Kebren (BC 450) Hemidrachm867 viewsca 480 BC. AR Hemidrachm (1.78g). Head of ram right; below, lizard right / Forepart of bull right within incuse square. Good VF, toned. Well struck on good metal. Ex Triton VI (1/2003), lot 390; Leu 42 (5/1987), lot 294; Niggeler Coll. (Leu/Münzen und Medaillen, 12/1965), lot 396; R. Jameson Coll., 2295.

The Boston and Jameson catalogs attributed this type to Samos, although Barron did not include this coinage in his corpus of Samian coinage. Presumably, the earlier catalogs’ attribution was based on the parallel of the reverse type to various issues at Samos. The obverse type, however, with its small lizard control device, stands in contrast to such an attribution, and without further evidence, an attribution to Samos must be viewed as speculative.

The obverse type of a ram’s head left is very similar, stylistically, to the early coinage of Kebren. Although the type is not published with a tunny fish beneath the ram’s head, which is usually indicative of Kyzikos, there are other symbols, such as a bird, that do appear on the Kebren coinage beneath the ram.

Kebren (BC 520-480) EL 1/24 Stater1225 viewsLate 6th-early 5th centuries BC. EL 1/24 Stater (7mm, 0.69g). Head of ram left / Incuse square punch. Gemini VII, lot 496, otherwise, unpublished. Good VF, light scuff on obverse.

Although there are a few electrum issues known with a ram’s head (cf. Weidauer 50-1 and Boston MFA 1756), all are distinctly different in style from this coin. At the same time, the style of the ram’s head here is a perfect match to the type found on the early silver issues at Kebren (cf. Rosen 531). SNG von Aulock 7775 and NY Sale XX, lot 197 appear to be hektes with this same style.
