Phokaia (BC 387-326) EL Hekte - B10272 viewsca 387-326 BC. EL Hekte (2.56g, 10mm). Laureate female head (Sappho), hair in sakkos; below, small seal / Quadripartite incuse square. Lightly toned and unusually well centered, gVF. Carr coll.

Bodenstedt notes 36 examples of this emission. Most examples omit the small seal due to the strike not being well centered. The obverse portrait is thought to be that of the female Greek poet Sappho, a native of Lesbos. A similar female portrait is to be found on a rare and unpublished Stater of Lampsakos [see CNG Auc. 100 lot 74].

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).”
