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.

This coin may not belong to the same series as the Weidauer coins, which are not only larger denominations but also exhibit a different style of wings (curved rather than pointed) and incuse punches.

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.

Ionia Uncertain (BC 600-550) Lion - EL 1/2981 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 1/12313 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 Unpublished in the standard references, but see CNG 61 (9/2002), lot 710 for a previous example.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.

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 4 - EL 1/12169 viewsca 600-550 BC. EL Hemihekte – Twelfth Stater (8mm, 1.19g). Lydo-Milesian standard. Figural type. Head of lion right / Incuse square. VF. Very rare.

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.
