(BC 370) Perikle - 1/6 Stater273 viewsPerikles, ca 380-360 BC. AR Sixth Stater (10mm, 1.18g, 9h). Wedrei mint. Lion right, biting into the hindquarter of a bull crouching left / Head of Athena facing slightly left, wearing crested Corinthian helmet adorned with sphinx on each side; triskeles to left. EF, toned, minor die break on reverse.

Many late Lycian dynastic coins bear legends on both sides that had long been assumed to be the names of two dynasts, who ostensibly issued joint coinages. However, more recent evidence has proved that names such as Wedrei, Zagaba, and Zemuri are actually names of cities, which are probably the mints of the respective issues they appear on (cf. A.G. Keen, Dynastic Lycia: A Political History of the Lycians & Their Relations with Foreign Powers, c. 545-362 BC [Leiden: Brill, 1998], pp. 109 and 154–5).

It should be noted - this obverse die appears to have had details re­engraved before striking the present piece.

The reverse image is reminiscent of the coins of the Lycian dynast Uvug. The weight standard is hard to define, since the weights are somewhat erratic (along with the von Aulock coin, cf. Peus 372, 2002, lot 361). It might be a 1/6th stater on the light stater (c. 8.0-8.6 g), but actually this standard is known from 460 BC onwards only; cf. O. Morkholm and G. Neumann, Die lykischen Munzlegenden (Gottingen 1978), p. 5 f.
