Bodenstedt interpreted the head as a portrait of the Persian satrap Tissaphernes. While Tissaphernes was a bad candidate - he was executed in 395 BC (while the coin was issued some decades later) - it is not yet clear whether the head is meant to be a portrait altogether. J.H. Kroll called the 'satrapal portraits' "generic rather than individualized representations" (The Emergence of Ruler Portrait, in: Schultz/von den Hoff (eds), Early Hellenistic Portraiture (Cambridge 2007), p. 114), and C. Harrison has convincingly shown that many of the so-called 'satrapal portraits' are meant to represent the heroized Persians who raised Darius I to the Persian throne (Numismatic Problems in the Achaemenid West, in: Gorman/Robinson (eds), Oikistes. Studies Offered in Honor of A.J. Graham (Leiden 2002), pp. 301-319). Harrison's theory does not apply in this case, since the head gear does not have that famous knot at the forehead. So it may well be that one of the satraps of the 370s and 360s is intended, perhaps Autophradates, then satrap of Lydia and the fiercest opponent of the satrap of Paphlagonia Datames during the satraps' revolt 368-358 BC.

Phokaia (BC 477-388) B- - EL 1/6 Stater2077 viewsca 478-387 BC. EL Hekte (2.50g), struck ca 410 BC. Head of bearded Persian satrap (Pharnabazos) left, wearing a Persian tiara bound with an elaborate diadem; behind, seal swimming downwards / Quadripartite incuse square. Unique and apparently unpublished. aEF.

This coin bears what is surely a portrait of the famous Persian satrap Pharnabazos, who was active in Hellespont during the last years of the 5th century. He based himself in the city of Daskyleion, which had been a possession of his family since the 470s. His family was related to the Achaemenid royal house. The portrait is surely Pharnabazos since it is exactly the same as on named silver staters issued ca 410 probably in Kyzikos but possibly in Ionia (as BMC, Ionia, p. 352, 12, Kraay/Hirmer 618 and SNG von Aulock 1216). It is fascinating that his portrait should appear on a hekte from Phokaia - the fact that it was hitherto unknown implies that it was originally issued in very small numbers, perhaps as a donative of some kind.

Unrecorded by Bodenstedt. The helmeted head of Athena was a popular coin type in Phokaian coinage in electrum, silver and bronze. This novum has a distinctive laurel wreathed helmet, the crest of which has a split segment exactly as seen on the silver staters and distaters of Thurium, dated to c. 440-400, cf. ACGC 728-730 and HN Italy 1757-1775.

He is clearly not a human dancer since he has an inner ear of his own. We know the dance has finished since he has raised his Silenus mask, which is of a bearded and bald satyr and placed on top of his head. (See SNR 52 pp.44-45 for additional information).”
