unknown_10_Carr.jpg
Mytilene (BC 477-455) EL Hekte - B-52 viewsca 478-455 BC. EL Hekte (2.50g, 9.5mm, 11h). Head of female right, hair bound in sakkos; Λ¬E flanking neck; all on raised disk / Incuse head of cock right; small square behind neck. gVF.

The cataloguer at CNG described this coin as “Unique.” If genuine, this is a fascinating and important coin as its obverse and reverse are of an unknown type and the obverse appears to be a ‘shield-like’. The obverse has a ‘hint’ of an under-type at 5 o’clock.

The coin is an ‘enigma’: The reverse is a cock's head facing right. B3, B7 and B9 are comparable portraits but all face left. The reverse type suggests that the coin is pre-455 BC but the obverse has a portrait of a woman which is unknown for the early series. The 'shield-like' attachment on the obverse does not have a precedent in the Mytilene series.

The cataloguer notes: “This extraordinary obverse shows a young satyr who has just performed a satyr dance disguised as Silenus, an old satyr. 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).”

Mytilene (BC 412-378) EL Hekte - B65 var.99 viewsca 412-378 BC. EL Hekte (2.59g, 10mm, 7h). Bearded head of Ares right, wearing crested Attic helmet / Head of Amazon right, her hair drawn up and tied, in linear border within incuse square. gVF. Carr coll.

This emission is a variation of Bodenstedt 65. The reverse usually shows Amazon wearing an ornate helmet with the forepart of a griffin. This coin shows the Amazon without a helmet and her hair drawn up and tied. Bodenstedt does describe this variation for which he records 5 examples from a single die. At auction, only 5 other examples have appeared, thus this appears to be only the 11th example known. The obverse is from a die unrecorded by Bodenstedt and unknown from the examples from auctions.

Lykia Uncertain (BC 400) Hemiobol33 views5th-4th century BC. AR Hemiobol (0.33g, 8mm). Helmeted head right / Two dolphins swimming in opposite directions, one above the other, within a dotted circular border.Oct 09, 2016
Kyzikos_Lion_Hemiobol.jpg
Kyzikos (BC 550-510) Hemiobol36 viewsca 550 BC. AR Hemiobol (0.46g, 7mm). Head of lion right, holding tunny in mouth / Irregular incuse punch.

Most probably Kyzikos - the image reminds of the early obols of Kyzikos which depict a tunny with fish in its mouth. The lion is not unknown on later coins from Kyzikos and is mostly combined with a tunny - but no other piece shows a lion holding a fish in its mouth. The drawing of the lion differs very much from these later illustrations. It may be suggested that this coin can be dated at the beginning of the coinage of Kyzikos.

Lampsakos (BC 500-450) EL 1/6 Stater (or Tetrobol?) 72 viewsca 500-450 BC. EL Hekte (or AR Tetrobol?) (2.31g, 10mm). Forepart of Pegasos right / Quadripartite incuse square. VF. Carr coll.

Very rare and catalogued as pale electrum giving the appearance of being a silver coin. There is some substantial debate surrounding these issues. While a rare coin, there are examples of both the left and right facing Pegasos types in what is both clearly EL and what appears to be solely silver. Would the ancients accept a coin that did not have a strong yellowish tint as true EL? The original description by J.P. Six as EL is followed by CNG (see CNG 94, lot 459) and Roma (this coin). The weight is consistent with a Hekte.

Ionia Uncertain (BC 600-550) Griffin - EL 1/6180 viewsca 600-550 BC. EL Hekte - 1/6 Stater (10.5mm, 2.34g). Lydo-Milesian standard. Head of lion(?) left, pellet (sun?) on forehead / Two incuse squares with irregular lines within. Good VF. Very rare.1 commentsSep 24, 2016

(BC 400-350) Uncertain Satrap - Tetartemorion157 viewsEarly-mid 4th cenutry BC. AR Tetartemorion(?) (6mm, 0.21g). Mylasa mint(?). Head of the Persian Great King left / Stellate pattern of Milesian style. Unpublished in the standard references. VF, porous. Extremely rare.

It is unlikely that this coin was part of a Persian-related issue at Miletos. In the early 4th century, however, the Milesian stellate pattern reverse was revived in the fractional coinage of the Hekatomnid satraps of Caria that were struck at Mylasa. These coins used the Milesian weight standard, which is likely the reason for their revival of that particular stellate type. There are a variety of issues from Caria during the Persian period that used Persian iconography, so it is likely that this coin belongs among these issues, and perhaps was struck under the Hekatomnids at Mylasa.

Phokaia (BC 477-388) B- - EL 1/6 Stater116 viewsca 478-387 BC. EL Hekte (2.51g, 9mm). Laureate head of Zeus left, small seal upwards to right / Quadripartite incuse. Toned, gVF. Carr coll.

This is unlisted in Bodenstedt, but cf. Em. 76 describes 2 examples of a similar portrait without laurel wreath. Two other examples are known from auctions – Roma III, lot 209 and Roma XI, lot 321, both same dies.

carr_unknown_8.jpg
Mytilene (BC 521-478) Hemihekte - B-130 viewsca 530-522 BC. EL Hemihekte (1.25g, 9.4mm). Forepart of winged boar, right / Incuse head of man-headed bull / river god, left. Obverse struck from rusty die, otherwise gVF. Carr coll.

The cataloguer at CNG described this coin as “Unpublished. Unique, and this issue is unknown in any other denomination.” A fascinating and important coin, as it confirms that a fraction, in addition to Hekte, was issued by Mytilene. Bodenstedt suggested a series of fractional emissions could be attributed to Mytilene - these have a calf head facing right on the obverse and incuse square on the reverse. This attribution is disputed by many scholars (see Coin ID #12959). In this context, this new fraction is of significant interest.
