpg
Ionia Uncertain (BC 600-550) Geometric bee - EL 1/6482 viewsca 7th-6th cent BC. EL 1/6 Stater - Hekte (2.30g). Milesian standard. Bee / Ornamented incuse punch. EF. Extremely rare.
710950.jpg
Ionia Uncertain (BC 600-550) Lion - EL 1/2676 viewsca 600 BC. EL Hemistater (8.35g). Phokaian standard. Figural type. Head of roaring lion right / Irregular incuse. Good VF. Unique.

While this coin appears to belong to Wiedauer's Series XLIII (lion head), the style of both the lion and the incuse are somewhat different. In particular, the incuses on the Wiedauer coins are shallower and have rough irregular patterns in relief. The incuse on the present coin is much deeper and has a smooth surface that flows to varying depths. Although these differences suggest this coin belongs to another series or issue, it is also possible, because there are no published hemistaters of this type, that this coin represents the norm for this particular denomination.

Ionia Uncertain (BC 600-550) Lion 1 - EL 1/12236 viewsca 600-550 BC. EL Hemihekte (1/12 Stater) (9mm, 1.01g). Roaring lion's head left / Ornamented incuse punch. Unpublished in the standard references, but see CNG 61 (9/2002), lot 710 for a previous example. VF.
700280.jpg
Ionia Uncertain (BC 600-550) Lion 1 - EL 1/6380 viewsca 600-550 BC. EL 1/6 Stater - Hekte (2.25g). Milesian standard. Figural type. Head of lion right / Single divided punch with volute design. Unpublished. Near VF.

Ionia Uncertain (BC 600-550) Lion 1 - EL 1/6557 viewsca 600 BC. EL Hekte - 1/6 Stater (2.42g). Milesian standard. Figural type. Head of roaring lion right on striated background / Double incuse square punches. Unpublished. Good VF. Apparently unique.

A few very rare issues of electrum have a lion forepart on a horizontally-striated field (cf. CNG 69, lots 444 and 447), but this is apparently the first appearance of lion’s head on a vertically-striated field.

Ionia Uncertain (BC 600-550) Lion 1 - EL 1/6269 viewsca 600-550 BC. EL Hekte (10mm, 2.24g). Two back to back lions' heads, facing downward with open jaws and lolling tongues, a volute decoration between / Single divided punch with volute design. Unpublished in the standard references. Good VF.

The style of the obverse of this type has a resemblance to similar hemihektes of Miletos (cf. SNG Kayhan 444–8), but the attribution of those pieces is based on their incuses, all of which have geometric shapes or pellets similar to the staters that are conclusively proven to have been from Miletos (cf. SNG Kayhan 440–1). Further study, however, may eventually prove the attribution of these plain-incuse issues to Miletos as well.
