Carr_95var.jpg
Mytilene (BC 377-326) EL Hekte - B95 var.16 viewsca 377-326 BC. EL Hekte (2.54g, 9.5mm, 11h). Laureate head of Apollo (Dionysos?) facing right / Head of female facing right, drapery at neck, within linear square. Good VF. Carr coll.

A variation of the usual B95 type or a distinct new type. The obverse head appears different to that of Apollo and more like Dionysos with a laurel wreath rather than the usual ivy leaves. The female head on the reverse is unusually large. CNG described this coin as: “This is one of the few coins of this type that we have handled where the obverse portrait may actually be Dionysos, as there is what looks like a pinecone at the top of the laurel wreath. Normally, Dionysos would be wreathed with ivy leaves, but the wreath on this coin, and this type, usually looks more like laurel leaves. It is possible that this type is either an engraver’s error, or was meant to be a distinct issue different from the Apollo obverse type”.

Kyzikos (BC 600-550) EL 1/48 Stater 6 viewsca 600-550 BC. EL 1/48 Stater (0.32g, 7mm). Large tunny head right / Irregular quadripartite incuse square. gVF. Rare denomination with this specific emission being unknown. Carr coll.Mar 29, 2017

Prow of galley left terminating in forepart of winged hound or wolf; below, tunny left / Quadripartite incuse square. VF. Rare denomination for this type with only one other known - Gemini IX (1/2012), lot 103. Unpublished in standard references. Carr coll.

William Greenwell, in his 1887 tome entitled "The electrum coinage of Cyzicus," notes only a stater of this type and offers the following speculation: "The expedition of the Argonauts plays an important part in the mythical history of Cyzicus, and the prow represented on the stater is probably that of the ship Argo" (pp. 124-125). See also Coin ID #13239 for a hekte.

Upon finding that he could not beat Antaeus by throwing him to the ground as he would reheal due to his parentage (Gaia), Heracles discovered the secret of his power. Holding Antaeus aloft, Heracles crushed him in a bearhug.
